NFL Still Negotiating With Kneelers


The goalpost continues to move on a national anthem policy for the NFL.

After approving a new national anthem policy in May, the league required players and league personnel on the sideline to stand or remain in the locker room. The NFL players union then filed a non-injury grievance against the NFL’s new national anthem policy, saying the NFL’s policy “infringes on player rights.”

A national anthem rule is yet to be enforced this NFL pre-season, as a standstill agreement between the two parties has been enacted as negotiations continue.

With the season opener coming on Sept. 6th, there’s still no word on a resolution. NFL Players Association representatives met Monday with NFL representatives to discuss the national anthem policy but no final decision was reached.

Monday evening, the NFLPA released this statement on Twitter:
