Nfl-stand-anthemAs the NFL continues to be embroiled in controversy over players protesting during the national anthem, team owners are reportedly considering making a change. According to Dow Jones (via CNBC), NFL owners are considering the addition of a new rule that would require players stand for the national anthem.

While the NFL would be within its rights to require players to stand, surely some people (not to mention players) would not like the league trying to silence something many would consider a civil liberty in an open forum, even if technically the NFL is a private company.
