According to a report byMichael McCarthy with Front Office Sports, the National Football League (NFL) is ditching on-field singers for the National Anthem, and the military/police honor guards may be nixed as well.
The anthem will still be played, however, you will not see the patriotic singer or the colors of our military and police behind them. Instead, television viewers that tune in will only see the disrespectful kneelers.
The objective is to strictly limit the number of people on the sidelines who can potentially infect players and coaches with COVID-19, said sources. By the same token, the league will also crack down on the number of credentialed reporters and photographers with access to the playing field. Given the pandemic, the number of medical personnel on the sidelines will remain the same.
The ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ will still be played before each NFL game, said sources. But the anthem will not be performed live, such as the annual Super Bowl anthem performance most recently sung by Demi Lovato before Super Bowl LIV in February.
Instead, the league’s 32 teams may ask performers to sing the anthem off-site, then pipe it live inside their stadium, or have singers pre-record the anthem elsewhere, then play their rendition before kickoff.
“This year will be different due to COVID concerns. They want to limit the number of people around the players on the field,” said a Front Office Sports source.
So basically, hundreds of players can tackle each other, huddle together, fill up a locker room, and travel together but a person standing in the field singing without anyone close to them is a threat? Give me a break.
Just one more reason not to turn those games on.

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot: 'We Need Gun Control, Not Federal Troops'
Chicago, ran by Democrats and infested with crime, has only seen an increase in looting and violence over the past several weeks. However, instead of accepting calls for federal HOPE response, Mayor Lori Lightfoot declared that they do not need federal help, and began to push for more gun control.
She obviously does not understand that criminals do not care about gun control. Criminals break the law, so what makes her think that taking guns from the good people will keep them from the hands of the bad people? All it does is leave good people defenseless.

You'll Never Believe Which Hollywood Star Was Almost Lured Into Pedophile Island
In the coming weeks and months, I believe that we are going to learn a lot more about Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, and everyone else involved than we'd really like to know.
It's hard to believe that this sort of thing - that is sex trafficking - is going on in the world and not only that, but how massive it is.
Teachers Concerned That Parents Might Overhear Them Brainwashing Kids About This
Now that school is starting back up, many parents have opted to keep their kids home and either homeschooling their kids or public schooling them from home.
Now, keep in mind that this public school at home is not the same as homeschooling. Even a lot of the new homeschoolers aren't homeschooling, it's more of "pandemic schooling".
NFL Is Making Another Big Change to the National Anthem and the American Flag
If you keep up with my writings, then you already know that I'm done with professional sports.
I'm not going to support bending a knee to a group of terrorists who are destroying our country. Until they change their stance on politics being brought into sports and stop catering to liberals, I'm done.
