If you were on Social media over the weekend, you might of come across the story that the NFL is banning the singing of the National Anthem before game starting in 2017!

We checked several different sources and this is what we came up with:

According to Snopes.com, this is FALSE! "Although the NFL may have returned taxpayer money that was paid to them to cover the costs of patriotic displays at football games, the league has not moved to ban the playing of the U.S. national anthem beginning in 2017."


The website HOAX is also claiming this to be FALSE! " A false social media rumor holds that the NFL will be banning the playing of the U.S. national anthem in 2017. "

Finally, the website ThatsFake.com also claiming the story to be FALSE! "The rumors are false. While many fake news websites have capitalized on the story, there has been no such announcement from the NFL."


So if you are planning on heading up to Indy for a Colts game, be prepared to remove your hat, cover your heart with your hand and sing the National Anthem!
