Dolphins owner Stephen Ross attempts to clarify national anthem policy
Ross claimed the clause was included in a broader discipline policy the team was required to submit to the NFL before players report to training camp next week. The Associated Press on Thursday acquired a copy of the document and reported the inclusion of potential discipline for violations of the league’s national anthem policy.In May, NFL owners passed a new policy that would require players to stand on the sideline during the playing
of the national anthem. If players did not want to stand, they would have to remain in the locker room. Teams could be fined if players demonstrated while on the sideline.Owners passed this policy without consultation from the NFL Players Association, and the union recently filed a grievance against the league in relation to the policy.More: New York Giants players will not be punished for kneeling during national anthemMore: NFL, players call truce on anthem rules while discussions continueMore: NFL does right thing in tabling Dolphins, league's restrictions on protests during anthemThe Luke Rhodes Authentic Jersey
NFL and NFL Players Association announced Thursday night that no new rules would be created or enforced in the next several weeks while the two sides negotiate.“I’m pleased that the NFL and NFLPA are taking a pause to figure out a resolution to this issue,” Ross wrote. “I am passionate about social justice, and through the Miami Dolphins and the creation of (Ross Initiative in Sports for Equality), will continue to use the unifying power of sports to improve race relations and drive social progress.”At Lee Hightower White Elite Jersey
