BOOM! POTUS Trump solves the NFL ‘kneeling controversy’ in ONE tweet

(National SentinelBold: On Thursday the cowards who run the NFL announced the suspension of a new rule that would have prohibited players from showing disrespect to the American flag (and the country) on the sidelines during the playing of the National Anthem.

In addition, the rule would have provided at least some level of punishment for players who violated it, including fines.

But the rule also gave players the option of remaining in the locker room during the playing of the Anthem.

The point was, the league was responding to the loss of millions of fans and tens of millions of dollars in merchandise and other league-related sales in 2017 because players from nearly every team sought to use the playing of the Anthem as a means of protesting against alleged injustices against blacks.

As we reported on Thursday:

In the off-season, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the majority of team owners came to an agreement on a new policy that forbade players from using sideline antics as a form of political protest during games.

But now, all that’s on hold, thanks to the same kind of weak-spined management that allowed protests to continue throughout last season.

The league put out a statement that says, in part, “The NFL and NFLPA reflect the great values of America, which are repeatedly demonstrated by the many players doing extraordinary work in communities across our country to promote equality, fairness and justice.”

We’re not sure which group contains the most idiots — the owners and NFL management or the players themselves, both of whom seem hell-benton destroying the very league that provides them with a fabulous living.


Perhaps both are just as ignorant — and tone-deaf.

Well, POTUS Donald Trump — who wasn’t afraid to wade into the ‘controversy’ over kneeling NFL players last year — is still not afraid to do so.

And in fact, the former owner of the USFL’s New Jersey Generals gave the well-paid NFL boss some bold advice about how to handle the BS political protesting during games:

“The NFL National Anthem Debate is alive and well again – can’t believe it! Isn’t it in contract that players must stand at attention, hand on heart? The $40,000,000 Commissioner must now make a stand. First time kneeling, out for game. Second time kneeling, out for season/no pay!” POTUS wrote.

Bold and decisive. Spot-on. Gets to the heart of the issue with the NFL’s fan base.

Which is why the cowards running the NFL will ignore it and continue to shed viewers and profits.

  1. Since when do employees get to destroy their employer? Does their right to protest include the right to diminish the brand built up over decades of good will and entertainment? Since these players seem to believe that their protests are more important then the NFL’s right to control and enhance their product I would think they should be fired or suspended until they agree to NOT cause their employer to lose millions and millions to support their personal quest for this or that.

    Once fired they can go march with BLM to ;publicly show where they stand. Bet the percentage of players willing to give up their careers would be pretty small. It is a stunt to virtue signal at the NFL”s expense.

    It is going to be fun to watch the NFL negotiations next year. The players will want more and the owners will say “sales are down because of the protests and you will have to take a cut.” and the players will go on strike.
    The NFL will really crash and burn when that happens.

  3. GOOD FOR TRUMP. HE IS SPOT ON, AS USUAL. WHO GIVES A S**T WHAT THE POLITICAL BELIEFS OF THESE OVERPAID PROFESSONAL ATHLETES ARE ANYWAY. THAT’S NOT WHAT WE PAY OUR HARD EARNED MONEY TO SEE.
    NOW IF TRUMP WOULD JUST MAKE A SIMILAR TWEET ABOUT THE RIDICULOUS, CHILDISH DANCES THE NFL ALLOWS IN THE END ZONE AFTER A TOUCHDOWN. MY GOD! THEY LOOK LIKE LITTLE GIRLS OUT THERE MAKING A BIG DEAL OUT OF WHAT THEY ARE BEING PAID TO DO. IF THEY ONLY KNEW HOW CHILDISH THEY REALLY LOOK. AND RUSHING UP TO THE TV CAMERA, FOLDING THEIR ARMS ACROSS THEIR CHEST, AND PRETENDING TO BE THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD, AND “AREN’T I GREATEST” ATTITUDE MAKES ME WANT TO PUKE. THESE STUPID ANTICS ARE THINGS YOU WILL NEVER SEE A PATRIOT TEAM DO, CAUSE BILL ABSOLUTELY WON’T PERMIT IT. GRONK SPIKING THE BALL IS THE MOST DEMONSTRATION I THINK YOU WILL EVER SEE. NOW IF BILL CAN JUST GET THE PLAYERS TO STAND DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, I WILL BE HAPPY.

    Nobody has mentioned (yet) that President Trump (I smile) offered to review cases FROM the NFL players that might address the very reason they kneel: imprisoned people (black) that don’t deserve it. Feedback from the NFL Player’s groups: ***CRICKETS*** Not ONE article, news feed nor wire article has had a single name suggested for President Trump (I’m still smiling) to “pardon” from prison due to improper legal procedures. Period.

  5. This was always a simple issue to fix.

    It’s pretty obvious that most within the NFL are more interested in perpetuating an illusion of massive inequity rather than working to resolve the small amount that may exist. When the league inevitably implodes from this nonsense, the same bad actors will blame that on racism and inequity as well.

    Life is short. Take your Sundays back from these spoiled millionaires and enjoy them again.

  6. Goodell is truly the $40 million weenie. If this moron had just one ounce of balls he would have settled this two years ago when Krapernik first started his misguided antics. Now, the ‘not too bright’ players are all of a sudden upset that they can’t perform their unpatriotic bullcrap on the field of play during the playing of the National Anthem. Good, play your silly games Goodell, owners, and low IQ players. As you fiddle your audience is busy looking for other entertainment. Pack of fools!
