NFL Is Making Another Big Change About The National Anthem & The American Flag Claims Report
According to a recent report, the NFL is making another big change over how they will air the national anthem.
If you are one of the people that will tune in and watch the NFL this year you will only see protesters.
As the military or police honor guards come out to present the colors and protestors kneel there will no longer be anyone singing the national anthem.
According to a report from Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports, the NFL has decided not to have an on-field singer present the national anthem. They are even considering doing away with the honor guard presenting the flag.
The objective is to strictly limit the number of people on the sidelines who can potentially infect players and coaches with COVID-19, said sources. By the same token, the league will also crack down on the number of credentialed reporters and photographers with access to the playing field. Given the pandemic, the number of medical personnel on the sidelines will remain the same.
The ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ will still be played before each NFL game, said sources. But the anthem will not be performed live, such as the annual Super Bowl anthem performance most recently sung by Demi Lovato before Super Bowl LIV in February.
Instead, the league’s 32 teams may ask performers to sing the anthem off-site, then pipe it live inside their stadium, or have singers pre-record the anthem elsewhere, then play their rendition before kickoff.
The NFL has not commented on the report.
Oh, and there’s more…Here’s what we can expect from the NFL this year:
- social justice messages stenciled on the field
- social justice helmet decals on the football field
- and the song, “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing,” also known as the Black national anthem, sung prior to each Week 1 game
The NFL is scheduled to begin on September 10th although I’m not sure many Americans are going to care anymore.
