Trump wins: NFL Commish Roger Goodell back tracks and now tells owners that players should stand

Discussion in 'The War Room' started by ripskater, Oct 10, 2017.

?

Now that the NFL backtracked on the anthem kneeling, will the fans return and viewership come back?

  1. No, not at all

    7.1%
  2. Some will come back, but the damage is done. The NFL made a mistake that it can never get back

    68.4%
  3. Yes, the NFL ratings will return to it's former glory

    24.5%

    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.”

    “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.”

    It looks like NFL viewership was continuing to go down, and the NFL gave in.

    At first the NFL had people say that Trump was dividing us. Now they admit that they were causing the division by choosing to kneel instead of uniting as a country.

    Where were you three weeks ago Goodell? Oh that's right, siding with the players.....until the ratings started coming in and advertisers started getting skittish. Nothing like $$$ to change your stance.

    Goodell claims he wants this to stop being the headline every week, but now if anybody continues to protest it's only going to intensify the coverage. Calculated move to maintain the increased discussion of the NFL among non-sports media.

    Oooooooh a beautiful attempt. It's a good thing you're used to not having facts to make an assertion. Makes it easier for you.

    Haven't voted for a dem my entire life. Just also not a sad partisan child.
