Last Wednesday, the NFL revealed another policy for the national anthem without counseling the NFL Players’ Association.
The policy fines players who don’t stand on the field while the national athem is being played, however gives them an alternative of staying in the locker room amid the pre-kickoff service.
The new policy started reaction from a few players and noticeable NFL hall of famers and veterans, including the Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins and Golden State Warriors head mentor Steve Kerr.

Not every person is 100% against the new policy.
TMZ Sports caught up with NFL Legend Eric Dickerson, who said the new policy is “Something worth being thankful for.”
