NFL Has New Policy On Kneeling During National Anthem


  • I agree that the NFL players should be fined (heavily) with disrespecting the flag and national Anthem. Those prima donnas need to take there issues elsewhere…. that is not the time or place! Have respect for there fans and our country…Let them form a group elsewhere and let them protest somewhere else..Do their personally need more recognition they all ready have? Grow up you over paid athletes! Stay in the locker room but don’t come out on the field and embarrass our kids and our country..

    • Where else in the world could these “athletes “ make as much money as they do here in America playing sports? Yes! They need to STAND during our national anthem!! I agree with Fran, the field is not the place. Too many good men and women have died for the freedoms we all enjoy!! Maybe u r making too much money!

  • The former president and attorney general in their infinite wisdom led a segment of the black community to believe the police are responsible for where they are in life. This hatred fired up by the aforesaid administration getting involved in two incidents which the police were found to have been doing their job is growing to this day, putting a target on the back of law inforcement causing the the death of same . Some NFL players want to continue this message of hate, based on a falsehood by disrespecting our flag. Protest the police by using your fame to show respect for this country’s flag, and the majority of police, and find a way to root out the racial brutality in the brutal business of policing.

  • Disrespecting our country – that backed and paid for your over priced choice of career is NEVER BE TOLERATED. They say they are protesting the injustice, brutality, and racism in their community. Hmmmmmmm how many of those spoiled brats live in the projects today??? NONE!!! So, they are not protesting “their community mistreatment”.

    When I was younger the football association had a backbone. Athletes were seen as role models – those role models had to live up to that public image. If you decide to beat your wife – you were no longer a player, if you decided to run a dog fighting pit – you were no longer a player, if you were arrested for DWIOR drugs – you were no longer a player, if you kidnap and hold women against their will – you were no longer a player, you raped a woman you were no longer a player, you kill someone you were no longer a player and APPROPITATELY you were BLACKLISTED AND NO OTHER TEAM WOULD TOUCH YOU…. your career ended right there. THATIS WHERE WE NEED TO GO BACK TO. From the first kneeling I quit watching football and I will continue to boycott it until these Children are taught how to act like a professional. NFL is so pathetic!!!!

    • As a Navy veteran, my opinion is these absolute fighting men need to be respected, not the flag. We have Freedom of speech, which includes freedom to protest. Many organizations start off with a prayer which is against our constitution. We have freedom of religion as well as freedom from religion. To impost ones beliefs on others is worse than kneeling for the flag. That’s my opinion as a veteran.

      • How can employees (which the players are) bend a knee while they are working which is what they are doing while on the field? I just can’t see anyone from the UPS, Fed X, my doctors office ,my local hospital, my local food store, my lawyers office, any commercial pilot or any other ’employee’ of any firm doing this while on the job. If they did, I suspect they would be on the unemployment line the following day!

  • You are the ones who disrespect This isn’t your country to begin with You stole it from the native Americans bit you’re proud of your thefts But your pride of destroying other people and occupying their land will be brought down Now you take your downtrodden cave mentality beast nature somewhere else barbarian

  • Sorry NFL….. The Cat is out of the Bag…!! NFL player’s do you want to do something worthwhile and gain some respect?? Get together and march into the inner cities and stop these “Gangs” that are killing our kids….!! Use your wealth & time for a good cause. …!! Just maybe, just maybe, you’ll get some respect….!!

  • It doesn’t matter to me what they do now. They lost my viewership last year. I don’t call it boycotting anymore I call it I’ve lost complete interest in NFL football and those unpatriotic, jump on the bandwagon, sorry excuse for Americans!

    • I stand to honor the promise the flag represents.
      You kneel because that promise has been broken.

      I stand to affirm my belief that all are created equal, and to fight alongside you for that promise.
      You kneel because too few stand with you.

      I stand because we can be better.
      You kneel to remind us to be better.

      I stand to honor all that have fought and died so that we may be free.
      You kneel because not all of us are.

      I stand because I can.
      You kneel for those who can’t.

      I stand to defend your right to kneel.
      You kneel to defend my right to stand.

      I stand because I love this country.
      You kneel because you love it too.

  • I totally disagree what happen to freedom of making our own choices especially when this country don’t respect the true meaning of our flag.
