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.

Pawn, you're bleeding out all over this thread. It is cute when you get in your feelings though. Thanks for the nice pic, autograph it for me maybe?

If you're a snowflake SJW that's upset because it doesn't give these athletes the proper stage anymore for their demonstrations, then you're being unreasonable to the NFL as a business entity. If you're the lowest common denominator who wants everyone on the field to respect 'Murica regardless of their opinion, you're being unreasonable on the free speech this country prides itself on.

If you want to voice your displeasure, just don't show up.
This is an acceptable middle ground with the proper punishments in place for those that violate it.
Agreed.

Do you not realize that they tried to put out the fire by dropping gasoline? Do you not realize that they didn't consult the NFLPA? Enjoy the upcoming multiple protests and penalties that further blow this whole thing up in our faces. This topic just got impossibly bigger.

lmao if you want to protest, do it in the locker room?? You think that's going to fix this? Seriously?
They can do what they want after working hours on a public right of way as long as it doesnt restrict the flow of normal traffic.

I know of no Union that can set up a picket line and protest on the employers grounds.

It should be the focal point of live sporting events. And the anthem they play on loop should be performed by ICP. I think this sort of league could really thrive and bring us all together.
Baseball is apparently getting closer all the time. I came back to KC and went to the Royals' last home game last year to say goodbye to the free agents (although two came back).

My Mom invited my ultra-right-wing religious aunts. They stood, put their hands over their hearts, and also sang loudly and made super-duper cartoonish gestures to show how patriotic they were. It was like a competition to see who could be the most emphatically patriotic. Not just during the anthem, but then God Bless America, and then God Bless the USA.

Soon every half inning will have a patriotic song. Utopia.
