I believe this bill is in retaliation for players not standing during the playing of the national anthem. I always wondered why the anthem was played since both teams were American. I can see playing it at the Olympics or World Cup. Then I found out that the Dept of Defense contracted with and paid the NFL to play the national anthem at each game as a recruitment tool. If it hadn't been for this business deal, the anthem would never have been played at games. End the contract and the anthem stops, which ends the controversy for everyone!
