'Everyone should stand for national anthem' - NFL commissioner

The Lions stand to attention at the playing of the national anthem before Sunday's game against the Panthers in Detroit

It was originally interpreted as Goodell wanting players to stand for the anthem.

Members of the San Francisco 49ers kneel during the playing of the national anthem before an NFL football game against the Indianapolis Colts, Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017, in Indianapolis.

The NFL thinks that all of its football players should stand - rather than sitting, kneeling, or staying in the locker room - for the national anthem, and they will soon discuss whether or not to force players to do so, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said October 10.

Before making those comments, Smith called the National Football League out for their weak response to Trump and said they need to address him directly because he successfully hijacked the issue from its players.

Trump made a reference Wednesday on Twitter to Goodell's meetings next week with NFL owners, where they will consider changes to a game manual that says players "should" stand during the national anthem.

Roger Goodell, has sent a statement to all the league's teams regarding the ongoing campaign of national anthem protests.

It appears under the league's plan, per the memo, players would be offered an alternate platform for voicing their opinions on social issues in return for their standing during the anthem.

"We believe that everyone should stand" is a long way from "demanding" that players stand. "What we want to do is get back to focusing on the actions that we want to take to really improve our communities and support our players to get things done".

Kaepernick started the kneeling movement previous year when he played for the San Francisco 49ers, refusing to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner" to protest the treatment of black people by police.

First, Trump issued a "big salute" to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones for saying he'd bench anybody who did not stand, before questioning the NFL's special tax status, saying this should be revoked if players continued "disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country".

The movement started by Kaepernick last season had mostly subsided when Trump told a rally in Alabama last month that owners should get rid of players who kneel during the anthem. They need, as a collective body meaning the commissioner in consent with the owners, to address Donald Trump, the President of the United States, and some of his attacks on him. It's a certainty that this story will continue to shadow the National Football League, and it's a near-certainty that Trump will offer commentary the entire way.
