Trump just rubbed more salt in the wound for Roger Goodell with this tweet

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!”





Indeed.

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.

  1. This former NFL Fan has been supporting the NFL since 1956 but that support ended in 2016 when the NFL disrespected the United States and our Military, Veterans, Law enforcement etc. The NFL allowed the Thugs in the league to take it over without challenge the cowardice the the owners and the commissioner is shocking,
    So long NFL now it’s onto the NHL where the players are respectful to the nations National Anthem and Colors,
    It’s ironic a league where most of the players are foreign born Show more respect to the US than the Millionaires who play less than twenty games a year in the NFL, Enough of the NFL Already,

  2. Too much too late. I am not a racist but I do not support Blackmail. The players with all their inflated salaries should already be support the Black
    youth. This attempt at settlement in fact is supporting lawlessness. Part of their protest is supporting the St Louis incident and the Baltimore riot.
    I do not and will not support rioting and ignoring the law and failure to accept the truth. They supported all the crazy property damage and quite frankly upset that it will be taxes that rebuild their neighborhoods and stores of other blacks. Straighten up and become role models for what they call oppressed.

  3. Goodell is in contract negotiations so he will delay his firing for stupidity and lack of a solution as long as he can. $40 million was his compensation last year. I wouldn’t retain him if he volunteered!

  4. I haven’t watched an NFL game in 2 weeks. They can continue their knee Ben’s or whatever, I don’t care. I’ve gone to NASCAR where fans and participants all love and respect our country and military.

  5. Very big men with very small brains demanding that wealthly men with very deep pockets follow their lead. It is a rebellion that is doomed to fail for they put forth no solution. Should all black men be exempted from following a police command? Should every place of business be obligated to make sure their windows are NOT shatterproof? Should women be fair game?

  6. With everything that has been said and continues to being said, all of this really comes down to one thing, that is what ALL should learn in Schools…. I am speaking about learning HISTORY as a course requirement as then these Disrespectful Players would know they show RESPECT to Our Flag, Country and to Our Veterans who are the ones who fought, died, we’re mamed defending this Country to be FREE….. If you don’t know the History of all things Past, Present and possibly Future, then you lack the undestanding of Respect for Our Country as shown by these kneelers, sitters, no shows, fist raisers, etc……Teaching HISTORY should be a REQUIREMENT and must be Passed to achieve Graduation….Bring back the teaching of History for ALL….
    GOD BLESS AMERICA !

    • REAL HISTORY OR THE SAME HISTORY THAT ONLY PROMOTES MANY FALSEHOODS AND TOTALLY ELIMINATED CONTRIBUTIONS FROM PEOPLE OF DARKER SKIN COLOR??!! You see the history I learned in school and I did learn history in school, didn’t teach US any students of ALL RACES much about the contributions that NON WHITES made to the building of OUR GREAT COUNTRY!! People want HIS-STORY to be taught not HISTORY to be taught!!!! Just wanted to see if you all are WILLING to LISTEN TO WHAT’S BEING SAID WITH OPEN MINDS!!!!!

  7. HEY, IT’S TO LATE. ANYBODY THAT GOES TO GAMES OR WATCHES ON TV ARE NO BETTER THAN THE A/H WHO WON’T STAND FOR OUR FLAG OF “THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. MILLIONS HAVE DIED TO GIVE YOU THE FREEDOM YOU HAVE, AND YOU AIN’T NOTHING BUT THE SCUM OF THE EARTH. YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW HOW BADLY I WAS HURT IN THE KOREAN WAR, BUT TRUST ME, WITH BOTH LEGS AND ONE ARM GONE, IT’S NOT PRETTY, BUT I’M A SURVIVOR. IT TAKES ME A LONG TIME TO WRITE THIS, BUT IT HAS TO BE SAID. I WISH ALL YOU SCUM BAGS WILL GO TO HELL. THAT’S YOU AND ALL THE SCUM BAGS WILL GO TO HELL.

    • Thankyou for your Service and Sacrifice, you and many others deserve more….. I too am a Veteran ( Vietnam ) and I respect my FLAG, COUNTRY and ALL who fought to give us FREEDOM…
      Thankyou ! GOD BLESS !

    • God bless you ! I STAND WITH AND FOR YOU! I’ve been a huge football fan most of my life , have not watched a game all season. It was very difficult in the beginning and I thought I would watch once they all stood again. But now that I’ve learned that the league wants to give 100 million dollars two black lives causes, and the money is going to come from money that has been allocated for cancer and veterans!! Knowing this that they have caved I’m done I don’t care if they sit or stand!

    • Jack ~ your comment brought a smile to my face.
      My late husband was USMC, Vietnam. I don’t think he would be a fan of the NFL these days…they continue to spit on his grave.
      THANK-YOU TO ALL VETS HERE AND GOD BLESS YOU!!!

  8. President Trump is right and Goodell and all who kneel, sit, no show, raise a fist are shaming themselves into oblivion, but they seem to lack the mentality of respect realizing this along with there FALSE claim to being oppressed and mistreated by the Police…..The Protests as what they claim is ALL FALSE and cannot be Proven to exist……
    There Protest should be about the NEGROS against other NEGROS and causing wide spread harm in many communities and they do not try to solve this problem, only to blame False acqusations upon other things, just like ALL Democrats do ALL the time……
    Goodell and the rest of these Disrespectful Protesters need to be shown what Respect is and it doesn’t come from kneeling, sitting, no show, etc….. FIRE the lot of those participating and do not allow them to return…. DRAFT the Bumbs to the Front Lines until they’ve learned to respect Our Country, Flag and Our Veterans…..
    GOD BLESS AMERICA !

  9. Trump is right about the spoiled brats and their FAKE protest. Everyone of them needs fired and banned for life from the game. As for Goodell he does not deserve a new contract he should have to pay back his pay recieved in the last two years or for as long as the protests have been going on. The protests are FAKE for the following reasons 1) They say nothing about the SLAVERY and SLAUGHTER going on in their Ancestral Homelands or in Northern Africa today. 2)They won’t say a word about all the blacks who kill other blacks. 3) They only protest one game day the rest of the time they hide behind their Multimillion Dollar homes walls protected by the very police they say they hate. 4) They NEVER protest after or before games just during the Anthem of the Nation that allows them to play a game for millions a year.

    • I was a fan for YEARS but have not watched a game this year since the JERK started everything. Why don’t these little kids leave this country along with BIG mouth ROSIE and all the other big mouths who were going to leave if TRUMP won the election. GET Out of here. You all make me sick. Let the bums become REAL BUMS in another country. Hit the road, you are breathing my air.

    • The owners are to blame for not standing up for this country and all the Americans who live here and respect this country. And all the people who still attend the games, they are just as bad as these morons who are kneeling during our anthem

  10. Once again our President is absolutely correct! Rodger Goodell is an incompetent idiot and has completely ruined a Great American pastime, by allowing this behavior to continue. I knew he did not care about Football when he allowed that psychopath, Micheal Vick, to return to the Sport. I guess the Owners will have to be on the verge of bankruptcy, before they will replace him or fire the Players who refuse to Stand for the National Anthem! This will be the first time in my adult life, that I have no plans to watch the Super Bowl! Advertisers mind as well be flushing their money down the toilet! And not allowing the Players to take the field until after the National Anthem is the wrong answer and will make things worst!

    • Hopefully they are close to bankruptcy. They have to be losing a lot of money. Just looking at the pictures on line of the empty seats makes me laugh. Now the next step is to cut off taxpayers dollars to assist the stadiums and what ever they use that money for. Let those players help pay for them. Make the players obey their contracts. In any normal business you follow the rules or you are fired. I guess liberal idiots are the only ones that don’t think they have to follow rules.

    • You are correct. It also time for all local, state and federal governments to stop supporting the nfl. These stadiums wouldn’t exist if the different government agencies didn’t give funds and tax credits. Let them fall on their faces without our tax dollars keeping them up.

  11. It is a travesty that pro football has lost it’s stature in the sports world. I too have been a long time fan but no longer. Most black players come from poor backgrounds and have forgotten it. Resurrecting the league will be an arduous task, especially with Goddell running the show.

    • I, too, thank Goodell for doing a great job. He should demand $100,000,000.00 per year. He opened my eyes. He is saving me a lot of wasted time and money.

  12. Now they have a scheme they put together to save their butts, losing fans left and right and losing money. Not being able to pay the pensions of the retired NFL so getting it from everywhere. Now they are telling us the millions they intend to put into the Social Issues they were kneeling for. The Social issues they knelt for were the publicized and propagandized killing of black men who were in the act of or had done something wrong and were shot by the police.

    Also they must think us fools and short memories we know what Kaepernick said he was kneeling for. He said clearly he wouldn’t stand for a flag or a country that oppressed people etc. What the Hades was he talking about? He was a millionaire because nobody oppressed in this country.

    They are disgusting.

  13. FOOTBALL are they still playing? As A VETERAN how can I see these “people” SPIT ON OUR FLAG AND NATION and week after week and still watch a game? These “people” claim to be african AMERICANS well why don’t they take their ASS’S back to africa and see how well they would do there! There is NO other country where these UNGREATFUL P.O.S. cpold make a living doing what they do and they have the BALLS to SPIT on it. I say GET RID OF THEM ALL and lets see what happens next. Burger King might be looking for A FEW ASSHOLES.

    • As a Vietnam Vet I agree 110% with Steve Volkle. I had a lot of black brothers in Nam that died by our sides. If they were alive they would call the kneeling players UNGRATEFULL POS!! Down with the NFL. GOD! FLAG! COUNTRY! PRESIDENT! GOD BLESS ALL Four! Good bye NFL ASS HOLES!

      • PS: ROGER GOODELL IS A SPINELESS WEAK DICK, THAT NEEDS REMOVED!!! GET SOME ONE ON THE RIGHT SIDE TO RUN THE NFL, NOT THESE LIBERAL LEFT SIDE WEAK, SNOWFLAKE BITCHES!

    • Hey Steve, I must point out, that there is no such RACE as an African American and for most they cannot even claim that they have come from Africa….. There Heritage may have come from Africa, but that is the extent of it……. The same goes for any and all of us, as our Familys from many Years back migrated to this Country
      ( Legally ), and are now Citizens of the U.S.A. We don’t call them French Americans, Italian Americans, German, Swedish, etc……. so why should we call NEGROS ( this is there actual RACE and Documented as such ) African Americans…??
      Is it cause of the N_____word, but really this can apply to anyone whether they are White, Yellow, Red, Black, etc….. It’s the character in which someone displays in what might be someone calls them by this
      N______word and nothing more….. Using this N_____word, it seems that most Negros will automatically think you are a Racist and want to cause trouble, but you might NOT be referring to anyone at all who is a NEGRO, yet they will blame you and accuse of being such….
      Shameful we have a Society that only speaks of things in which has in no way been a Racist, yet is accused of it….. Sorry to have to point this out, but it is a TRUE FACT and cannot be denied……

      • Hopefully they are close to bankruptcy. They have to be losing a lot of money. Just looking at the pictures on line of the empty seats makes me laugh. Now the next step is to cut off taxpayers dollars to assist the stadiums and what ever they use that money for. Let those players help pay for them. Make the players obey their contracts. In any normal business you follow the rules or you are fired. I guess liberal idiots are the only ones that don’t think they have to follow rules.

  14. Congress needs to take away the NFL tax exempt status & make the NFL & its owners pay full taxes like the rest of us!
    Also no more public funding of any NFL stadiums
    GO PRESIDENT TRUMP!!

  15. To answer the first sentence in this article, I would have to say both as well as spineless. What is too bad is that the stadiums aren’t completely empty. I know it will affect every business within the stadiums but a month of totally empty stadiums for every game would cure the problem in a hurry. I realize people have season tickets but I have lost money since kaeperdirtbag started his phony antics because I have tickets already paid for but will NOT attend or watch any of the games and have not since last year.

  16. I’m 69 years old and have been watching pro football back as far as I can remember. I stopped watching about the second week of the season and don’t plan to go back. The nfl is dead to me.

    • The demise of the NFL is no concern to me as I could care less, I stopped watching years ago during the black power fist raising and this issue with the NFL just cements my decision more and will also bury the NFL in that same cement. what concerns me is the tax payers that were duped into paying for all those stadiums for the NFL. Sorry for them and just hope they can make some use out of them without the NFL.

      • Hey David, this symbol of a Power Fis being raused is NOT a BlacKs thing, it is a Communist symbol as a show of strength in the Communist Regime……so apparently we must have Communists amongst us in the NFL who want to show all of us their Disrespectful demeanor…..
        Send these Commie Bastards to HELL where they belong……

  17. WHO WATCHES COMMUNIST FOOTBALL ANYMORE? ONLY FOOLS AND PIGSKIN ZOMBIES. THE DAY THAT LINCOLN FREED THE SLAVES SHOULD BE A NATIONAL HOLIDAY. THE DAY THE THE COMMUNIST DEMOCRAT PARTY RE-ENSLAVED THEM SHOULD BE A DAY OF NOURNING.THE KKK IS BACK KOMMUNIST KNEE KAPPERS.SPIRIT OF AMERICA PARTY RADIO SHOW. WANT TO SEE A HI SCORING GAME. TRUMP INDUSTRIAL AVERAGES FROM 18,000 THE DAY HE REOPENED THE PIPELINES THAT THE COMMUNISTS CLOSED TO TODAY 24,000. THE TIA IS IN THE WAY TO 25,0000.

  18. BY THE END OF THE SUPERBOWL THE NFL WILL HAVE LOST 1 BILLION DOLLARS OR MORE..SO WHEN PLAYERS CONTRACTS START COMING UP THAT MEANS BUT ONE THING..LESS MONEY TO SPREAD AROUND AND YET THESE KNEELERS ARE TOO STUPID TO SEE THAT.LIKE IVE SAID BEFORE,EVERYTHING THEY TOUCH THEY TURN TO SH@T!!(OBAMA)

  19. Trump is right on target. Gooddell should go along with all of those protesters. I stopped watching the NFL a few years ago, to many primadonnas. Get paid way too much and are definitely not team players anymore. Then they wonder why they can’t win a Super Bowl or even get there.

  20. The president speaks for the country, like it or not. He is sworn to honor and respect, obey and enforce the Constitution and Federal laws of the the USA. You better listen or keep your peace!

  21. The 24 players that kneeled this past weekend should be fired Godell is a
    Bumb.Protest on your own time you spoiled basterds.If you pricks want to do some real good give some of your millions to the blacks that you are so concerned about.NFL can go to hell.

  22. Thugs for players, nincompoops for leaders and timid trust fund babies as owners, idiots for sports media – a perfect combination for the perfect storm.

    Oh, I forgot two other elements: 1) stupid Federal, State and Local governments providing legal monopoly status on the NFL, non-profit status for the NFL, huge tax benefits and funding for their palatial stadiums and ongoing tax funding for team operations and 2) blind and dumb fans that vote for the taxes that further enrich the players, NFL management and owners!

    • They should be drafted into the military and forced tog earn respect the right way by fighting for their country. For college grads they are too stupid to see that not only are showing disrespect for the soldiers, but the country and the anthem. DRAFT THEIR ASSES!

    • your first sentence is right on……no more nfl for me. college football is the way to go. poor players to be drafted tho…the money wont be there thanks to the idiot players who do not get it….that the fewer fans and low tv ratings decrease the $ pot.
      those who are into the “protest” ought to have their contracts suspended.

      • I’m glad that you’ve mentioned the nba. That’s where the next battle will be fought. Unless you think that mark cuban is presidential material.

  23. The NFL needs to clean up their act, Get rid of the convinced felons & the drug addicts,lets not forget those who beat their wife’s & girl friends!!!!

  24. Stand with MY PRESIDENT! Thank you. It’s disgusting to me that anyone can endorse what these players have USED their visibility to do. They all need to be fired including Roger Goddell. This IS A GREAT COUNTRY, WITH GREAT MILITARY, WITH A FLAG that deserves respect. To all these players and Goddell I say spend your OWN TIME AND MONEY AND RESOURCES to change whatever you want changed or to bring visibility to a cause this is the time the American public is paying to watch football, NOT YOUR PROTESTS. ANY SUBSIDIES NEED TO BE DISCONTINUED AND I HOPE MORE PROUD AMERICANS STAND UP FOR OUR MILITARY, OUR COUNTRY AND OUR FLAG BY NOT TUNING IN TO THE NFL

  25. I’m a huge football fan but I will not watch it and canceled my Direct TV Football. TRUMP has never been more right about anything thus far. He really does have his finger on the pulse of the AMERICAN PEOPLE.

  26. What boggles my mind is they claim to be kneeling, disrespecting Veterans the Country Flag and Anthem, to protest the treatment of blacks in this country when the ones doing the most mistreatment are other blacks. Yet instead of going to black communities to try to do some kind of good they just throw their tantrums and collect their exorbitant fees and continue their drug use, spouse abuse and all around asinine activities.

  27. Sad that these players are taking control from their managers. Their ignorance will cause them to lose income as people quit watching them, me included.

  28. No football this Thanksgiving our family used to
    all watch after dinner. This year we all watched a movie together and had a great time,
    Goodell should be fired but yet the owners are extending his contract!
    That should tell you that the owners still are making big $$$$$ and simply don’t care about America or “any of us that pay and pave” their way to antiAmerican

  29. I totally agree with President Trump. It’s time these whiny babies grow up and begin being the respectful athletes they are supposed to be.

  30. The players are alienating the fan base. Not a good idea. The NFL tepid response is like pouring gasoline on a fire. Trump is speaking to a majority of the fans.

  31. Get rid of Gooddell and put in someone with some balls and maybe they can save some fans, excluding myself but what can I say.

    GO TRUMP

  32. I’m with PRESIDENT Trump!
    Haven’t watched an NFL game all season! They are now irrelevent in my life.
    I get more excitement from professional golf!

  33. Just heard on a radio talk show that the National Felons League lost $500 million so far, and ESPN laid off 150 people, YES! Hope they lose that much and more. Now stop the subsidizing of the stadiums!!! Put em out of business.

  34. Well, the NFL can hear it from the President, they can hear it from the sound of those numbers dropping, they can hear it in the news, and they can hear it from their fans on the streets… but they STILL haven’t learned what the point is that everyone’s trying to make. WHY are they still allowed to represent a sport that America used to love, when they’re THAT stupid? They’re simply choosing the wrong time and place for this kind of demonstration! They solve NOTHING with this… and they still haven’t learned!!

  35. Being a septuagenarian, I’ve watched the NFL (except during a Marine tour in Vietnam) faithfully for nearly 6o years, first with my dad and later with my son. Now I’ve stopped watching. Whether I’ll ever return or not is undetermined but I’m considering giving away my team jerseys, sweatshirts and jackets as well as my 27 team hats (including several from past Super Bowls) which will free up considerable space in my closet.

  36. If I was to have tweeted what President Trump tweeted, nobody would pay any attention. When the president tweets, people listen. I might not agree with everything the president says or does but regarding this issue all I can say is thank you, Mr. President.

    • I’ve been wondering the same thing – that’s “their” money walking out the door. Of course most of these players only have “participation diplomas” – meaning that sheepskin they received and $6.00 will “qualify” them to buy a cup of coffee at Starbucks.
