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.

"social justice"


makes me laugh every time I hear it.

I've always wondered why they don't just perform the anthem before the teams come out of the locker rooms.

....additionally, I've always wondered why the national anthem is played beforehand anyway.

IIRC, they didn't start coming out for the anthem until 2010.

Easy fix. Teams stay in locker room until after anthem.

Problem solved.

Yeah but, when you're offered a multi million dolla contract from the U.S. government to show your patriotism - $$$ has a way of talking.

Just make it so that no one is out there for the Anthem. Easiest solution.

It really is.

Or make it like 30 minutes before the game starts. All the super patriotic fans can get in early and do their thing. Players will be back in the locker room, everyone wins.

Who is saying they can't? Companies make tone deaf, hypocritical rules to assuage whiney customers whenever they want. This is no different.

I hope whole teams just stay off the field. The whole anthem before a football game thing doesn't really make a lot of sense anyway.
