Trent Murphy Jersey

  • Five days after the NFL tried to solve the anthem issue Anthony Castonzo Jersey , it continues to be obvious that the NFL found a way to make things worse.

    Already, two members of Congress on opposite sides of the anthem debate have chastised the NFL for its decision.

    On Saturday, New York Representative Peter King complained about Jets CEO Christopher Johnson’s decision to foot the bill for any fines imposed on players who protest in violation of the new rule, which requires players unwilling to stand to stay in the locker room. Now Randy Gregory Jersey , Minnesota Representative Keith Ellison has declared that he will ignore the NFL for stifling the players’ right to protest.

    “Friends who know me, know that I love football,” Ellison said on Twitter, via “But I won鈥檛 be watching this NFL season because of the unfair cowardly and idiotic kneeling ban. #BoycottNFL.”

    And so it will likely continue , with those opposed to the protests finding fault with certain aspects of the NFL’s new anthem policy and those who support the right to protest finding fault with other aspects of the NFL new anthem policy. As NFL P.R. gaffes go, this one could ending up being one of the worst in recent years, and that’s saying something.

    Two of the most controversial plays in recent NFL history would have gone the other way if the proposed new catch rule had been in effect.

    NFL head of officiating Al Riveron tweeted that the infamous Dez Bryant non-catch against the Packers in the 2014 playoffs, and the infamous Jesse James non-catch against the Patriots in the 2017 season Trent Murphy Jersey , both would have been complete under the new catch rule.

    The catch rule has been under scrutiny for years, but the Bryant play, which possibly cost the Cowboys the game against the Packers, brought it under particularly intense scrutiny. And the James play Allen Robinson Jersey , which may have handed the Patriots home-field advantage over the Steelers, appears to have been the last straw.

    Whether the new catch rule turns out to be any less controversial than the old catch rule remains to be seen. But it would have changed two of the most controversial plays the NFL has seen.
