Trump stands strong. NFL folds

Earlier today NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was forced to buckle...

“Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the national anthem,” Goodell wrote to NFL club presidents and chief executives. “It is an important moment in our game. We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us. We also care deeply about our players and respect their opinions and concerns about critical social issues. The controversy over the anthem is a barrier to having honest conversations and making real progress on the underlying issues. We need to move past this controversy, and we want to do that together with our players.”

A short trip down memory lane

A. NFL players disrespect National Anthem.

B. Trump takes the side of America and apple pie.

C. The media goes insane against Trump

D. NFL freaks out against Trump. Roger Goodell supports players

E. Washington establishment tries to scold Trump

Trump just sits back and watches them all crumble under the weight of patriotism

I was just reading about the effect the boycott was having on the NFL's ratings and attendance. Goodell's not as worried about patriotism as he is their bottom dollar. Drops in ratings are running from 17% to 35% and the companies paying the big bucks for running their commercials during a game are highly upset.

Most of the owners could care less about the players kneeling or a fist high salute during the anthem. What they do care about is $$$$$.

There are 32 NFL teams and 32 billionaire owners. Seeing the empty seats and the ratings tanking was when the owners started to notice. They might be a bunch of jackasses, but they love their money.

If you want to give Trump the credit, that's your prerogative.

Trump gets credit for taking the side of America and apple pie and bringing the debate to a head. Beyond that all Trump did is sit back and watch the NFL and his detractors get crushed under the weight of patriotism.

It was good ole American patriotism that won the day here. That's what drove the ratings down and empty seats.

I'm sorry, but when one of his biggest accomplishments is curing the NFL of men who decide to kneel down during the anthem something is so wrong in this world.

Now if he really wants to impress me he would put down his phone and stop tweeting and actually keep someone on his staff longer than a mouse fart lasts.
