In before the ‘stick to football’ comments.
Now with that out of the way…
The NFLPA announced yesterday that they have filed a non-injury grievance on behalf of its members against the NFL in response to the league’s new anthem policy that the owners passed a couple of months ago in late May.
From a statement issued through their website yesterday, in part:
“Our union filed its non-injury grievance today on behalf of all players challenging the NFL’s recently imposed anthem policy. The union’s claim is that this new policy, imposed by the NFL’s governing body without consultation with the NFLPA, is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement and infringes on player rights”.
