"We have about six or seven players that are involved in this protest at this point", Goodell told reporters after a two-day meeting with team owners and the players' labor union in New York City, saying he hoped that number would eventually be zero.
Donald Trump refuses to take a knee when it comes to countering the wave of national anthem protests across the NFL.
On Tuesday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell expressed his belief that everyone "should" stand for the national anthem but noted that the league would not institute a rule to force players to do so.
Trump's petition is paid for by the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, and is found on the Republican National Committee's website. And so that was something we continued to focus on this morning.
Trump, however, has consistently called for any players who join the protests - which were started last season by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick - to be fired by their teams.
Goodell reiterated that the league and its 32 clubs "believe everyone should stand for the national anthem". In a Twitter post on Wednesday, he called the NFL's decision, "Too much talk, not enough action".
For nearly a month, the american president is engaged in a standoff with the NFL players posing a knee on the ground during the national anthem. "NFL executives and owners joined NFLPA executives and player leaders to review and discuss plans to utilize our platform to promote equality and effectuate positive change", the statement said. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said any of his players kneeling during the anthem risked being benched. Polls have found that a majority of Americans disapprove of the anthem protests but are unhappy with the way Trump has handled the issue.
As of Wednesday evening, neither the National Football League nor the NFLPA has released a statement addressing Trump's petition.
