Whether or not Matthews actually follows through with his threat is still to be seen, and of course, that's assuming the National Football League passes a rule saying players must stand for the anthem, which may or may not happen. The memo was not announcing a policy change, it was simply Goodell's stance on the controversy: "As we said yesterday, there will be a discussion of these issues at the owners meeting next week".
Soon after publishing the tweet, Matthews deleted it. His half-brother, who was killed in Afghanistan, served 10 years in the Marines and his father served 21 years in the Marines.
Trump has repeatedly criticized players and teams who kneel during the anthem to protest, saying that any players who refused to stand should be fired.

Australian police suspect elderly woman killed by crocodile
Anne Cameron, 79, went missing on Tuesday from an aged care facility near Port Douglas, a coastal town in the state of Queensland. He added that as the items were "located near (a) creek bank, we can not rule out the possibility of a croc attack".
"Moving forward, I don't want this to be a publicity stunt", Matthews told ESPN last month. This is a movement that started as a protest against the prejudice and oppression many minorities in America face especially as it relates to police brutality. "I fully stand with my brother Kap, and I plan to continue to do that". "If you see wrong and don't say anything, that's wrong". It should be worth noting that the players are peacefully protesting, though, and they aren't protesting the national anthem itself. "You have that right, that freedom of speech, and you're not allowing that to happen".
