Kerr blasts National Football League anthem policy

The new policy requires players to stand during the national anthem if they are on the field.

Co-founder of the Women's March, Tamika Mallory said with the new policy, the league drew a line in the sand.

President Trump supported the new policy, telling Fox & Friends that players who choose to kneel or stay in the locker room maybe "shouldn't be in the country".

President Donald Trump, owners and players have weighed in for and against the new policy. It is what it is.

"I have always believed it is the responsibility of sports teams to be very proactive in our communities". It's not what this country was founded on.

Under the new NFL policy, NFL owners voted to allow NFL comissioner Roger Goodell to discipline any league personnel who does not stand and show respect for the flag and national anthem before games.

"Fortunately we have had great leadership, and we still do", Payton said.

There is still a clear divide that the league has struggled to bridge between itself and its players over the last couple of years.

Until the National Football League truly sits down to connect and find a better route to addressing this serious matter, there will continue to be underlying issues. Players like LeBron are CEOs in their own right and realize that their brand would be damaged considerably if they knelt for the national anthem.

"Our flag and our anthem deserve respect!"

"I think that's good", Trump said in the interview that taped Wednesday.

"I say disgusting because of our First Amendment rights, " he said.

"They are very clear in stating that our oppression is not for the American public's eyes", Mallory said. Another major contributing factor is that National Basketball Association players make so much more money and, unlike NFL players, have guaranteed contracts. Those who do not want to stand for the anthem can wait in the locker room until it's over. I don't like it but I understand it. As messages of support and solidarity flooded in for the Bucks, the response to the NFL's new policy was more complicated, denounced by many, including current players. "To come up with a rule, I didn't think - I think it was pretty much over with".

The protest debate is a divisive issues in the United States. I love those ideals. You always take the side of your country. "Players don't care about the team getting fined". "Patriotism is loving it enough to sacrifice for it, but also to call it when it's wrong".
