Over the past few weeks, hundreds of NFL players have taken a knee during the national anthem to protest against Donald Trump and racial inequality. This has resulted in NFL ratings plummeting, as fans have decided to turn off their televisions rather than watch our flag be disrespected.
Now, NFL owners have gone into panic mode over this, and they’re finally taking action.
Freedom Daily reported that NFL owners just held an emergency meeting in which they considered a rule change that will force all players to stand while the national anthem plays. The new policy could be finalized as soon as next week.
The NFL owners apparently held the meeting in response to what President Trump tweeted several days ago, announcing that he wants to cut NFL tax breaks, a threat that NFL owners are apparently taking extremely seriously.
“Why is the NFL getting massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country? Change tax law!” Trump wrote last week.

This only made the millionaire NFL athletes even angrier, as they spoke out more against Trump. However, the NFL owners finally seem to have seen reason and realized that the future of their league is in jeopardy, and they have to do something to save it.
