    The National Football League took a beating last year, and rightly so. Top league officials and team owners both dropped the ball on the shameful protests that took place each week during the national anthem, when some players knelt on the field to protest, they said, police brutality.

    Last week, the NFL finally dealt with the problem. Under a new rule, teams can hold their players in the locker rooms during the playing of the anthem, but if they come onto the field, they have to stand. No more kneeling allowed for the multimillionaires who work three hours a week playing a kids' game.

    But now, a black columnist for the New York Daily News, has a new suggestion for what the NFL should do.

    Now that the patriot police have turned what was a peaceful protest about police brutality and social injustice into a flag-waving, jingoistic shame fest, the NFL can make amends with the black players it has insulted with its new no-kneel policy by singing a different tune.

    For just one week of the league's 17-week season, the NFL should bench "The Star Spangled Banner," and replace it with ó wait for it ó "The Negro National Anthem."

    The song, "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing," was dubbed the "national black anthem" in 1919 by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Greene points out that the song lyrics "inspire hope."

    Is this it?

    Makes no difference what they play, most of us won't ever watch the nfl again so they can play dead skunk in the middle of the road if they like. I would just be happy to see the nfl completely fold up. Maybe some serious pro Americans will open a real football franchise that still hires white boys. The nfl sucks and has for 40 years

    Hopefully it's coming back in 2020. Oliver Luck, former player and father to Andrew Luck, has accepted the position of commissioner for the XFL. In addition, another league seems to be popping up called the Alliance of American football, they currently have six out of eight teams announced.
