ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I’m an NFL fan but I’m no fan of Commissioner Roger Goodell or the NFL hierarchy. Let’s just say I’m paying attention and I think someone needs to explain to these protesting players that Mr. Goodell himself is their worst enemy.

Every time Mr. Goodell persecutes a player they are guilty, period. There is no possible defense and most tribunals end up in a courtroom. My point is we’re talking social injustice by the czar himself, who changes the rules to fit his desired outcome.

NFL players and their representatives at NFLPA need to begin educating players about their own brand of social injustice. It’s homegrown and out of control. Taking a knee for the National Anthem and the flag? What does that accomplish? I’ll give them something to protest. How about starting with the obscene amount of compensation being given to Mr. Goodell and the unlimited powers he has on player matters?
