NFL owners have unanimously decided to permit only the official National Anthem to be played at games, putting an end to debates stirred up by those pushing alternative songs. Despite some controversy, the league stands firm in its commitment to honoring America with its authentic anthem.

League Superintendent Joe Barron emphasized the importance of unity, stating, “There’s no room for division. We must focus on honoring America above all else.”

However, some critics argue that the decision seems inconsistent, given that many stadiums also play “God Bless America” as a pre-game song. Nonetheless, Barron remains resolute, dismissing such criticisms as concessions to opposing viewpoints.

With this decision, the NFL puts an end to another skirmish in the ongoing culture wars, reaffirming its allegiance to tradition and patriotism.
