Good article, Fender. Maybe things are changing with players telling the truth about their team and being outspoken about leaving. And Coaches like Tomlin speaking the obvious about the lack of diversity being consciously done. There is no way Don Staley is a better candidate than Eric Bieniemy. But he is a better “look” for LA/Spanos (a mini McVee look). The NFL is just a huge,vastly white corporation. Slogans are great...Football is Family....We Care....but they're marketing promos.
“We, the National Football League, condemn racism and the systematic oppression of Black people,” he said in the video. “The league admit
we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage
all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the NFL, believe Black Lives Matter.”
What has the NFL done, politically, to prevent another George Floyd event happening this week? Nothing. But issuing another statement. Maybe.
Ps. Sorry If my response dooms these posts to the political forum. I think life should go ahead, not behind, Football.
Can't figure out how the line through text happen. But it looks good.
