Jets Chairman Says He'll Pay Any Anthem-Related Fines For Jets Players

Houston Texans players during the national anthem before an NFL game in Seattle. NFL owners have approved a new policy to address the firestorm

The policy is an attempt to find a middle ground on a divisive issue that has shaken the country's most successful sport for almost two years, beginning when the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick knelt during the national anthem to protest police violence against minorities and economic inequality.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced Wednesday that all players and NFL team personnel "shall stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem" during the upcoming season.

So it would make sense that Trump Jr. took it as a victory when the National Football League announced the change Wednesday that requires players on the field to stand for the anthem and, more vaguely, "show respect" for the anthem and flag.

"I don't think people should be staying in locker rooms", Trump said in an interview with "Fox and Friends" this morning. Teams could be subjected to fines if players or staff don't stand during the anthem while on the field. "I would assume like anything else they are going to have their rules and their regulations, if you don't follow it you don't get to participate or you got fined", Joey Smith said.

"The problem we have is, we have a president who will use that as fodder to do his mission that I don't feel is in the best interests of America", said Robert Kraft, the New England Patriots owner and a longtime supporter of Trump's.

"I think that we've listened to a lot of different viewpoints including our fans over the past year, and I think this policy attempts to come out in a place where we respected everybody's point of view on this as best we could", Steelers Owner Art Rooney II said. "If the team gets fined, that's just something I'll have to bear". This rule was approved unanimously by the owners. "But still, I think it's good", Trump beamed in the interview, taped previous afternoon while Trump attended an anti-immigration event in NY. But if the players are on the field at that time, they have to stand.

The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) issued a statement following the policy announcement saying they were not consulted.

Goodell said he did not believe players who knelt were unpatriotic. "We want to make sure we have an all-encompassing sort of solution to how we look at this and not point the finger at one group or another". "But still I think it's good".
