Smith: Policy paints Kaepernick as villain

  • Columnist Shaun King revealed the news that NFL players are considering missing matches

"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.

DeMaurice Smith, executive director of the National Football League Players Association, tweeted his distaste towards the ruling: "History has taught us that both patriotism and protest are like water; if the force is strong enough it can not be suppressed".

How non-compliancy would be handled is at the discretion of each team.

Ross also said Patriots owner Robert Kraft had spoken about the issue with Trump and National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell was influenced by the president's statement, the Journal reports.

The NFL plans to enforce this rule by fining the teams whose players and personnel choose to kneel or sit on the field. The owner said he became against kneeling when he felt that the message from the players was being interpreted as anti-military.

Those deposed were required to turn over phone and email records related to Kaepernick, who has not played since the 2016 season.




Together, the two have filed collusion grievance against the National Football League since neither player has been signed by a team since the end of the 2017 season. As of the present, differing opinions remain - some have supported the new policy, while others have opposed it. York also commended the NFL's decision to allow teams to handle the issue internally.

"Let's [not] give him that much credit", Jones testified. But although the employers in the context of this law would have referred to the congressmen, Geragos argues that the legislative intent of the law remains irrelevant because Justice Scalia said that the "last thing you do when interpreting a statute is you consider the legislative intent".

The National Football League is now the first USA major professional league with a national anthem policy.

Speaking following Carolina's first practice since the policy was announced last week at the NFL owners meetings, Smith went on to say he was "disappointed but not surprised because, at the end of the day, the league is all about money, it's a business". "The vote by NFL club CEOs today contradicts the statements made to our player leadership by Commissioner Roger Goodell and the Chairman of the NFL's Management Council John Mara about the principles, values and patriotism of our League", the association stated.

Many fans chose to boycott football, while others strongly support kneeling for the use of protesting racial inequality.
