Players Who Protested The National Anthem Today Got Devastating News! A62-63 of the NFL League Rulebook States Disrespect Of The National Anthem Will Result With Suspension

If athletes can’t stand for the national anthem then they don’t deserve playing football and getting paid millions of dollars in this country. These days it is such an embarrassing shame what America has turned into.

President Trump today called for football fans to boycott N.F.L. games unless the league fires or suspends players who refuse to stand for the national anthem, saying that players must “stop disrespecting our flag and country.”

This has resulted with at least 100 players kneeling, sitting linking arms, giving black power salutes and not even showing up for the national anthem out of protest.
Players from both the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars were the first to protest by taking a knee ahead of their game at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday morning. No players were kneeling during the playing of God Save The Queen – the British national anthem.

Really they respect the British anthem and not our own well HERE  you can see the full list of the players who protested today and you can share this and boycott them!

It seems that these player forgot that there is NFL rule book and even Roger Goodell will not be able to help them this time!

A62-63 of the NFL League Rulebook. It states:

“The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.
“During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition…
…It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

If these players were not in the NFL they would be like any other citizen. They should not be able to impose their beliefs or attitudes on a national platform.

If athletes can’t stand for the national anthem then they don’t deserve playing football and getting paid millions of dollars in this country. These days it is such an embarrassing shame what America has turned into.

Correction the rule is in The NFL Game Operations Manual!
But still the rule is out there and Roger Goodell needs to do something about it!
