ㅤ"Clubs with players who violate the policy will be fined. The NFL commissioner will also ‘impose appropriate discipline’ on anyone who runs afoul of the rule, approved at the league’s annual spring meeting in Atlanta.
ㅤ’We think we’ve come up with a balanced process here and a procedure and policy that will allow those players who think they can’t stand for the anthem to stay in the locker room,’ said Mr. Goodell. ‘There’s no penalty for that, but we are going to encourage all of them to be on the field.

ㅤIn addition, teams may develop their own sets of rules for personnel ‘who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem,’ said the NFL statement.’"ㅤ
