The Reason Why The NFL Caved To Trump

New details have emerged into the reason why the NFL decided to outlaw kneeling during the national anthem. And the biggest reason why seems to be President Trump. NFL owners are simply scared of him.

According to Fox News:

There's reportedly one big reason why the NFL took sweeping action Wednesday in adopting a new national anthem policy prior to the start of the 2018 season.

And he resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington.

“Our league is f-----g terrified of Trump. We're scared of him,” one unnamed source told Bleacher Report as reaction to the plan poured in.

Trump gave his thoughts on the decision:

"I don’t think people should be staying in the locker rooms, but still I think it’s good,” Trump told Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade in an exclusive interview. “You have to stand proudly for the national anthem. You shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there. Maybe they shouldn’t be in the country.”

This is just another win for Trump, and one NFL fans will probably thank him for. It remains to be seen if this will help with ratings for the upcoming season.
