Recent polls suggest the NFL is now viewed less favorably than MLB (LOL)... Viewership lost is now at record numbers, and Goodell is waving the surrender flag, the Donald wins another political war:
NFL Commish Tells Owners ‘We Believe That Everyone Should Stand’ For Anthem
In the wake of the ongoing imbroglio surrounding NFL players protesting during the playing of the national anthem — something that gained renewed steam this past weekend when Vice-President Mike Pence walked out of an Indianapolis Colts game due the players kneeling — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has informed NFL owners that the league believes players should stand.
With Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase already telling athletes that they have to stand, and President Donald Trump congratulating Jones for his statement, it was reported that owners are looking at implementing a league-wide policy. Goodell’s letter seems to confirm that an NFL rule surrounding the anthem will be forthcoming.
