National League Football season is back, and so are the protests against the U.S. flag and the national anthem, despite the national outrage that has erupted in the past over such protests.
Thursday evening during the preseason NFL games, some players still knelt during the playing of the national anthem, while others raised their fists in the air.

President Trump slammed the NFL players in a two-part Twitter statement Friday morning, saying they should either stand for the anthem or be suspended without pay:
“The NFL players are at it again – taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their “outrage” at something that most of them are unable to define. They make a fortune doing what they love…. Be happy, be cool! A football game, that fans are paying soooo much money to watch and enjoy, is no place to protest. Most of that money goes to the players anyway. Find another way to protest. Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!”
Last year, the NFL’s disrespect of the national anthem inspired DML News to create the “I Stand For My Flag” bumper sticker. Now that the NFL protests have begun again, demand for the bumper stickers has returned as well, as patriotic Americans are seeking a way to send a clear message that America’s flag commands our deepest respect.
THE BUMPER STICKER is just 4.99
It measures 3 inches by 8.25 inches and will be mailed via UPS.

The NFL released the following statement on the preseason protests:
“The NFL has been engaged in constructive discussions with the NFL Players Association regarding the anthem and issues of equality and social justice that are of concern to many Americans. While those discussions continue, the NFL has agreed to delay implementing or enforcing any club work rules that could result in players being disciplined for their conduct during the performance of the anthem.
“Meanwhile, there has been no change in the NFL’s policy regarding the national anthem. The anthem will continue to be played before every game, and all player and non-player personnel on the field at that time are expected to stand during the presentation of the flag and performance of the anthem. Personnel who do not wish to do so can choose to remain in the locker room.
“We remain committed to working with the players to identify solutions and to continue making progress on important social issues affecting our communities.”
