    So Much Winning .... TRUMP BREAKS NFL

    TRUMP BREAKS NFL: Commissioner Goodell Issues New Statement About National Anthem



    NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a letter on Tuesday that NFL players, coaches, and owners should stand during the national anthem.

    Goodell sent the letter to all 32 NFL teams in response to the recent national anthem protests ó which former San Francisco 49ersí quarterback Colin Kaepernick started in 2016 ó and that have come under recent scrutiny from President Donald Trump.



    Weíre tempted to suggest a conspiracy here ó but itís just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply canít conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Revenue is down and the President spoke uglier words about taking away their tax benefits. Surprised Goodell didn't say they WILL stand.
    The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.

    Same here. Just because he said they should doesn't mean a thing. It's widely known that Goodell is hated by pretty much everyone in the league. Wouldn't be surprised if more players took a knee now just to spite him.

    No surprise here: GURPS doesn't understand English and gets his "new" only from propaganda type sources.

    The word "should" is not compelling. It is not a directive. It is a request.

    The actual statement from Goodell is here: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...ational-anthem

    Standing for the national anthem is not a significant problem or issue that faces this country. It is an issue for the weak minded and the blind cult followers who voted for Trump and who Trump needs to distract from the utter failure of his agenda (whatever his agenda was or is) and the chaos that is his White House.

    It indeed represents several very large problems facing this country: anti-Americanism, race hustling, and identity politics. You can say that Donald Trump is the problem, but that's because you're a brainless progbot and mindless party apparatchik. Speaking of weak minded blind cult followers and all....

    This all started before Trump was elected president. Barry took a meh, whatever stance on the matter. President Trump, being a proud American, took offense to the action and spoke up about it. And he wasn't alone in that sentiment.

    Protest whatever you want and however you like. That's their choice. Deciding to disrespect the flag of our nation to bring attention to your cause is still disrespecting the flag. Fans don't have a problem with protesting, just a problem with the way they have chosen to do it.

    Since we don't have television, for me it's an easy decision not to watch. I catch the Skins' game on the radio that is played by a contemporary music radio station that cuts over to the game. The radio call is more exciting to me anyway. ANyone that remembers the days of Sonny, Sam & Frank will tell you that that trio made the call of the game come to life.

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?

    What the durhards don't understand is that we cannot be forced to watch and approve of their little tantrums. WE have free speech and rights as well. WE can choose to stop watching football AND we can criticize them as we see fit. What they want is to be able to act out and have their little fits, and have nobody disagree with them. Periodically we need to remind them that that is not how America works.
