NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had a press conference yesterday and basically confirmed what he had alluded to the day before. The league will not enforce its own rules and require its players to stand for the national anthem. Goodell and the owners have caved in to the players and told the fans that their opinions don’t matter.
Instead Goodell has pledged to help rebellious players address their concerns which apparently include “police brutality” sentencing for drug offenses, and whatever else catches the fancy of the activists. In essence, the NFL has decided it is no longer a sports league providing entertainment for its fans, but a political action committee for some spoiled millionaires.
