>> The start of the NFL season is less than two months away and still no consensus when it comes to the National Anthem protest. The NFL players association announcing Tuesday that it has filed a grievance against the NFL for its new policy that all players stand for the anthem or stay inside the locker room.
Teams will face a fine if any player violates the order. Here's NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, back in May.>> We want people to be respectful to the National Anthem. We want people to stand, that's all personnel, and make sure that they treat this moment in a respectful fashion.
>> But the Players Association Tuesday derided the policy for infringing on players rights saying in a tweet quote, this new policy, imposed by the NFL's governing body without consultation with the NFLPA, is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement and infringes on players' rights. The players aren't the only one upset with the new policy, President Trump, who has been the most vociferous opponent of players taking a knee during the anthem to protest police shootings of unarmed black men, refuses to back down.
Trump lashed out against NFL players at a recent rally even though the anthem policy was widely seen as NFL owners bending to his will.>> We put our hands on our hearts for the pledge of allegiance and we do that proudly. And we stand for the National Anthem.
>> Colin Kaepernick who began the protest during the 2016 season hasn't been picked up by any team for the last two seasons and is suing the NFL and team owner for colluding to keep him out of a job.>> You know police brutality is a huge thing.
