NFL owners say players must stand for the National Anthem
This season, NFL players must stand during the National Anthem, team owners decided Wednesday in Atlanta -- a reaction to fierce backlash against some who took a knee in symbolic opposition to the systemic oppression of people of color, including by police.
A statement from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said team owners unanimously agreed that the NFL can fine a team whose players protests on the sidelines during the National Anthem, but that each team will set will its own rules regarding players who want to kneel. Ref. CNN.
