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!

Country music singer Neal McCoy takes a jab at former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and others who protested the national anthem by taking a knee in his newest single he debuted last week. The song, “Take a Knee, My Ass (I Won’t Take a Knee),” was performed in front of a small audience on Oct. 8th and shared online as a Facebook Live video, which has since gone viral.

After repeated unsuccessful campaigns for Congress and for Ohio´s Supreme Court, the Democrat shocked everyone when he won his current seat in 2012. He knocked off a Republican incumbent despite promising to take no campaign contributions, in part thanks to backlash against a scorched-earth Republican campaign ad against him, accusing him of expressing sympathy for rapists. Speaking of which, O´Neill is in the news again today for his um...unorthodox response to the current controversy over alleged sexual harassment or assault by Minnesota Sen.

One year after losing the presidential race, 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is still questioning the “legitimacy” of President Trump’s victory, accusing Republicans of voter suppression tactics in swing states and Russians of influencing votes through a “disinformation campaign.” “I think that there are lots of questions about its legitimacy,” Clinton said of the election during a video interview posted online Friday by the liberal Mother Jones website. Clinton lamented how “we don’t have a method for contesting” the election in the United States and called for an independent commission to “get to the bottom of what happened.” She suggested that she

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

Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) admonished Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) for accusing Republicans of writing the tax bill "for the rich" at a late night hearing on amendments and markups. "With all due respect, I get sick and tired of the rich getting richer," Brown said in a diatribe against Republicans. "I come from the poor people, and I have been here working my whole stinkin´ career for people who don´t have a chance, and I really resent anybody that says I´m doing it for the rich. Give me a break. I think you guys

LaVar Ball, whose son was one of the three UCLA basketball players detained in China for shoplifting last week, said "who?" when asked about President Trump´s role in getting the players released. "Who?" Ball told ESPN when asked about Trump´s role. "What was he over there for? Don´t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.” (Snip) Like I told him, 'They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes.' I'm from L.A. I've seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses."

The father of one of the UCLA basketball players arrested on suspicion of shoplifting while on tour in China isn´t praising President Donald Trump for his involvement in their release. When asked by ESPN what role the president played in brokering his son´s freedom, LaVar Ball — a former basketball player himself and star on the Facebook reality series "Ball in the Family" — responded with his own questions. "Who? What was he over there for? Don´t tell me nothing," Ball said. "Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out." Ball in EPSN´s report on Saturday also downplayed

What a disgusting cesspool of self-serving corruption is the nation’s capital and no better example of that can be found today than Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell who, according to longtime political activist, Ned Ryun, was a primary source of the anti-Roy Moore stories that are now attempting to sway the upcoming Alabama special election and help clear the path for a Trump impeachment attempt in 2018.“…I strongly suspect it’s a very short list of people, all who are associated with Mitch McConnell – whether it’s Josh Holmes, whether it’s Karl Rove, might even be Steven Law – I don’t

Once upon a time, Hillary Clinton thought the prospect of a presidential candidate declining to pledge to absolutely accept the sanctity of certified election results was "horrifying." She said so in a general election debate in order to attack Donald Trump -- who, at the time, was (recklessly) leaving the door open to challenge the outcome of an election most people expected him to lose. Chief among these people was Hillary Clinton. That´s why she excoriated his dodging and noncommittal answers on the question as dangerous to American democracy. (Snip for video)[Clinton] said she found “horrifying” the intimation he would

While editing ‘Vanity Fair’ in the ’80s and ’90s, Daily Beast founder Tina Brown confided some of her best dish to her now published diary, including this gem about Jackie Kennedy. Thursday, July 6, 1989 Quogue- I love how New York changes so completely in the summer. It’s my favorite time of year here, sitting at my wooden desk before the open window with the cool sea breeze. The August issue arrived by FedEx. The Jackie O cover story, and Michael Milken’s rise and fall by Marie, is a much more commercial combo than July. To generate some summer heat I assigned Ed Klein to do Jackie to mark her sixtieth birthday. I asked him because he was always going on about how she liked him when he edited The New York Times Magazine.

Mark Osborne writes at ABC News that Republican Senator Jeff Flake was caught on a hot mic criticizing President Donald Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore: Sen. Jeff Flake, a frequent sparring partner of President Donald Trump, continues to make enemies in his own party after calling the GOP “toast” while unaware he was still on a live mic. Flake, R-Ariz., was at a tax reform event in Mesa, Arizona on Friday night when he was caught bashing the president in a conversation with friend, Mesa Mayor John Giles. “If we become the party of Roy Moore and Donald

A Democratic congresswoman says she was sexually assaulted by a “prominent, historical” senator in the 1980s — and “everyone on Capitol Hill knew” that he was a harasser. “Historical figure, hand kept going up the leg, I took it off. A women member was at the table, recognized what was happening, and said, ‘switch places,´” Michigan Rep. Debbie Dingell told CNN. (Snip) Dingell said it happened in her first year of marriage to Rep. John Dingell, whom she wed in 1981. But despite the 36-year time gap, Dingell said she’s still afraid to name the prominent perv.

In a textbook example of why Facebook users should pause for a moment of reflection before they post, a Democratic candidate for Ohio governor sought Friday to get ahead of any potential sex scandals by announcing the details of his relationships with 50 women. The sexcapade diary was in response to the Al Franken scandal, and included a hayloft romp with a "gorgeous blonde" and a fling with a "red head from Cleveland." “Now that the dogs of war are calling for the head of Senator Al Franken I believe it is time to speak up on behalf of all heterosexual males,”

Former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown asked for leniency from a federal judge in Florida on Friday. She faces a lengthy prison term after being convicted of stealing thousands of dollars that were meant to go to charity. In May, a jury convicted Brown of 18 felony counts, including filing false tax returns, mail fraud, and working with others to run a fake non-profit group. Her conviction represents a major fall from political grace. Brown was one of the first black elected officials to be elected to federal office in Florida in 1992. She represented the Jacksonville, Florida area in the

Gov. Chris Christie refrained from saying "I told you so" when he introduced Ivanka Trump at an appearance in Bayville earlier this week. But he had every right to, especially when it comes to the recent developments concerning his old rival Jeff Sessions. During the presidential campaign last year, the governor of New Jersey and the then-Senator from Alabama were among the first prominent Republicans to come out for Donald Trump. At one point in that campaign, Trump said Christie would make "a great attorney general" in the event he won the election. Trump went on to win, but Christie lost

More than two dozen investigators have spent weeks scouring wine country trying to solve the mystery at the heart of the most destructive wildfires in California history: What caused the infernos that killed 43 people and destroyed more than 8,000 buildings? The answers will have wide-ranging ramifications for the region, which faces staggering losses and a challenging rebuilding effort. Losses from insured properties alone are expected to far exceed $1 billion, and the total bill for the fires will be still higher. Just fighting the fires cost $189 million, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Cal Fire is

In the longstanding liberal narrative about Bill Clinton and his scandals, the one pushed by Clinton courtiers and ratified in media coverage of his post-presidency, our 42nd president was only guilty of being a horndog, his affairs were nobody’s business but his family’s, and oral sex with Monica Lewinsky was a small thing that should never have put his presidency in peril. That narrative could not survive the current wave of outrage over male sexual misconduct. So now a new one may be forming for the age of Harvey Weinstein and Donald Trump. In this story, Kenneth Starr and the
