The firestorm over NFL players disrespecting the national anthem is not over.
The NFL Players Association, a union that represents all NFL players, sued the NFL on Tuesday for their adoption of a new anthem policy. The NFLPA filed a grievance challenging new policy that forces all players to stand on the field during the anthem.
The unions claim is that this new policy, imposed by the NFLs governing body without consultation with the NFLPA, is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement and infringes on player rights, a press release from the union said.

You have a ‘right’ to play football, and nothing else.
You are paid entertainers.
Protest on your own time.
I swear to God, the NFL just dont know when to stop digging their own hole. F*** all of themI will never watch another game.
Can I sue my company because they infringe on my rights by not letting me work from home?
The only way the NFL could infringe on their rights is if they enforced rules and refused to allow the players to quit.
Only governments and kidnappers can infringe your rights.
When at a game, they are technically at work. While at work they should be working.... not protesting. With the recent firings of employees for outside of work events, I imagine this court case is DOA.
Still not watching this garbage anymore though.
The NFL brought this on themselves. I hope both sides tear each other to pieces as attendance figures and revenues free fall.
They don’t know when to call it quits.
It’s gonna be a bad year for the NFL............................
Funny thing, here in the off season, I have heard nothing about these players using their down time to promote their cause. Seems this has been all BS. Shocked I know!
Idiots, just play or quit.
These guys need to go on strike, cancel the season.
Im sure that being required to put yourself in a three point stand before hiking the ball infringes on their rights. And being penalized for crossing the scrimmage line before the hike or having to not move before the ball is hiked infringes on their rights too.
What a bunch of spoiled bratty clowns. Ill never watch another minute of the NFL.
Well this is juicy!
NFL...NFL... (Fingers drumming) NFL...I used to know that one... NFL...refresh my memory?
Why should there be a union in the NFL?
Fire the SOBs.
They didn’t sue. They filed a grievance and it will go to arbitration.
Boycotting the NFL Forever.
There off beating up girl friends and committing other crimes....NFL is done..
Hollywood is next..
They have every right to sue their employer for making rules they don’t agree with.
They have every right to destroy their careers, franchise team and the league.
Me, I’m already gone.
NFLPA director, DeMaurice Smith, is doing his best to ruin the NFL
