Warriors Coach Steve Kerr Rips NFL's New National Anthem Policy: 'It's idiotic'

Posted May 27, 2018

The NFL announced on Wednesday that teams whose players do not "stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem" can now be fined.

"This is a contradictory policy", Rebecca Gerber, Care2's senior director of engagement, said in a statement.

There aren't many people on either side who agree with President Trump and VP Mike Pence that Roger Goodell has done a good job handling the NFL's national anthem protests, but former NBA commissioner David Stern is one of them. Trillo, a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump never misses a chance to stir controversy. It is what it is. But for him to say that anybody who doesn't follow his viewpoints or his constituents' viewpoints should be kicked out of the country. Freedom. Democracy. Equality. And it is because I love those ideals and the promise and dream of America that I criticize it. The way Baldwin sees it, it's not very patriotic for the president of a free country to push his viewpoints on his citizens. It's not what this country was founded on.

The initial national anthem protest movement was largely inspired by Colin Kaepernick, a San Francisco 49ers quarterback who kneeled during the national anthem in the 2016 season to protest social injustice and racism.

That said, it's true that modern-day National Basketball Association leadership has a much better relationship with its players than does the NFL.

Until the National Football League truly sits down to connect and find a better route to addressing this serious matter, there will continue to be underlying issues.

The NFL has finally realized what we've been saying all along: Don't take your issues out on the flag and national anthem!

"'Appropriate respect for flag and anthem' implies that guys were being disrespectful".

"I disagree with everyone on this table", she said. But my opinion is this: "I'm a Raven, and what we do inside these lines is what I'm anxious about".

The 52-year-old Kerr says that what the flag stands for is being perverted.

Many players were frustrated that the NFL Players' Association wasn't consulted about the new rules. When they do wrong things, I'm going to let them know they're doing wrong things. "I think I've made myself very clear". Otherwise, they must remain in the locker room until after it concludes.

"It is a divisive issue, and it can become a problem internally if not approached right", Armstead said. "If the team gets fined, that's just something I'll have to bear". "Maybe you shouldn't be in the country", Trump said. The power is seemingly not with those who use their bodies to earn $7.8 billion for their teams and the league, but rather with whites who profit most from their labor.
