Roger Goodell Sent A Message To Teams Saying Everyone Should Stand For The National Anthem

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has finally weighed in on the National Anthem protests.  A little more than a year after they started with Colin Kaepernick.  The Commissioner sent a letter out to all of the teams.

In the letter Goodell stated he believes everyone should stand for the National Anthem, "Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem.  It is an important moment in our game.  We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us.  We also care deeply about our players and respect their opinions and concerns about critical social issues.  The controversy over the Anthem is a barrier to having honest conversations and making real progress on the underlying issues.  We need to move past this controversy, and we want to do that together with our players."

That's probably not going to go over well.  Expect some fireworks this weekend.  See the entire letter the Clown sent out below.
