President Donald Trump walks on the South Lawn as he arrives at the White House in Washington, Wednesday, May 23, 2018, returning from a roundtable discussion on illegal immigration and gang violence. "Of course. But I understand if they felt the need to protest", said Christopher Johnson, chairman of the New York Jets and brother of Trump administration official Woody Johnson.

"I don't think people should be staying in the locker rooms, but still I think it's good", he said.

"I don't think people should be staying in the locker rooms, but still I think it's good". You shouldn't be there. The player said at the time, in the wake of multiple police shootings of unarmed black men: "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color".

Goodell will impose "appropriate discipline" for those on the field who do not stand for the national anthem.

Personnel who're not standing on the field will be fined.

Bears coach Matt Nagy said after practice Wednesday that the team will discuss the issue as a group at some point in the future.

Two ex-49ers players, Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid, are suing the National Football League for collusion because they remain unsigned after protesting against social injustice and police brutality.

But the policy came under fire from some critics who say it infringes on players' First Amendment rights.

In the years since, the league's owners have grown magnificently rich, building their teams into billion-dollar kingdoms, while also becoming fearful of anything that threatens their ability to make billions more on the backs of fans. "This was not me", Trump simpered. These owners don't love American more than the players demonstrating and taking real action to improve it. I think it's disgraceful. "They'll find a way to get you up out of there".

Trump said in the interview broadcast Thursday that he hadn't seen the new policy prior to his answer but "NFL owners did the right thing with that if that's what they've done". Ultimately, they caved. They gave Trump what he wanted, and this week they finally got those players off the field.

"We've been supportive of those in the past who have made a decision to protest", Mara told Sirius XM, "but I think we've gotten to a point now where it's become such a divisive issue that I think it's important that we come out of here with a policy that everybody can respect and adhere to". "This was not me". "I brought it out".
