Roger Goodell to NFL teams: ‘We believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem.’ Look’s like Tom Petty’s song “I Won’t Back Down” is no longer Roger’s favorite song. Trump should be gloating on Twitter any minute now. #Winning

I used to live for NFL football once late summer rolled around but between a watered down league and stupid garbage like this from idiots like Goodell, my interest dies a little more every week. He’s just twisting the knife into a product that’s already been stabbed fifty times and he’s too stupid to realize it.

He’s driven the league into oblivion during his tenure and if the owners are stupid enough to keep him around once his contract expires then they’re as stupid as he is and deserve what they get or don’t get.

This wishy-washy dickhead could die in a fire and I wouldn’t shed a single tear.

He should be feeling it in the ass.
He’s a big puss.

This shit wouldn’t be happening if Condi was the commissioner. Just saying.

Don’t think Condi would stoop low enough to take the job to begin with, do you? 😉

But yeah, if that were the case she’d have sent a couple Marines in to each game to bring these malingering d-bags to attention!

Revenue is trending downward. React!
I don’t believe for a second that he will be able to enforce this.
Supply and demand will eventually settle this mess for him.

Roger couldn’t find his rear end if both bands tied behind his back.He thought he ran the National Football League. The fans are the ones he’s responsible to, not the owners.

Yeah, I don’t think this pencil-necked suit’s mealy-mouthed vagueness is going to solve a thing. He’s the most useless CEO I’ve ever seen. Absolutely clueless. He’s an east-coast liberal running a Midwestern game and never has grasped the essential manliness of the sport he’s trying to run. Because he doesn’t share that manliness.

The time for solving this was last year when Kaepernick made an issue of it. A real CEO would have told him then, “You can talk about social issues all you want and protest all you want, but the game belongs to the NFL, not you, and it’s a business. Do it one more time and you’re suspended.” Simple as that.

And I can’t stop mentioning Brady in this context. Goodell suspended Tom Brady last year for four games, the icon of the sport, the clean-cut non-criminal hard-working best player in the league, for a chimera of a crime, something that never happened, but which Goodell and his geeks in the NFL office were too stupid to understand the physics of. And when federal judges TOLD him he was wrong, that he was acting like an ignorant butthead, he appealed the case and won the right to suspend Brady anyway, just to demonstrate his authority over the game. This is a deeply stupid, thoroughly non-football man.

What a putz. Only after the league is hit in the cash register do they decide “oopsie!”

Ratings are down, I believe some sponsors are pulling their money so all this smarmy MFer is doing is damage control now that he’s figured out how unpopular that kneeling garbage was.

Goodell says he’ll unveil his plan for dealing with the anthem problem at the League meeting next week; I hope the owners respond by firing him.
