NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell
says players should stand for anthem

CBS Sports, by Staff

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says players should stand for the national anthem, speaking out amid the furor over some players´ protests before games. "We believe everyone should stand for the national anthem. That´s an important part of our policy," Goodell said in a press conference Wednesday in New York. But Goodell said he would not commit to making a rule stating players must stand for the anthem. "Our players will state to you publicly they are not doing this in any way to be disrespectful to the flag," Goodell said. He said the league is "not looking to get into politics, but what

What a spineless PC squish Goodell is. That press conference was a total joke. Goodell turned himself into a pretzel trying to be PC and kiss the sorry buts of those on the left. The ratings will continue to tank and they will continue to lose millions of dollars. Kaepernick never should have been allowed to get away with his despicable behavior. It has gone down hill since because Goodell and his ilk didn´t have a spine to stop that behavior that clearly violated NFL rules.

I hope more people stop watching. We have not made a painful enough impact yet. And now it looks like is going to seep into basketball.

If you aren´t willing to stand respectfully for our flag and Country, then you have disrespected me, and everyone who have protected Our Country.

I threw the disrespected in, so they may understand...

It´s all in the official NFL operations manual. Players must stand, face the flag, hold their helmets in their left hand and refrain from talking.Failure to do so can result in fines and suspension. Why won´t the owners and the league talk about their own regualtions? Cowatds?

Roger is the biggest jack-o I´ve ever seen. Growing up in Jersey in the 60´s, he would have been beaten up after school every day.

The left is killing their sports and blacks can´t see it and are so dumb about their own history of the KKK Democrat Party. How pathetic!

Good. grief. Roger, as NFL Commissioner you should know it´s already a rule that players have to be out of the locker room and on the field, standing for the national anthem.

You chose not to enforce the rule when Kap sat on his sorry A on the bench and then started kneeling last season. And look what that got you. The multi-Millionaire Grievance League.

You and the petrified owners have made your PC beds with the BLM-SJW thugs and the fans are NOT coming back. And I say this as a 50+ year former football fanatic.

So, go ahead and be a post turtle, Roger, you and the NFL have lost me for good.

His word salads are more insufferable than Obama´s, if that´s possible.

We´ve discussed...commitment to...working for a year...etc.

No results, no decisions, no stance, no rules, no punishments, no enforcement.

Goodell is absolutely stealing $40 mil a year to say and do nothing. He is a coward hiding in plain sight.

There is either an Operational rule that has been sited before requiring players to stand for the national anthem, or there isn´t a rule.

The owners are half the problem. They are tolerating this crap.

Just more victimhood by millionaire athletes who have no desire to put their own money or time into programs but demand that the white owners do.

The NFL is all but toast. Good job athletes. You have deprived your fellow younger athletes the opportunity to become millionaires like yourselves.

Not my problem.

I will never watch another millisecond of the NFL or NBA. I will never buy another NFL team t-shirt again either. Wouldn´t wear one if somebody gave me one either. Too embarrassing.

So the commissioner can be as wishy washy as he wants. No skin off of my rear end. Of course, when teams in the league have to start declaring bankruptcy, and have to ask their racist thug players to redo their contracts for pennies on the dollar, I don´t see where that wishy washy spineless persona that Goodell has established is going to help him at all.

The NFL is dead to me. Don´t miss it at all!!!

It’s just common sense to most people in the country that the football players should stand appropriately, just like all other Americans, during the rendition of the National Anthem. There is a time and place for everything, nobody is saying that the players don’t have a right to protest, just that it is not the right time when the National Anthem is being played, and also that it is not the right place before a captive audience who paid big money to watch a football game and not to attend political protests by players that many of the fans don’t agree with. I guess that the NFL as a business also has the right to commit international suicide if they wish, because their disappearing fan base and TV audience was a big portion of the entities that paid the freight what allowed those players to be millionaires.

I think Goodell gave a wishy-washy response because of the lawsuit from Kapernick.

With Goodell saying players "should" stand cut Kepernick off at the knees.

I also think that Goodell is a punk, who is weak, and scared to address what the players must do. And that is Stand.

Now, the real pain of all this nonsense is finally reaching the place where it counts- In the Goodell wallet.

Really, this is nothing but a strategy from the Alinski leftists who are seeking to destroy our nation. It has been an exquisitely performed stunt and has worked perfectly. Destroy a nations heritage and identity. Ruin everything that makes them unique as a nation. American Football is All American - that and baseball. Pro football was nearly the last place all Americans could find unity as just Americans- supporting our teams to the hilt, and politics did not matter. We were Falcons or Cowboys or Giants, not Democrats/Republicans, liberals or conservatives, anit-gun or pro gun, pro-life or pro-choice, or Gays, or blacks, legals or illegals or whatnots! Now, that is all ruined. As the leftists continue their onslaught on our monuments, our sports, our unity and our sense of nation, we angrily come apart at the seams. All that will be left is a sad memory of what we once were - - One nation, Under God.

I must say, though; this absorption and dissolution of my once beloved- Hell, cherished!- NFL has been just about the most successful attack against an American institution I have ever witnessed. Honestly, I never even thought such a thing could be possible. And here I am playing along like any other useful idiot. I sincerely wish there was something I could do about that.

You heard it here first...
wait until Super Bowl Sunday.
That´s when the s*** will hit the fan.

Who will sing the Anthem? Will the singer "protest". Will the players kneel or thrust up fists. Will the crowd boo loudly. Will the advertisers be skittish. Will there be massive public backlash?

He´s following the muslims, liberals/ democrats playbook.

That is, tell one party, the viewers, the "deplorables" one thing. Tell then the thing you think they want to hear.

And, tell the Owners & Players, something else. In other words, lie. (I see the Clinton´s press secretary is still advising you...lol...oh, well)

Sorry, NFL...the party is over.

Even when you fire Goodell, (with, I am sure no doubt a Golden Parachute). It won´t matter.

I suspect you figure your fan base is now, fantasy football players and girls. I´d say good luck with that,..but ...it won´t matter. That´s not a long term viable strategy.

It´s´s barely keeping your numbers up in the short run.

Let´s just see what hating on America, hating on your fans, and taking a knee on the country does in the intermediate term, and the long run.

The players better get their concussion, head trauma, class action lawsuit in now, before the league...and all the money, is gone.

There. I think I deserve at least $1 or 2 million of Goodell´s pay for saying what he should have done an entire year ago!

President Donald Trump imposed steep tariffs on imported solar cells on Monday in response to a trade case brought by U.S. solar manufacturers charging that cheap imports, particularly from China, were harming domestic solar companies. The United States trade representative, Robert Lighthizer, announced that the president had decided to impose the tariffs, accepting the recommendation of the administration’s trade advisors. The United States International Trade Commission, an independent body of trade experts, had engaged in “an exhaustive process” to examine the charges filed by American businesses and concluded that U.S. producers had been “seriously injured” by imports. “The President’s action

Move over transgender kids, there is a new trend in town. Drag kids — kids dressed in full garb of their biologically opposite gender — are now joining the scene with transgender kids. The parents, guardians, and advocates of transgender or drag kids are not only supportive, but seem to be encouraging the child’s experience and publicity. There’s nothing politically correct about this new frontier; it’s abuse, merely distorted and cloaked in progressivism.

Democratic Senators believe amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants is the “civil rights issue of our time,” declared Sen. Dick Durbin, just before he voted January 22 to end the 2018 budget filibuster. Durbin’s promotion of illegal immigrants above African-Americans and other Americans spotlights the party’s decision that Americans’ deficits in wealth, job opportunities, and education are subordinate to the party’s strategy of allying with business to import foreign voters via the nation’s mass-immigration laws. Durbin spoke just before the vote began, saying: So many of you cast a vote that was very hard and very difficult because you believed — as I

This is a long developed plan. In order to carry out the entire reform operation, communication is made through public letters. Sunlight is part of the strategy. Questioning each other publicly and answering each other publicly is part of the strategy… the media is not used to this. Deception needs whispers. Deception doesn’t like transparency….

But White House counsel Don McGahn told Sessions the issue wasn´t worth losing Wray over, per Axios. The news of Wray´s warning follows the controversial dismissal of former FBI Director James Comey in May.

WASHINGTON — AMVETS officials are decrying “corporate censorship” from the National Football League for their decision not to run an ad in their Super Bowl program which responds to league players’ decision to kneel for the national anthem in protest of national equality issues. The ad, which would have cost the veterans organization $30,000, features the tag “#PleaseStand” with a picture of service members saluting the American flag and information on how to donate to the congressionally-chartered organization. Group leaders said NFL officials refused to include the ad in their Super Bowl publication, but did not issue a reason why.

Senate Democrats shut the government down in hopes of striking a deal to shield 700,000 young immigrants from deportation. In the end, they got a promise of a vote — one that Republicans argue was going to happen, anyway. Democrats lost the shutdown war. That much was obvious when they voted to re-open the government with little to show for it. They had vowed for weeks not to back any funding bill without a bipartisan agreement to protect so-called Dreamers. But as Washington entered day three of a government shutdown, Democrats folded, voting to reopen the government barely any closer to

Beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and their allies temporarily blocked a vehicle entrance to Disneyland on Monday, just as the Senate reached an agreement to end the government shutdown brought on in part by a stalemate over the young immigrants´ future. The DACA recipients, commonly called Dreamers, stood in a crosswalk at South Harbor Boulevard around 10 a.m. and blocked buses from entering the Anaheim theme park. The 15 protesters were quickly removed by law enforcement officers and were relocated to a sidewalk, where they held signs and chanted, "No dream! No deal!" By 10:40 a.m.,

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade. Yet they have amassed an extraordinary amount of

It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party. But listen to any number of Republicans and

Malia Obama, who is studying at Harvard University, has boyfriend! But some black people on Twitter have questioned her choice in men, because Malia´s new homey, Rory Farquharson, is white. (5 tweets) This racism on the part of some in the black community, who are bruddas and sistas to us all, is very sad. Most white people want us to grow together as a community. I just wish everyone of all races felt the same way. Questions for discussion: After years of Obama´s race baiting, President Trump is the first "post-racial" president to follow him. What do you think President Trump

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) questioned President Donald Trump’s new campaign ad saying Democrats “will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants” if they continued the shutdown. Ryan said, “They are certainly not helping us keep the government open. They are certainly not helping us get to a solution on immigration. When you shut down the government you stop negotiating on immigration reform. They’re complicity with not getting things done.” He added, “I’m not going to comment. I just saw that. I don’t know if that’s necessarily productive. It’s no

The Daily Caller journalist Chuck Ross has some extremely interesting information released today surrounding former top FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ/FBI liaison attorney Lisa Page which includes a disclosure by top FBI officials that text messages between Strzok and Page have gone missing. (Snip) According to information relayed to Senator Ron Johnson, the period of time the FBI has “lost” is from December 14th, 2016 to May 17th, 2017, the exact day that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was assigned to lead the Russia collusion probe. As CTH has previously outlined the same “small group” inside the DOJ and FBI,

Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey

Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump? Sure does seem like it. The other day, President Trump was discussing Russia at a press conference with the prime minister of Norway, when he suddenly announced that Clinton “was not for a strong military and Hillary, my opponent, was for windmills, and she was for other types of energy that don’t have the same capacities at this moment certainly.” Yeah, it didn’t make any sense. But he really can’t seem to get past her. Recently while promoting tax

Adam Schiff, reputedly a champion leaker from the House Intelligence Committee when it came to Russiagate material, suddenly thinks Ignorance is Bliss when it comes to the FISA warrant used to spy on the Trump campaign. Appearing on CNN, he tried to justify keep the 4 page memo that reportedly exposes the individuals who acted as part of a cabal to undermine the Trump campaign with help from NSA spying, and then pushed the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory as part of the “insurance policy.” Americans are too ignorant, you see. Do you think Democrats are starting to panic? (Video) Rush

WASHINGTON – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called the government shutdown a “manufactured crisis” created by Democrats who want a permanent Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) fix, which he referred to as a “non-emergency” issue that does not belong in the short-term spending bill to continue federal government operations. “The one non-emergency issue our friends on the other side of the aisle are trying to shoehorn into this discussion doesn’t reach that status of emergency until March. This is pure folly. The American people know so, that´s why in a recent survey a majority said keeping the government open

Calling the Trump administration’s tax reform plan a “middle-class tax increase,” two California lawmakers introduced a bill that would force large companies to fork over half of their expected savings to the state. Assemblymen Kevin McCarty and Phil Ting, both Democrats, introduced Assembly Constitutional Amendment 22, which calls for a 10 percent surcharge on companies with a net earnings over $1 million. The plan could potentially raise billions for the state´s social services programs. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals,” Ting said in a statement,

The Senate on Monday was set to hold a successful vote to reopen the federal government, after Senate Democrats agreed to let the bill through even though it doesn´t include immigration language they are seeking. "We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating a global agreement," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the floor. Under the bill up to be called up, the government would be fully funded through Feb. 8, and it would fund the Children´s Health Insurance Program for six years. It would also reopen the government, which has been partially closed since midnight

It’s billions of dollars over budget and seven years behind schedule, and appears to have no plausible way of living up to its goal of getting riders across the state in three hours or less. Welcome to what’s arguably the nation’s largest infrastructure project and California’s biggest boondoggle. The highly hyped bullet train has been a challenge from the start. No one thought it would be technically, financially and politically easy, but the way the project has been mishandled has some Californians fed up and demanding answers. Just this week, the California High-Speed Rail Authority, the organization charged with overseeing
