This has become so controversial that politics is ruining our game. There is only a small handful of players protesting police brutality during the national anthem, but the media wants to keep it front and center by making it a big deal. I'd like to find some common ground in support of our police department (who risks their lives on a daily basis for our safety), police brutality (there is evidence of "bad cops" targeting blacks and other minorities), and respecting those who fought for our freedom (why protest during the national anthem when there are other venues ... heck, meet in the middle of the field after a game as Christians do in prayer). The NFL has done a terrible job of over-penalizing those smoking marijuana, under-penalizing those with domestic abuse problems, and buggering up this National Anthem issue.

The Dolphins on Thursday served as the NFL’s unwitting stress test for the league’s controversial new national anthem policy.

After just five hours, the league acknowledged that test had failed, suspending the rule until the NFL and the players’ union can come to terms on a new one.

Late Thursday, the league and the NFLPA released a joint statement announcing that the two sides have “come to a standstill agreement” on both the NFL’s policy compelling players to stand during the anthem, and the union’s subsequent grievance. Players argue they were not included in the discussions on the policy, which stipulates that teams with players that demonstrate during the anthem will be fined.

Teams were also given the latitude to punish players for protesting, but not compelled to do so. The Associated Press reported Thursday that the Dolphins might fine or even suspend those that do, but the team later clarified that no decision on that matter has been made.

Still, the damage had been done, and the blowback was immediate. Many criticized the team for what they perceived as a heavy-handed policy — even though in truth the Dolphins were only codifying what the league had mandated.

For now, all team and league discipline will be on pause — which is probably wise, seeing as this issue remains unresolved two weeks shy of the start of the preseason.

What will we do now..Our second best receiver was traded and our best receiver is now going to be suspended for kneeling during the anthem.

This team is going nowhere without the Tannehill to Stills combo!

Why do you turn every thread into a Tannehill thread?

I thought I heard somewhere that a long time ago, teams were never on the field for the National Anthem. Why not just go back to that?

I heard on Sirius that that is a real option being considered. They did it that way up until 10 years ago I think.

False accusation about me and line blaming. Thanks for the complement i like buttercups.

Crying, crying, there is no crying in Phins-posting.
