Donald Trump releases 'Stand for the National Anthem' petition

Eli Harold Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reed kneel during the national anthem before a NFL game. Protests have reached down to the college level as students reconcile with divisive language

"Again, we believe that our player should stand for the national anthem". The NFL stopped short of meeting Trump's desire that players be forced to stop protesting.

"The President has asked for a list of supporters who stand for the National Anthem", the petition reads.

The US president criticized the National Football League in a Twitter post on Wednesday, accusing it of "too much talk, not enough action".

No decision has been taken during this meeting on the thorny issue of the protests of the players during the national anthem, which divides the world of sports and american society the past several weeks. A joint statement released by the NFL and the NFL Players Association described the meeting in NY as "productive".

I expect Eric Bailly to be back next week but I can not tell you about ( Marouane) Fellaini or Pogba because I have no idea". Jose Mourinho insists he still does not know when Paul Pogba will be able to make his comeback from injury.

"We just had two days of conversations with our owners of which this was a fair amount of the conversation and I think our clubs all see this the same way", Goodell said Wednesday. Goodell - and anyone who has been paying attention since former San Francisco 49er Colin Kaepernick started the protest in 2016 - knows why the protests are happening.

The president began Wednesday tweeting that players' kneeling to protest racial injustice and police violence during the national anthem is disrespectful to the United States.

Donald Trump is continuing his attack on players who protest during the national anthem. "But really talking a lot about with the opportunity that exists with our players to try to go and really make a difference in our communities in a positive way".

He has called the players' actions "disgraceful" and remarked that seeing military veteran amputees reminded him how important it is to stand for the anthem and respect the military. Polls have found that a majority of Americans disapprove of the anthem protests but are unhappy with the way Trump has handled the issue. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said any of his players kneeling during the anthem risked being benched.
