Nicolle Wallace Slams NFL: They Don’t ‘Have the Fortitude to Stand Up For Their Players’ (Mediaite)

With new polling out which shows that the NFL is now one of the most polarizing brands in the United States, the league is reportedly considering a rule change which would require players to stand during the National Anthem.

Thursday on Deadline: White House, Nicolle Wallace blasted the league for possibly caving to the wishes of President Donald Trump while leaving their players to twist in the wind.

“I’m shocked personally that the NFL doesn’t have the fortitude to stand up for their players’ right to protest,” Wallace said. “The Congress doesn’t yield to Donald Trump’s will, not even the Republicans in Congress. The media sure as hell doesn’t yield to Donald Trump’s will. Why does it look like the NFL might?”
