Players continue to pan National Football League anthem policy

"This is a very winning, strong issue for me", the President told Jones, according to Andrew Beaton of the Wall Street Journal. Tell the world that it is impossible to win this one [against me].

"I think it could stir things up which is a problem", said new Carolina Panthers wide receiver Torrey Smith after day one of the second week of Panthers organized team activities.

"The majority of the American people agree with the President, love our country, love our flag and believe it should be respected", the White House official said. Under the new policy, players and league personnel on the sideline will be required to stand during the national anthem.

As the backlash continues over the NFL's new national anthem policy, a Minnesota Congressman says he has chose to boycott the league.

Jones later relayed that conversation to a meeting of the owners as they debated how to handle the protests, Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross testified.

"I think when you see a reactive policy - and when I say that I mean something that's done in response to what guys have done in the past - I always think that's a problem, especially when the message has been changed". Teams have the option of levying fines against individual players if they demonstrate. Players are allowed to remain in the locker room during the national anthem if they choose to do so. Reid a former first round draft pick for the 49ers, continued to kneeling after Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the team in 2017. "He's fired! He's fired!'" Trump said.

Allison is at least the second Congressman to weigh in on the National Football League anthem debate on Twitter, but Rep. Peter King of NY took the opposite stance when he ripped Jets chairman Christopher Johnson for volunteering to pay any fines his players may incur for protesting. Trump referred to kneeling players as a "son of a bitch".

Colin Kaepernick's lawyer, Mark Geragos, said an National Football League owner admitted, under oath, that he changed his mind about signing Kaepernick because of President Donald Trump.

"I ended up taking a stand because I witnessed the injustice in light of the Trayvon Martin case and the attack on voting rights", said Newsome, who is also an artist, filmmaker and grassroots organizer.

"Absolutely there's going to be a challenge to the policy", Geragos said.
