Hmm. I viewed many of the comments earlier and they weren't so flattering toward the One. I wonder just who at the WH was reading the "flattering" comments and decided to call NFL.com because now they're closed and not viewable.
You can see the number of comments left in the Most Commented tab. Still #2 as of this writing.
UPDATE: Now the most commented tab is now scrubbed free and you'd never know there was any interest in the article.
UPDATE II: You can find the cached page with only three comments here.
Reminds one of Stalin's practice of airbrushing his former associates out of photos after they were either killed or sent to the Gulags. 1984 is just too cliche'.
I think the ‘front office’ at the NFL is in the tank for 0bama. I’d bet most of the owners, coaches, and players can’t stand his ass. The fans are probably close to an even split, with a slight majority being against him.
Let us have an understanding here. You can have a fly-over of some crop-dusters or I get a clean slate and you get ...
But if he tries to preempt their game with a speech, 100% will be against him/it.
I was there before they closed it and they ALL were negative.
Well, there may be only 3 comments cached, but they pretty well cover it. LOL

“The National Football Leagues political action committeeGridiron PAChas weighed in on the hotly contested U.S. Senate election in Nevada that pits conservative Republican challenger Sharron Angle against Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid.
The PAC has given $10,000 to Reidthe maximum it can give in a single election cycleand no money to Angle, according to Federal Election Commission data compiled by OpenSecrets.org.
The NFLs PAC also contributed to other incumbent Democratic senators facing viable challengers this year, giving $5,000 to Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas; $5,000 to Russ Feingold of Wisconsin; $5,000 to Barbara Boxer of California; $5,000 to Michael Bennet of Colorado; and $5,000 to Patty Murray of Washington.
In none of these races did the NFLs PAC contribute to the Republican challenger.”
I was totally surprised at the NFL for the slanted article they published which invited all the political comments it received. I think the NFL should refraim from getting into those types of discussions.
Obama is a flub.
You think? Just look who is running the operation.
Roger Goodell is a tool and PC fag.
And down the Memory Hole they go!

wow how did you end up saving all those comments?
Wow—where did you get these? They are so delectable to read; I haven’t finished but I’ve relished every comment so far. Looks like The Won is about as popular as toe fungus.
Nice, smokingfrog. I love this one:
Obama promising jobs is like Jerry Jones promising seats at his Super Bowl

if you never make another post here to FR you have done your share.
You are one impressive freeper.
Yep and the funny thing is that we're talking about football fans, many of them tend to be apolitical.
It’s even more amazing when you consider he got it from the LA Times. Talk about liberal. It’s not in the same league as San Fransisco or Seattle, but it’s hardly a conservative hotbed.
“Roger Goodell is a tool and PC fag.”
I second that! :D
Please don't reply. I know you probably have hand cramps from that.
Well....no offense to you, Henry, but, even though I am not pro-O, it’s pretty sad to know that there ARE multitudes of sheeple...who prioritize the idolatry of sports, rather than be vigilant of those leading them to their potential slaughter.
God help us all.
Hate to sound like the wet blanket, but I think the LA Times is one of the “not to exceed 250 words” sites.
