As expected, the reactions started pouring in Wednesday when the NFL announced its new national anthem policy.
From players to organizations and groups outside of football, many are acknowledging the league's polarizing decision.
Eagles owner Jeff Lurie released a statement Wednesday night (see story). Here's a look at how his team could be affected (see story), while players have started to express their thoughts on the policy.
"Ultimately it is taking the players' voice away," Lane Johnson told NBC Sports Philadelphia's Derrick Gunn. "I think there will be some backlash from their decision."
Malcolm Jenkins and Chris Long also released statements on their Twitter accounts.
Here's a look at some of the reactions:
