Re: NFL Anthem Policy

Forced patriotism always works out well.

OTOH, I'm looking forward to watching the entire Jets squad kneel this fall as a show of brotherhood.

I don't see any way this doesn't bring more attention to their cause.

And finally, it seems like the NFL just took a political cue from our president. To anyone not blind with patriotism, this has been about protesting mistreatment of POC by police. Instead, the narrative has been successfully co-opted into "they're disrespecting the military, and this country" by people who can't/won't empathize with the cause.

I think The Rog is going to learn a harsh lesson from this one. He should've left it up to individual teams to decide what they were going to do.
