NFL owners approve new national anthem policy

Roger Goodell's statement on national anthem policy

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:

1. All team and league personnel on the field shall stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.

2.The Game Operations Manual will be revised to remove the requirement that all players be on the field for the Anthem.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.

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

I don't have a single American flag setup in my office and my boss has never said anything. Of course my company isn't being paid to be pretend to be patriotic though.

Getting mad about it is really the stupid part.

There’s a fine line between patriotism and nationalism. Like don’t get mad about dictators having military parades and then turn around and demand people show respect when you fly stealth bombers over the stadium and demand allegiance to piece of cloth.

Yep.

LeBron should just shut up and dribble. It would keep him from looking the fool while pontificating from the lofty heights of his 8th grade education.

That's how this thing should have been worded. If you are in uniform, you are a paid representative of the NFL, you do as we say. Out of uniform, do as you please (as long as it fits the character clause in their contracts). It's really always been that simple. If my boss tells me to get to work and I take a knee, I'm guessing I will be filing for unemployment pretty quickly.

So if the employer doesn't like them not standing during the anthem, why do they seem to not care about their other employers selling booze and merchandise during the anthem?

A lot of us don't like a particular company policy. If it bothers us that much, we find another job.

Somebody doesn't understand the difference between an employee and a client. It's not their responsibility or place to say what their clients employees do.
