New policy requires on-field players, personnel to stand for anthem

Recommended Posts



They should just kneel for the entire game instead of playing.  That would be entertaining.

Damn, I guess I can't play "fantasy who the fug is sitting, or kneeling, or planking" this next season.

I like the compromise. Best for both sides.

Regardless of what side of the argument you're on, it seems like a reasonable agreement.  You can stay in the locker room if you want to and do whatever you want during the anthem.  No penalty or repercussions.  But if you're on the field during the anthem, you stand.

Both sides win.

/Issue

I wonder which side will be the first to take issue with a good old fashioned compromise?

Yeah. Peppers did this last year too.

I have a better idea: don't get your panties in a wad over what someone else does during the national anthem. The real failure of American freedom is our inability to allow others to practice theirs in a way we disagree with without feeling like we have to vehemently abuse ours in retaliation. And that is how all of our "freedoms" end up as a farce.

Now we just need a league personnel that works on the sideline to announce that he/she is a Jehovah's Witness or other religion that does not stand for the flag and this new policy, which effects league personel as well as the players, is discriminatory to his/her religious beliefs to blow this policy up. Make it all one big poo show.

One thing to remember here also is that the CBA will be up for renewal in a couple years.  This is a hot ticket item that is "taken" from the players.  It is an easy "giveback" by the owners.  Almost everything happening right now is in position for a new CBA.  Tepper was specifically tapped as a major asset in the future CBA.  If players want a platform to promote something on their boss's clock they are going to have to pay for it come CBA renegotiation.  

 

Almost certainly whole teams will stay in the locker room.
