NEW YORK – According to Sports Illustrated, the national anthem wills not air with the exclusion of the Miami Dolphins versus the New Orleans Saints in London prior to NFL football matches.  

Many NFL players have been seen standing or kneeling arm and arm during the national anthem.     Some groups opted to stay inside the locker room.

SI said, “Last week, the network introduced the national anthem from matches as over 250 gamers took a knee throughout the anthem to protest President Trump calling for NFL players to be fired for what he says as disrespect to the flag.”

But throughout the anthem as a series of protest against what they consider to be racism and police brutality, some NFL players took a knee before the comments of Trump.  

“As we have in past broadcasts of NFL games out of London, FOX will demonstrate that the National Anthem in addition to God Save the Queen dwell. As is standard procedure, regionalized coverage of NFL games airing on FOX this Sunday will not demonstrate the National Anthem dwell; nonetheless, our cameras are always rolling and we’ll document the answer of coaches and players around the field.”
