After Donald Trump tweeted “It is about time that Roger Goodell of the NFL is finally demanding that all players STAND for our great National Anthem-RESPECT OUR COUNTRY.” the NFL actually says that Donald is wrong and he misunderstood Roger Goodell’s message. Roger Goodell sent a letter to NFL players say that he “believe that everyone should stand” for the anthem but never said they had to or set a rule. The NFL has since released another statement to make the statement clear.
TMZ reports the NFL’s statements below,
“Commentary this morning about the Commissioner’s position on the Anthem is not accurate,” the league said, specifically referencing Trump.
“As we said yesterday, there will be a discussion of these issues at the owners meeting next week. The NFL is doing the hard work of trying to move from protests to progress, working to bring people together.”
Well that doesn’t sound like Donald & the NFL are on the same page..
