The petition is called the "Official Stand for the National Anthem Petition". The meeting between owners and players ended with no agreement on the thorny issue of protests during "The Star-Spangled Banner", which has bitterly divided the sport and fans of the game.
This week, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell held a series of press conferences to attempt to stop the bleeding from the outcry over mass national anthem protests which have gripped the NFL. However, the league said it will not mandate that players stand for the anthem. " wrote Mr. Trump in a tweet early in the morning".
The petition came days after NFL team owners, executives and players met in NY, where they decided that the league would not implement a rule forcing players to stand for "The Star-Spangled Banner". Total lack of respect to our great country!
It is precisely the great honor we accord the national anthem - and the American flag it celebrates - that gives such a contrary action as kneeling during the anthem its power as a signal of distress.

Trump set off a wave of protest across the National Football League after he called for players who kneel to be fired, saying owners should "get that son of a b***h off the field" during a September rally. "We did not ask for that", Goodell said.
The president began Wednesday tweeting that players' kneeling to protest racial injustice and police violence during the national anthem is disrespectful to the United States.
"I think our clubs all see this the same way - we want our players to stand, we're going to encourage them to stand and we're going to continue to work on these issues in the community", Goodell said Wednesday. "We spent today talking about the issues that players have been trying to bring attention to - issues to make our communities better. that was the entire focus of today".
Donald Trump is continuing his attack on players who protest during the national anthem.
