Recently the NFL threatened Texas over a bathroom bill requiring people to use the bathroom corresponding to the gender on their birth certificate. Texas Governor Greg Abbott has the perfect response to the NFL’s hollow threats. If you’re going to try to dictate our state laws to appease 1% of the US Population, we’re going to make laws requiring your athletes to show respect for the national anthem:
“The NFL has coddled its players who refused to stand for the National Anthem, Imagine this … I might just pass a bill here in the state of Texas mandating that all NFL players have to stand and put their hand on the heart when the National Anthem is played.” – Abbott

Many suggest the governor is not serious about doing this, it’s just a smart response back to the NFL trying to dictate state law. The governor did slam the NFL for several issues they have like domestic violence. The governor told the NFL to back off and do your job, which is throw a football around a field. The governor feels the NFL has no business involving itself in politics.
