The Legends Football League, founded as the Lingerie Football League, wants viewers to know that its players will be standing proudly for the national anthem before games this season. “Our nation’s flag and anthem are far too sacred,” the league said in a statement.

LFL will be releasing a Video Statement to the controversy surrounding our National Anthem protests.

We like the sentiment; our only wish is that the announcer could have toned it down a bit in order to make the statement sound a little less skeevy.
