NFL commissioner Roger Goodell proves once again he’s a major weakling and a total sellout. He participated in an interview called “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man” and expressed his wish that he had listened to Colin Kaepernick earlier.
Instead of having a spine and banning all politics from football, Goodell is showing that he’s bending over backwards for the liberal mob and allowing the athletes to use their platform to protest for social justice.
I don’t know about you, but if I showed up to work and kept protesting when I was on the clock, the job would probably ask me to go home and send me some of those pink slips or walking papers. Or you know, like George Carlin once said – he never got those, he was just told to “GET THE F*CK OUT!”
Now this interview that Goodell was in was just stupid and he’s just catering to the mob. I can almost guarantee he doesn’t like the protesting and social justice tarnishing his league or possibly his ratings during the season.
He knows we love football and we’re not giving it up – and anyone who says they’re no longer watching are probably full of crap anyway. Telling people you’re banning football to look cool on Twitter isn’t actually cool and I never saw one person IN REAL LIFE who actually refused to watch a sport they loved their entire life over some dumb dude taking a knee.
Kangadis over at MRCTV went over the big part of the interview:
“You said you listened, you heard, you learned. You even apologized to so many,” Acho said. “But in the midst of all that, there wasn’t a specific message or apology to the catalyst of it all, Kaepernick, who you mentioned. If you were to publicly express your remorse, apologize to Kaepernick, what would you say?”
Laying it on a little thick there, huh Acho? Essentially Acho wanted another apology or some form of obedience from Goodell, and the cowardly commissioner obliged him.
“Well the first thing I’d say is I wish we had listened earlier, Kaep, to what you were kneeling about and what you were trying to bring attention to,” Goodell responded.
In his very next sentence, Goodell admitted that the league had invited Kaepernick to come in and talk with them about the situation he was “trying to bring attention to,” but noted that it never happened.
Kaepernick had a huge platform as an NFL quarterback and he can do plenty off the field and get amazing headlines in the news.
Protesting at work, on the field, was a bad idea. It annoyed the fanbase. We get the point and most people agree and want all sorts of reforms, but keep the social justice nonsense OUT of our sports, out of our movies, out of our music.
Use your stardom on your own time, not during the things we love.
We don’t care about your social justice when we’re trying to watch a football game or enjoy a movie.
The woke crowd needs to go back to sleep and stop ruining everything.
Here’s the Goodell interview if you want to watch a grown man grovel.
