“In my conversations with NFL players, it was also clear how much our players care about sportsmanship, clean competition, and setting good examples for young athletes. That is why offensive demonstrations, celebrations that are prolonged and delay the game, and those directed at an opponent, will still be penalized.” – NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in Cowboys D-linemen DeMarcus Lawrence, Tyrone Crawford fined by NFL for shooting-guns gesture [via dallasnews.com]

  1. Gooddell is going to destroy the NFL single handedly. Ever since he’s become commissioner it’s been one scandal after another.

  2. Don’t blame Goodell. He just doing the liberal lefts bidding while making 40 million a year. I blame the owners. They are the ones who are afraid to do anything to stop him. They’d rather kill the NFL than be seen as Patriotic Americans. They are so afraid of the liberal media and politicians they’ll play along to their own demise. The old joke was NFL stood for Not For Long. It’s not a joke any longer.

    • Blame the owners? How about blaming the watchers? If nobody watches the games, then the NFL will die a quick death and be replaced by something else.

  3. I just don’t care any more.

    I’m not a consumer he would care about – I don’t go to live games, I don’t watch ESPN – but I am going to start being more actively opposed to proposed “packages” for stadiums, team tax breaks, etc.

    • By that logic, if they acted patriotic I suppose wasting tax money to susidize stadiums for millionaires would be ok?

      • I see some value in civic pride and such. So while I wouldn’t really approve, neither would I actively oppose.

  4. Players in the National Felons League go only an average of seven days between a member being arrested for…..whatever: drugs, assault, gun charges, domestic violence, murder.

    Where do I go to protest the NFL’s ongoing assault on America?

    • Whether any can agree with President Trump, one can agree that it is inherently anti-American to Tbow during the national anthem and presentation of the colors. Old glory doesn’t represent the current president it represents our country and it’s citizen’s rights down to the blood of those who defended it. I still didn’t sit when we had the last potus in office and he did far worse for our country than the previous president.

  5. I quit watching 20 years ago. No more of those depressing Monday morning blues.. No more angst at idiotic blunders by overpaid peebrained jocks/coaches and more time for guns and hunting.

    • Pretty much sums it up for me with NASCAR…quit watching 3-4 years ago and haven’t cared about NFL since the Montana and Young days. I don’t believe a word coming from the “news” “reporters” anymore and I never have cared what anybody on ESPN has ever said.
      I catch the headlines for news now and that’s it…just put in a -nfl in the google new search box first, hit enter and good to go.

  6. But if they made a gun gesture at the flag during the national anthem in the name of social justice, they would be heros.

    I think that the NFL (like many companies) have forgotten that they are a business. It’s never a good idea to piss off >1/2 your paying customers.

  7. It could have been worse. Typically, an NFL player’s “gun-shooting gesture” would involve real guns and live ammo.

    I blame it on CTE.

  8. Dont watch professional sports any more. Nothing but a binch of overpaid babies trying to act like thugs.
    The second you disrespect the fallen who died to protect your freedoms, im done with you. And i will never give a shit about you again.
    I used to enjoy going to games at Soldiers Field. Now you have to take out a second mortgage to pay for the tickets, parking and a couple beers. I stopped going to games 10 years ago, and i dont miss it.

  9. Just another example of a company taking a dump on its actual customers to pander to lefties who have no interest in their product. Under Armor, Springfield Armory, Bill Ruger, those I can recall at the moment. I swore off the Dallas Mavericks cause of Cuban, leaving the Cowboys is easy.

  10. I don’t know, but the display looks a lot more like drawing bows to shoot arrows into the air? Neither look left handed yet both held their left hands up in a manner which would indicate drawing a bow, notice the right hands pulling back toward the cheeks.

  11. I don’t care about these millionaires, the players, and billionaires, the owners. I hope the National Felons League goes out of business.

  12. I grew up near the Pittsburgh Kneelers and watched them 40+ years.
    Fvck em.
    I stopped watching all NFL last year with Kaperdick.
    I don’t miss it at all.

  13. After the Steelers disgusting display last weekend, I rid my home of all NFL related garbage. I am done with the whole thing. I truly hope the NFL runs right into the ground.

  14. Barry Sanders was always my hero because he never pulled crap like this. Goofing off in the end zone, dancing like Dion Sanders. Always being humble, handing the ball to the ref after a touchdown. I don’t support any of these ignorant protest but if they are going to fine players for one action but support others for another is a stab in the back. If I was these players I would appeal the fine, their just displaying their first amendment rights.
