If you guessed the NFL, step forward and collect your winnings. After more than a year of rampant NFL player protests, the National Football League is now seen as one of the most divisive brand names in America, a new report finds. As reported in the New York Times, a new Morning Consult survey found that the NFL is viewed as “polarizing,” by nearly as many people as view President Donald Trump’s hotels that way. The survey found that the NFL now figures in among the top ten most polarizing brand names. The top ten most divisive list includes Trump hotels, CNN, NBC News, The New York Times, MSNBC, Fox News, the NFL, ABC News, HuffPost, and CBS News. In large part, sports league ended up in the number seven most divisive spot because President Trump criticized the league during a rally for a U.S. Senate candidate in Alabama on September 22.

Drudge Reporters Staff posted a topic in SportsThe National Football League’s owners will discuss at meetings next week whether to unilaterally change the league policy to require players to stand during the national anthem. The decision to consider the change came after weeks of persistent criticism from President Donald Trump about players protesting during the anthem, including his call for fans to boycott games if the demonstrations continue. In a conference call, NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said league officials, owners, fans, and likely certain players are frustrated that the issue has dominated the game in recent weeks. He said owners will consider player input on the issue, but suggested that a rule change would not require player approval. “I don’t believe that the anthem per se is something that needs to be collectively bargained,” Lockhart said.
