    On Friday's Speak for Yourself TV sports talk program on Fox Sports 1, co-host Jason Whitlock (see photo) characterized NFL Players' Association executive director DeMaurice Smith as a "foolish looter burning down his own neighborhood" and demanded his firing. The NFLPA has reportedly hired several lawyers to fight the league's new policy requiring players to respect the national anthem or remain in the clubhouse. Whitlock said, "The NFL Players' Association should fire its executive director, DeMaurice Smith. According to the site Pro Football 'Woke' (officially known as Pro Football Talk), and its editor Mike Florio, Smith and the NFLPA have...
  • NFL players union partners with George Soros to bankroll anti-Trump ‘resistance’

    If you’re wondering why the National Football League has not cracked down on unpatriotic players protesting the national anthem, all you have to do is follow the money. Tax records show the NFL players union is in cahoots with anti-American leftist billionaire George Soros. The NFLPA (National Football League Players Association) donated money to the Soros-funded Center for Community Change Action, a left-wing activist group that bankrolls anti-Trump protests, according to tax documents released by 2ndVote. “The NFLPA has financially supported at least two more left-wing, anti-Trump activist groups,” 2ndVote reported. Not surprisingly, the NFLPA union has defended football players’...

    RUSH: Try this headline from the Washington Times: “NFL Players’ Union Teamed Up With Soros to Fund Leftist Advocacy Groups.” Folks, do not ever doubt me. When this whole protest the anthem thing began, I told you that left-wing activist groups were behind it, that they were running the players on this. It was how you get the players to take action that is actually harming the NFL when the players think that they are acting in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick in protesting the cops. That’s not what they were doing. They were inflicting damage on the NFL. And even...

    Tax documents show NFLPA activism goes beyond take-a-knee protests Even before its feud over the national anthem with President Trump, the NFL Players Association wasn’t on the same political team as many of its fans, judging from its contributions to leftist advocacy groups. Tax documents released by 2ndVote show the NFLPA donated $5,000 in 2015 to the Center for Community Change Action, a group active in the anti-Trump resistance and bankrolled by a host of liberal foundations, including top Democratic donor George Soros’s Foundation for Open Society. A member of the AFL-CIO, the NFLPA also contributed in 2013 and 2015...

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- The NFL players' union has advised its members to prepare for a lockout it expects to come in March, telling players to save their last three game checks this year in case there is no season in 2011. In a letter to the players that was seen by The Associated Press, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith said the union had an "internal deadline" for agreeing to a new collective bargaining agreement. "That deadline has now passed," he wrote. "It is important that you protect yourself and your family." The letter was dated Wednesday, and copies were...

    Forty years ago, Willie Wood ran the other way in glory. The slick Green Bay free safety snatched a Len Dawson pass and raced 50 yards, as the Packers sprinted to an easy victory in Super Bowl I against Dawson's Chiefs. Now, many contem-poraries and friends see shame as they accuse the NFL and its players association of running away from legendary players like him. Wood, 69, is certainly in no shape to chase anyone these days.
