Steve Kerr Criticizes NFL for New Anthem Policy

Steve Kerr Criticizes NFL for New Anthem Policy

Any violations of the new rules would result in fines against teams. Just hours after the National Football League announcement, the sports world was jolted by the release of a video showing police officers in Milwaukee tasering NBA player Sterling Brown, who plays for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Hoping to quell the furor started by quarterback Colin Kaepernick two years ago, the National Football League announced Wednesday that players can stay in the locker room during "The Star-Spangled Banner" but must stand if they venture onto the field.

Baldwin in particular expressed fierce opposition during a press conference following the Seattle Seahawks OTAs at the VMAC, calling President Donald Trump "an idiot" after Trump implied that players who don't stand during the national anthem shouldn't be allowed to live in the U.S.

Players will be permitted to stay in the locker room during the national anthem, but a player on the field will leave the team susceptible to a fine if he doesn't stand at attention.

The NFL Players Association's statement ripped Roger Goodell and New York Giants owner John Mara.

"They're basically trying to use the anthem as fake patriotism, nationalism, scaring people", Kerr said. "But still I think it's good". "I'm proud to be in a league that understands that patriotism in America is about free speech and about peaceful protesting".

Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall called comments made by President Trump "disgusting" after Trump suggested players who didn't stand for the national anthem "shouldn't be in the country".

As a newspaper sustained by the First Amendment, we take a back seat to no one in the cause of free speech.

In a new tweet, McCain said that she never goes "on tv and do or say anything because it's easy - I say it because it's what I believe in". "We want people to stand - that's all personnel - and make sure they treat this moment in a respectful fashion".

A club will be fined by the League if its personnel are on the field and do not stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem. Though the statement does not include what that discipline will be, Sports Illustrated reports that the league is considering a 15-yard penalty be charged against the team whose players kneel - clearly a half-baked idea because players on both teams kneeling would cancel out the penalty.

"NFL players need to take a lesson from King James, who obviously understands that fans don't have a problem with athletes speaking up; they just have a problem with them kneeling down". "It's really ironic, actually".
