Details of new NFL national-anthem policy appear to show league caved to Trump

NFL caves to TrumpThe NFL approved a new national-anthem policy on Wednesday in response to ongoing player protests that took over the 2017 season, and the league appears to have caved to the wishes of President Donald Trump and others who stressed the importance of "respecting the flag."

ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted out the expected details of the policy.

Colin Kaepernick garnered national attention for his protests two seasons ago, kneeling during the anthem to bring attention to issues including police brutality and racial inequality in the justice system. While Kaepernick was out of the league in 2017, protests of a similar nature became more common across the NFL, with players including Michael Bennett and Marshawn Lynch taking part.

TVNL Comment:  Another erosion to the US Constitution.  The same people who demand their right to own assault weapons by citing the Second Amendment refuse to respect the First Amendment's right to freedom of speech.
