Protests backfired on NFL owners, Roger Goodell — Tim Benz

Protests backfired on NFL owners, Roger Goodell — Tim Benz

It would be ridiculous to suggest otherwise. "The confederate flag. That's what should piss him off. That's basically waving a picture of your ex around".

Trump - while holding a joint news conference with Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy - also reiterated his belief that it is "very important" that the NFL should not allow people to kneel during the National Anthem, calling it "disgraceful".

Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, James Corden and Jimmy Fallon had some thoughts on the subject. None of the Giants had protested during the national anthem until the president took aim at them just as this issue was fading to the margins. So, a great number of those who love America and football are being thoroughly alienated by these protests.

Throughout the day, teams protested. Trump called out a proud and competitive group of players in the harshest of terms.

Some criticism has come from the NFL itself as NFL executives, according to American media, have a lot of angst towards Kaepernick.

There were loud discussions in some locker rooms before teams arrived at a consensus about what to do. "It demonstrates all of the beautiful things about culture and all of the beautiful things about bringing people together from different backgrounds and all and rallying for common goals". Not at all. I have plenty of time on my hands.

Kraft said: “I am deeply disappointed by the tone of the comments made by the President on Friday.

So did the President simply Twitter-troll the entire NFL to curry favor with his supporters. and win? Nobody is trying to disrespect the flag or the military. Three CNN journalists belonging to its investigative unit were forced to leave the company as a result.

"Many people have died and they were fighting for our country, they were fighting for our flag, they were fighting for our national anthem".

So it's no surprise that Trump, who has former members of the military in his presidential cabinet and wants to increase military spending, is siding with the military on this issue.

"For people to disrespect that by kneeling during the playing of our national anthem I think is disgraceful", he concluded. He has shown, since the beginning, his dehumanised nature. I believe some of it was - specifically, calling the players "sons of b--". He acts like a child craving attention and any attention will do.

As for Sessions, Trump again said the attorney general should not have recused himself in the Russia investigation.

He also said booing at the Dallas game on Monday night when the team dropped to its knees was the "loudest I have ever heard".

Trump appears to be an unstable, reptilian character completely unsuited to any office of responsibility. No NFL team has signed Kaepernick for this season.

"For a week, they'll be the most popular person in this country", Trump griped about players kneeling during the national anthem.

Is that a sad commentary on how much emphasis we put on sports as opposed to international relations? "To me, this is bigger than football".

While he unequivocally trashed Black athletes who protest the anthem, Trump hesitated to disavow white supremacists like David Duke, who publicly supported his campaign for president.

"I don't think Trump realizes how dangerous the symptoms of these concussions are", the comedian quipped. His standing in poll after poll is atrocious. He has yet to make good on a single significant legislative goal. If the NFL is a harbinger, he will soon unite the country in revulsion towards him. On Saturday, Bruce Maxwell, a catcher for the Oakland Athletics who was born in Wiesbaden in western Germany, became the first player in Major League Baseball to take a knee during the national anthem.
