Al Michaels Says Trump Partially to Blame for NFLís Troubles
Legal Insurrection ^ | 11-21-2017 | Kemberlee Kaye

NBC sports announcer Al Michaels blamed Trump stoking tensions in the “take a knee” nonsense plaguing the NFL.

In an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Michaels said he believed the kneeling controversy was simmering down until Trump weighed in, “once the president made those remarks in Alabama, at that particular point it was like throwing a match into a gas tank.”

I wish I could take credit for giving them trouble.

That’s like saying Charlie Rose’s accusers are to blame for his career troubles.

Simmering down? Nonsense. Blame Kaperpunk and Goodell, not the president.

So those of us that were telling the NFL to take a hike 9 months before Trump brought this up at a campaign rally were being led by the nose by events that had not yet occurred.

He is living in the leftists’ heads, rent free.

Their true colors were revealed. Thank you Mr. President.

Michaels is rumored to be a Republican, too. I’m guessing he is more of a Never Trumper.

Nah, he’s just trying to keep his gig. Face it, he hit his pinnacle when the only major sports miracle just happened when he was behind the microphone.

I’m so dang sick of nobody who is mature enough to say the truth.
Never ever ever ANY accountability for ones own actions.
And kma michael’s and take your smart ‘tude with you.

Why would MAGA Nation want it to "simmer down," Al? We want to EXPOSE and DEFEAT America's enemies. That's exactly what our President did -- and continues to do by taking on the hood rat Lynch, NBA swine and dad-of-the-year Ball. #WINNING

But we’ve learned something. The next time a bunch of blacks riot, find a band and start playing the National Anthem. Reflexively, they’ll sit down and shut up.

I used to live in Garden City.

They had some pretty good athletes come through that Community College. Most of them were guys who didn’t have the GPA to get into a major university.

I’m still convinced it was rigged, considering the politics swirling around at the time.

Why does Al Michaels think for a second anyone is interested in his political opinion?

I thought he was smart enough to know being neutral on politics is what we want from sportscasters.

I guess maybe he wants to say it’s because of him the NFL is tanking.

Me, me, me. Another one.

No matter what actions a Black man takes; it is ALWAYS someone else’s fault.
