The NFL has made it very clear how they feel about players who disrespect the country by kneeling during the National Anthem, but players – and even some team owners – have continued to ignore their demands.
Now, the NFL is getting very serious.
From Conservative Post:
NFL officials are now considering what some are calling a “nuclear option.”
If players aren’t going to behave in a way that keeps the league in the black, the NFL will simply remove them from the equation.
At least during the National Anthem.
Some NFL owners believe there is a strong possibility they will enact an offseason change to the league’s national anthem policy if players’ protests during the anthem persist through the end of this season, reverting to a previous approach of keeping players in the locker room while the anthem is played, according to several people familiar with the league’s inner workings.
“I think that if players are still kneeling at the end of the year, then it could very well happen,” said one person familiar with the owners’ deliberations on anthem-related issues.
Are you still watching the NFL at all, or are you boycotting over their disgusting behavior? Do you think that this change could be a good thing for the NFL, or will nothing happen despite their demands?
