  • TAKING A KNEE: Jerry Jones and Dallas Cowboys take a knee BEFORE the National Anthem.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the NFL will not adopt a rule forcing players to stand for the National Anthem.

Donald Trump had demanded such a rule. Sad!

Dallas Cowboy owner Jerry Jones is still quoted as saying he'll bench any player who does not stand. Goodell said the league believed players "should" stand.

Man your Twitter stations.
