NFL had a meeting on Tuesday to consider a new rule if a player or the team kneels during the national anthem, there would be a 15 yard punishment against the team. The home team would decide whether both sides should be on the field during the Star Spangled Banner and if so a 15-yard penalty could be handed out if anyone kneels. The proposal would represent a different response from the NFL after a wave of national anthem protest which were started by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick. After the kneeling triggered fierce debates across the country and criticism from President Trump, the league moved to pay nearly $100 million to social justice causes supported by some players. During the 2016-2017 NFL season, Kaepernick started kneeling during the anthem as part of a protest against police brutality.
