Rex Ryan requires his players to stand for the national anthem. The Bills head coach explained it is a sign of respect for the men and women in the armed forces. This was in response to the controversy surrounding San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the anthem. RYAN IS RIGHT THAT ALL NFL PLAYERS MUST STAND UP FOR THEIR COUNTRY AND ITS ANTHEM. THE NFL HAS THE BACK OF ALL THOSE IN UNIFORM.
