    The NFL Players Association announced it has filed a grievance challenging the league's new national anthem policy.



    In May, NFL owners unanimously approved a new anthem policy that requires players to stand if they are on the field during the performance of the Star-Spangled Banner. The new policy gives players the option to remain in the locker room, if they want. The NFL subjects the teams to a fine, if a player or a member of team personnel does not show respect for the anthem.


    Players have been kneeling, sitting and raising fists during the national anthem in an effort to raise awareness for racial and social injustice in America since Colin Kaepernick took a knee before a preseason game in 2016.


    "Our union filed its non-injury grievance today on behalf of all players challenging the NFL’s recently imposed anthem policy. The union’s claim is that this new policy, imposed by the NFL’s governing body without consultation with the NFLPA, is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement and infringes on player rights.


    In advance of our filing today, we proposed to the NFL to begin confidential discussions with the NFLPA Executive Committee to find a solution to this issue instead of immediately proceeding with litigation. The NFL has agreed to proceed with those discussions and we look forward to starting them soon."


    The NFL's protests during the national anthem have drawn criticism from President Donald Trump. Jerry Jones and Bob McNair are among the NFL owners that have called on players to stand. Kaepernick and his former 49ers teammate Eric Reid have both filed collusion cases against the NFL.

    You have all week to protest. Protest on your own time. Not when you're on the clock.

    The more these NFL clowns protest, the better Trump looks......he's winning more & more people because of how lost the liberals are, & the resist movement has completely backfired.

    Looks like ratings are likely to decline even more this year.

    Even as a bettor one doesn't need to watch in order to wager the games.

    I've been going to NFL games for some time now. Back in the day, they used to play the National Anthem BEFORE the players took the field.

    Why cant the NFL go back to doing that?

    Yeah, the NFL should keep everyone in the licker room like before, & no more kneeling down will occur.

    yep, this was suggested,, but it does kindof smear a turd on the flag in this way too??? doesnt it??

    I mean, it would be the only sport that does it this way,,, which would signal that a huge majority of the filth in the nfl doesnt like America? (thats the optics of it)

    so it seems like the compromise was pretty decent,, if you want to protest,, do it in the dark hallways and let americans and nfl fans know who you are,, so we can NOT buy your jerserys,, and know who to cheer for to get injured,, lol

    They have all week to protest, there are 10080 minutes in a week... yet they choose these precise "3 minutes" to do it, and leave the other 10077 minutes alone.

    They need to just give it a rest!

    The NFL should allow them to kneel during the Anthem at the nearest railroad tracks, and they can take their chances.
