Cartoon Shows EXACTLY How Oppressed Most NFL Players REALLY Are

Written by  TFPP Writer

Brian Thomas reports that according to Dow Jones, a league spokesman says that NFL owners are considering a policy change making standing for the National Anthem mandatory.

Players protesting during the National Anthem started back when 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began sitting out the anthem in protest of police brutality against black Americans.

Among declining ratings and pressure from fans, it appears the NFL is finally considering making a change. Players have knelt or sat for the National Anthem over the past year, but in recent weeks the protests have drastically increased, following President Trump’s comments that the NFL should consider firing players who refuse to stand.

President Trump seemed to threaten pulling tax breaks from the NFL over the controversy. “Why is the NFL getting massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country?” Trump Tweeted on Tuesday. “Change tax law!”

The change will be discussed at a meeting of team owners next week.

On Sunday, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he would bench any player who disrespects the flag.
