NFL Commissioner Calls For Kaepernick To Help The League Be Better SJWs
If you needed another reason not to watch the NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has provided us all with another one. Goodell is now encouraging a team to take on Colin Kaepernick and that's only the beginning. Goodell also wants Kaepernick to guide the league on social justice issues... Goodell said as much during an interview on ESPN.
"Well, listen, if he wants to resume his career in the NFL, then obviously it's going to take a team to make that decision," Goodell said. "But I welcome that, support a club making that decision and encourage them to do that.
"If his efforts are not on the field but continuing to work in this space, we welcome him to that table and to help us, guide us, help us make better decisions about the kinds of things that need to be done in the communities. We have invited him in before, and we want to make sure that everybody's welcome at that table and trying to help us deal with some very complex, difficult issues that have been around for a long time.
"But I hope we're at a point now where everybody's committed to making long-term, sustainable change."
"Goodell appears to be toeing the line as favorability toward Kaepernick's kneeling movement has jumped significantly since the death of George Floyd, who died after former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes.
A majority of Americans, 52%, now believe it is OK for NFL players to protest by kneeling during the anthem — up by nearly double since Kaepernick's time in the league.
As protests and riots erupted across the country over Floyd's death and Kaepernick's kneeling movement gained support, Goodell looked to make amends with the black community."
Looks like the NFL is practically welcoming Kapernick back with open arms. Ticket sales look to have dropped over a million since the NFL allowed Kapernick to kneel at games, but ratings have not dropped as much as you might expect. I guess the general public is still watching the NFL from their homes despite the league's stance on respecting the flag.
