NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says players should stand for anthem

Giants co-owner John Mara was asked for his reaction to the constant criticism from President Donald Trump about the NFL's decision not to require players to stand for the national anthem.

"We just had two days of conversations with our owners of which this was a fair amount of the conversation and I think our clubs all see this the same way", Goodell said on Wednesday, per USA Today.

Those protests were conducted by players to protest the treatment of African Americans by law enforcement across the U.S. However, the league said it will not mandate that players stand for the anthem despite Trump's continued requests. "What we're trying to do is deal with the underlying issue and understand what it is they're protesting".

Wi-Fi security bug could leave just about everyone vulnerable
However, Ars Technica reports that Android and Linux users are more vulnerable to severe attacks than Windows or iOS users. If an attacker is in range, he can use key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs) to exploit the weakness in the WPA2 protocol.

Commissioner Roger Goodell and several owners said Tuesday at the league's fall meetings that altering the language from "should stand" to "must stand" was not discussed.

"It bears repeating that we were remiss in not fully comprehending the effect of the national anthem demonstration occurring on foreign soil has had on the men and women who have or continue to serve our country", a letter dated October 6 from Lamping read.

The protests had mostly fizzled out until last month, when Trump reignited the issue by decrying any player who kneeled during the anthem as a "son of a bitch" who should be fired.

Darjeeling: Pollice officer killed in clashes with GJM faction
State secretariat sources said that the DGP Surajit Kar Purokayastha would visit Darjeeling next week. The GJM cadres resisted the police advance resulting in violent clashes.

President Trump supported the idea of the NFL simply banning protests during the national anthem.

Trump has repeatedly expressed disdain for the protests since a rally in September.

Anthem protests began at the start of last season, when former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat on the bench during a preseason game's national anthem. Instead, he said, the team owners generally agreed it was important to listen to players' concerns.
