Then, on Friday, Goodell took a different stance - bluntly admitting the National Football League was wrong for not listening to peaceful protests from players in the past. They want a public condemnation of racism and oppression and they want the National Football League to admit they were wrong in banning players from peaceful protest.
The league further noted that teams can have up to 100 people in their facilities at any one time (subject to state and local regulations, of course). "We, the National Football League, believe Black Lives Matter", the National Football League stated.
Friday afternoon, National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell responded. "We, the National Football League, believe black lives matter". "In particular, black people in our country", Goodell said. We are listening. I am listening. The quarterback continues to be on the outside of the league looking in, and if a team were to take the step of signing him, it might go a long way towards showing that the league really is listening to its players.Читайте также: Xbox One S All Digital — Promo Xbox
The statement was a response to quarterback Drew Brees, who apologised this week for equating the kneeling protest with disrespecting the United States flag. They have every right to be upset because they haven't just been telling us this the last few weeks. "For one of us to be murdered by police brutality?"
Goodell claimed the league would be reaching out to players that have spoken out on the current issues. We are listening. I am listening.
"He's responding to what players have said, not to the player who started it all, Colin Kaepernick".
His choice to kneel during the national anthem caused controversy across the country. We should be standing up straight and tall, ideally with a salute, or a hand on heart. On Friday, Trump said Brees should not have apologized.
"OLD GLORY is to be revered, cherished, and flown high", Trump wrote. The kneeling protests ignited a fierce debate, with critics arguing they were disrespectful to the flag and the military.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
