NFL players can no longer kneel during the national anthem

Colin Kaepernick started it to protest racial inequality. President Trump enflamed it into a national debate about patriotism. Now the controversy over kneeling during The Star-Spangled Banner at football games has changed NFL policy. The league passed a rule Wednesday to outlaw any outward protest to the American flag during the national anthem, an offense punishable by a fine. The NFL mandates that players and team personnel present on the sideline "shall stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem." Donít want to? Stay in the locker room, the policy says. Or, your team could fine you. Vice President Pence tweeted, " #Winning." Is it really a victory? Nah. Players will find ways to protest. Perhaps it's more about the NFL brand.
