NFL bends the knee



July 2, 2020

NFL will allow players to wear racism, police brutality, patches

         The NFL will allow its players to wear helmet decals or jersey patches recognizing those impacted by systemic racism and police brutality throughout the 2020 season, Per the NFL Network's Steve Wyche.

By allowing this, a player could wear a helmet decal with "G.F." for George Floyd, or a pig image, or "R.W.G.I." for Rioters With Good Intentions. The NFL has 'bended the knee.'

The decision to wear decals or patches will be left up to individual players, although teams may decide to act as a whole, Wyche added.

In addition, "Lift Every Voice and Sing", known as the Black national anthem, will be played before all 16 Week 1 games. The song will be played prior to the playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner".
