The NFL and the NFL Players Association have a new case design guidelines for the league’s future.
The league’s new guidelines come after years of scrutiny and backlash after some players were fined or suspended for wearing non-NFL apparel during the 2016-17 season.
It was only a matter of time before the NFL and players union took steps to address the issue, and today the NFLPA released new guidelines for their first-ever case design.
“It’s been a long road,” NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith said.
“We’ve been talking about it for a long time, but we’ve never had the opportunity to have a case design for the entire league.
I think it’s the right time for that.”
We have the opportunity now to really get this right.
The league is taking this very seriously, and the players want to see us implement the rule, but the league needs to make it work.
I want to make sure that the players understand this is the right way to do it.
“The guidelines outline a set of guidelines for a case that will be produced and released to the public.
The guidelines will be released in the coming weeks, but in a brief press release today, NFLPA said the guidelines are based on feedback from players and will “provide clear guidance for the future.”
The new guidelines outline specific guidelines for each player, which are designed to help ensure the league and players can effectively communicate with each other.
Players will have to follow certain guidelines for cases that include uniforms and player numbers.
The new guidelines also state that no player can wear an unapproved team logo on his jersey or uniform without the permission of the team.
The rules also clarify that players cannot wear jerseys without a team’s permission, and players cannot take part in a trade without a waiver.
Players will also have to comply with certain standards regarding “public policy.”
The guidelines state that players must not “provoke, intimidate, threaten, harass, abuse, or harm” anyone, nor do they “violate any other provision of the United States Code, the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, or any international or national law.”
Players also will have their names, positions and team logos on the case, and they must wear them while on the field and in public.
The guidelines also require players to wear helmets, face shields and sleeves with at least a 1/4-inch gap at the front and back.
The NFLPA says that players will be required to wear them during games.
The NFL and NFLPA will have more to say about the guidelines at the league meeting on June 23.
