    The NFL Players’ Association (NFLPA) filed a grievance against the NFL on Tuesday over the league’s new policy requiring players to remain standing during the national anthem.

    “The union’s claim is that this new policy, imposed by the NFL’s governing body without consultation with the NFLPA, is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement and infringes on player rights,” the NFLPA said in a statement.

    The article goes on to state the following:

    The union said the NFL had also agreed to holding “confidential discussions” with the NFLPA to find a solution instead of immediately moving to legal action.

    NFL owners voted in May to approve a policy requiring players on the field to stand during the national anthem. Players who kneel or are otherwise disrespectful during the anthem are subject to a fine

    Poor NFL. They are dazed and confused. Too bad, they couldn't just stand for the national anthem. Doubling down won't help their cause. Patriotism binds us together as a nation. Their antics divide us which hurts ratings and their image. A PR firm might be in their future.

    I left the NFL for good last season. Did not watch one game and frankly don't miss it at all. However, the same goes with all sports. Don't know why except for the NFL. Just not that appealing anymore. Never mind, it's the politics!
