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

Share:

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.
