NFL players and owners met in New York today for more than threes hours to diffuse the tensions resulting from the protests during the national anthem. Both sides agreed that the meeting was “productive”.
“Everyone who is part of our NFL community has a tremendous respect for our country, our flag, our anthem and our military,” their joint statement said. “In the best American tradition, we are coming together to find common ground and commit to the hard work required for positive change.”
Despite the meeting running longer than expected, its appears that the players will continue their protests when the games resume play on Thursday.
