Owners, Players To Discuss Anthem Protests Today
(New York, NY) — NFL players and owners will talk seriously about national anthem protests when they meet today in New York. Players, union reps and owners will discuss the polarizing topic before the regularly-scheduled fall league meeting. The NFL and the Players’ Association issued a joint statement last week saying there has been no policy change requiring players to stand for the anthem. That followed a memo to teams from Commissioner Roger Goodell saying the league would like players to stand. The athletes say the protests are about taking a stance against police brutality and racial inequality, not the military, flag, or anthem.
