NFL Refuses to Enforce its Own Rules

Sep 29, 2017

The National Football League continues to expose its hypocrisy when it comes to -enforcing the parts of its own rulebook relating to the National Anthem. The rules require that the anthem must be played before each NFL game and that both teams should have all of its players on the sideline, facing the flag and standing at attention. Players are also instructed to refrain from talking. Harsh penalties can be imposed for failure to follow these rules including fines, suspensions, and even loss of draft choices for the team. The NFL is refusing to enforce these rules.
