Should the NFL be government regulated???

Postby seeinred » Thu Feb 02, 2017 9:29 am

So our EXTREMELY BUSY President seems to have some opinions he feels he needs to express publicly about the NFL's commissioner.
The title here may be a bit of a stretch, but WTF is our Prez's motivation here???? Are we looking at an executive oversight committee soon to be formed?
Personally, if I were Kraft, Bellicheck, or Brady, I'd be embarrassed to be swooned over publicly by this boob.
And as much as I hate Ray Rice and what he did, didn't he already serve his punishment?
Why is he being called out in front of the world by our Nation's President now?

I just can't see how anyone on this planet other than Trump and his Trumpets thinks that this presidency thing is going well... :eh?:

He's run out of countries to piss off so he's going after sports leagues now?

Loser Goodell. :L:
Don't look at me, I just work here.

Or maybe he's just trying to assert a strong position from which to negotiate future deals?

With the NFL???
How should he be negotiating, or giving strong opinions on negotiations in the NFL?
He is the POTUS!!!
Not the NFL Commish...
Stay the F out of our beloved sport!!!!

No...definitely not the NFL or much of anything else.

Less gov't...not more.

Apologies for the misunderstanding

I wonder if the Falcons win, will the City of Atlanta lose all Federal Funding and the Refs be publicly scrutinized and then audited by the IRS???

I think Trump is still harboring a grudge against the NFL establishment from the 1980's when he tried to muscle into the league through the USFL.

You may indeed be correct, but I think his remarks regarding Goodell are more in the support of Brady.

I somewhat agree with you on that Bick, but my point is that he is the POTUS. Everything he says will have LARGE SCALE CONSEQUENSES intended or not. If it's you or I stating that Goodell is an idiot, that's fine and no one worries one second about it. However, when the POTUS publicly demonizes him, that is a VERY different thing!

You'll get no disagreement on that from me or most anyone else who posts here on that issue.

Trump will put his foot in his mouth WAY more than any other president ever, and will be right up the with the biggest loud-mouths in the world. And there will be consequences for him doing it.

Pro sports enjoy anti-trust exemptions that are not present in any other industry. I have no sympathy for them.
I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.

We only started hearing about fake news when we elected a fake president.
