The notion that players are disrespecting the flag by demonstrating their belief that this country is not living up to the cherished ideals the flag represents is purely an invention of those who are willfully trampling those ideals on a daily basis. https://t.co/QsvcB8BLIo

The new anthem policy states that players "shall stand and show respect for the flag and anthem." Issue with this: it implies that those that kneeled weren't respecting the flag. Furthering the false idea that the protests were about the flag. The protests are about injustice.
Can NFL Legally Require Players to Stand for the Anthem?

Dear NFL, Here's your anthem policy solution: Players, coaches, team personnel, etc. stay in the locker room for the national anthem. They enter the game for pre-game introductions following the anthem. This is what CFB does. It's what you did until 2010. Signed, Common sense
Makes as Much Sense as This Policy
Coming soon, at a rally somewhere: “How about this one, folks? They didn’t want to make the players stand for the national anthem but you know what? We made them do it. We did it. Together. If we can do that together, what else can we do? Or should I say, ‘What can’t we do?'”
