A special secret meeting was held by NFL owners and players in October 2017. “This was not a “league meeting,” per se, but rather a scramble by both players and owners to try and grab ahold of the kneeling situation that was unfolding, amid President Trump blasting the NFL repeatedly for allowing players to kneel.”
So, it’s President Trump’s fault???
Trump was treacherously betrayed by Little Bobby Kraft. “The problem we have is, we have a president who will use that as fodder to do his mission that I don’t feel is in the best interests of America. It’s divisive and it’s horrible.” When Myra Kraft died it was Trump who immediately came to console the Kraft Family.
But there is more.
Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffery Lurie “We’ve got to be careful not to be baited by Trump or whomever else. We have to find a way to not be divided and not get baited.”
Lurie’s not done he rambles on; “Another fact I want to throw out there: Many of us have no interest in supporting President Trump. Yes, there are some. There are some players who do, too.”
And the rambling continues; “But this is not where you brandish a group of people because they own assets in a sport we love, supporting what many of us perceive as, you know, one disastrous presidency. Don’t quote me.”
Jeffrey Lurie a true profile in spinelessness.
Buffalo Bills owner Terry Pegula “All Donald needs to do is to start to do this again. We need some kind of immediate plan because of what’s going on in society. All of us now, we need to put a Band-Aid on what’s going on in the country.”
Robert Mueller, is this not the definition of collusion? Oh, the analogies a band-aid, a main artery has burst and is profusely bleeding.
But Pegula is not finished he laments “For years we’ve watched the National Rifle Association use Charlton Heston as a figurehead,” Pegula said. “We need a spokesman.” Hey Terry, you got a spokesman Colin Kaepernick. The owners still don’t understand the dynamics in play here. Charlton Heston was defending the second amendment to the bill of rights. Kaepernick’s plight is perceived as hatred and disrespect for the country insulting much of the country.
In my opinion, President Trump was correct in holding the NFL accountable.
The NFL’s CLASSLESS response with an ill-conceived coordinated attack on the President was also an attack on his supporters.
