Goodell Caves: Fans Gasp, Protesting Players Rejoice As NFL Officials Release Their “Social Justice” Plan James Baker (


And the pinhead of the year award goes to…

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and his posse of officials can’t seem to figure out that the American People aren’t just upset about his perpetuation of disrespect for our country, they’re taking action. As ratings continue to plummet, it’s as if they are oblivious to the implosion caused by thousands of fans deserting stadiums exploited to protect their liberal ideologies—all funded by taxpayer subsidies.

We thought we might see a breath of fresh air after Goodell’s comment last week that a meeting was in the works. But no one held their breath—broken promises are nothing new, especially when they’re coming from the left side of the aisle.

Conservative skepticism was confirmed when Goodell said on Tuesday that the league would instead focus on fighting “issues of social justice”. Furthermore, officials made sure to snub out Goodell’s earlier memo which called on players to stand. Point blank, “social justice” is on the agenda for their new plan of action.

The 2-hour meeting was expected to produce a new policy that would work to forbid kneeling or sitting during the pre-game American ceremonies, which includes the playing of the national anthem and a moment of respect towards the U.S. flag.

Instead, Goodell says officials decided to focus on the protesting players’ concerns:

“We spent today talking about the issues that players have been trying to bring attention to — issues to make our communities better. I think we all agree there’s nothing more important than trying to give back to our communities and make them better. That was the entire focus of today.”

More hollow words from a hollow man running a hollow organization—they gave in.

But according to Goodell, things couldn’t have gone better, championing them “very productive and very important.”

Fast forward to this morning’s NFL press conference. Goodell answered heated questions for roughly 20 minutes—nearly every single one was about the rampant player protests and the national anthem. The wishy-washy league leader further added to flippancy by seemingly reversing their Tuesday meeting “progress”:

“We believe everyone should stand for the anthem,” Goodell explained. “That’s an important part of our policy, it’s also an important part of our game that we all take great pride in. It’s also important for us to honor our flag and our country and we think our fans expect us to do that.”

So which is it? Do players need to stand or is the NFL about to embark on a new parade for “social justice”?

At this point one thing is pretty clear: the NFL is trying to “un-offend Conservatives” that are leaving their broken league and causing a hemorrhaging hole, all while appeasing the same liberal tone they’ve shown all along. They want to keep their cake and eat it too: allow players to keep up their protests, back peddle slightly to make Conservatives smile.

But the problem with that politically-correct malfeasance is that it’s not just disingenuous and cowardly, it still misses the point. The NFL still hasn’t picked a side. And until they do, and make it known, they will continue to ride the middle fence of mediocrity, lost ratings, and financial ruin.

In the meantime it looks like the Conservative boycott will continue. It’s going to be a long season…
