The rule is in the policy that was agreed upon between the NFL and the NFL Players Association for the upcoming season. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk writes:
Per multiple sources, the deal specifically prohibits players from engaging in certain behaviors this season. Players cannot attend indoor night clubs, indoor bars (except to pickup food), indoor house parties (with 15 or more people), indoor concerts, professional sporting events, or indoor church services that allow attendance above 25 percent of capacity.
With MLB teams traveling to different cities, there have already been a couple of COVID-19 outbreaks, including the Miami Marlins having over 20 positive tests early in the season. The NBA season just began on Thursday, but they are taking the approach of having the entire league playing in a "bubble" in Orlando.
NFL rosters are much larger than NBA rosters, so playing in a bubble would be virtually impossible.
Brandon Tatum reacted to the ban on NFL players going to church as only he can. Check it out:
COVID-19 has left sports, along with almost everything else in this country, on very shaky ground. These players are practically forced to kneel for the anthem, but unable to kneel at church unless they are filled less than 25% to capacity.

“Being dragged unwillingly into politics in this way can compromise an artist’s personal values while disappointing and alienating fans,” the letter from the Artist Rights Alliance reads. “For artists that do choose to engage politically in campaigns or other contexts, this kind of unauthorized public use confuses their message and undermines their effectiveness.”

WATCH: Don Lemon Takes IQ Test Live On Air to Mock Trump...Then Makes a Fool of Himself
I think Don Lemon as well as practically every other news anchor on CNN could learn a lot about the Bible, especially the verse that says, "pride cometh before the fall."
Lemon made an attempt at mocking President Trump by talking about taking an IQ test, but he ended up making a complete fool of himself.

AMAZING! More Than 100 Police Departments Pull Out of Security Detail for DNC
There seems to be some common sense that remains within the police departments.
I don't mean that as a jab at police, but rather at the country full of idiots who lack common sense. My point is that contrary to the rest of the country, at least many police departments have common sense because they're not stupid enough to put themselves in harm's way like the liberals are doing on the street.
