Fines? Maybe. Suspend? That just hurts the team, owner included. But is it allowable?

Yeah the guys writing the checks tell the guys cashing the checks how to act while at work, just like every other job.

If you have permission, it's not a protest.

Cool. Can't wait to see the entire team do it and shove it up the owners ass.

 

And this will accomplish what?

Is it really necessary to play the National Anthem before a game?  They usually don't play it before a concert.  Maybe it's time they put this tradition to bed.

It dates back to the fevered patriotism of the WWI era

"google search on "national anthem sporting event history" found this site, (http://www.poppolitics.com/articles/2003-02-28-flagprotest.shtml) which had this info:It is generally accepted that its first appearance during a sporting event was the 1918 World Series. To demonstrate major league patriotism, baseball teams had the players march in formation during pre-game military drills while carrying bats on their shoulders. During the seventh-inning stretch of game one, when the band spontaneously began to play the "Star Spangled Banner," the Cubs and Red Sox players stood at attention facing the centerfield flag pole. The crowd sang along and applauded when the singing ended. "

 

I don't think 100 yr old tradition could be "sun-setted" by the NFL at the current time in the current climate without huge controversy

"Proper anthem conduct" huh?  Sounds similar to "general hygiene and lady body maintenance"

Of course if the majority of a nfl team refuses to play, the owner will fold real quick.  If you did this at you job, you’re completely replaceable.

 

for the millionth time, your job isn’t the same as a pro athlete’s.

They played the national anthems for both teams during the World Cup. It’s not just a US thing.

Just stop playing it.  Maybe the first game of the year to honor our military and the 9/11 heroes.  Let Trump throw his hissy fit and move on.  It will eventually fade away from our consciousness.  I don't see any other way around this.

Owners have used replacement players before, I’m not sure why they can’t do it again.

Money is the extremely obvious answer. Wake me up when some league this century goes that route.
