Trump wisely keeps NFL feet to fire with his version of instant fireside message

It only makes sense, politically and, by the way, sensibly. Players et al. are acting unwisely and ought to be called on their foolish behavior. Bully pulpit used by politically wise and sensible POTUS.

The NFL’s Thanksgiving games were turkeys from a ratings standpoint, hitting multiyear lows in all three time slots, while three of the four national windows on Sunday also experienced drops from last year, according to Sports Business Daily.

Meanwhile, the number of players refusing to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” jumped from five to 19 in Week 12, according to the ESPN tally.


“The NFL protesters are kneeling themselves out of a job,” said BizPac Review’s Samantha Chang in a Nov. 24 article.

Not that they are paragons of sensibility in the first place. Consider the inane end-zone antics post-touchdowns. Children, stop it.

    It is no cost to me to boycott the NFL since I have no interest to begin with. However, it is a real sacrifice to the guys who just want to relax on a Sunday before heading off to another week of work. Bully for them to pull the plug.

    These oversized goons will be back to being gang-bangers soon. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of ignoramuses.
