The NFL Players’ Association (NFLPA) filed a grievance against the NFL on Tuesday over the league’s new policy requiring players to remain standing during the national anthem.

“The union’s claim is that this new policy, imposed by the NFL’s governing body without consultation with the NFLPA, is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement and infringes on player rights,” the NFLPA said in a statement.

The article goes on to state the following:

The union said the NFL had also agreed to holding “confidential discussions” with the NFLPA to find a solution instead of immediately moving to legal action.

NFL owners voted in May to approve a policy requiring players on the field to stand during the national anthem. Players who kneel or are otherwise disrespectful during the anthem are subject to a fine.

Players are allowed to stay in the locker room under the new policy, which was adopted after months of controversy surrounding the anthem protests.

    As much as these “employees” make they sure do act like a bunch of crybaby bitches, get the fuk over it and do what you get laid to do because no one gives a shit! I honestly don’t even care because I haven’t ever watched a game nor will I even now… If they don’t like the rules than quit and go find a real job…
