The NFL’s new anthem policy requires players to stand for the anthem or remain in the locker room. Violations will trigger fines of the teams http://www.officialwild.com/authentic-adidas-matt-dumba-jersey

According to the Associated Press, the team has a nine-page disciplinary document that includes a section labeled “Proper Anthem Conduct.” The document includes anthem protests within the laundry list of behavior that constitutes “conduct detrimental to the club.” By rule, detrimental conduct could result in a fine and/or a suspension.
None of this means that the team will actually suspend players for violating the anthem policy. However Art Monk Jersey
, the new anthem policy doesn’t foreclose a suspension, since it allows “[e]ach club [to] develop its own work rules . . . regarding its personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.”
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross at one point firmly supported the player right to protest. He then flipped, explaining that the political uproar obscured the reasons for the protests during the anthem.

Chris Ilitch is the first to admit that it hasn’t been business as usual for the Detroit Red Wings the past couple of seasons, but he’s confident the man to bring them back to the glory days is the man they currently have in charge.
The Red Wings’ governor announced Saturday the club had agreed to a new two-year contract with general manager Ken Holland.
”Around these parts http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/mark-sanchez-jersey
, we’re used to be being in the playoffs, we’re used to competing for Stanley Cups, and believe me, that’s where we all want to be http://www.officialpredators.com/authentic-adidas-ryan-hartman-jersey
,” Ilitch said. ”That’s a lot of fun. To get back there, it’s a process. We’ve done it before and we’re going to do it again.
”We think Ken is the right guy to lead that for our organization, so we’re thrilled to have him back.”
Detroit’s 25-year run of consecutive postseason appearances came to an end in 2015-16 and the Red Wings have missed the playoffs the past two seasons. They entered their final game of the season on Saturday against the New York Islanders 27th overall in the NHL with a 30-39-12 record.
Still, Ilitch pointed to Holland’s performance as both a scout and the team’s director of scouting as the Red Wings assembled the talent pool that won four Stanley Cups between 1997-2008 as an indication that Holland can mastermind the current rebuild.
”Ken Holland has had the experience of seeing a Detroit Red Wings team in the 1980s build from the ground all the way up to the Stanley Cup champion Kirk Cousins Jersey Big
,” Ilitch said. ”That’s the blueprint for our future and Ken knows that.”
Holland has traded to restructure the team and holds an NHL-high 11 picks in the upcoming entry draft.
”I understand there’s a big challenge ahead here going forward,” Holland said. ”I look forward to the challenge of rebuilding the Detroit Red Wings.”
Holland indicated that he would address the future of coach Jeff Blashill on Tuesday when the Wings have scheduled their locker cleanout day. Womens Minnesota Vikings Jerseys
