NFL players' union to join owners' meeting on national anthem protests

Noah Ferguson | 13 October, 2017, 07:44

The NFL had to then release a statement Wednesday clarifying what he meant. Commissioner Roger Goodell, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith and player leadership will attend league meetings next week to discuss how to progress on social issues and discuss the subject of protesting during the anthem in a larger scale.

Players may have a decision to make in the near future regarding the act of kneeling during the anthem should the National Football League require all to stand during the anthem, and according to a report Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews has a good idea of what he'd do if a rule was put in place.

"There has been no change in the current policy regarding the anthem", the statement read. "Everyone who is part of our National Football League community has a tremendous respect for our country, our flag, our anthem and our military, and we are coming together to deal with these issues in a civil and constructive way". In fact, I think it is safe to say that there are no private sector employers (outside of sports) that requires compulsory patriotic observance.

The problem with this argument is that players are being compelled to participate in the observance of the national anthem. His decision to bench protesting players, however, faced public resistance.

As much as the higher-ups in the NFL want it to go away, it doesn't look like the issue of players standing or kneeling during the national anthem will go away anytime soon. This was the first Sunday after Trump made his comments.

"It's so important if that's what the country is looking at, to look at [the protest] differently". Matthews, the Titans' leading receiver, has remained in the locker room alone over the past two games while the rest of the team stood for the anthem.
