This anti-Trump rant could land one NFL owner in deep trouble

Earlier this week Renewed Right reported on Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan, who called President Trump a “great divider.”

The team’s President of operations was forced to issue a statement apologizing to local military members for the team’s recent actions which launched league-wide national anthem protests.

But Khan is doubling down in a new anti-Trump tirade.

Despite being somewhat of a laughingstock nationally, loyal Jags fans have put up with a consistent NFL bottom-dweller. But now, even as they’re considered one of the surprise teams this season, attendance is falling off the map!



For their latest home game against the Los Angeles Rams, the Jaguars announced they had the lowest attendance since Khan purchased the team in 2011.

This is far from an isolated incident as TV ratings for NFL games are down across the board.

One (former) Jags fan even put up his own money to fly a banner before the last game, saying “Be American. Boycott the Jags & the NFL.”

But Khan doesn’t seem to have learned his lesson.

First Coast News reports:

Shad Khan thinks he knows the real reason Donald Trump is so obsessed with how the NFL does business.

“This is a very personal issue with him,” Khan, the Jacksonville Jaguars owner, told USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday as NFL owners wrapped up two days of meetings in Lower Manhattan.

Trump, whose bid to buy the Buffalo Bills in 2014 failed, slammed one of his favorite punching bags again Wednesday, tweeting that the NFL is demonstrating “total disrespect” for the nation because it is not forcing players to stand for the national anthem.

“He’s been elected President, where maybe a great goal he had in life to own an NFL team is not very likely,” said Khan, who bought the Jags in 2011 for $760 million. “So to make it tougher, or to hurt the league, it’s very calculated.”

He reiterated a description he’s used before in characterizing Trump, calling him “a divider, not a uniter.”

“Let’s get real,” Khan said. “The attacks on Muslims, the attacks on minorities, the attacks on Jews. I think the NFL doesn’t even come close to that on the level of being offensive. Here, it’s about money, or messing with — trying to soil a league or a brand that he’s jealous of.”




Roger Goodell and owners failed to enact a policy of penalizing players who do not stand to respect our anthem.

Maybe it’s because he’s gotten pressure behind the scenes from activist owners like Khan.

Khan did donate $1 million to President Trump’s inauguration, but he certainly seems to regret that decision.

The Jaguars have home games on November 5 and November 12 – the day after Veterans Day.

Usually NFL teams honor military veterans during pregame ceremonies around Veterans Day.

But no matter what the Jaguars do, their actions would seem very disingenuous.

  1. I lost a bunch of good friends and colleagues fighting for what our Flag and Country stand for. Just a shame that a muslim full of hate can come in and control NFL players like he does and Kapernick is controlled by his American hating girl friend. I hope the head of the NFL and all of these idiots who disrespect the Flag and the National Anthem keep losing fans. I used to watch NFL games but not any more. Maybe after they get done losing millions over this stupid disrespect they will finally come around but I doubt.
    I am just an old retired E-7 who has had enough of the BS

  2. Man get real you started out good but I should have known when you kept on with the Christian dialogue where you were headed!!! Listen ALL FORMS OF ATROCITIES have been and still are being committed under the pretense of CHRISTIANITY!!! All races other than the WHITE race were and still are considered SAVAGES by many so called CHRISTIANS, just read these comments people it’s sickening to think that some of you TRULY BELIEVE THAT THE GOD I KNOW, really wants us to treat our fellow human beings the way some of you think we should is even close to being truly CHRIST LIKE!!! Oh, it’s Christian alright I suggest that everyone who thinks this way read THE IMPERIAL CRUISE to see what I mean!!! Can’t remember the author but extremely enlightened about CHRISTIANS like many of you and why you guys think the way you do!!!

  3. Friends I have been to Africa, and believe me, you don’t want to go there. Most Africans I worked with would cut off a hand for the right to come to the go old USA. Black Americans have no clue just how bad it is in Africa, and they really don’t give a quack-quack. I haven’t watched a NFL game sense the first knee was bent….

  4. Why is our tax money supporting stadiums any. Take the millions paid to the players to support it. Every time a business comes into town we have to give them a tax break for five-ten years. Then when they need to start paying tax, they move on to another town… Smart Politicians must be getting their palms greased.

  5. Speaking of the NRA.. You may want to keep your powder dry… Friends, guns is what freed this country from the British and guns is what will keep this country free from the liberals.

  6. This is nothing but a big smoke-screen under the guise of “black injustice”.
    I wonder if Kaepernick’s girlfriend knows this manager, Mr. Kahn?
    This girl friend, if anyone cares to know is a spy from Saudi Arabia.
    She is a dj for a radio station,and treats Kaepernick as a slave to her.
    I am sure she had an agenda in the United States. She advised Colin to
    start this protest, and the rest is history. I am sure Soros is loving it.
    What better way to strike at the heart of America than to spoil a favorite
    past-time. What better way to try to stip away our pride and patriotism?
    Just another “play” in the globalist play- book. Wake up America! No
    coincidence that Kaepernick is signed by Mr. Kahn! Now this makes him a martyr
    to the cause of Islam.
