WOW: Commish Goodell Just Made Huge Announcement Before Sunday Night Football – Never Done Before!

Published

on

As if the back and forth on the NFL’s position on kneeling during the National Anthem wasn’t confusing enough, Roger Goodell to it to the next level this week.

Last year President Trump made it very clear he was unhappy with the players kneeling during the Anthem, he again this year has called out the NFL for not banning kneel, which Goodell did do a the beginning of the preseason. However, the NFL commissioner quickly folded on the rule.

This week Goodell quietly attended a meeting in New Orleans, he did talk on camera before the meeting or after. But when he got back to his office, he made an announcement that has people scratching their head.

Even as the NFL seems interested in putting an end to player protests during the national anthem, it is clear from
Goodell’s participation in New Orleans that as an organization, the NFL is fully supporting the players and their social justice issues, according to USA Today.

Goodell joined Saints linebacker Demario Davis, tight end Benjamin Watson, as well as Saints owner Gayle Benson and Saints president Dennis Lauscha, to talk to people involved in the criminal justice system in the Crescent City. The biggest topic was the cash bail system that detractors say puts people at risk of losing jobs, homes, and their children.

The NFL chief attended without an entourage and made no public statements before or after the day’s discussions. However, he was seen earnestly listening to speakers, asking crucial questions about how the league could help highlight their issues, and taking copious notes.

Norris Henderson, founder of Voice of the Experienced, Praised Goodell’s participation.

“But to hear the commissioner taking this in,” Henderson said, “and trying to get educated and … understanding the roles these individuals are taking inside their different communities and the importance of it, for him to see all this stuff up close and personal and hear all the challenges people face daily is huge.”

Saints linebacker Demario Davis also praised Goodell’s attendance saying that his participation was an important show of support.

“Not everybody understands why we’re out on the front lines of this,” Davis said to the commissioner.

“Having you here in this environment with us,” Davis continued, “nobody is better than you to go and relay the information to the owners about why we can’t just pull away from this. We can’t.”

The paper went on to explain the issue with cash bail systems such as the one in Louisiana:

[Goodell] seemed to be particularly interested in the far-reaching impact cash bail has – if someone can’t pay their bail, they will likely lose their job, maybe their kids, despite not even being adjudicated yet – and the lack of resources for women who have been incarcerated. He shook his head and winced while hearing four men tell their stories of being wrongly convicted and serving two decades or more before being released.

Indeed, with player advocates in the lead, material changes in state criminal justice systems have already happened in states such as Pennsylvania and Massachusetts. Louisiana is one of the next targets for the NFL Players Coalition.

With Goodell’s participation, it appears that the $89 million the league promised to spend on social justice issues will not be a simple payoff to players to get them to stop protesting during the national anthem. Goodell’s attendance on Tuesday seems to signal that the league will do far more than just throw money at the players’ issues.

I personally think that doing something about a social issue is far more valuable than disrespecting your country and the men and women that lost the lives to give you the right to kneel during the National Anthem.

Hopefully, now that the NFL is spending all of this money the kneeling will stop, but I don’t think it will.

Simone Biles Speaks Out After Interim USA Gymnastics President Blasts Nike and Kaepernick

Political correctness is a severe cancer in this world. I’m so tired of people apologize for something that needs no apology. If you are going to speak out about something…don’t apologize.

Don’t worry Simone Biles, it’s not like people are entitled to their opinion or that are shills for Big Corporations like dictating how everyone should think.

Dear Simone, stick to being a gymnast. Go on and keep making your money from a fascist company.

From Western Journal:

USA Gymnastics has found itself mired in perpetual controversy in recent years

The snowball began rolling in earnest when the horrific allegations of sexual abuse against team doctor Larry Nassar surfaced in 2015.

Obviously, Nassar’s actions are unforgivable and he deserves every last second of what is effectively a life sentence in prison.

After taking care of Nassar, the hounds of justice set their sights on USA Gymnastics itself. Any organization that could have been so unaware of the horrors taking place right under its nose deserve the accompanying scrutiny.

Former USA Gymnastics president Steve Penny was forced to resign by the USOC after his horrible mishandling of the Nassar scandal.

His replacement, Kerry Perry, also ended up being forced to resign after her leadership was questioned by USOC.

Now, Perry’s replacement, Mary Bono, has also found herself in controversy, though nothing as serious as the last two.

Bono, a former Republican congresswoman in California, was barely on the job when a month-old tweet of hers resurfaced.

“Playing in a charity golf tournament raising for our nation’s Special Forces operators and their families. Unfortunately, had these shoes in my bad. Luckily I had a marker in my bag too,” Bono said in a since-deleted tweet.

The accompanying picture showed her using a black marker to hide the Nike logo on a shoe.

Regardless of how you feel about Nike’s divisive ad featuring Colin Kaepernick, Bono is more than entitled to her opinion. Yes, she put Nike, and by extension Kaepernick, on blast for the latter’s rhetoric. But she’s hardly exclusive in her feelings. Bono is just one of many Americans who feel that Kaepernick’s anthem protests were disrespectful to the flag, the military and the police.

While Bono is obviously allowed to voice her opinion, she unfortunately also drew the ire of her organization’s premiere athlete, Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles.

“Don’t worry, it’s not like we needed a smarter usa gymnastics president or any sponsors or anything,” Biles wrote in a blistering response tweet prefaced by a “mouth drop.”

While USA Gymnastics hasn’t had a team sponsor since late 2017, Biles is personally sponsored by Nike, according to ESPN.

Perhaps realizing that Biles is the one gymnast she cannot afford to alienate, Bono promptly deleted the tweet and issued an apology.

“I regret the post and respect everyone’s views & fundamental right to express them. This doesn’t reflect how I will approach my position @USAGym I will do everything I can to help build, w/ the community, an open, safe & positive environment,” Bono said in her apology tweet.

It would be nice to think that this will be the final controversy USA Gymnastics will have to deal with for a while. But if recent history is any indication, that seems almost impossible.

Transgender Steamrolls Biological Women to Win World Cycling Championship

Dear Women, how do you like your world now? This is just another great thing brought to us from political correctness. Look at what the democrats have done to this world.

This is absolutely ridiculous and a affront to women and women’s sports.

From Louder With Crowder:

One of the up-and-coming trends on the left is trannies getting a stranglehold on sports. Gender-bending guys beating the bejeezus out of ladies in MMA. Transitioning girls on the juice competing against girls not on ‘roids. All in a days work for loopy lefties.

Now, there’s guys lapping the ladies in world championship bike races:

A biological male who identifies as a transgender woman won a women’s world championship cycling event on Sunday.

Rachel McKinnon, a professor at the College of Charleston, won the women’s 35-39 age bracket at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles.

McKinnon celebrated the victory on Twitter, writing: “First transgender woman world champion…ever.”

“We cannot have a woman legally recognized as a trans woman in society, and not be recognized that way in sports,” McKinnon told USA Today.

“Focusing on performance advantage is largely irrelevant because this is a rights issue. We shouldn’t be worried about trans people taking over the Olympics. We should be worried about their fairness and human rights instead.”

In other words, screw biology. Let’s make all our decisions based on feels instead.

There’s a reason why we have divisions and weight classes in sports. Otherwise, 250-pound ex-cons named Butch would be getting into the octagon with 5’4” soccer moms who “thought this would be fun.” Divisions and weight classes are there to make sure nobody has an unfair advantage. Like a guy in lady clothes steamrolling over biologically inferior females on a bicycle.

Yep, we have to completely ignore the bulge in “her” tights and herald her as the peak of female athleticism. Because “rights.” The real women who gave it their all and pedaled their keisters off will just have to deal with it. Pathetic.
