22 October, 2017, 00:59 | Author: Brian Mcdaniel
On Tuesday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell expressed his belief that everyone "should" stand for the national anthem but noted that the league would not institute a rule to force players to do so.
In a tweet on Wednesday, the USA president upped the ante in his fight with the NFL players kneeling down during the national anthem to decry police brutality against minorities, particularly African Americans in the United States. "But they also understand how it's being interpreted". Trump has said the protests are unpatriotic and disrespectful of military veterans.
Trump responded to Goodell's approach with impatience.
".@NFL: Too much talk, not enough action".

The protests started last season with San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who both sat and took a knee during the anthem, saying he was protesting police brutality of African-Americans, and this season the displays have spread, including to other causes, while Kaepernick, now a free agent, remains unsigned by an National Football League team.
Players across the league doubled down by kneeling, locking arms, and sometimes sitting for the anthem after the president called on owners to fire players who did so. The meeting between owners and players ended with no agreement on the thorny issue of protests during "The Star-Spangled Banner", which has bitterly divided the sport and fans of the game. Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick launched the protests in 2016, refusing to stand for the national anthem to draw attention to racial injustice and police brutality. Polls have found that a majority of Americans disapprove of the anthem protests but are unhappy with the way Trump has handled the issue. Instead, he said, the team owners generally agreed it was important to listen to players' concerns.
Should Trump walk away from the deal, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Wednesday that Iran would "shred" it. Reinstating old nuclear sanctions on Iran for non-nuclear reasons, however, is a violation of the agreement.
