NFL's new anthem kneeling policy: “Too little, too late”

Amanda HeadRebel Contributor


After losing fans and therefore millions in revenue, the NFL finally issued a new policy regarding the "take a knee" anthem protests.

Rather than disrespect the anthem (and, by extension, military and law enforcement) football players now have the option of simply staying in the locker room until this traditional opening ceremony is over.

But like most compromises, this one has satisfied few people, and besides, I think the damage the NFL has done to its prestige and bottom line is irreversible.

Fair comment Judy White… But most of these “kneeling brothers” wouldn’t know, or search out, a neighbourhood volunteer position except for a photo-op… Now Prove Me Wrong!…

Don’t like their country—go play some football in the Congo, and help all your brethren with your,—I don’t like that countries money. (i’m on Trumps side on this one), so buzz off you black freaks.

Why doesn’t someone in the Media say," TRUMP WAS CORRECT AS USUAL"

I completely agree with all comments in this video. Most of these black players make more money in 1 year than most of us will see in our whole life – and they have a great job that most kids only dream of. Rather than disrespecting the anthem of the country that has enabled them such a privileged life, they should try to set a good example for kids to follow in their footsteps. Go volunteer to play ball with some underprivileged kids, for example…….

I agree, too little, too late! The damage has already been done.
