Roger Goodell is feeling the pressure so he sent a demand letter to all 32 teams in the league. Their owners were the recipients and it was clearly about the ongoing protests in the NFL during the national anthem.
In the letter, which Schefter shared on his Facebook page, Goodell wrote that the “current dispute over the National Anthem is threatening to erode the unifying power of our game, and is now dividing us, and our players, from many fans across the country.”
Colin Kaepernick started this whole fiasco after he started dating Black Lives Matter advocate. He was basically brainwashed and believes America is racist. Despite his millions of dollars and being adopted by white people, it’s racist.
Racial injustice is clearly a lie and seeing millionaires that are black say that there is racial injustice is just laughable. Then they disrespect the flag and it makes people hate them and hate the NFL.
Goodell tried to say that he wasn’t going to do anything about this, but he was trying to be a good guy because he’s been a bad guy for so long in that league. The demand letter will piss off his employees.
Goodell would like players to stand, but the national anthem is not mentioned in the NFL rulebook. However, players “should” stand for the anthem, according to the league’s game operation manual.
“Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem,” Goodell wrote. “It is an important moment in our game,” Goodell wrote. “We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us. We also care deeply about our players and respect their opinions and concerns about critical social issues. The controversy over the Anthem is a barrier to having honest conversations and making real progress on the underlying issues. We need to move past this controversy, and we want to do that together with our players.”
The letter notes that during NFL committee meetings in September, the league heard from players about issues that are essential to them, and the league met with NFL Players Association leaders last week.
