Minor League Hockey League Promises No Knees During Anthem

There's one place where you won't see any players taking a knee during the national anthem.  That's a Peoria Rivermen hockey game.  In fact, the entire Southern Professional Hockey League is ordering its players to stand for the national anthem.  SPHL president Jim Combs yesterday said they've had a rule since 2009 that requires players to stand.  Combs said it wouldn't ever cross the mind of hockey players or hockey fans to take a knee during the national anthem.
