You won’t believe what the NFL is planning to do next

Anti-American anthem protestors have divided football fans from the NFL.

Now, the protests may be dividing the NFL itself!

And what the NFL may do next will really have fans up in arms.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is no fan of the anthem protests.



He publicly promised to bench any player who disrespected the anthem.

One player who raised his fist after the anthem found himself released from the team shortly after.

It’s no secret Jones is also no fan of the league’s commissioner, Roger Goodell.

Commentators believe Jones encouraged Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter to bash the “lack of leadership” shown by the NFL on a shareholders call, blaming the ongoing protests for poor earnings.

Jones has publicly opposed Goodell’s contract extension, and now some of the league’s top brass may be formulating a plan to force Jerry Jones to sell the Dallas Cowboys.

ESPN reports:

The Associated Press has obtained a letter written for the NFL’s compensation committee that was sent to Jerry Jones’ attorney accusing the Dallas Cowboys owner of “conduct detrimental to the league’s best interests” over his objection to a contract extension for commissioner Roger Goodell.
….
“Your client’s antics, whatever their motivation, are damaging the league and reflect conduct detrimental to the league’s best interests,” the letter said.

Jones has said he has issues with compensation in the deal, along with concerns about the escalation of player protests involving the national anthem and how the league has handled them. He also has suggested that owners should revisit the power that the position wields.

The letter confirmed that Jones was removed as a non-voting member of the compensation committee after threatening to sue.




NY Daily News notes:

The NFL’s strong language implies it may consider punishing Jones for his actions under Section 8.13 of Article VIII of the NFL’s Constitution & Bylaws, a possibility multiple owners have already discussed…

Section 8.13, titled “Disciplinary Power of Commissioner”, gives Goodell the authorization to discipline an owner if he or she “has either violated the Constitution and Bylaws of the League or has been or is guilty of conduct detrimental to the welfare of the League or professional football.”

Possible punishments for such a violation could include up to a $500,000 fine, or even “cancellation or forfeiture of the franchise.”

Will the NFL consider taking such drastic action against Jerry Jones?

How would you react?

  1. It is about time affirmative action was applied to overpaid athletes in professional sports and we got rid of all the racial hippocracy.

    • It is my hope that not a single person will watch this Super Bowl or attend the high-priced game. Please, America. Stand up for what’s right.

    • Hill got off lucky, she should have been fired, she’s there to report the news and the game, and leave her smart mouth shut with her opinions, which seemed to be second grade level

  2. I think now would be the perfect time to start another major football league like the world football league. With the bad feelings the NFL is creating with the fans, people are hungry to watch football, but, refuse to watch the NFL, maybe now is the time for another league to compete with the NFL. They would start off with two advantages, one is people are really upset with the primadonna’s in the NFL and secondly, they are yearning to watch football, just not the overplayed whiners that are their only choice now. If another league were formed at the end of this season, they might be able to put the NFL out of business this time. Speaking solely for myself, I will never watch another NFL game, EVER.

    • I’m with you as well my friend, and it seems as though we are not alone considering the massive television viewer drop in the ratings along with people actually not attending games in person. I now prefer to watch college football now and will probably never watch another NFL game again ever.

    • My family, friends, and I will never again watch the NFL. Jerry Jones should drop the NFL, and register with the new XFL. This new league we will support.

    • I’ll never never watch another nfl game and a new league would be AWESOME!!! Imagine the scumbags losing their jobs because everybody goes to the other games lol, they’d all have to learn to say you want fries with that burger?

  3. That same section of the By Laws should be used against those players taking a knee. In fact, it should be applied against the Commissioner for his lack of action(s) in stopping the situation.

  4. Forcing Jones to sell would be the final nail in the NFL’s coffin. He’s the only one that has shown the willingness to find a solution to the problem. The other owners are a gaggle of gutless wimps who are afraid of the very idiots they are making rich. Godell is such a cowardly little wimp, I bet he sleeps with a night light and a tedddy bear. Even if at this point he ruled that players have to stand for the Anthem, it wouldn’t change their attitudes and core beliefs.

  5. As Long as the NFL acts Like the National Felon’s League, I will not watch them or patronize their sponsors. In fact unless they control their players and require them to respect the flag, anthem, and country, They should lose all taxpayer support for their stadiums, the players who continue to protest, especially if they deliberately throw a game, should be dismissed and barred from ever playing pro sports ever again!

  6. The National Felons League just became a nothing in my mind! There is nothing in their priviledged mind that I would waste my time watching>

  7. I am not a Jerry Jones fan but in this case he is 100% right and Goodel is 100% wrong and needs to go. If the NFL and it’s players can’t respect our flag, the country and the Americans that fought , died and serve today then it needs to go as well. If you want to protest it’s your right but don’t disrespect our flag, our anthem and our country doing it
    Amen

  8. The problem is not Jerry Jones, it is Commissioner Goodell. If he is so mamby pamby that he can not tell these un American players that this is a country of freedoms and they did not ome cheap. They came with the blood of patriots. He needed to tell the malcontents that disrespecting our anthem and flag is not appropriate as the venue is not for protesting but for football. Yes, they have the right, but NO they do not have the right to disrespect America. Goodell should take theprotesters, place them on an airplane, accompany them to a destination like North Korea, and stay there. See how they are received and treated. Screw the NFL, we don’t want a bunch of spoiled teenagers who got the free educations and perks aspiring to greatness in the NFL around America anymore. Time to send them where they think they belong – somewhere other than America. Hershel Walker said it best – and he is a true patriot. Get the hell out of here you un American, overeducated,overpaid and unappreciative morons. Leave, do not come back because we will not come back to the TV or the stadium to see such a bunch of losers act like monkeys out having fun with a football. No go.

  9. EVERYONE who cared about football, everyone who thinks Jerry Jones had every right to draw attention to the poor management and the lack of leadership from the Egotistical Entitled A Holpe Gooddell, needs to write and or call and say who needs to be Removed and Disciplined and it’s not Jones

  10. Jerry Jones should have a meeting with Jeff Sessions on ” is free speech a violation of the NFL bi-laws and can it be construed as “detrimental to the league”?

      • I agree, but I think Jerry Jones is no push over and Goodell is an against Trump which is why he is allowing the protests even though he has the authority to stop it he does not because he thinks it is against the Don, I think its time for a new league and Goodell can go to hell!!

  11. VERY SIMPLY.THE ONLY WAY TO BRING OUR COUNTRY BACK IS TO RID US OF LIBERAL SCUM..OUR COUNTRY HAS REGRESSED INTO MEN PEEING IN LITTLE GIRLS BATHROOMS,ILLEGALS RUNNING WILD COMMITTING GOD KNOWS HOW MANY VIOLENT CRIMES…250 DIFFERENT GENDERS INSTEAD OF JUST 2..A MEDIA THAT IS NOW A HITLERESQUE HORROR SHOW..OK TO SHOOT HEROIN,OVERDOSE,GET BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE,DO IT AGAIN THE SAME DAY AND NEVER GET A CHARGE BROUGHT ON YOU..WE HAVE REALLY LET THESE SICK LIBERAL BASTARDS PUT US IN A SPOT HAVENT WE?

  12. To completely terminate all this lack of respect and kneeling stuff from the NFL players, and due that the NFL depends on government subsidies and tax exemptions plus the billions of dollars they receive from Sponsors and the Fan’s ticketing, Mr Trump office must issue a project of mandatory law to be immediately submitted to the Congress for redaction and approval WHERE ALL EXISTING FUTBOL NFL PLAYERS AND THE FUTURE INCOMING PLAYERS MUST PERFORM A MINIMUM MANDATORY SERVICE AT THE US MARINES FORCE OR ANY OTHER SIMILAR TASK FORCE OF THE US ARMY AND/ OR NAVY [EXCEP US AIR FORCE].
    In this way the NFL players will learn in their own skin and blood how really means to be a REAL PATRIOT.
    With this measure not ever never not one of the players will disrespect our National Anthem, our Flag, our UNITED STATES FORCES, our Veterans, our Government, our President, and us HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF AMERICANS!!!
    Whoever any of the NFL players would try to jump over this law must be immediately separated from his Team forever. The College players must follow same way and sign a commitment of full respect for America Symbols and Institutions.

    • I like your idea. You know the blacks would file he race card on this, and, would probably get by with it, just because they are black. I wonder if, as dumb as they are, could perform even that task.

  13. First, every team should donate $500k to the 2 officers recently killed in the line of duty and repeat for each future occurrence. Second, fire Roger. Third, remove tax exemption status. Fourth, stop watching or going to games.

  14. I stand with Jerry Jones. NFL need to back him up are they can for get the NFL. It make me sick that the NFL stand only for color. What did NFL come from another Country? This is America and we stand together. If you don’t stand with us then leave. This is AMERICA!!

    • I agree America!!! And by the way all of this nonsense started in Ferguson when our illustrious leader Obama intervened and sided with a criminal rather than the police. Obama the great divider and now we are living with the results of another failed LEGACY!!!

    • Me too! Jerry made executive decision and it is the right decision no one should be demeaning the flag of the United States of America.. I believe the reason is that these people don’t even know what they are doing and why the flag is not what they should be protestingy!

  15. Trump Excutive order pulling NFL’S no-profit status is LOOOONG overdue . Because Goodell is the foremost reason for said pulling. J.J.is a the Hero, Godell is the goat. See who goes bye-bye once that is accomplished !!!!

    • Goodell has allowed the protests because he hates Trump, the rules allow the commissioner to stop these protests but he hasn’t because he is a left wing toilet turd!! So as far as I am concerned they asked for it and it will be a big tax that is over due and the league can blame Goodell!!!

  16. Goodell is the reason I don’t watch NFL football,if any football player can’t stand during the national anthem then I’m done ! If they can’t honor our Flag and the national anthem then I don’t need to watch them play!!!!!

  17. I stand behind Jerry Jones l00%. I am also disappointed that the owner or spokesman for Papa Johns did some backtracking.

    • I agree 100% and don’t understand Papa John’s. The best way to fix the NFL. Anybody that don’t want to honor America release them and let them find new jobs never to play again in the NFL. There’s too many great people that want the opportunity to play football in the NFL. And then NFL can grow again. Goodell need to be replaced. God bless Jerry Jones for standing up

  18. Goodell and his creeps need to go! hey are ruining football for the whole nation and when guys like Jones tries to do the right thing they try to knife him in the back! Time to stand up to the bully NFL, tell the kneelers to get up and shut up, or put them all back in the poor house!

  19. Let me get this straight. The person wanting an obscene raise is the person who will rule on the person who is opposing his raise and could take his franchise away from him. Sounds a little rigged to me. I am so glad I gave up on the NFL for good last year.

  20. No one is more guilty of “conduct detrimental to the league or professional football” than the players themselves, and yet Goodell didnt fire them, even though the league has a rule that players must stand forthe national anthem. Goodell is no saint either. Who gets to fire HIM? And how in He11 can the league force ANY owner to sell their team?
    The NFL seems to be operating under Hillary Clinton’s Life Rules…aka, “It’s Everyone’s Fault But Mine, And I’ll Kill You If You Get In My Way”

  21. If you want to stop blacks dying , then protest planed parent hood to stop killing BABIES and they are killing more BLACK BABIES who don’t care because they after the all mighty dollar by killing the unborn as if they are trash or a dollar bill to line the pockets of liberal’s who don’t care about you are anybody else but their self , liberal’s have a PROBLEM and that is the devil inside them because we as a Country have lost our morale values and it is sad , so wake up people you will not live forever and you have ask yourself are you ready to meet your maker because you will kneel before him that I garantee you so forget about pro football, we as a nation have to come together are we are though as a country , BYE BYE FREEDOM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. KELTON I TRIED TO RESPOND TO U A FEW DAYS BACK BUT THEY WOULDNT LET ME POST..I DONT THINK BY ANY MEANS THAT U R A RACIST.NOR DO I THINK THAT U MEAN ANY HARM AND I HEAR WHAT U R TRYING TO SAY..BUT MAN U HAVE ALOT OF THINGS ASS BACKWARDS.LOOK AT MY POST,COLON KAPERNIK..PEOPLE ARE SUPPOSED TO LIKE HIM?COOS ARE PIGS?CASTRO IS WORTHY OF A T SHIRT?PIECE OF SHIT THAT MOST PEOPLE DONT TAKE SERIOUS..COLON IS A JOKE.

  23. COLON KAPPERPRIK WEARS SOX DEPICTING ALL COOS AS PIGS..WEARS SHIRTS DEPICTING FIDEL CASTRO AS A HERO..AND KELTON,THIS IS THE GUY YOU LOOK UP TO?HIS MUSLIM RACIST WIFE HAS RUINED HIS CAREER..AND WE ARE SUPPOSED TO “FEEL WHERE HE IS FOMING FROM”?COME ON MAN,FIND A BETTER ROLE MODE,THIS GUY IS A FRIGGIN DISGRACE WHO BETTER HIDE WHEN THE “BROTHERS”ARENT GETTING THEIR HUGE PAYCHECKS ANY LONGER

  24. Am I mistaken or have the TV carriers of NFL games quit showing the flag and national anthem in their pregame program. The last time I looked all I saw was talking heads until the ball was positioned for kickoff. I don’t watch the games but I tuned in the pregame just to see who was still exposing their posterior by kneeling.

  25. It’s rare to witness an organization such as the NFL, or someone with the prestige of Roger Goodell, defiantly pound nails into their own coffin. But, that’s what we’re witnessing. It’s simply amazing! You would think that an organization that has dug a hole so deep the NFL and the team owners would stop digging, but no, oh no, the NFL is going to exercise the ‘wongo-wongo bird’ option, making decisions that cause the NFL to financially fly in ever decreasing circles until it eventually flies up its own … (fill in the blank). Syonara NFL

    • Totally agree with Tom and if someone is asked to leave the NFL it should be Goodell…good for nothing. I hope the NFL goes into never never land to be heard of never again.

  26. I have many African American friends who don’t believe the liberal propaganda and therefore they are successful professionals. If the pro athletes feel that there is a problem I would suggest that they give up their multi-million dollar salaries and train to be police officers; serving their communities with a lot less take home pay! Otherwise they don’t have the right to disrespect this country for claims that stats have shown are incorrect. Even African American law enforcement have said it is incorrect. It is about time that everyone in this country live like my immigrant parents instilled in us; to never feel sorry for yourself, work hard, and don’t dwell in the past, rather look to the future. My parents had a lot of obstacles, including being discriminated against, had to manage their money (never took government handout even when it was very hard to put food on the table) and eventually were able to put money down to buy a home. They did it by budgeting and not spending on things that they could not afford. They never looked at what the Jones had; they had their goals and worked hard to achieve them.

    • Do you really think your proud parents would admit to taking help? I remember my Grandfather being ashamed to use foodstamps but sending me in the store with them!! It’s called SURVIVAL and when your FAMILY is HUNGRY you’ll do what you have to do to feed them!!;MANY OF THE MEN BACK THEN WERE TOO PRIDEFUL TO ADMIT THEY NEEDED HELP BUT, THOSE MOTHERS DID WHAT THEY HAD TO DO TO FEED THEIR FAMILIES!! ALL DADDY CARED ABOUT WAS KEEPING HER PREGNANT AND AT HOME SO HE COULD BRAG ABOUT HOW MUCH OF A MAN HE WAS!! BUT MAMA HAD TO GET IT DONE NOT MATTER WHAT RACE OR RELIGION SHE WAS, SHE MADE IT HAPPEN!! THEN DADDY GOT TO SIT BACK AND GLOAT ABOUT HOW HE DID IT BUT IT WAS HER DOING WHAT SHE HAD TO DO ALL THE TIME!!

    • In addition they should all have to go fight in our wars…see then if they will honor our country and flag…try letting them live elsewhere and they will see how damn good they have it here.

  27. You are all supporting rogue cops who kill innocent, unarmed citizens. These police, in your view, have the right to pull over, harass, arrest and ultimately shoot and or kill unarmed civilians in our country. All of these citizens are black. One was Representative in Congress in DC. You think this is alright. The NFL players are kneeling for their fallen brothers and sisters. They are protesting injustice. You should support them.

    • Greg nobody is saying that. The national anthem isn’t about police or football. It’s about the freedoms we won and how we became a great nation. I think most level headed people would agree something has to be done with bad cops. Most people agree that the anthem isn’t the time to voice your concern over that issue. For all these players joining in the protest how many have actually done something about it? I still have problems accepting that’s even what Kap was doing in the first place. He was sitting on a water cooler for weeks and someone brought it to everyone’s attention and oh yea I’m sitting for police brutality. Why not say something weeks before? Nobody supports police brutality. And nobody supports a liar except for nfl players. Fallen brothers?? Let me know when an nfl player shows up at a funeral for one of these victims. Pathetic.

    • You are misinformed , your data is skewed, and and egregiously biased for the people of color. The Real data says , not suggests, 850 people shot/killed And of that number , less than 50 were black. So , you don’t care about whites/Asian/Latinos???

      • That reflects exactly what I have seen, deaths by cop. If they want to be constructive they should actively protest Black by Black deaths.

        • There is an average of 30,000 murders per year in this country, of which 21,000 are committed by Black males 18-30 years of age; 19,000 victims are other Black males. Formally such a phenomenon is classified as mass crime.

      • Rogue cops? Please it is pathetic that 98.6% of blacks being shot are by other blacks! Why not change the culture? Why are these players going into neighborhoods, attending funerals instead of living the good life I’m a white community, their children going to white schools? When was the last time or I should say the first time one of these players attended a black victims funeral and sat with the parents and talked to the kids about giving life instead of taking lives? it never happens, ever! You just don’t want to face the facts!

    • Greg Barr,
      There may be a few rouge cops, but there are a lot more good ones and good ones are being killed. If these players are so concerned about the treatment of Blacks then they should be in the areas where there are problems and trying to help solve those problems. If it’s so damn important to them then why aren’t they going to the schools and talking to black kids about the importance of a good education and staying out of trouble. Looks to me like it really isn’t that important to them, it’s more about them getting attention. How many of these players have committed crimes, taken drugs, and have numerous children with different women? These are men that children look up to as roll models? These over paid thugs don’t respect anyone and they sure has hell don’t respect the country that gave them the chance to be where they are and making the money they make.

    • you sound like you know more than anyone else, fact is you do not know what you are talking about, I worked in the media it is a matter that they make as a racial attack on America, there are 3 times as many whites killed by cops than blacks yet you never hear about that fact because it is not in the media narrative they want a racial divide, I opposed this crap which is why I was removed from the newspaper the police are posted in a negative light wrongly, there are fewer than 1% of the police who are bad, you cannot blame the other 99% for the wrongs of 1% unless you are part of the problem like KRAPernick!

    • Hope Mr Barr never is in situation where he may need cop to protect his life or life of someone close to him…sure there are some bad cops
      …more blacks kill blacks daily in Rahm’s shithole city

  28. Jerry Jones and Clark Hunt, of Kansas City, are the only owners worth a darn inthis league. They’re patriots and rational people.
    As a 40 year fan, I haven’t watched a game since week 1.

  29. Those who have chosen to disrespect the flag of our great country should leave voluntarily or be deported. Relinquish their citizenship temporarily–for a period of two or three years–giving them time to appreciate our country and everything it stands for and everything our forefathers intended. They would soon find out that they’d be begging to get back in, begging to respect the flag, and they’d be willing to support all of our veterans who have served to defend our country, and be wanting to appreciate the freedoms they had living in America.

  30. The NFL is in a self destruct mode Jones and others like him are trying to save it Godell has made over 212 million in the last 10 years time for him to move on

  31. Jerry. Jones is a true patriot. Tell us all how to help him. The other jerk just wants money, no matter how dirty it is. Are we supposed to feel sorry for these oppressed millionaires? What about all the regular people who can,t even afford to go to the games? Guess we must be the oppressors, the people who work two jobs to feed and clothe our families. For all you so called child men, grow up and stop being such rich cry babies and show the respect you were never taught.

    • It’s really tough if your smarter than the commissioner. Jerry did nothing wrong. However, the commissioner and a few other team owners cannot do anything right. Instead of doing what is right, they are letting the tail wag the dog.

  32. I PLAYED PRO FOOTBALL IN 1985..NOT FOR NOTHING BUT THE COMPETITION REALLY SUX NOW..PATRIOTS,EAGLES,AND THATS IT..ALMOST ENTIRE SCHEDULE SUX EVERY WEEK,ESPECIALLY THIS WEEK..PLUS THE KNEELING,PLUS GOODELL..GOD,HOW DO PEOPLE MANAGE TO RUIN AN AWESOME THING?THIS WOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED 30 YEARS AGO,THE KNEELING AND THE HLACK POWER SIGNS..WATCHED A GAME 3 WEEKS AGO WHEN A BLACK PLAYER SACKED THE QB AND STOOD OVER HIM HOLDING THE BLACK POWER HAND UP..I WAS EMBARASSED..OH WELL,WAS GOOD WHILE IT LASTED CUZ I DONT THINK ITS GONNA LAST!

  33. I HAVE BEEN A REDSKINS FAN GOING BACK TO THE GEORGE ALLEN ERA SO MR JONES OBVIOUSLY HAS NOT BEEN ON MY XMAS CARD LIST AND IT FEELS STRANGE TO SAY THIS BUT MR. JONES YOU HAVE TEXAS SIZED COJONES AND I AM NOW A BIG FAN. I AM A FORMER MARINE AND ALSO RETIRED L.A.P.D. AND SUPPORT EVERYTHING YOU ARE DOING. GIVE EM HELL SIR……….

  34. Jerry Jones appears to be the only owner who supports the values of most Americans. Anyone who knows USA history or has served their country or as a veteran knows that disrespecting the anthem and flag is the height of hypocrisy for supporting the USA. I am disapointed in the leadership of the NFL but have come to respect Jerry Jones even more. Thank you Jerry. Keep going and do not let the bastards keep you down.

  35. Kovo Holloman (Nov. 17th 6:04 pm) is an idiot, this moron should have been sent to Russia years ago. You are a jealous person of Jerry Jones’ wealth. Trump is the best President America has had in years. You need to GROW UP and smell the flowers. I’m sorry for you being so stupid. The only Pro games that I now watch
    are Kansas City and Dallas. Both of there Owners told the Coaches and team, anyone who did not stand at attention during the National Anthem would not longer be a part of the team. Too many players have never grown up.

  36. Roger Goodell…..is a certified, boneheaded idiot that has nothing on his mind but GREED for himself. he has no concern for what the fans think. Only for his
    own power and GREED. Go ahead and give him his own jet. Just make sure it has a
    faulty ‘auto pilot!

  37. jerry jones got balls something that spineless bastard goodell will never have. goodell is not qualified to pick up dog shit in central park. the sooner the nfl is rid of him the better it will be. we need a commsioner who can straighten out these kneeling cry babies

  38. I’ll stand with Jerry any day ! He owns the team an can do what he wants! If fan base is leaving he has the right to deal with it the way he see fit !roger dodger is Not Worth 44 million dollars a year < he is grossly over paid ! For that matter the entire nfl is over paid ! they don't need our money , cut all funding the sooner the better ! they will be the reason for their own demise !! nfl SUCKS !!!

  39. The way I read this article, Jerry Jones is being punished because he managed to take cotrol and avoid the kneeling protest of the National Anthem. Which was the right thing to do. Now Goodell is threathening to force Jones to sell his team because he and his team honor the flag during the playing of our Nationl Anthem. Goodell is just upset because Jerry Jones and his team show respect while others take a knee and goodell waited too long to make standing during the Anthem a requirement rather than an opportunity to disrespect our country, military and fans. This action has caused many teams and networks to suffer financially. Goodell is pushing for an utterly ridiculous contract to remain as Commissioner and Jerry Jones thinks he’s out of line and expressed his displeasure. As a pro football fan, the only way football can become successfull again is to get rid of Goodell for good.

  40. Rodger Goodell should change is name to Rodger Fairwell and leave the NFL and take his Protesters with him as I have no as in nothing but contempt for him and the knee protesters. First time in 47 years I have not watched the NFL on TV and will continue to do so as long as these players and Goodell disrespect the flag which is All of us as in AMERICA. DO NOT WATCH THE SUPER BOWL THIS YEAR if you really want to kick the NFL in the BALL SACK!!!!!!

  41. Remember Rush Limbaugh wanted to become an owner, & was rejected by the NFL????
    Maybe Jerry & Rush could start a NEW league of VALUE players & owners ????
    What do you think, would you support ????

  42. I have been totally turn off to pro sports because of the players for a while. If I never see another football game, I will be fine. A perfect example of today’s Immoral and Corrupt Culture.

    • You know the fans never got their moneys worth anyway. The overpaid ego tripping slugs never played with energy, they seem to go half speed so as not to get hurt. well they can all go the way of the manual typewriter for all I care. Don’t need them, don’t want emm.

    • I love the games but these over payed babies need to sit at home with out a check for a few years to remember who they are working for. And thank all the people who serve an who has served this great country

  43. The alleged commissioner should not be offered a new contract. He apparently has no backbone or these overpaid crybabies would be benched without pay. I agree with Jerry Jones the current alleged commissioner needs to grow a pair

  44. It just furthers the opinion that the NFL is run by a group of thugs.
    I applaud Jerry Jones and his stand against un-American activities in the
    league. As with our government, there seems to be a lot of swamp creatures in
    this criminal organization as well. I still suspect that it has a lot to do
    with why this “protest” started. Colin Kaepernick’s girlfriend (Muslim) urged
    him to start this baloney in the first place. It has more to do with Muslim
    vs American society. They hate all things American, it’s what they do. We will
    not have to wait too long for this truth to come out. Think Jacksonville Jaguars
    coach to see who and what their owner is.

  45. Roger Goodell is DELUSIONAL! He has sinhgle handedly wrecked the NFl by systematically insisting on Left(Commie) sided political Correctness for the League whose fan base is RABID RED RIGHt! Also heGIVES US MORE EVIDENCE FOR HIS LACK OF empathy and a TIN EAR by insisting that he be paid MILLIONS FOR LIFE and given his own commercial Jet FOR LIFE. He deserves nothing and should be immediaely FIRED. If all the owners other than Jerry Jones insist on meeting his demands, than they should be put on the hook for that. JONES CAN THAN TURN AROUND AND START HIS own football league that would respect the wishes if the fan base. There is plenty of talent out there and if he quality of play is a notch or two below that of the former NFL so what at least we know that these are players and ownwers who deserve our respect and we can be proud to watch.

  46. Goodell is SOOOO OVERPAID for his ” nothing ” position , and he wants MORE ????
    He is already a laughing stock !!! Put Jerry in to run the NFL and maybe he will not accept any salary , ala Mr. Trump !!!

  47. I have not watched a game since the protests nor will I this entire year! I am a vet and was in tears when I saw these players disrespect our flag ,our country ,and all our vets and current military! Trump was right by his saying that Nfl players are privileged! I am priviledged having my middle class job! Most of these Nfl players ,have never served in the military so they have no idea what our military and vets are dealing with! I never really cared for Jerry Jones but now I have the utmost respect for him! I have no problem with protests just not during my National Anthem! Villanueva for the Steelers is my hero because he was the only player to come out on the field when all of the other players cowered in the tunnel and wouldn’t come on the field! What would Tillman think about this crap today! The man left his career in the Nfl and gave his life for all these punks and everyone in this country! I am sick of the Nfl and will never return!
    J

  48. I am a football fan but have not watched a game since this disrespectful behavior started. These players are paid lots of money to play the game not give their political views. If you want to make a statement do it on your own time because I will not watch you do so on my time. I agree with Mr. Jones.

  49. Love the comments here. I think people need to get behind Jerry Jones 100%. And I agree NFL football is not what it used to be. Too many “cry babies” and I don’t care how big they are. GO JERRY!

  50. Could it possibly be that since Jerry Jones is a friend of our President that is the REAL engine behind all of this and yes I WAS an NFL fan but will NOT watch these whimpering wanna bes again unless of course Jerry were to start a real football league with real qualified American players!

  51. A new league! Yes! Absolutely!! C’mon America, get on the bandwagon! A New league would be THE ANSWER to all of the shenanigans…

    • 30 years ago there was an organization started by a group of wealthy individuals that offered an alternative to the NFL and it was called the USFL (US Footbal League). As I recall none other than our current President, Donald Trump, invested a lot of money in it.

      It failed, of course, for a number of reasons. They sued the NFL and a jury found AGAINST the NFL for running a monopoly, then awarded the USFL the princely sum of $1 in damages.

      Before that there was the WFL (World Football League) and the AFL (American Football League, which is now the AFC of the NFL).

      The point of this diatribe is to say that we can rant all we want but we must vote with our feet. We must get involved whenever an NFL owner comes begging the local politicians to build him a new stadium (at OUR expense) and we must let the NFL know that we are NOT paying to watch their garbage any more! IF someone does decide to start another alternative to the NFL we need to be willing to support it with our money and our time. Sadly, the odds are against anyone being able to compete against the NFL.

  52. I will quit watching and burn all NFL merchandise I have. Wait, nevermind, I’ve already done that. I guess I won’t do anything. I may write a strongly worded letter.

  53. If Jerry Jones is punished for his stand against Goodell and being a true American there will be a lot more people who be ex-fans of the NFL. They are burying themselves for being prima donnas’ and spineless owners. Who has Kept America free to speak in? Not our spoiled rich losers. It has been the service men and women over the years. If you don’t like the coultry we invite you to find another country…maybe Irac, Iran or Russia.

  54. RICHARD I NO LONGER WATCH NFL THEY DO NOT HONOR THE FLAG THEY DO NOT BELONG IN THIS COUNTRY ONLY AN AMERICAN WILL HONOR THE FLAG MY FATHER WAS IN WW2 AND MY BROTHER IS A VIETNAM VETERAN AND ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO SERVE OUR COUNTRY FOR FREEDOM THANK YOU FOR SERVING OUR COUNTRY

  55. Jerry Jones is a Hero!
    I have completely given up watching the NFL, Eating a Papa John’s Pizza and washing it down with Budweiser beer.
    Roger Goodell should be terminated from his position.
    The owners need to wake up and come around.

  56. Jerry Jones is trying to save the NFL…………..Goodell and players are ruining the league………….The NFL should sue them not jones…………Clark

    • Well put. If they sue Jones it means they back the disrespect of the national anthem too so we the people should stop completely funding attending or watching traitors. If you can make a petition against this disgusting treason against the nat. Anthem please do it and thousands of us will sign it to bring NFL to bankrupsy and they guilty traitors sacked with treaturous record to stop them from getting any job

    • the league needs to remove their globalist minded commissioner because he is the one who has over stepped his office and started to think of himself as god of the nfl…im behind jones..and we fans should only watch our most favoerite team play and no other nfl games each week or better yet turn the tv off and turn the radio on and simply listen to the games while doing something else and stop buying any nfl stuff….better yet start selling fire roger goodell stuff instead….and dont give the nfl any cut since hes not a player and dont add the nfl logo just place that on a prison type shirt….actually use the caption REAL AMERICANS WANT ROGER GOODELL FIRED…..and another shirt looking like the flag or some other patriotic symble with the slogan REAL AMERICANS WANT PLAYERS TO STAND….because there is only 1 real excuse for not standing and thats due to ones religious beliefs period….

  57. Goodell’s contract should be terminated, sooner the better! I am a 42 year veteran of the Air Force, active duty 22 years and Civil Service another 20 years. I was a Browns fan when they had championship teams Otto Graham, Lou Groza, Marion Motley etc……I no longer can watch this ugliness on the sidelines of misguided protestors nor the hopelessness of the current Browns!

  58. Goodell deserves NOTHING, in fact he should give back part of his check because he is worthless as a leader. WHAT DOES HE DO? (Besides receive a check he does not deserve?) I propose letting everyone who knelt or raised a fist be fired, as of now. Bring in a bunch of players who respect America and we will be just as happy to watch them. The difference between starters and third string is very minute. (And the owners could save themselves a lot of money by getting rid of the “prima donnas’ we have out there now.)

  59. conduct detrimental to the league’s best interests” over his objection to a contract extension for commissioner Roger Goodell. EXCUSE ME BECAUSE OF A PAY CHECK To the Weak Commissioner. HOw is that the best interest of the LEAGUE???

    • Yes. This “commissioner” who is IN FAVOR of the fists and kneeling? HE is the one detrimental to the League, NO ONE ELSE (except for ALL of the traitorous players who need to be summarily fired).

  60. I support Jerry Jones, he’s the only owner that has the guts to stand up for our flag. I think Roger Goodell is a spineless wonder, that is getting paid a fortune to do nothing!! If anyone needs to go it should be him. Hang in there Jerry, a lot of Americans are behind you. Sick of these spoiled players causing trouble.

  61. This is further PROOF what kind of scum we have in charge of America’s football league… it’s just the kind of low blow they can deliver in retaliation for his making THEM look bad. Jerry should just roll with the punches, and then come back like Rocky Balboa and knock their socks of with the lawsuit of the year.

  62. The NFL can go to hell for all I care. I doubt I will ever return. Nothing but a bunch of whiny felon losers They should leave this country and go back where they came from. But the most disturbing question is what kind of an American would still support these disrespectful POS? Still watching on TV and buying tickets, I guess these are the real deplorables of our country. No pride, no honor, no sense of gratitude for what the flag stands for. I hope the NFL goes bust.
