Was NFL Commissioner Goodell on DRUGS during this Press Conference?
The NFL’s metrosexual eunuch, Roger Goodell held a press conference.
Most of America thought the press conference would be Goodell announcing that the NFL no longer allowed its “thugletes” to take a knee during the national anthem.
Goodell showed no such leadership.
The transcript reads as follows:
The NFL is concerned with issues in the communities. Then there are communities, issues, communities, communities, issues, issues, communities’ issues.
We wanted to address the issues in our communities, and the players issues in the communities, communities, issues, communities, issues, communities, issues.
Who wouldn’t want to see issues, communities’ issues, the issues in our communities addressed.
The NFL is committed to addressing issues in the communities, communities, issues, communities, communities, issues, issues, communities’ issues. And this meeting with the players was a step in that direction for the issues in our communities.
Issues, issues, issues. Issues in the communities, communities, issues, communities, communities, issues, issues, communities’ issues, the issues in our communities. Issues in the communities, communities, issues, communities, issues, communities, issues, issues, communities’ issues, the issues in our communities. Issues in the communities, communities, issues, communities, communities, issues, issues, communities’ issues, the issues in our communities. Issues, issues, issues.
Over the course of about 20 minutes before the press, Goodell used the same two words no fewer than 45 times.
I’m convinced that these sports leagues look for the “most presentable white dude” to run these organizations, and we believe they’re competent. This certainly explains the last 8 years of Obama.
As for Goodell’s competence, look at the numbers.
Over the first six weeks, NFL ratings are down 7.5 percent as compared to last season, per Nielsen. That’s not a huge dip, until you note the trend.
The NFL ratings are down 18.7 percent from the 2015 season.
What does Goodell blame for the fall in ratings from the 2015 season? The Presidential election.
When considering the trajectory of the NFL, a league in need of Viagra, note how much money Goodell has made.
According to ESPN, his salary since 2006 has topped $212 million, meaning that not only has he earned more than any player in the NFL in that time span, he’s also earned more than all but two athletes in all of North American major sports.
Given the ratings for the league over the past few years, one must wonder how Goodell hasn’t been cut. Ok, at least benched?
Instead of looking at the NFL like a real business, the man now allows the inmates to run the asylum. Goodell obviously believes,
“To hell with the fans. If the thugletes want to disrespect the country, the anthem, the flag, veterans, the fans, and the game, then so be it. JUST PAY ME!”
Over the last two days Goodell has huddled with NFL team owners and the Players Association. Speaking to the press about how he intends to salvage the season, Goodell said exactly nothing.
Things won’t get better for the NFL unless they stop the madness of kneeling. They must then apologize to the nation, and beg for forgiveness.
We reported on ticket sales, and the notion that somebody needs to send a medic to the NFL fast:
The National football league feels the “Trump effect.” But not like we Conservatives. For the NFL, the Trump Effect means BAD news.
The patient was sick, and have been for some time. However, ever since the president called out the NFL for their blatant disrespect for our flag and country, ticket sales and player endorsements have plummeted.
The Washington Examiner reports:
The online ticket reseller TickPick told Secrets that sales have dropped 17.9 percent, far more than the usual Week Three fall.
- 17.9 percent decrease in NFL orders this week compared to the previous week.
- Last year the drop was 10.8 percent in orders on Monday & Tuesday following Week Three games.
“We have seen a massive decrease in NFL ticket purchases this past week in comparison to years past. Week 3 seems to usually have less ticket orders than week 2, but this year ticket purchases are down more than 7 percent from this time last year,” said TickPick’s Jack Slingland.
So tickets sales are in the tank, and ratings are even more embarrassing. It’s early in the season and things are bad. We documented this year’s season opener as one of the worst in years.
Goodell is compensated too much for the triage to continues.
His future lies in the balance, whether he knows it or not.
Commissioner Roger Goodell, several prominent NFL owners and a handful of players were among the 20 to 30 people at a meeting Tuesday night in New York to discuss players kneeling during the national anthem and other relevant subjects facing the league.
The meeting focused on what the league was going to do moving forward and how to approach player protests, according to New York Giants linebacker and defensive captain Jonathan Casillas, who attended the gathering in Manhattan.
It came after a weekend in which players knelt or locked arms — some didn’t even come out of the locker room — during the anthem. The strong display was in large part a response to President Donald Trump’s recent comments about the league and players who didn’t stand for the anthem.
“You got to see opinions from the owners and from the players as well,” Casillas said. “Stuff like that is very good, very proactive. Thank Trump for saying what he said because without him saying that, (1) the whole league wouldn’t have been so collectively together, (2) we would’ve never had a meeting.”
If things don’t change in the next couple of weeks, you will see wholesale changes to the league. And Goodell will be forced to take a stance or forced out.
