Giants John Mara Most fans demand players stand for national anthem

The rule still says only that all team members merely "should" stand. Trying to deal with the controversy over players taking a knee during the national anthem, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell failed to put the issue to rest. Mara said there was some conversation about changing league rules, which say players should stand for the anthem, but he said "the policy is not going to change". The most important part is that they are speaking their mind. That we all take great pride in and it's also. "But they also understand how it's being interpreted". He said during a political rally in Huntsville, Ala., on September 22 that National Football League owners should fire the players who knelt during the anthem.

"There's no question it's had an impact on the business", New York Giants co-owner John Mara said.

In a tweet sent out not long after NFL Commissioner #Roger Goodell made the announcement that the league would allow players to protest during the national anthem, Donald Trump wasted no time giving his thoughts. Goodell said now about half a dozen players are protesting. Sweep aside the high-minded platitudes.

"I can not predict that nor will I predict that", the Giants' other co-owner, Steve Tisch, said when asked whether he believes the number of players protesting will decrease in conjunction with the discussion of social issues. Yes, Goodell said, then listed several. And is said to be sensitive to the protests of the players that " speak of a reform of the judicial system, guarantees, penalties floor ".

Meanwhile, Goodell is looking to play King Solomon with the anthem protest issue - except he actually wants to go through with cutting the baby in half, acknowledging the legitimacy of the players' protests while telling the fans he's really on their side. In the old days, a reporter or editor might rant about the mayor, president or political parties at a social gathering and never be held accountable. Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick launched the protests in 2016, refusing to stand for the national anthem to draw attention to racial injustice and police brutality. Visionary you talked about falling revenue and and and angry fans in the light I have summing varies startling happened to me just the other day. I do believe they should use their voices to bring light to this problematic issue, but not to the detriment of others.

Trump's position unified more National Football League players to protest racial injustice before or during the anthem.

However, Goodell's response didn't do much to alleviate the NFL's troubles. "What we're trying to do is stay out of politics". In his own twisted way, Trump is suggesting that the African-American football players who have worked countless hours and dedicated their lives to becoming the greatest in and on their field should somehow feel "lucky", as if they were handed their successes on a silver platter. Instead, they tried to reinforce the notion that the owners and the players respect the flag and the military but that the few players who continue to protest during the anthem have a right to express themselves. "In the best American tradition, we are coming together to find common ground and commit to the hard work required for positive change", Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said.
