PC crap, here is NFL’s new ad on unity — I suppose that is the message. But you figure out what “inside these lines” means….or is supposed to mean.
So game day turned to P/C day.
Steelers announced they would stay in the locker room for the National Anthem.
All but one of the Steelers stayed in the locker room for the opening. (*later revealed they were in the shadows of the stadium.)
Hey, Steelers, I got a real protest for you:
Just stay in the locker room ….if you really want to protest.
Sit out the game. Stay off of the field …show us you can really protest.
All these teams protesting now. What’s next, eliminate the National Anthem… maybe flag burning? The Anthem could be too divisive, so just eliminate it. Is that where this is going?
You want to protest, cancel the game. See how that goes.
Roger Goodell called Trump’s remarks about flag and National Anthem protests “divisive”.
Goodell issued a statement Saturday
The following statement is in response to President Donald Trump’s comments last night…
STATEMENT FROM NFL COMMISSIONER ROGER GOODELL
The NFL and our players are at our best when we help create a sense of unity in our country and our culture. There is no better example than the amazing response from our clubs and players to the terrible natural disasters we’ve experienced over the last month. Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities.
Roger, what is divisive is this protest crap taking part of opening ceremonies, now that is divisive. Lack of respect for the NFL? You deserve respect? Seriously, the irony of that.
This is not football day, this is National Protest Day.
Call it what it is….but football has absolutely nothing to do with it. So why there?
It is only another public opportunity for glorified protest.
But don’t blame President Trump or our NFL Boycott then.
But don’t, don’t demonize and condemn our protest of you.
“Get your protest here….get ’em while they’re hot!”
National Protest America Day, fireworks to follow.
