“I plan to sit in the very near term with Coach Bowles and our players to discuss today’s decision regarding the National Anthem.  As I have in the past, I will support our players wherever we land as a team.  Our focus is not on imposing any Club rules, fines, or restrictions.  Instead we will continue to work closely with our players to constructively advance social justice issues that are important to us.  I remain extremely proud of how we demonstrated unity last season as well as our players’ commitment to strengthening our communities.”
