Goodell: Players Not Trying to Disrespect The Flag

NEW YORK-National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell says he believes players who kneel during the National Anthem are not trying to disrespect the flag. 

He,however, added that the league still believes they should stand.

Goodell spoke Thursday after a two-day meeting of NFL Owners in New York City.

He said that there would be no change in the league’s policy which states that players should stand for the anthem, but they are not required to do so.
