The NFLannounced on Wednesday a shift in its policy regarding the national anthem after the season prior was, in many ways, defined by kneeling protests from players looking to raise awareness of the oppression of people of color in the United States. "I am interested to talk to some other teammates to see how they feel about it, but I'm comfortable saying that I support Colin Kaepernick and I agree with the reasons behind his protest". Any violations of the new rules would result in fines against teams. "I think that's a particularly bad idea..."
Two Seattle players, Doug Baldwin and K.J. Wright, were among manyaround the league to question the new policy. "We want them to stand - that's all personnel - and make sure they treat the moment in a respectful fashion".
"It's important that we discuss today's developments with our players, and I'm looking forward to speaking with them as soon as possible".
"I seriously struggled with this", he said of the anthem modifications approved by the owners.
"We are dedicated to continuing our collaboration with players to advance the goals of justice and fairness in all corners of our society", Goodell said in his statement.
