The NFL recently revealed that they will fine players and organizations for kneeling during the national anthem. The rules were adopted by the NFL owners on May 23 during a meeting in Atlanta. With the ruling, NFL players will not be forced to remain on the field during the national anthem, but they will face a penalty if they protest during the singing of the song.

During a recent edition of “Ask A.R.,” former NFL players Adalius Thomas and Sergio Joachim shared their thoughts on the controversial ban on kneeling during the national anthem.
