Twitter rips anthem idea NFL owners are reportedly considering

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

NFL owners are meeting this week in Atlanta for their annual Spring Meeting, where they are discussing many varied topics. They’ve already unanimously cleared David Tepper to become the next owner of the Carolina Panthers, and among other things they are also discussing what to do regarding the national anthem.

One of the proposals on the table, shared by Albert Breer of The MMQB, has stirred up quite a hornet’s nest on social media.

The first portion of that idea makes some sense. After all, it wasn’t until very recently that teams actually did come out onto the field for the anthem to begin with. The second aspect of that idea, however, is controversial, to say the least.

NFL writers across the nation did not seem to think this would be a great idea.
