The NFL is putting anthem protesters over fans with this rule change

For two seasons the NFL has struggled over a fairly simple question of what to do with the disrespectful anthem protesters.

Goodell could’ve nipped it in the bud by fining or suspending Colin Kaepernick, and it may never have become a story outside of the sports pages.

But now rumors are the league is poised to “solve” the problem in the worst way possible.

It’s hard to believe the NFL could devise a solution that’s almost worse than the problem of players disrespecting the flag, the military, and our national anthem week-in, and week-out.

But here’s the latest.

According to ESPN’s Jim Trotter, the NFL may consider a rule change that requires players to stay in the locker room during the national anthem.

This just goes to show that the NFL would rather turn away fans than cross the anthem protesters

When the idea was first floated in the fall of 2017, Trump sounded off on Twitter saying, “That’s almost as bad as kneeling!”

Sadly, the disrespect shown by these athletes emboldening radical anti-American activists.

In Baltimore, The Star-Spangled Banner Centennial Monument, which commemorates the Battle of Baltimore and the writing of the Star-Spangled Banner, was vandalized with red paint and the words “racist anthem” were spray painted on the sidewalk.

What are your thoughts on the NFL’s potential “solution” to its anthem problem?

Do you think the disrespect shown by professional athletes is spreading, causing vandals to deface monuments related to the anthem?

    God , Country, Family, Every member of the Military, All members of the Police Forces State,and National, Firefighters and First Medical responders are what matters. Let the NFL peddle their butts to Foreign Countries we don’t need or want them. Sooner or later some other League will be created with players who are employees not Drama Queens.

    Au contraire, the term “overpay” is correct. It is in fact our brave soldiers and veterans who have put “put it all on the line” in defense of our great country whose service is “darned difficult to quantify with money.” Those jerks who will not make the simple gesture of respect to our flag by standing during the national anthem don’t deserve to be paid at all. Therefore, by definition, they are overpaid!

    Concerning the Super Bowl between the NE Pats and Phila. Eagles. Both teams have stated that all players will stand for the National Anthem and Salute to our Flag. Game will be in Phila.

    You got that right. I fought for that flag in Viet Nam and I will never turn my back on our flag. If the players refuse to respect our FLAG I will never watch their game.

    Concerning “overpay,” the game of pro-football is hazardous to human bodies by nature of the game. The Pats had to go without their Hall of Fame tight end, Gronkowsi last night, who was benched after a collision of helmets with defenders render Gronkowski a concussion injury.
    When the game is played, at least at pro-football level, the players “put it all on the line” and that’s darned difficult to quantify with money.

    Record crowd at Phila.-Minn. game last night, 1/21.18 6:30 PM. I tuned to it a few minutes late, but a U.S. Navy sailor did sing the national anthem as I tuned in. A giant American flag, the size of the playing field, was unfurled by uniformed personnel. Whether the TV cameras avoided focusing on players, I can’t say, but the focus & sound were both on flag & anthem. Any players involved in protest had little to no chance of being noticed.
    The players, apart from performing as athletes, have been minimized. They receive notice for one issue and one only. That is playing the game for the fans of the game. They have presented themselves like the gladiators of Roman coliseums presented themselves. They were either criminals serving sentences to fight each other to the death, or paid to take gambles of their own mortality. Therefore, the presentation of national flag and anthem was done in all due respect to the attending patriots. flag, and anthem.

    The players should stay in the locker room during the game, all 60 minutes of it.
