That’s certainly the case for three of the teams left, and none of them have ever been Super Bowl champions. The Eagles have not been to the Super Bowl since Donovan McNabb and Andy Reid led them there in 2004 (they also won the NFC title in 1980).
Goodell declined to address Wednesday what the league would do Authentic Max Scherzer Jersey if a team disciplines a player for refusing to stand for the anthem. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones previously has said that his team would bench any player who protests during the anthem and thereby, in Jones’s view, shows disrespect to the American flag.
I think our clubs all see this the same way: that we want our players to stand, Goodell said. We’re going to continue to encourage them to stand. We’re going to continue to work on these issues in the community. 锟斤拷 I can’t deal with hypotheticals right now. We’ll deal with those issues as they come up.
We believe everyone should stand for the national anthem, Goodell said at the conclusion of the October owners’ meeting. That’s an important part of our policy. It’s also an important part of our game that we all take great pride in. And it’s also important for us to honor our flag and our country, and we think our fans expect us to do that.
Goodell and owners said then that they were focused on discussions with the players about league support of players’ community activism. They said they hoped that such support would convince players to voluntarily stand for the anthem, although they cautioned there was no formal or implied agreement that NFL support of players’ activism would lead to all players standing.
This is not a trade-off, Jed York, the chief executive officer of the San Francisco 49ers, said at the October meeting. From what I’ve read, there are some players that have said that they’re still not considering standing yet. And that never came up in the meeting. 锟斤拷 This has been, ‘How do we take protest to progress?’ How do we make sure that we move these issues forward that matter to the players and I think that matter to the owners?
