Packers Fan Page Takes Subtle Shot At National Anthem Protesters
A Green Bay Packers fan page for star HaHa Clinton-Dix appeared to take a subtle shot at national anthem protesters after his Sunday game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The page wrote the following:
The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the NFL League Rulebook. It states:
“The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.
“During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition…
…It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
I would love to be in the Packers locker room this morning after multiple Packers players took a knee during the anthem.
Editors note: a previous version of this story identified the FB page as Clinton-Dix’s official page. It is not, despite having the world official in the handle.
