The New York Jets say they will pay any fines and not penalize players if they violate a new NFL policy to stand or stay in the locker room during "The Star-Spangled Banner."

Jets owner Christopher Johnson said Wednesday the team is focused on working with players to advance social justice issues rather than creating club rules or penalties that restrict demonstrations.

The ruling approved by NFL owners fines teams for their players kneeling on the field during the national anthem in a move meant to stem widespread debate over protests started by former quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The policy leaves it up to individual teams to decide whether to pass that cost on by punishing players directly.

Johnson says he plans to meet with Jets players and coaches to discuss the decision. He says he'll support the players "wherever we land as a team."

As the powers-that-be at the Ohio State University attempt to figure out the future of football coach Urban Meyer Authentic Saquon Barkley Jersey , the school has hired an outside counsel to handle the investigation.

According to the Akron Beacon Journal, Mary Jo White will serve as the investigator. The name will ring plenty of bells for football fans, and not simply because she handled the recent investigation regarding the alleged workplace misconduct of former Panthers owner Jerry Richardson.

Six years ago , the league hired White to provide a kind of/sort of independent review of the evidence in the Bountygate scandal. And she called the evidence of guilt “overwhelming,” thanks in part to a gross mischaracterization of one key piece of it.

White insisted that audio from NFL Films proved that Saints defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove said to teammate Bobby McCray “give me my money” after Hargrove delivered a hit that appeared to injure the leg of Vikings quarterback Brett Favre during the 2009 NFC title game. But close inspection of the video and audio showed that it was inconclusive at best that Hargrove had actually said those words.

White’s insistence that Hargrove said “give me my money” came from her assertion that “you can see his lips moving.” But the video simply did not support that claim.

What relevance does this have to Ohio State’s investigation of Urban Meyer? It suggests, in my opinion Patrick Omameh Color Rush Jersey , that White is susceptible to giving the entity that hired her to do a job the outcome that the entity that hired her wants. Plenty of lawyers yield to that temptation, because clients typically prefer to hire (and to re-hire) lawyers who can get the clients whatever the clients want. White, in my opinion Customized Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys , gave the NFL what it wanted in the Bounty case. Ted Wells, in my opinion, gave the NFL what it wanted in #Deflategate.

That’s how some lawyers emerge as the go-to candidates to be hired to handle investigations like this. The executives of a given business have a way of finding out who will play the game Keelan Cole Jersey , and who won’t. And those who will play the game tend to be the ones who are more likely to get the gig.

So what do the persons who hired White want the bottom line of the Urban Meyer investigation to be? Once the answer to that question is known, it will become a lot easier to predict whether Meyer stays or goes.
