N.F.L. Teams Will Be Fined if Players Kneel During National Anthem


Victor Mather, writing for The New York Times:

N.F.L. players will be allowed to stay in the locker room during the national anthem, but their teams will be fined by the league if they go onto the field and kneel, according to new rules adopted by owners on Wednesday in an effort to defuse an issue that escalated last season into a national debate catalyzed by President Trump.

This is so unbelievably stupid.
