NFL owners consider a controversial PENALTY for kneeling during the anthem!

Apparently the NFL owners are meeting today to discuss what to do about the players who want to protest during the national anthem before games, and one very controversial suggestion was leaked.


I love football and I thought the protests were very ill-considered, but this would just toss gas on the fire, and there’s NO WAY it’s gonna happen because the owners do NOT want a choose a side here. This would just alienate the left-wing side of the NFL’s fanbase.

That didn’t keep everyone from FREAKING OUT over it:

Imagine business owners determining that they don’t want their employees destroying their business through stupid protests.

Whine whine whine. It’s not gonna happen. But they SHOULD ban protests. Let the players protest on their own time, not the team’s time, when it’s forcing their fellow players to have to take a stand on politics. Go be a left-wing jackass when you’re not representing a city, a region, and millions of fans.
