REPORT: Two NFL Teams Are Creating Policies To Force Players To Stand During Anthem

San Francisco 49ers v Arizona Cardinals

Two weeks ago at a rally in Huntsville, Alabama, President Donald Trump drew a line in the sand and called out the many NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem. The President said, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say ‘get that son of a b**** off the field right now – he’s fired.”

“For a week, (that owner would) be the most popular person in this country. Because that’s a total disrespect of our heritage. That’s a total disrespect for everything we stand for,” Trump continued.
According to a report from activist Shaun King, he’s spoken to at least two players from two different NFL teams and they tell him that their organization is currently in the process of drawing up a policy that will force all of them to stand during the playing of the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’
