The sports world has responded to President Trumps criticisms of NFL players who protest against the national anthem. On Friday night, Trump gave a fiery speech in Huntsville, Alabama, while speaking at a rally for Republican Senate candidate Luther Strange. President Trump referred to NFL players who protest the anthem as as SOBs. He also said that it would be a winning public relations move if an NFL owner were to fire a player for such a protest.

By Saturday evening, the NFL Players Association, Commissioner Goodell, and the leadership of several different NFL franchises, had responded to Trump.

Jerry Jones said recently that if his players disrespect our flag they will be out of a job! So that’s one NFL owner who has a brain
The Dolphins of course. Squish the fish
I am an owner of the Green Bay Packers I applaud Pres Trumps statement.
Why do I get the sinking feeling the global leftists would love it if the NFL failed.
Billionaire owners standing up for millionaire athletes. Joe six-pak is the bully. Methinks the owners are scared of blacks.
They didn’t criticize Trump they are criticizing me and my nation. May the NFL go to hell and soon.
Several NFL Owners Condemn President Trumps Remarks on Players Who Protest the Anthem
Who cares about their opinions about the President’s warranted comments. . . they have shown front and center what they think of the United States of America and more importantly the many lives that have been lost to give them the right to be stupid.
The owners don’t really have a choice here. It’s astonishing to have the President of the United States — whose every public statement is covered by the national media and seen by his 39 million Twitter followers — stand up there and publicly castigate an entire industry like this. I don’t think I could even imagine such a thing as recently as a few years ago.
They no longer wish to be the football league of this nation.
Let them get some other taxpayers to pay for their stadiums.
The owners, the league, and the players’ union have had over a year to fix this. This started under Obama’s watch, well before Trump was Elected. They just hoped it would go away or that no one would care. They have way underestimated this one.
Many NFL owners are totally screwed up people.
Many global leftists in the administrative offices of their global corporations also love professional football. They’re still not the majority of fans, though.
The phrase in the Dolphin statement, “Start a conversation,” is Commie/Alinsky-speak for, “My view is the ONLY view, and you WILL submit.”
Isn’t it well past time to end the NFL’s exemption to anti-Trust Laws?
NFL player contracts are slavery...
I don’t think so, to them:
American Football is one of those ‘traditional institutions’ that has to be destroyed.
What better way to do that than to piss off the fans (typically Patriotic).
What better way to piss off the (patriotic) fans than by embedding non-patriotic behavior into the institution.
Let the Circus pay for the Stadia.
