All NFL Players and Team Personnel To Stand for National Anthem In 2018 ~ NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell

New York, NY...The policy adopted today was approved in concert with the NFL’s ongoing commitment to local communities and our country — one that is extraordinary in its scope, resources, and alignment with our players. We are dedicated to continuing our collaboration with players to advance the goals of justice and fairness in all corners of our society.




The efforts by many of our players sparked awareness and action around issues of social justice that must be addressed. The platform that we have created together is certainly unique in professional sports and quite likely in American business. We are honored to work with our players to drive progress.

It was unfortunate that on-field protests created a false perception among many that thousands of NFL players were unpatriotic. This is not and was never the case.

This season, all league and team personnel shall stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem. Personnel who choose not to stand for the Anthem may stay in the locker room until after the Anthem has been performed.

We believe today’s decision will keep our focus on the game and the extraordinary athletes who play it—and on our fans who enjoy it.



POLICY STATEMENT



The 32 member clubs of the National Football League have reaffirmed their strong commitment to work alongside our players to strengthen our communities and advance social justice. The unique platform that we have created is unprecedented in its scope, and will provide extraordinary resources in support of programs to promote positive social change in our communities.



The membership also strongly believes that:



All team and league personnel on the field shall stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.
The Game Operations Manual will be revised to remove the requirement that all players be on the field for the Anthem.
Personnel who choose not to stand for the Anthem may stay in the locker room or in a similar location off the field until after the Anthem has been performed.

A club will be fined by the League if its personnel are on the field and do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.

Each club may develop its own work rules, consistent with the above principles, regarding its personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.

The Commissioner will impose appropriate discipline on league personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.​

Open Season

The players used their positions to call attention to the growing shooting of unarmed Black men in America.
It is Open Season on unarmed Black men by cops in America.
What is the NFL going to do to tell the cops it's murder to shoot unarmed Black men?

      It's about time the NFL owners put their foot down and told their employees what is demanded of them.
      It is not the job of the NFL to tell the cops it's murder to shoot unarmed Black men. The First Amendment ensures freedom of speech, but it does not give you any right to a captive listener audience.
      Shut The F Up and play football!

    So you're saying that there is no instance where a cop can shoot an "unarmed" person justifiably?

Terrible decision. NFL caved in to the lunatic right wing.

It is not disrespectful to kneel as the anthem is played. Most of America sits on a couch or recliner as the anthem is played. Or leaves the room to go pee so they are ready for the first quarter.

          Did any one of those players kneel in protest during the time when the clock was running (besides to end the game)? Because as far as I could tell all the protests occurred before the clock had started running.

          Every player still did their job.

If the fans we're smart enough, if one player chooses to kneel, the whole stadium empties, and never fills up again! Send the morons back to the ghetto! I like what I heard one retired "BLACK" player say, the black community needs to learn respect for the flag, women, and authority! Tell me what is wrong with that approach? If your a Snowflake, you'll sit just to show your stupidity, and by the way, open season on any citizen black or white that doesn't comply with reasonable requests from the police! Police are just like you and I, they have families and lives just like most of us, the last thing they want to do is shoot or kill someone, believe me!

        When someone is told to stop, show me your hands, get on the ground etc by the police that person needs to comply. The Police don’t run around all Willy nilly screwing with people. You stupid dipships that teach your kids from the start that they don’t have to respect others or listen to the police are a bunch of degenerates. It’s simple you get caught you better do what your told. It’s too bad that slot of African Americans think there are owed something just because of the color of their skin!!!!

          Another racist Trumptard comment
          These people are human beings, a word Trumptards dont know because they think you have to be white to be a human being
          As a white man that served 36 years to protect this country, I am appalled that these un Americans voted for such a racist turd, and continue to support his lies
          Nice to see the rest of the world has not drank the koolaid
