Not 100% on any contract simply an educated guess thereof.. Where big business is involved there usually exist a contract.
Your post that started this whole thing is quoted below:
Bold added by me for emphasis.....Hi Folks
Summer is coming to an end and the NFL football season is here however not without controversy.
The Cleveland police department and members thereof were scheduled to roll out the flag for Sundays opening season game.. However the police union decided that due in part that many Cleveland Brown players are taking a knee as opposed to standing during the Anthem said members of the Cleveland police union will not be rolling out the flag.
If the NFL and or the Cleveland Browns organization contracted with the police and city to perform said function, the union would be in breach of contract. Contract aside I feel the police union is wrong on this issue.
The issue is an interesting constitutional issue. Said players are simply exercising their first amendment right, a right that said police union members swore an oath to uphold and defend, hence I feel they should take the high ground and perform the task at hand.
Interesting to note, when and if the owners bottom line starts to take a hit, I would imagine said kneeling practice would be abolished, until such time look for the practice of kneeling during the anthem to continue...
So your entire argument is based wholly and entirely upon an "If" that you consider an "educated guess" pulled completely out of thin air presented throughout the thread as an actual valid point. And I'm sure that was done for the totally innocent purpose of instigating.... discussion.
