In yet another change of course the NFL has decided its "players on the field must stand" rule is no longer viable - given the backlash they have received. If there has ever been a bigger group of spineless rich guys than the NFL ownership I can't imagine what it is.

The fact is that a few players kneeling for the anthem is not something the league should even concern itself with. Who cares? A few old white guys and that's about it.

The public could care less, and the claims that the NFL is getting hurt by it are ridiculous. 2017 was yet another revenue record year.

there was an $8 billion revenue pot to share from last year so please, lets stop this nonsense that anthem protests are hurting anybodies bottom line.

the only thing that is hurting the NFL is the way they handle their own business. From their tacit approval of domestic violence to the anthem thing, the head office continually gets it wrong.

That's not what happened, but you're free to believe it is.

"Now the NFL will put the anthem rule on hold after a fresh round of criticism this week."

I guess I got it wrong.

To be fair, your source got it wrong.

The NFL is "freezing" the rule as part of the grievance procedure under the contract with the NFLPA.

I guess to be completely accurate the NFL is getting sued and decided to cut their losses given that demanding someone stand up during the National Anthem is not even vaguely constitutional.

Trump DEMANDS that you stand for his national anthem.

You guess wrong, but that's nothing new.

I've got an idea. Stop singing the national anthem at sporting events. It was eliminated in theatres decades ago,

The treason thing is not helping at the polls, therefore - attack black people!

@realDonaldTrump
The NFL National Anthem Debate is alive and well again - can’t believe it! Isn’t it in contract that players must stand at attention, hand on heart? The $40,000,000 Commissioner must now make a stand. First time kneeling, out for game. Second time kneeling, out for season/no pay!

A better idea is to reinforce the standing and singing of the national anthem at all public events, including sports events and theatres.

It was these kind of values that helped make NA great, and now we have all these useless immigrants bringing their loser ways to this country, we have to get back to reinforceing the values that worked in the past.

Apparently it never occurred to you. But what else is new?

I believe such a law was strongly enforced in both Nazi Germany and soviet Russia. All those values do is make a society more narrow minded.

As I am probably the only person on this forum who has attended an NFL game let me explain something: the National Anthem is when you take a piss.

That is a tradition.

I haven't sung or stood for the national anthem in decades - that is how long ago the idea didn't occur to me.

I did record a version of ours for a really good flight video made by Canada's ( at the time) oldest licensed helicopter pilot though.

Just so you know: YOU TRUMPHATERS are the freespeech takers, ( Alex Jones for example) which makes YOU the commies, nazis, and globalists.

WE have seen your death tolls
