If you're on the field, you will stand for the national anthem. It's a new rule just issued by the National Football League. The rule allows players to remain in the locker room, if they prefer, during the anthem. It also calls for fines against players who take the field and refuse to stand when the anthem is played. The players' union says it was not consulted about the new policy, and will examine whether it conflicts with the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
