Roger Goodell is either willfully ignorant or a fool.
His weak leadership is running the NFL into the ground.
And Trump just summed up what’s wrong with the NFL in one tweet.
Trump continues to show he has his finger on the pulse of many Americans.
Many rushed to back his presidential campaign because he tells it like it is.
When Trump called on the NFL to put an end to the national anthem protest back in September, he once again was giving a voice to his “silent majority.”
Instead of decisive action from the NFL’s top brass, putting an end to the anti-American anthem protests, Roger Goodell listened to his liberal advisers and went to war with Trump.
They called the Trump’s remarks “divisive” and “inappropriate.”
Fox News notes:
“The White House has repeatedly defended the president’s remarks, saying that it is “always appropriate” for the president of the United States to “defend” the flag and the anthem.”
Goodell and the NFL are losing their war with Trump.
“At least 24 players kneeling this weekend at NFL stadiums that are now having a very hard time filling up. The American public is fed up with the disrespect the NFL is paying to our Country, our Flag, and our National Anthem,” Trump tweeted. “Weak and out of control!”

25 players sat or knelt during the anthem in Week 11, according to ESPN’s running count.
Monday Night Football’s ratings were abysmal.
In fact they plummeted to a new season low.
If the protests continue, the NFL risks losing much of its fan base for good.
