XFL CEO Warns There Will Be Consequences For Players Not Respecting The National Anthem

XFL CEO and commissioner Oliver Luck recently appeared on former Green Bay Packers linebacker AJ Hawk’s podcast, The HawkCast. On the matter of players standing for the national anthem in the relaunch of the XFL here is what he had to say:

“Vince feels strongly about that, so that will be one of those things that will differentiate us from the NFL. Remember, unlike the NFL we will not have a union when we start. There won’t be collective bargaining….we could say to a player, ‘Hey there is a clause in the contract that says I hereby agree to stand for the National Anthem.’

“Period. End of story. That won’t have to be collectively bargained. My position would be as long as a player knows beforehand that that’s part of the contract then that’s a workplace rule and we can enforce that workplace rule.

“If you go into a contractual situation, knowing what the workplace rules are, you’re obligated to follow those rules, otherwise there will be consequences.”
