NFL: League wonít respond to Trumpís latest tweets about protests
LA Times ^ | Sept 26, 2017 | AP

The NFL, for its part, was not all that eager to continue the back-and-forth with Trump. “He’s exercising his freedom to speak,” league spokesman Joe Lockhart said on a conference call with reporters, “and I’m exercising my freedom not to react.”

This is laughable. NFL spokesman - former Clinton press secretary - Lockhart was all blabby earlier this week - saying Trump was "out of touch."

However, polls show that up to 75% of fans hate the kneeling protests.

So, now, this gutless slimeball. having been shown to be a complete jackass, slithers away with "no comment"

Having once touched a Clinton, you can't wipe the slime off the guy. The NFL should ask him to pay his salary back.

The NFL goes against its contracts and Gamebook. It is gone to pay out the Wazoo.

And we, your fan base, are doing what we can to make sure you and your masters don’t get paid anymore too, Joe.

Raise the taxes on the League, the Teams, the
Players and the staff. They all need a Rich Tax. For the Left.

After a firefight there is an eerie silence.

That is what I think we’re hearing.

I am now exercising my freedom to disparage the NFL for selectively backing anti- American and anti-police demonstrations by over paid black athletes on steroids when they prohibited an emblem of solidarity after the 5 Dallas police officers were murdered at a black lives matter rally by a black assassin. You give hypocrisy a new definition.

NFL - just shut up and take it. You got in the ring, and put yourself on the ropes, and now its time to accept your beating.

That is the most intelligent response the league has had in a month. Shows that it has been staggered by the response to the cop-killer support.

Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump Sep 26 The NFL has all sorts of rules and regulations. The only way out for them is to set a rule that you can't kneel during our National Anthem!

Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump 11h11 hours ago Spoke to Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys yesterday. Jerry is a winner who knows how to get things done. Players will stand for Country!
