Commissioner Cuck gets dizzy dodging National Football League anthem protest questions

19 October, 2017, 00:30 | Author: Carla Brady
  • Gov. Scott Walker said Monday national anthem protests should take a backseat to domestic abuse issues in the NFL. File

Goodell said the officials, players, and owners would likely meet again within the next two weeks.

"We did not ask for that", Goodell said. "We felt like there was real dialogue and conversation and thought it was positive".

NFL owners and players from around the league arranged to have a sitdown meeting in NY to address player protests and to determine the best course of action moving forward.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Wednesday morning to lash out at the National Football League's decision not to force players to stand for the national anthem, reacting to Goodell's announcement on Tuesday that the league would leave its current policy on the issue unchanged. He mentioned criminal justice reform, bail reform, and mandatory minimum sentences among the reasons why players knelt, but did not bring up police brutality.

"There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder", he said.




"We need to be above petty attacks from anybody, because racial and socioeconomic inequality has existed in this country for too long", York said. The owners and players discussed social issues during a meeting in NY later in the day.

Malcolm Jenkins of the Philadelphia Eagles said after the meeting that there was no talk of penalties against players who protested, according to the New York Times.

In contrast to Trump, who has scorned any player who protests as a "son of a bitch", Goodell praised the athletes as political activists trying to improve their communities. "They will state to you, and they have stated to everyone publicly, they are not doing this in any way to be disrespectful to the flag, but they also understand how it's being interpreted, and we're dealing with those underlying issues". He said, "Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem". Their commitment to addressing these issues is really admirable and something that I think our owners looked at as saying 'We want to help you support you.

More players have begun kneeling since Trump criticized the practice, and some sympathetic teammates have linked arms with the kneelers while standing themselves. "And those are our issues, national issues, American issues that are all important".

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell addressed the media Wednesday afternoon following the second day of NFL meetings.
