  • I hope you didn't burn your NFL shirt, this is why Trump is attacking the NFL.

    THE REAL REASON DONALD TRUMP IS TARGETING NFL OWNERS RATHER THAN PROTESTING PLAYERS

    The USFL had favored a conservative and patient approach to challenging the NFL’s dominance, but Trump had other ideas. Once he joined the USFL, he spearheaded an effort to move its football season from the spring to the fall, so that they could compete head-on with the NFL. It was a complete disaster.

    Then, with Trump again at the forefront, the USFL sued the NFL for having an illegal monopoly. This time they were victorious. After five days of deliberation, the jury ruled in the USFL’s favor and awarded them $1 for damages. Thanks to the Sherman Antitrust Act, that dollar was automatically tripled to $3. However, that windfall was not enough to save the USFL, which was broke by 1986 and dissolved.

    ...

    In 2014, he [Trump] attempted to join the NFL’s ownership class once and for all by buying the Buffalo Bills for $1 billion.

    Public perception of Trump aside, he was outbid by real estate mogul Terry Pegula, leading to one of his [Trump's] trademark Twitter tirades arguing that the new owners had overpaid for the team, that the game itself had gotten too “soft,” and that owners were not smart or tough enough to make the sport itself a “winner.”

    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
    The @nfl games are so boring now that actually, I’m glad I didn’t get the Bills. Boring games, too many flags, too soft!
    10:12 AM - Oct 13, 2014

    There must a dozen videos of people burning their NFL gear, just because Trump lost both the USFL and the bid for the Buffalo Bills.
    Suckers!!!

      IF and when the Trump followers figure out what a scumbag Trump really is, Trump will need Political asylum in Moscow.

        So the damages in the 1984 case were $1 but they were tripled (Treble damages) to $3. The NFL lawyer reached across the aisle and handed Trump's lead USFL attorney $5 and said - "Keep the change."

          And then Trump lost a bid for the Buffalo Bill's and he has been pissed ever since.

          Then when his health care bill was dying on the vine, he used the NFL as a distraction and thousands of fans burned their jerseys in protest.

          All because Trump wanted to get even for his losses to the NFL.

            Football is a second tier sport, so don't really care.
            Here's a joke you might not laugh at:
            All the poorest work the hardest for the smallest
            Do what you got to do

              Ratings would disagree with your assessment. The primary driver for the recent increases in the NFLs popularity is fantasy football.

                Maybe globally...but not here in the USA. Let me know when MLS or even the premier league matches the number of viewers the NFL pulls in here in the US.

                  While NFL ratings dwarf ANYTHING else on TV, their ratings have seen a precipitous drop in the last 2 seasons. This year they are down anywhere from 7-19% versus last year. 2016 was down anywhere from 6-12% versus 2015.

                  There is a problem with NFL ratings, the protests are part of it and the league is scrambling to address it.

                  As to the OP's story, laughable. DT has bigger fish to fry. He is turning back Obama's anti-energy policies.

                    LOL at the left. Everything bad (or that they don't like) is Trump's fault.
                    From the corruption in Puerto Rico to the black racists in the NFL. Blame Trump.

                      Racist Black Tennessee Titans Player Says He’ll Quit The NFL If Forced To Stand For The Anthem

                      Tennessee Titans player Rishard Matthews tweeted Thursday that he’ll quit the NFL if the league implements a rule forcing players to stand during the anthem.

                      “No I will be done playing football,” Matthews tweeted and ultimately deleted when asked if he would be willing to face punishment for not standing if a new rule is implemented.

                        His actions don't agree with you. Maybe he should shut his trap and get off the NFL twitter rants....because he sure does seem to be spending time on it. Or did you miss that?

                          Not really. He tweets, the left driven media starts flipping out, he makes a few comments and rescinds another Obama executive order. I am solid with it.
