Trump asks for change in United States tax laws for NFL

Trump asks for change in United States tax laws for NFL”

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say: 'Get that son of a b-- off the field right now, out, '" Trump said.

We as a team are very much on the page together, players and coaches will "under no circumstances" fail to "stand and recognize and honor the flag".

Goodell said chief executives and club presidents will "continue the unprecedented dialogue with our players".

Writing that he expects a "full and open discussion" of the issues next week in New York, Goodell closes with, "The NFL is at its best when we ourselves are unified". The controversy over the Anthem is a barrier to having honest conversations and making real progress on the underlying issues. The president has often centered himself amid the discourse, referring to protesting players "son [s] of bitch [es]" and fueling a discourse that has grown publicly divisive and strayed further and further from the players' intended message. He's planning on standing for the anthem if given the opportunity, "La Confora said of his talks with Kaepernick".

U.S. President Donald Trump says the National Football League should not be given tax breaks, stepping up his criticism of the world's top-grossing sports league over silent player protests during the national anthem. One NFL player told The Root that players who aren't first- or second-stringers are anxious about losing their roles or even their jobs if they defy orders and protest. His free agency has sparked questions about whether it's connected to his decision to kneel during the anthem last season. Per La Canfora, he was repeating earlier reports, likely from March when ESPN reported the QB had told others that he'd stand as felt his message on social inequality had already been affirmed. Three chose not to take the field before last Sunday's home win over the Titans. "The commissioner and owners do want players to stand". Each of them has made clear they are patriotic. They do have respect for the flag. And I think fans are frustrated.

And, some would argue, for the league to get Trump off its back.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Jones" comments Monday, claiming the owner believed the "controversy would "go away' " after a recent game in which Jones knelt with his team before the anthem.
