NFL announces new policy that will fine teams if players kneel during national anthem

The NFL announced Wednesday that all players must stand when on the field as the national anthem is played before a game — or they can choose to remain in the locker room without penalty.

The league’s teams have all agreed to the new policy, and they will be subject to a fine if a player disobeys, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said at a news conference.

The union representing players lashed out at the league’s decision, tweeting that it was not consulted about the rule change.
