After essentially ignoring the controversy surrounding players disrespecting the American flag by kneeling during the National Anthem before games the corporate heads of the NFL are finally getting the message. Their fan base is angry and reacting by refusing to buy tickets for games, boycotting NFL games on television, and boycotting NFL products and sponsors.
Finally, the NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has sent a letter to all of the teams in the league telling them that everyone should stand for the anthem before a game. He did not specify what might happen if teams and their members fail to comply, but the regulations of the league already provide for fines and other sanctions.
