What are Contract Ambiguities and How to Avoid Them

When the NFL's anthem policy came out I had a problem with it. 

Now I didn't have a political problem with it.

I had an ambiguity problem with it.

According to ESPN "The policy subjects teams to a fine if a player or any other team personnel do not show respect for the anthem. That includes any attempt to sit or kneel."

To me that wording is way too vague.

What is and is not respectful for the anthem?

Are fingers crossed over the heart while your head is bowed, disrespectful?

Is the black panther fist in the air disrespectful?

There are a hundred different ways to protest while also riding the line of what the NFL might find disrespectful.

Who decides?

If the NFL wanted a strong policy it should have been exact. As in this is exactly what to do during the anthem to be respectful.

Contracts are the exact same thing. 

You need to hire an attorney to write your contracts.

A good attorney will make sure to leave out anything that can be left up to interpretation and only have language that is exact and easy to follow.

Otherwise and eventually, your business will be sued or need to sue someone.
