If you are fed up with the anti-American NFL protests, there is bad news coming your way.
The NFL is on the verge of a “solution.”
And the protests are about to take a disgusting turn for the worse.
Rather than own up their problem, NFL owners are trying to sweep it under the rug.
The league could vote in the offseason to institute a rule mandating that no team take the field until the anthem has been played.
The Washington Post reports:
“Some NFL owners believe there is a strong possibility they will enact an offseason change to the league’s national anthem policy if players’ protests during the anthem persist through the end of this season, reverting to a previous approach of keeping players in the locker room while the anthem is played, according to several people familiar with the league’s inner workings.
“I think that if players are still kneeling at the end of the year, then it could very well happen,” said one person familiar with the owners’ deliberations on anthem-related issues.
That person said it was “too early to tell” for certain if the change to the anthem policy will be made by owners and the league. The person was “not sure” if a formal vote of the owners would be required to enact such a change but said, “I think most owners would support it, particularly if players continue to kneel this season.”
This would only further infuriate fans who would see the move as an act of cowardice.
Instead of doing what is right – putting in place a rule like the NBA has which states players must stand during the anthem – the owners are going to cave into the whims of American hating athletes.
It is an admission they have no control over their sport and they have thrown in the towel on trying to market the game to patriotic Americans.
