The NFL won’t have any live performances of the national anthem before games this season, as it reportedly attempts to limit the number of people with access to the field to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, according to Front Office Sports
The tradition of having performers sing the national anthem before games has become a source of controversy due to social justice protests. Although the anthem won’t be performed live, there will still be recordings of the song played before the game.
The NFL could also limit the presence of military and police honor guards on the field. Those groups are often a part of the national anthem ceremony at games.
The NFL is doing there best to walk a fine line here. They don’t want to watch their ratings fall like the NBA has but they also know that there will be a lot of virtue signaling. Could they be barring them over the Chinese Coronavirus? Of course. Could they be using the Chinese Coronavirus as an excuse to bar them? This is, of course, could be true as well.
