NFL owners, during a meeting Tuesday, reportedly considered a new punishment for players who choose to kneel during the national anthem: a 15-yard penalty against the team.
Under the proposal, the home team would decide whether both sides should be on the field during the Star Spangled Banner — and if so, 15-yard penalties would be handed out if anyone kneels, Sports Illustrated reported.
The report did not indicate who made the proposal, and it was unclear how much support or opposition it received. The NFL did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
FINALLY, we are hearing of a real solution to this unpatriotic behavior. This should have been discussed months ago. I guess since ratings are slipping they realized it needed to be done. But It might be too little too late.
