NFL Owners And Players Are Speaking Out Against The Anthem Ban

Spare me your crocodile tears about the new NFL Anthem rule
We want people to stand. If a player chooses to protest on the field during the anthem, the National Football League will fine the team.
"I love the First Amendment and I encourage these players to use their platforms to influence change, raise awareness or whatever it is they're trying to do", said Lahren.
I agree that the N.F.L.'s ham-handed policy to fine teams whose players kneel during the national anthem is silly. He added: "you know, that's something ideally could have been taken care of when it first started, it would have been a lot easier, but if they did that, they did the right thing".
"And most particularly, (we considered) the members of our military and veterans communities who we've heard a lot from over the previous year about what it means to respect the flag and the national anthem". Denver linebacker Brandon Marshall said.
"It's kind of what's wrong with our country right now", Kerr said. People in high places are trying to divide us, divide loyalties, make this about the flag as if the flag is something other than it really is - which is a representation of what we're about, which is diversity, peaceful protests, right to free speech. "It's about peacefully protesting".
Baldwin said he believed the protests would've died out on their own during the upcoming season, but said the National Football League "really missed it with a policy that could reignite demonstrations". I respect the man because he's a human being, but he's just being more divisive. The NFL continues to conflate players' kneeling protest with a lack of patriotism or respect for America.
(3) the President, Vice President, an employee of the United StatesPostal Service or the Postal Regulatory Commission, or any other executive branch employee (as such term is defined under section 2105 of title 5, United States Code). When it comes to the anthem policy, Baldwin said his initial reaction was an emotional one of disappointment that "pulls on the heartstrings" because players weren't involved in the decision-making process.
"We'll review the whole situation internally", said Rooney. Their flag was supposed to cover them and cover me as well, and at that particular time we were saying that flag didn't cover everyone.
You might think that the proportion of African-Americans among National Football League staff has been rising over time.
To what extent do you support or oppose this policy?
"Pretty much. I think that's part of it".
"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", commissioner Roger Goodell said in his statement on Wednesday. One might have thought that 25% of the coaches being black in a country where blacks make up less than 13% of the population might be seen as progress, but that's not actually the issue here. Will they fine fans who improperly wear the flag in violation of the code for handling the flag? We didn't have an issue a year ago.
A Washington Post-Kaiser poll conducted this winter showed that 53 percent of Americans (and 58 percent of whites polled) said it is "never appropriate" to kneel during the anthem.
