The all-women Legends Football League, previously known as the Lingerie Football League, issued a statement regarding the recent protests on Tuesday which said that its players will never take a knee for the national anthem.

“The LFL recognizes everyone’s First Amendment right to protest, but our nation’s flag and anthem are far too sacred,” the league said. “Too many fellow Americans have made the ultimate sacrifice, so that our flag and anthem continue in all its majesty.”

“It symbolizes all the blood, sweat, and tears that have been shed so that we as Americans can raise our flag across our nation,” the organization said in a video posted to the LFL’s official Twitter account. “The LFL salutes all those who make this the greatest country in the world and we stand in salute of our flag.”

The NFL better get its players in line because the LFL just became the most patriotic league in the game.
