Breaking: NFL Just Hit Every Anthem Protestor With This Shocking Announcement

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell

According to the Independent Journal Review the NFL just got devastating news, one that will apparently put a stop to their reckless behavior. Well, it was about time for the kneelers to be punished for carrying out protests during “work hours.” That’s right.

After a month of record numbers of NFL national anthem protests, ticket sales are down, ratings have plummeted, and fans have begun boycotting the league. Some NFL teams have implemented new policies requiring their players to stand, while others have allowed their players to continue voicing their opinions during the anthem.

It would seem that the NFL is going to make some serious changes in their rulebook regarding the national anthem. This is clearly a hailmary to save their business. Despite what the leftists and the whiny ass millionaires on the field think, we don’t turn on football for anti-American rhetoric.

There has been a change recently regarding the anthem, how do I know?

The policy in 2014 reads that failure to be on the field at the start of the national anthem “may result in disciplinary action from the League office.” But now, the policy reads that failure to be on the field “will result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violation of the above, including first offenses.”

Apparently they have added more punishment in the new policy and removed disciplinary action coming from Goodell’s office. This means that no one is doing the job they were hired to do.

Goodell issued a memo on Tuesday:

“Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem. It is an important moment in our game. We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us. We also care deeply about our players and respect their opinions and concerns about critical social issues. The controversy over the Anthem is a barrier to having honest conversations and making real progress on the underlying issues. We need to move past this controversy, and we want to do that together with our players.”

The kneeling protest, started by former Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, began with the purpose of raising awareness to police brutality towards minorities in the U.S.. Ever since Colin Kaepernick took the knee last year, there’ve been many teams and players who’ve joined him.
