NFL, players agree to suspend controversial national anthem policy

The National Football League and the players association said in a joint statement Thursday that it has made the decision to freeze the controversial national anthem protest policy. Two months ago, the league announced players must stand for the anthem or remain in the locker while it’s performed. Now, the policy has been suspended to allow “constructive dialogue to continue.”

It's incredible how bad the NFL is at figuring this shit out.

Their policies are 100% reactive with absolutely no forethought for future ramifications.

If there are PR classes going on in college, they should do a case study on this. Exactly what NOT to do

Yeah, this is dumb. If it were my business, it's simply "no politics". Feel free to use your own celebrity and own personal time to promote your causes....but gameday is not the place for it.

How is the anthem political, exactly? What party or agenda does it represent?

I don't think I've seen a single athlete kneel during their anthem at an Olympic medal ceremony.

Or would you argue that raising a flag at the workplace is a green light for political protests on company time?

You want to keep politics out of the workplace, start by keeping politics out of the workplace.

I agree with B2B but Trump will never let this go. Too much red meat for nothing.

It's what, $6M? NFL is a multi billion dollar industry. This is not about the money. Well, the money from the military, anyway.
