Listen: we’re no fans of football players like Colin Kaepernick taking a knee during the national anthem, but it looks like the NFL is stuck for a solution and considering assessing 15-yard penalties for teams that kneel during the anthem, should they even agree to even come out of the locker room while it’s being played.

An idea being floated in the room goes like this: It would be up to the home team on whether both teams come out of the locker room for the anthem, and, should teams come out, 15-yard penalties could be assessed for kneeling.

Yes, it is.
