NFL Commissioner Goodell and owners caved to players and will be joining them,and BLM, financing their community agitation in order to buy their cooperation and try to prevent…
NFL Commissioner Goodell sounded like a scared, insincere little kid who is being made to apologize to his sister for pulling her hair as he makes a statement following their Wednesday meeting.
He lies from start to finish and displays the evidence of how he’s in way over his head, as are many in the NFL, when it comes to issues of leadership. For whatever reason, he and the owners and coaching staffs are totally in league with the BLM field thugs.
He opens by saying, “We believe everyone should stand for the national anthem, that’s an important part of our policy.” Truthfully, it simply isn’t. If it were they’d, like badmouthing an official for a call, they’d impose fines and restrict playing time to offenders. It’s an ancillary part of their policy, not important at all beyond the fan outrage they’re experiencing.
He lies a little more, saying, “It’s also an important part of our game that we all take great pride in and it’s also important for us to honor our flag and to our country.” That’s also proven to be a lie by the league owners and management’s misconduct and alliance with the disrespectful players.
One thing once was true in his opening salvo, the statement, “And we think our fans expect us to do that,” which is increasingly not the case. Now we expect them to be desecrating, anti-American thugs, and many of us are relishing watching the league self-destruct. [VIDEO BELOW]
It will be better than a Super Bowl to see the spoiled brat thug players forced back to realistic incomes and lifestyles and the owners having to eat big losses on their greatly devalued franchises.
Pandering Goodell speaks for the league, seemingly deathly afraid of himself being the target of the field thugs and being forced out, saying, “I would tell you there’s a great deal of support for the efforts that our players have identified, not only support but a recognition these are important issues for our communities. They’re American issues and certain things that we really want to as clubs and as a league, want to not only support but also be a part of and try to help.”
He’s not talking about fan support for what the field thugs are doing, but ownership and management support, apparently coming to the realization that the players control the league now. Bozo is wrong as usual, the fans and increasingly the former fans do, as they’ll eventually, in the coming months, discover.
Goodell doesn’t have it figured out yet or won’t admit that this is not just about disrespecting our flag, anthem and nation, but it’s about telling every white person in the stands and at home that they’re racists and that offensive sentiment being supported by empty suits like Goodell, NFL owners and management.
The bigots are the ones taking a knee, holding up a black supremacy fist or sitting as they accuse the rest of us of having their prejudices. If owners and coaches want to support that insulting behavior, as they apparently have chosen to do, then please, go for it.
Put it on the Jumbotron and have flag burnings at halftime and maybe a marching band backing up some BLM thugs chanting “pigs in a blanket.” Why restrict themselves to just the opening ceremony – why go halfway?
Goodell basically says the league and the players have decided that the wishes of the fans not to be demeaned in this manner don’t matter. What their goons want their goons get. Fans can either take it or leave. Thanks for making it such an easy decision, Roger. Don’t save my seat.
