NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell
says players should stand for anthem

CBS Sports, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/18/2017 2:41:23 PM

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

Comments:
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?

Oooh, Feb 4, 2018 gonna be interesting!

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.

How stupid are they? Until someone (Goodell) starts kicking butt and taking names and starts handing out punishments, there will be no improvement in the NFL viewership and sponsorship.

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!

NFL steps into politics, fights tax cut
bill with no stadium bond breaks

The NFL has come out against House Republicans’ tax cut bill, putting the league out on a political limb even as it deals with the fallout from national anthem protests. Other big pro sports leagues are staying out of the fight, but a spokesman for the National Football League said teams don’t want to lose a special tax break that allows them to use tax-free bonds to build stadiums. The NFL says it deserves the break because new stadiums create jobs. “You can look around the country and see the economic development that’s generated from some of these stadiums,” Joe Lockhart, a former

Al Franken Should Resign Immediately

On Thursday morning, Los Angeles radio host Leeann Tweeden wrote a disturbing article alleging that Sen. Al Franken sexually harassed her on a 2006 USO tour. According to Tweeden, Franken coerced her into “rehearsing” a kiss for a skit, then forcefully stuck his tongue in her mouth. She also provided a photograph of Franken appearing to grope her while she slept. There is no rational reason to doubt the truth of Tweeden’s accusations, no legitimate defense of Franken’s actions, and no ambiguity here at all: Franken should resign from the Senate immediately. Democrats should call for him to step down

The terror-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations and the city of New York have teamed to launch a far-Left “social justice” project called “AMPLIFY” (Advancing the Front Lines of Social Justice), hoping to promote awareness for the fringe issues that motivate the leftist-Islamist alliance.

A new book out by Guardian journalist Luke Harding provides previously unknown details about the Trump dossier and its author, former British spy Christopher Steele. (Snip) Harding reported that he was contacted by a member of the Clinton campaign who laid out allegations that Trump had used prostitutes in Moscow. Steele’s June 20, 2016 dossier memo makes similar unverified claims. The outreach establishes for the first time that someone on the Clinton campaign attempted to peddle unfounded rumors about Trump to the press. Harding did not identify the campaign official. He wrote: “In October an email written by a person

When Tweeden returned from the tour, she noticed a photo from the tour where Franken has his hands on her breasts and is smiling into the camera. “You knew exactly what you were doing.

Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be “such an abuse of power” by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state. President Trump and other Republicans allege ties between donations to the Clinton Foundation and the company sale, even though

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told attendees at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday that if Judge Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate race in December, he will face a Senate ethics committee investigation. McConnell argued, “I think it’s safe to say that if he were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee. He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath as well, and it would be a rather unusual beginning.” The Washington Post released an article last week that alleged that Moore engaged in sexual

The allegations by five women that Roy Moore pursued and sexually molested teenage girls while he was in his 30s are disgusting, and disqualify him to serve in the United States Senate. Conservatives should be outraged at Moore for his loathsome conduct. But they should also be outraged at the man who helped put Moore on the ballot and is in the process of destroying the Trump presidency: Stephen K. Bannon. If the man Trump supported in the primary, Sen. Luther Strange, were the Republican nominee today, the GOP would be cruising to an easy victory in the Dec. 12 special

NBC host Megyn Kelly said President Trump is being hypocritical for condemning Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., for sexually harassing and assaulting a woman. "Who that has been accused of sexual assault would have the gall to preach to others about sexual misconduct. How infuriating that would be. How tone deaf, Mr. President," Kelly said on NBC´s "Today" show Friday morning. Trump had tweeted Thursday night that Franken should not be advocating for respect of women. "And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women. Lesley Stahl tape?" Trump

WASHINGTON — Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Democrat of New York, who holds Hillary Clinton’s former seat, said on Thursday that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency after his inappropriate relationship with an intern came to light nearly 20 years ago. Asked directly if she believed Mr. Clinton should have stepped down at the time, Ms. Gillibrand took a long pause and said, “Yes, I think that is the appropriate response.” But she also appeared to signal that what is currently considered a fireable offense may have been more often overlooked during the Clinton era. “Things have changed today, and I think under those

He added that "Senator Menendez was indicted on numerous federal felonies. He is one of only twelve U.S. senators to have been indicted in our history." Menendez´s bribery and corruption trial ended with the judge declaring a mistrial on Thursday after jurors

Multiple NFL owners have engaged in discussions about removing Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones from the league. (Snip) The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday the following: The tension has grown so severe that the topic of removing Jones has been discussed by at least some owners, according to three people familiar with the matter. That type of drastic action would require the league showing conduct detrimental to the league—which is exactly the language the league used in its Nov. 15 letter to Jones’s attorney, David Boies. That letter was shared with all of the league’s 32 owners. It was

Former President George H.W. Bush is facing new allegations from a Michigan woman who said he touched her inappropriately while he was in office at an event in April 1992. The woman, now 55, spoke exclusively with CNN and said she was attending a fundraiser for Bush´s re-election campaign in Dearborn, Michigan, with her father when the president grabbed her rear end during a photo-op. "We got closer together for a family photo and it was like ´Holy crap!´" she said, describing the moment Bush touched her buttocks. "It was like a gentle squeeze."
