Change NFL players contracts to require them to stand for the National Anthem.

This petition had 40 supporters


NFL players are unionized employees and have contracts. I would propose that team owners, teams and the NFL players association negotiate and NFL league commissioner work out language and accept a rule that makes it mandatory to stand for the national anthem when played immediately before a football game when they are working per  their contract. If they do not they shall be ejected from the game and be suspended for 1 additional game for violating their contracts. They are Americans and have the right to free speech like everyone else but they can do it on their own time not while participating in a work setting per their contract.
