NFL Owners and Players aren't going to be "scolded" by Trump. Trump's gotta deal with it and move on to important real issues.

All the negativity in the NFL. Millionares who act like children and then find. A judge to get them off. Name any average Joe at an average job that can do that.

I wouldn't call race baiting a "force for good" in our communities. Roger, bit of a tip for you, most SJW's don't like football. Cater to their bull shite is going to be a net negative for the NFL.

I dont give a damn what you bums say.. Its not about the Flag, its about equality and fairness in a country that was never set up for any one other that white folks to be successful and protected.. The problem is that you all are so racial charged, that you couldnt see inequalities, if it slap the shite out of you.. I havent seen any of you speak on the neo-nazi groups trying to bring the times before, during and after the civil rights movement.. yall can say stick to sports, well then yall stick to the jobs yall on and ;eave politics and justice alone... Get a clue bums

Name me one policy or law that's racist. I mean, outside of affirmative action.

Pretty sure this country is set up for all men created equal. If anything the people of color have the stark advantage. Example Black woman with 24 on ACT is accepted to duke while Asian man with 27 on ACT is not. It’s that simple. Stop blaming people for your troubles and better yourself in our great country. We’ve made it easy for you.

Can you honestly say that black people are not allowed to be successful when the players taking the knee are getting millions to play a game. Also, the last president of this country was a black man. That sounds pretty successful to me.

The NFL Corporate's unpatriotic position is why I don't watch the NFL unless the Saint's are in the playoffs or the Super Bowl. Goodell can go F himself!

That's it I have had it with the NFL- bad enough they have too many teams, diluted product and Free Agency has made a wreck of everything, you don't even know your team year to year anymore. A bunch of a-holes who play a freaking game, making millions of dollars, talking about injustice?? Give me a break! Screw those a-holes, I have loved football all my life but these idiots have ruined the game for me- they spend too much time bitching and trash talking than practicing to be better players and it shows on the field!

Let's no forget we have a president of the United States calling American citizens sons of bitches and acting more butthurt on this than the neo nazis. Both sides are retarded on this one. It's a fricking knee on a ground. Who cares. Move along.

Ask those who served or those who lost loved ones while serving "who cared".

And the kneeling has nothing to do with the players displeasure with the service woman and men in this country... It's towards police brutality of minorities... I think. Stupid reason to kneel but has nothing to do with the service woman and men that fight for this country.

I would think players kneeling or sitting is far more divisive than Donald Trump's comments.

If I only read that response, I would have no idea what it was referring to. PR statement at its best.

NFL only respects the dollar. They don't give a frick about the players or fans. Let's be honest, it's 32 old white billionaires making the rules.

The NFL only respects the dollar and legal loopholes
