"No one is protesting the national anthem. It's not a National Anthem protest. It's a protest that happens during the national anthem, against systematic oppression and a bunch of different things that we're dealing with out here. I wish people would understand that, and then maybe people wouldn't be so offended by it."
The reboot of Vince McMahon's XFL will require players to stand during the National Anthem prior to games. The NFL has drawn outrage from fans over the past two years when players used the anthem to protest criminal justice reform and demonstrate against police brutality by kneeling or raising fists. Those demonstrations won't be allowed in the XFL, which plans to start play in 2020.
