On Wednesday, the NFL owners supposedly unanimously approved a new policy that requires players to stand if they are on the field during the performance. It does, however, give the players the option to remain in the locker room if they prefer. If a player kneels or sits during, then the team is subjected to a fine. Those teams will also have the option to fine any team personnel for the infraction.

Donald Trump is happy. He said “You have to stand proudly for the National Anthem. You shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there. Maybe they shouldn’t be in the country… the NFL owners did the right thing.” The NFL’s decision to pursue this policy seems like the NFL is trying to avoid having the president turn its back on their large corporation. Junior Sloan Martin said “This is ridiculous, the NFL has gone too far.” Jack Iuliano disagrees, he said “Finally the NFL has figured it out – players not standing for the National Anthem and making a fool of the sport is awful, hopefully it’s gone forever.”

    This is a great case for why the country needs an alternative football league to the NFL. This new rule will make the AAF stronger.
