It’s no secret the NFL’s anti-American anthem protestors are taking their toll on the league.
Photos of empty stadiums at kick-off are plastered all over social media.
After yet another week of disrespectful protests, Trump placed the blame squarely at the feet of Roger Goodell and it could cost him his job.
The NFL anthem protests could be stopped right now, with little to no effort.
Instead, the NFL’s top brass got caught up in the liberal media’s hype defending the protestors and their “cause” of “social justice.”
Liberal sports commentators went on breathlessly for weeks about players’ “First Amendment rights,” showing their ignorance of the Constitution.
Players have no First Amendment protections from team owners or the league, only the government.
This is American Government 101 stuff…
What this all really comes down to is a failure in leadership.
And President Trump hit the nail on the head once again by telling it like it is.
Two dozen NFL players continue to kneel during the National Anthem, showing total disrespect to our Flag & Country. No leadership in NFL!

Back in September Trump showed he astutely had his finger on the pulse of Americans when he called on the NFL to do something about these anthem protestors.
The media and political establishment scorned him for saying anything.
But he was right.
Americans by and large did want the league or team owners to address it.
And now the NFL is realizing how big of a mistake it was to let this spiral out of control.
Roger Goodell is in the midst of contract negotiations for a new 5-year contract as head of the National Football League.
Reports indicate it likely would’ve been finalized already if not for the anthem protests.
What do you think?
Should Goodell get a new contract as NFL Commissioner?
Or should he be told, “You’re FIRED!” for his failure to show leadership and decisively end these disrespectful anthem protests once and for all?
