Giants owners blast Trump for ‘offensive
and divisive’ comments

New York Post, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/24/2017 7:04:47 AM

Giants owners John Mara and Steve Tisch had a harsh reaction to President Trump’s called for NFL owners to fire players who refuse to stand for the national anthem. “Comments like we heard last night from the president are inappropriate, offensive and divisive,” Mara and Tisch said in a statement Saturday. “We are proud of our players, the vast majority of whom use their NFL platform to make a positive difference in our society.” Trump initially addressed the issue during a campaign rally speech in Alabama for Senator Luther Strange, asserting that owners should fire “any son of a b—h”

I have no use for these men. If they were real patriotic men they would demand their players show respect. I hope the giants lise every forthcoming game.... and I hope people boycott every team but Dallas. Their owner won´t tolerate this activity. Bravo Jerry Jones.

The players made their political statement, the owners theirs, and Trump his, all of whom have the right to say what they wish and the responsibility to accept the consequences, if any. I happen to agree with Trump although question the wisdom of his getting embroiled in this contretemps.

On the other hand I do think it underscores his patriotism and am disgusted that our president should be criticized for expressing it. The critics will regret it.

I BLAST Mara and Toosh for being UNAMERICAN while using the taxpayers to provide them with a place of business. I´ve been watching the NFL since I was 10 (60+ years ago)Charley Conerly, Kyle Rote, Frank Gifford (although my fave was Detroit´s Doak Walker).

I NO LONGER watch every game that is shown and if there is ONE moment of anti American BS, off it goes and that gets easier to do, every day.

Let´s take a look at just who is being divisive. Maybe it´s the guy with the Brillo hair, who wore socks depicting cops as pigs and who has the Commie girl friend who led him down this path in the first place. Now that politics has been inserted into the game, and unless owners take a stand against this crap, it´s curtains for the NFL. Remember the Falcons coach who said what NFL stood for. He said "Not For Long"!

Buyers beware. Today the NFL teams are a bad investment. After Trumps speech, Roger Goodell´s crappy come back and now the Giant´s owner, I soon suspect that the teams will be selling at the junk price very soon. The fans had enough, we have respect for our military and the flag, not these two bit thugs on the football field. Sponsors will drop them like a hot potato. Watch. This is the tip of the iceberg.

I am a YUGE college football fan but I detest the NFL and have for a very long time. Why? Because they have a despicable culture and are a terrible influence on our youth.

This "kneeling protest" is clearly an Alinsky Agitation but I keep wondering what is the end game. Obviously the continuation of racially dividing America is one, but is getting rid of what is quintessentially American-football-another? They have long been trying to do this by pushing soccer. I have my suspicions.

They will rue the day.

And once again, the Left, up to their usual schemes as D´nesh speaks of, is using those for their own ends which ALWAYS ends up hurting the very ones they claim they want to help.

No. The behavior of these athletes is offensive and divisive. And the fact that the owners are too intimidated to put a stop to it is even more so. High time that these overrated, overpaid and ungrateful dopes were knocked off their pedestals.

The NBA and NFL are now gang groups. We don´t watch any of them and continue NOT to watch. If people start not going to the games, not buying their overpriced products and boycott their advertisers, they will begin to notice the message. Money talks. The fans are the ones ultimately paying their obscene salaries. Free speech? Yes, just not on your employer´s time.

I must have missed it when the Giants owners were upset at Kaepernick wearing socks that depicted cops as pigs and pictures of Fidel Castro. I guess that isn´t as divisive as Trump saying players should stand during the anthem.

Patriotism and respect for the Flag and the National Anthem are as American as apple pie, Football, Baseball, Basketball Horse Racing, Auto Racing, morals, scruples, hard work, productivity and generosity.

There was never any need to "fundamentally transform" America except to weaken her by pulling her away from these ideals!

Fly-over America and President Trump understand this. Leftist and the Elites don´t!

The owners and commissioner are beating the tin pans as hard as possible because they don´t want to concede that a) they pay the players´ wages and control their contracts and b) the players are the only people they have control over.

I grew up in NYC.

Because of these unAmerican jerks disrespecting the flag of our ancestors, I have (literally) this morning thrown away my Giants memorabilia. It was fun. It´s over. I´m moving on.

No more NFL for me until those who would disrespect our flag are fired.

This country can have the politics of personal identity and go the way of the Balkans. Or we can all be patriots, as imperfect as America is, and thrive another 237 years.

Can´t have it both ways.

An example of NFL owners who object to President Trump bringing to a head the fact the some of their employees, professional football players, have been publically disrespecting the National Anthem, the American flag, and the country, while they are being paid big money by those team owners. The reason for that is to keep from losing a lot of money those owners will soon have to get off their butts and make a business decision.

Why don´t these media types just quote Trump instead of putting it in their own words? It was not a long quote. “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a "B" off the field right now. Out! He’s fired. He’s fired,” Trump didn´t TELL the owners to fire anyone. It was a hypothetical. Nevertheless, no one in the media is reporting it that way.

The fewer the fans the less the income for the NFL and owners, and player pay will go down. The fewer the fans the less they can charge for advertising. The fewer the fans the bigger the loss for the networks that have made huge long-term contracts for TV rights. It´s all down hill from here. And, the protests are turning off way more people than those who endorse them. It´s failure all around.

Josh Solomon and Alison Spann report in The Hill: Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted “half-baked, spurious nationalism” in the United States in an emotional speech Monday night after receiving the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal. “To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ´the last best hope of earth´ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of

Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so. "I´m a middle-class girl from the middle of the country, and so I always struggled with like, OK, so what´s my story. And it suddenly dawned on me that

New York activist Tamika Mallory says she was booted from an American Airlines flight in Miami after a pilot inserted himself into a dispute over her seat assignment. Mallory, a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington, was traveling home to New York when the pilot followed her to scold her over an argument she had with a gate agent. He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. “It definitely was white male aggression. I was singled out, I was disrespected, and he was trying to intimidate me. I was

Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to

If the NFL thought Americans would ease the backlash against the league — they were sadly mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred. (Photo) Breitbart News reports: Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn’t buy tickets for those games. (Photos/Tweet) Here’s a shot of the Jaguars stadium at kickoff: (Tweet) Photos of empty

Sen. John McCain warned against the US turning toward ´half-baked, spurious nationalism´ and jabbed at unnamed pushers of isolationist politics while at an event honoring the war hero´s contributions.

Sure, it´s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there´s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president. And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again. Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of "if/then" scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton. Here´s how constitutional law expert Lessig lays it out: If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or

Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement for collusion against NFL team owners, reports Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report. Kaepernick has hired high-profile attorney Mark Geragos and is preparing to release a statement about his grievance soon, added Freeman. The free-agent quarterback has remained unemployed since his release by the San Francisco 49ers in March and has garnered little interest from teams around the league. This has caused some to suggest he´s being blackballed for his national anthem protests during the 2016 season. Kaepernick appeared in 12 games for 49ers in 2016, throwing for 2,241 yards with

The Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com it will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from Harvey Weinstein, saying on Sunday the money had already been spent on the organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes. The foundation’s decision comes as politicians and philanthropic groups grapple with whether to return donations they have received from Weinstein, after numerous women stepped forward this month to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assault, harassment and rape. Over a dozen Democratic politicians have said they will give back or donate Weinstein’s campaign contributions to charity. The Clinton Foundation faced questions about Weinstein’s funding after Hillary Clinton
