Warriors coach rips NFL's 'idiotic' national anthem policy, calls it 'fake patriotism'

All NFL players, however, who are on the field are required to stand.

On the new national anthem policy: "I think it's kind of somewhat been blown out of proportion a little bit".

"You can't inundate us with tens of millions of dollars in commercial ads and then strip the people that generate your money and your profits of their first amendment rights", Foy said.

The new rule: Players must stand for the anthem if they are on the sideline, but have the option of staying in the locker room.

The Game Operations Manual will be revised to remove the requirement that all players be on the field for the Anthem.

Each club may develop its own work rules, consistent with the above principles, regarding its personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.

"It's disgusting", Marshall said of Trump's remarks, via USA Today. This ruling is in response to controversy last season in which some players chose to kneel instead of stand to protest cases of systemic oppression.

Turkey's lira slides to new record low
Over the past month alone the lira has lost 18 percent of its value compared to the dollar. The lira fell as low as 4.8450 against the dollar early on Wednesday before recovering.

"This is a contradictory policy", Rebecca Gerber, Care2's senior director of engagement, said in a statement. But for him to say that anybody who doesn't follow his viewpoints or his constituents' viewpoints should be kicked out of the country.

Now that the NFL is drawing the line against players kneeling during the national anthem, athletes protesting police brutality and racial inequality may need to find a new playbook. I was dreaming of an America where citizens respect free speech and dissent, even when they disagree with it. "But our president has chose to make it about that, and the National Football League followed suit, pandered to their fanbase, created this hysteria". "Right or wrong, whether I agree with it or not, I think in this country everyone has the right to protest". People in high places are trying to divide us, divide loyalties, make this about the flag, as if the flag is something other than what it really is. It would be easy to stop players from peacefully protesting. "I respect the man because he's a human being, first and foremost".

"He's an idiot. Plain and simple", Baldwin said. "What I think they did was they sat down and tried to figure out, 'What can we get away with as quickly as possible?'"

"I never want to put restrictions on the speech of our players", Johnson told Newsday. "I think there will be some backlash from their decision".

"Over the past year, the president of the United States has been railing against NFL players who kneel during the national anthem to protest causes dear to them". The NFL Players Association said it was not consulted before the change was enacted.

"And most particularly, (we considered) the members of our military and veterans communities who we've heard a lot from over the previous year about what it means to respect the flag and the national anthem".
