Let them protest all they want when they’re not at work.

Trump is going to personally dispatch the NFL.

And the owners will fire Goodell in 7-10 days, AT MOST.

The Owners and Goodel let this happen with no forethought.

I quit them two years ago when it started.

Goodell just proves again how corporate big business interests want to run the country.

Trump endorsed Luther Strange the big business lobbyist in Alabama during the same speech last night.

But if Trump is serious about dealing with the NFL he’s going to need other fighters in the ring like Roy Moore.

If this country had a hundred Trump’s taking on political correctness every day, things would be dealt with more quickly and decisively.

I love it, too, and would love for all of them to be fired.

Makes me think owners are either of like mind or wimps.

Dear Roger Goodell and the NFL,

We Stand, not because of any contribution made by the roid-rageous thugs on the field of the National Felons League, but because:

The Cost

...It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Abraham Lincoln
November 19, 1863

So -

Enjoy those empty seats.

Regards,

HLPhat
Deplorables-R-Us

#WE_STAND!

They work for a corporation/company whose duty and charter is to MAKE MONEY. Cruel as it is, that’s the goal of a corporation, making money for the stockholders and owners. I worked for a corporation for 35 years ... there is no freedom of speech in a corporation. And if you don’t spout the company line, you find yourself in the parking lot looking for the company car that “poof” disappeared. (I watched many such confused ex-employees from the 4th story windows over the years). These NFL players are paid MILLIONS by the corporation, because people will pay millions to see them play. And if the people no longer care if they play or not, then they are costing the corporation MILLIONS of dollars ... FIRE THEM, Black, White or Purple! You don’t have any 1st amendment rights when you are in BUSINESS!

Goodell better be reading the fine print on his exit plan.

Goodell will not make it through the season, IMHO.

Roger Goodell, the hermaphrodite in charge of neutering the National Football League, has been destroying the-once fine All-American institution of football for more than 8 years.

When the owners have to start rebating ad revenue then it’s over for the commish.

Goodell should have waiting until he got his contract extended, before he opened his mouth and proved exactly how much of a fool he really is.

That, or he's also taking money from Soros.

Trump is holding a winning hand;he doesn’t need to backpedal one bit.

Trump will exact some revenge on the NFL for the past.
