The NFL has said that players may protest during the anthem. Some teams have, as a practical matter, applied a different approach, discouraging and/or flat-out stating that players will not kneel. Soon, it could be for the teams to formally craft their own policies regarding whether players will be required to stand during the anthem.
So it’s hardly a compromise to give the teams the power to tell players not to kneel. It could end up instead being a powderkeg, at a time when the issue has largely subsided, but for the pending Kaepernick and Eric Reid collusion grievances.

Via Deone Bucannon Authentic Jersey the New York Post, the lawyer currently representing Luisa Esposito has asked Commissioner Roger Goodell to encourage Lisa Friel, the league’s special counsel for investigations to take action in a case that fell under her jurisdiction when the situation arose in 2005.
Esposito contends that attorney Allen Isaac groped her and demanded sexual favors from her in connection with representation stemming from an automobile accident. Esposito managed to capture one of her meetings with Isaac on tape, and it was enough to get him kicked out of the Wall Street law firm he founded. However, Isaac never was prosecuted.
So why Friel? At the time, she led the Manhattan District Attorney’s Sex-Crimes Unit, and she didn’t prosecute Isaac. So Esposito’s new lawyer, Peter Gleason, wants Goodell to tell Friel to tell the DA to move on the case.
Just like access to agents, limiting access of coaches to players empowers the third parties that the NCAA seeks to limit. The answer to influence isn’t to take coaches away from the players but to allow more access of coaches to players.
When NCAA coaches are not present, others will fill that void. The commission suggested greater access of NCAA coaches to their own players during the summer so third parties will not be empowered. It also recommended greater player access to agents so bad agents will not be empowered. But limiting youth players’ access to coaches will somehow limit the influence of third parties? That makes no sense.
