Sam, not to split hairs, but does the new rule state that players can remain in the locker rooms during the national anthem? I thought the fines were for those who kneeled during the anthem. I don’t know. I haven’t been watching the news that much lately.

I hope that team owners leave that option to the players. If they do, it’ll be interesting to see who stays in and who goes out. Because you know after the buzz dies down, it’ll be a return to the days of old when everybody used to hang out in the lockers during the national anthem.

Regarding playing players too long, the brutality of it all … kinda reminds me of the gladiator days of old. Seems like the NFL is capitalism on massive doses of human growth hormone.

Good work, sir.
