Bucks player was asked to take hand out of his pocket. Refused to comply. Cops took appropriate action.

Yes, I agree. There's a lot of wrongdoing that goes on, but don't give the cops a problem. Resistance is pretty much probably cause. Cops are just as on edge as the citizens are. They want to get hope to their families just the same, so just make it easy.

Simple answer.
NFL = Business
NFL Players = employee
Fans = consumer
Owners = Business owners
So, employee takes a personal stand on something they believe in.  Consumers just want to purchase their product without any personal beliefs of an employee.  Business owners figure out employees personal protests are starting to hurt the bottom line.  Business owners care about the bottom line more than they care about employee or consumers beliefs...  Hence business owners make new rule for employees 3 YEARS after protest start once the bean counters got them their figures..

Manfred,
You should know your facts before you spout out your agenda.  The rest of the team (ingrates) were about 5-10 feet away from Villanueva when that happened.
Do you get angry when half the stadium is in line buying beer and nachos during the anthem?  Is that a sign of disrespect.  Do you get angry when most of the LHAC is sitting in their respective locker rooms while the anthem is played most nights just right outside the doors?
I think everyone should stand and pay respects during the anthem, however I also have a healthy respect for individual rights, which the players had until the recent rule change.  I have no problem with the league making the rule change, but I find it funny that people complain about someone exercising their constitutionally protected right as not being patriotic when the men and women in uniform who defend the country do so to ensure those same rights.

Wow, I ask a simple question expecting further intelligent discussion, and I get attacked from you because my opinion about a bunch of overpaid sports figures differs from yours. Some people have to go to the restroom as the Anthem is being played. Some, Like the former POTUS, look the other way and fidget, on camera, rather than pay proper respect. How were YOU raised, to disrespect others, and find fault with long-held standards, because it interferes with your "individuality"? Were you ever in the military?
