SO THE NFL HAS FINALLY CAME UP WITH A PLAN ON HOW THEY WILL HANDLE PLAYERS THAT KNEEL DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, IT WOULD BE UP TO THE HOME TEAM ON IF TEAMS COME OUT OF THE LOCKER ROOM FOR THE ANTHEM AND IF TEAMS COME OUT AND STILL KNEEL THEN 15 YARD PENALTIES COULD BE ASSESSED. I BELIEVE THAT NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO PEOPLE ARE STILL GOING TO HAVE JUST AS MUCH AS A PROBLEM WITH THE PLAYERS THAT COME OUT AFTER THE ANTHEM IS PLAYED. IT’S JUST THE TIMES WE LIVE IN.  VIA SPORTS ILLUSTRATED

The league is currently being sued by Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid, with the two unsigned free agents alleging that NFL teams colluded to keep them unemployed. Kaepernick was the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem, to protest police brutality, starting a trend that swept across the league in 2016 and ’17.

The NFL addressed the anthem issue at its meetings in October and March, with plans to further discuss it at this meeting. The league also met with the Players Coalition in October, and agreed to a seven-year, $89 million social-justice partnership.

According to sources, the owners also discussed how to move forward its partnership with the players and finalized the terms of the deal.
