Why should NFL players stay out in the political arena?
It seems like every day brings new revelations of Trump’s collusion and obstruction of justice and the continuing efforts of the NFL to keep the players from participating in the 2017 Super Bowl LI.
The NFL has been the focus of a long and complex political investigation by the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee and the House Oversight Committee.
But it seems the NFL has largely avoided the spotlight.
It has taken a very different tack in recent weeks.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Thursday that the NFL is trying to “determine whether or not it is appropriate to have players in the Super Bowl.”
The NFL declined to comment on the report.
Former NFL player Adam Schein reported on Friday that he’s told former President Donald Trump that he is being “tortured” by the league.
In a statement, the NFL said that it is aware of Adam Scheiner’s comments and is taking steps to address them.
But the league also added that “the NFL’s rules regarding our players do not permit players to participate in certain sporting events, and the league’s policy on the matter is consistent with its own code of conduct.”
The NFL and Trump have engaged in an ugly back-and-forth over the past week.
The two men have been engaged in a Twitter war for days over the NFL’s decision to host the 2017 game.
The president tweeted on Monday: “NFL teams are being forced to make decisions that negatively impact the national interest and the well-being of their players.
Their owners, owners, are paying the price.
They can’t keep playing games that are political in nature!”
Trump has been a strong supporter of the players, calling them “stupid” and “criminals.”
But the president has also called the league a “disgrace” and said he would cut off its subsidies.
The NFL responded to Trump by saying it would “fight for the very rights that have been stolen from us” by allowing players to take part in the game.
But that wasn’t enough for Trump.
In one tweet, he called the NFL “the greatest collective in the history of the world.”
In another, he suggested that the league was “playing for ratings, which will not be there for the NFL, which is a total and complete disgrace.
It will not sell.
It’s not worth it.”
