NFL Commissioner

The NFL Commissioner is an official person who is responsible for officiating the operations of this league.

Since 2006, Roger Goodell is the Commissioner of NFL who is performing exceptionally good work.

The first commissioner of this league was Elmer Layden who was elected way back in 1941.

After that, there are a variety of other people worked for this post that includes Bert Bell, Pete Rozette, Paul Tagliabue, & many more. As of 2017 records, the annual salary of present Commissioner is US$ 31 million.

The present commissioner doesn’t have much popularity among the fans. There are three major areas overseen by the NFL Commissioner that we have stated below:

Making negotiation with the media partners- It is the main part of where the majority of league’s revenue generated. The commissioner should take care of this part properly.

Making negotiation with the staff & players union- This duty has the utmost importance as it keeps the cost of control. Furthermore, contacts offer a great number of benefits to the league.

During the last negotiation, the present commissioner Goodell slaughtered the players, and that’s why he is performing wonderfully.

Nfl Commissioner customer care number 7714
Maintaining proper quality-
This duty can be performed by making some new rules, implementing them & slapping the players, etc.

The main duty of the NFL commissioner here is to ensure the quality of the play should be maintained properly.

Additionally, there are many other duties that a commissioner performs.

It saddens me as an educator for 27 years that the NFL players took a knee during the National Anthem. To the coaches and players, you are a disgrace to our future children of America. You are suppose to be role models for our youth, but instead you chose to disrespect our country. Men and Women have fought long and hard for your freedom and this is how you show your respect and honor to them. I would bet that at least 75% of you have received subsidy from the government but you can’t honor your country. I feel sorry for you that you have chosen to show your ignorance to our country. We should be teaching our children unity but instead you have taught them how to divide.

Waiting to see if both teams are matre enogh to come ot and stand for or nationa anthem. If either team fails to show p and stand, the game will not be watched in my home. I am only one individal with one opinion and one vote, bt I will strongly spport a national boycott of the NFL if players are catered to in their divisive and selfish protests sch as we witnessed this past weekend.

For the NFL to contenance sch divisiveness in beyond excsable. FYI I jst managed to witness a mch more respectable approach by both of tonight's teams. Goodell needs to b the adlt in the room and take a stand for honoring or nation's anthem and flag. Players need to protest in respectable forms not by their divisive, selfish disrespect.

I will contine to spport a national boycott of NFL games and players where or flag and anthem are denigrated in this appalling fashion.

Mr. Goodell, if you had anything close to a backbone you would contact all of the team owners and tell them that their players can protest in any way they want, as long as it's not on the football field. As for me, I make you this promise...I will not watch, listen, or even look up details of any NFL game until your players stop disrespecting the flag that soo many selfless men and women fought and/or gave their life for. Tell them to get their act together or eventually you will have no fans left, and therefore no income, and therefore no job.

I'm a dad of a minor tackle kid in Mineral Wells, TX and one of his coaches got suspended by the optimist clubs president for organized practice just because he had a couple of friends over. Does that not go against everything play 60 is about. We are wondering if it's even legal to play with our kids in the front yard with this organization. Please respond. Don't seem so optimist to us, bout to pull our kids out of football.

Texans/Patriots. Once again, disrespect as the National Anthem is played. One player displayed a clenched fist. I changed the channel. I will never watch the NFL or any other sport/game where this is allowed. No kneeling, no sitting, no raised fist. This is the 4th game I intended to watch that ended with a changed channel. At some point I will stop being a fan and find a sport that does not disrespect the Nation's symbols.

I am protesting myself. After watching pro ball for 40 years, I will never watch another game because you are a completely worthless American. If you and your boy Colin were on a battlefield then that may be true Americans have been. Then you might have some idea what we are talking about? Of course, you wouldn't make it long because you would be catching rounds from both sides. I am completely disgusted by your pestilence on this once great country.

Its about time, the NFL takes a stance against these players who disrespected the people who have served and protected these million dollar cry babies. Ask them who indirectly pays their salaries, the people who spend their hard earned money to watch ego maniacs that make a thousand times more than the average American. If everyone boycotted the NFL and they lost their jobs they might think twice how to respect this country and thank this country for life style. They have been blessed when many Americans go hungry every night or bed to sleep in.

The more players kneel, the more games I turn off. Your spineless response will destroy the fan base and viewer ratings. This is America as if they don't like our country, tell them to move to Uganda and earn a multi million dollar salary there.
Stop political correctness.

I have been a football fan for 50 years. I lived in the shadow of the Orange Bowl. The Miami Dolphins players were bigger than life. I love football. But I no longer feel the same way. I will no longer watch football since the disrespect of the NFL and the players is no longer acceptable.

Mr. Goodell,
The rest of America doesn't get to exploit their workplace to express their political views and I fail to comprehend why the NFL allows its employees to do so?
I watch football to get away from things like political activism, as despite from an ever-deteriorating on slaught.
I will no longer be watching or participating in any commerce related to the NFL until it returns to being apolitical once again.

The NFL must be asleep at the wheel. Despite his right to protest to not respect the country in which he resides, he is grossly out of line. I hope the fans boycott these self agrandizing people. Maybe we can buy a ticket for him to move to Syria. I am glad to College football is in full swing.

Please continue your protest by not standing during anthem. Not only is this in poor taste, it gives the NFL black eye. It just really shows how these overpaid players have forget where they came from and how they got there? Then to top it off you threaten to fine players who where 9/11 cleates? Why don't you move your league and play in Syria, Afgahnistan, Iraq, since you want to cater to Muslim practices, you should live in those countries that support anti American activities. Oh that's right, it was a police protest, well hopefully if the police is ever needed by any of the players/staff, I hope the police stand in protest and watch, better yet just sit and watch, because you don't deserve and police intervention but they won't because they take an oath to protect and serve, which is more than I can say about the overpaid losers in the nfl. I'm done watching and going to any games, enjoy your protest Kaepernick.

Hello Mr. Goodell, I am a big Oakland Raiders fan and I would like to know if you can help our city of Oakland with keeping the raiders here? Please, I know that its out of your hands but we want them to stay. Please, if you can do anything that would be awesome.

We will not watch another Broncos or other NFL broadcast as long as a player is not standing for the Anthem. This is players freedom of speech whereas our freedom is not to watch games anymore. We have been diehard fans since moving to Colorado in 1978, but now no more. Will not buy any of your sponsors’ products or any NFL products. It appears that ratings are down all over the league, so somebody ought to get a clue that disrespecting our flag is not the way to bring attention to a problem. The black community needs to look within their community and blame black on black crime before they blame police officers who are trying to protect them. Hands up, don’t shoot is really fake and in same way Baltimore officers indicted is a fake. These rich spoiled brats ought to get involved with solving the problems within their communities that are fostered by their leaders who work hard to keep them on the plantation.

Thank you for taking the time to read my email. I wish to voice my concern on the NFL taking a stance on players wishing to wear cleats to honor 9/11, yet but not on players sitting in protest on our National Anthem. It is much hypocrite? Nice to see the NFL's ratings slipping down.

George Fogg says:

Posted on Sep 22, 2016 at 10:14 AM

He does not have the right to express his opinions in the work place. Doesn't stand and doesn't play. He should be banned along with all the other protesters. You made Dallas remove stickers for honoring police and allowed some misguided fool make a mockery of the flag.

The NFL not taking the American Flag's matter into their own hands shows that they are a coward and traitor to America and Americans. Love it or leave it. Send the message.

This is disgraceful. The fact that the NFL, Commissioner and team owners are allowing their employees to openly disgrace law enforcement and the great men and women that serve our country is shameful.

From this point forward, I will not attend nor watch nor will I purchase anything related to the NFL. My kids feel the same way as I do and are boycotting the league.

If these players want to do something political or for a cause, let them do it on their own time. The fans that pay their salary shouldn't have to be put up with this end, I'm guessing, more and more won't stand for it.

Grab your issues, I was in shop checking out and the cashier asked me how is everything going at the veterans hospital. This little kid behind me asked if I helped animals. I said no that I work with Marines, soldiers, sailors and airmen and women. He asked, if I could teach him how to salute so I asked why? He said that It is why his daddy isn't here anymore because while he was at war he saluted the best and God took him so he could salute God everyday and when he grows up he wants to be with his daddy and salute God everyday. I cried and taught him how to salute.

This is why it is disgraceful for the players who are kneeling down or sitting down during the national anthem. The flag represents all American impacted by war.

Mr. Commissioner,

After being an avid fan of the NFL for over 50 years. I am done now. No more buying tickets for live games, no more buying gear and no more watching it on TV.

As a fan of football, it has provided many aspects of enjoyment and entertainment. It also insulated me from the decaying world around me that had pandered endlessly to nonsense and injustices.

I waited and hoped the NFL would take a stand against the growing disrespect for our flag and all the good it stood for.

But you failed. You have your rights and reasons for your decision and the players have theirs. The fans can also weigh in on the matter. You see I vote with my dollars and other forms of support.

You have now lost me with my dollars, my viewing and any form of backing the NFL. I know others who feel same.

You apparently don't understand the demographic of your audience and may have bet on the wrong horse. I expect and hope your TV ratings to continue to spiral down.

A former NFL fan
Ed Lynch.

I grew up watching the NFL as an only child watching it with my father. It was very cool knowing more than most guys in my school and I truly loved it. But now you have these idiots sitting during our anthem and you call that progress. Well I am here to tell you that you are a disgrace and so are the boys taking a knee. My father that taught me the game was in the military for 25 years and in two wars. My grandfather was in World War II and was shot twice so while you call it progress, I call it a national disgrace. I am done with this game until this stops because this is no longer America's game until the flag is respected.

To whom it may concern,

I have been watching the NFL for 37 years. I have purchased cable packages to get the NFL network and the Sunday ticket. I have went to NFL games around the country and was a season ticket holders last year.

The lack of respect that many players have for our country is disturbing to me. So, I am done with supporting these very privileged people. They are part of the problem and not the solution. That's my opinion. Its been fun. I will support college programs like Virginia Tech basketball team with link below( That's leadership and representative of my family and friends that have and are currently serving our great country. My money will be better spent elsewhere.

Dear Mr. Commissioner,
I have watched the side show that has been going on with the players at the playing of the National Anthem. I am disappointed that this distraction has been allowed to proceed without your intervention. This is not good for the NFL. This is not good for America, its heritage, and its veterans. A player cannot dance in the end zone without a penalty. How can this be? I have lost confidence in the NFL. No respect here, sadly. Please, do something.


Posted on Sep 22, 2016 at 04:47 AM

Isn't it time for the commissioner to declare that NFL players be required to show their respect for the American Flag? He is dishonoring all servicemen and women who have served and those who have given their lives for their country by condoning the conduct of some whining players who are not worth of any one service person. As a concerned citizen who has served his country, I protest in action.

I am a Giants fan and have watched the NFL on TV for years however, that is going to change. If any player or any team will disrespect our National Anthem in any manner, I will not be watching that game. These players who disrespected the National Anthem should be sent to the locker room and should not be allowed to play.

Robin Briand says:

Posted on Sep 22, 2016 at 03:38 AM

My husband and I are die-hard football fans who never miss watching games and buying NFL related items. This email is meant to inform you that if the NFL does not do something about players taking a knee during the National Anthem, we will not watch or support the NFL any way. Could you consider playing the National Anthem before the players take the field? You must take a stand and do it soon. Without the money and support of the fans, your organization will crumble. We support our country more than we do the NFL. Shame on you and your organization.

You should set the schedule for all opponents to play American Football Conference (AFC), National Football Conference (NFC) for the first two weeks on the season. I don't think there should be division games until the teams are rolling in season mode. Everyone knows in the beginning of the season the guys are not at top so I feel it would be a good idea to have out of division games for 2 weeks to get them in football mode especially since practices are limited with the NFL players association if I am correct. So have them get use to football in games that don't really affect the NFC or AFC.

Mark Suesz says:

Tired of everything in America being politicized. Now its getting to sports. Like many I will just stop watching if things continue with all the National Anthem protests and everything else. I already quit listening to ESPN radio because it is all political. Hope, I don't have to do the same with my favorite sport. There are plenty of people in this country on both sides of every issue. We don't need the NFL gets involved.

Well Roger, since you have come out in support of Colin Kaepernick and others not standing and raising fists during the National Anthem, it is obvious that you don't care about the thousands of emails you have received in protest of your stance. It is time for the former NFL fans to take their protests to the next level to the sponsors. We will no longer purchase their products until they stand with the fans and against the NFL's shameful policies on respect for the flag and police.

Phil says:

I am writing to express my disdain of anti-American and disrespectful behavior of NFL players to the flag or the national anthem and to all those who have served in the military and the police. I will not watch any NFL games of teams that allow spoiled ingrates protest without condemnation of their actions. It is their right to protest and it is the NFL and the commissioner and owners day to condemn these acts of disrespect. I will not watch NFL games of teams that have anti-american, anti-flag and anti-anthem protests.

Terry says:

My friends and I will be boycotting all NFL games as long as the players are disrespecting the American flag. Here are those grown up men sitting and making millions of dollars just by playing a game. I see the ratings are down by 10% already and will drop more.

Dear NFL, I am a life long fan and has just stopped watching the games. You control so much to protect your image, yet you allowed players to protest this country on your time and your dollar.

I will not be watching any more games until you crack down on the protests. Its not about free speech. Its about individuals at work sing your forum for their personal agenda.

Patrick turner says:

Posted on Sep 22, 2016 at 01:05 AM

Well, I am saddened by your comments on these people disrespecting our flag. I can't believe you are in this position and allowed this kind of disrespect. You should be ashamed off. I don't think you have any morals whatever it may concern. I am done with your league and I am so happy to see that people are leaving as well. Hopefully, the NFL will lose everything. They definitely need to fire and make these players act appropriately. You should also be terminated along with your damn pension.

I have one question for you, sir. Can you please explain to me, how you can spend so much time and energy on a deflated football and no time for investigating the potential long term consequences of inappropriate demonstrations that only polarize people and can change football forever in a most negative way? I would really like to know. You are obviously not a football man but simply a corporate lawyer who has no interest or perhaps do not have the ability to recognize consequences for your actions against the NFL fan.

You may simply delete this or it may not even reach you after being called by one of your staff. In either case, I will not be surprised if you or someone in your office express some kind of hateful comment and are ridiculous to me in some way for saying the following and it may even be illegal in the near future to say this, but I say to you:

God Bless you and God Bless those who have been led by lies, so as to protest things that make them free. And God Bless Americans who risk their lives making it possible for you to live in safety and God bless those who have a job, the American consumer, who pay for your executive lifestyle.

God bless you,

I may, seemingly, be only one, but there are millions like me, who have become disgusted with political correctness and the inappropriate places to express their hate.

We will leave the NFL in legion, if you do not start acting like a responsible representative of the business you run. Your sponsors will not spend advertising dollars with a company losing its audience (customers).

As soon as sponsors see viewing numbers drop, you will not have the billions of dollars which provides you with power you seem to relish so much. Keep in mind, the real power is in the hands of the customer.

If you continue to allow hate filled demonstrations against the National Anthem, the flag, the Police, in other words America, you will not have an NFL nor anyone will watch, because your audience will leave you to yourselves.

The “PC Snowflakes” may yell the loudest but the percentages are not in their favor. They are not in the majority and most don’t spent money on much of anything. The working man is the one who spends his money on a tickets or in a bar, buying beer, in either place. They are the ones at whom the ads for cars, trucks, beer, etc. are aimed. They are the ones who support the NFL with hard dollars. The PC stay home and whine and think of ways to make the rest of us as unhappy as they are.

My imagination can’t comprehend a stadium fill with the PC Snowflakes, drinking green tea. When will the NFL stop keeping score to make it fair? Keep listening to them and there will be outcries for a “safe place” for players and fans to go if one player tackles a teeny weeny bit too hard.

The majority are us, the ones who believe that football needs to be about football, and politics and social issues need to be addressed in their proper forums. More and more will quietly walk out on you and you will wonder where they went. We are not the loud mouth, noisy few, but the many with strong will.

George Sabatier says:

Posted on Sep 21, 2016 at 11:26 PM

The bars that usually fill up for games have dropped in clientele and revenue, on game day. That is community revenue not being generated due to this selfish act of hate. People are staying at home or doing something besides watching football. This trend will surely continue. The NFL is responsible for countless millions of dollars being spent in a community. If people are driven away, because you prefer to appease a few spoiled brats, you can accept responsibility for some small businesses closing their doors. You have a financial responsibility, not only to the investors in the NFL franchises, but to the businesses that depend on the NFL season for a substantial portion of their total yearly income. If you allow these snowflakes to continue with their PC behavior, it will have an economic impact that some small business will not be able to endure.

Beer sales will drop and as we know, beer companies spend a lot of their advertising budget on the NFL. Will they be happy? I think not.

Thank you,
Mr. Goodell

There are many avenues for any celebrity to express their political and social views. To allow the use of anything associated with the game for a controversial demonstration of hate toward our flag, police, etc., is to guarantee the demise of the NFL.

I will not ever waste my time and spend my money to watch a single episode of this nonsense. I am not alone, I assure you.

Thank you,

For generations, the game has been the Monday morning discussion around water coolers all over America. Bets made on Friday were paid off, new discussions began about next weeks game and everyone went back to their humdrum work, anticipating the next weekend of watching their guys entertain with their skills. Now, the discussion is about some idiot hating our country. Monday morning quarterbacking has turned into either no comments, to avoid an argument or if comments are make, into potentially violent situations. The ticket prices were once worth it as were the TV sports packages. We wanted to watch all we could. Now, I will not pay a dime for any of this, knowing you have lost your grip on a small group of malcontents.

Fans will not continue going to games, or watching Football on TV, if forced to watch these antics and to hear cowardly announcers and commentators praise this juvenal behavior because they heard the Commissioner give praise to the one who started it. We know the real reason he started this sitting during the Anthem.

Thank you,
George Sabatier.

The NFL, as all sports is designed to be for entertainment. It is where we go to get away from the day in and day out bad news, personal problems, rotten politics and our ongoing daily stress. Sports is where we go to relax and be entertained by these remarkable athletes. It is where we meet family, friends and strangers to cheer, curse, argue and enjoy the battle together. The only allowable hate in sports is for Referees, Umpires, Coaches we can call a better game than and opposing Quarterbacks who throw for 5 touchdowns against our team. But, it is all in fun, not true hatred, as is being expressed towards police, which is what all of today’s sitting, kneeling and anti Police commenting is about. Sports brings us together. Your unwise expression of “praise” for this illegitimate behavior, tears people apart and is the fast lane for the demise of the NFL. Now that this has began and is not being properly controlled by management, there are those who genuinely hate because someone else dared say they disagreed with a protest against our Nation.

Thank you, Mr. Goodell.

I will not purchase a cap or t-shirt or anything from my own team because some of the proceeds go to the NFL and they help advertise a company that does not have the testicle fortitude to keep political/social bullying, hate speech, out of football games.

I have already turned ESPN off, completely, because of their extremist, ultra-left wing leanings and for the firing of staff who do not fit in with the politically correct hate speech that has now become the norm for this network. The only people left to watch are not worth their paychecks or my time and apparently the time of a few million others who have cut the network out of their cable, satellite plans.

I suggest you research how many viewers have already left ESPN and wisely interpret this trend as a warning that you, Mr. Roger Goodell, will be responsible for killing the best sport that has ever been, unless you start acting like a responsible leader.

The NFL has drifted into dangerous waters, with you complementing a childish, attention seeking, America hating, player who says loudly, with his pig socks.

I will watch teams like the Steelers and Redskins, who showed brave patriotism by holding our flag; the one that represents all Americans, regardless of race, color or creed, during the National Anthem. However, I will continue turning my TV off during commercials, as long as the NFL allows other players, in any of the weekly games, to show disrespect to their fellow Americans during this moment that represents the meaning of the National Anthem and Flag. This moment is opportunity for a group of people, thousands in the stands and millions watching on TV, who are about to watch or become gladiators in a war of sorts, to come together in the appreciation of all who made this a great and free nation, through heroic efforts and sacrifices in real war, especially those, (of all ethnicities), who died or were injured, defending the freedom of these selfish children who mistakenly believe they are entitled to. This moment is representative remembrance of the meaning of the Flag and National Anthem. I will watch a team like Seattle, who demonstrated unity during our National Anthem.

Monday night, this was usually a popular place and is now totally empty. When I arrived about 10 minutes before the Bears/Eagles game. The bartender and I were the only two there until one couple arrived before the National Anthem. They are huge fans of the game but they left after seeing the three fists raised in the air, during the National Anthem. We surmised, this fist display was to declare the three millionaires hatred of police, America or whatever is popular to protest today or whatever George Soros’ paid organization instructed them to protest. I left right after too. I would rather read a book than watching the NFL, not just allowing but encouraging hatred and division in American sports and I have no desire to witness this.

I am still a fan of football and the talent of the young men in it. All of the talent and most of the individual men deserve great respect. During the game, it is interesting to watch and share, with friends, family, neighbors, etc., the unbelievable moves made by such rare and extraordinarily gifted talent.

Dear Mr. Goodell.

I am writing this, with the knowledge that one letter from one NFL fan, (quickly becoming a former fan) will not matter to you or the owners.

However, with this in mind, I am still going to take the time (and my time is very valuable to me) to let you know that atleast one fan did not watch a single commercial during the NFL games this weekend, nor will I be watching any future commercials on NFL games, for which your sponsors pay millions of dollars. The commercials will be wasted with time and sponsor's dollar in my home because no one will see them. I have already changed my beer from a heavily advertised brand on NFL programming, to Pilsner Urquell, which I doubt is advertised during NFL games. But, then again I won’t know who is advertising on NFL games.

I will not be watching any games involving anyone, even a single player who demonstrates hate toward me, my country, the National Anthem, the Flag, the brave Armed Forces and Police, who incidentally risked their lives each day to keep these selfish, immature, pampered, celebrities, safe.

Mark says:

This is just to let you know that I and an ever growing number of Americans are fed up with the disrespect of our flag and what it represents? We are fed up with everyone and their opposite bias. If people would respect the law and our country they would not be shot. Why does no one have the guts to stand for what is truely right? I and many more are going to quit watching your games. I actually will consider trying to boycott the season if I do not see a sudden change in policy. You disrespect our military and everyone who has died for this country for what I consider total propaganda. Time to move on from this garbage. If a black man dies everyone pays attention why does that not happen for white people? If any man of any color puts his hands on his head no cop will shoot him. Simple solution don't be a loser and if you make that mistake and die, it was your choice. Where is the common sense? One less person to watch and I hope many more to follow.

Dear NFL,

Although, I am a football fan but there are two reasons why I will not be viewing/attending any NFL games this season:

1) Kaepernick
2) NFL unwilling to allow Blue Lives Matter for the Dalles police who died in the line of duty.

I love football and watch the NFL for over 30 years. However, I love my country more. Either take the disgusting politics and players protest away from the game or we, the fans will take the NFL out of our lives.

The players behavior is despicable and your encouragement is even worse. Shame on you.


Posted on Sep 21, 2016 at 08:48 PM

Dear Commissioner,

The point is that allowing the kneeling and fist raising angers many Americans deeply. It cannot be allowed on the field. If one wishes to protest, they can be permitted to do so in the locker room.

The disrespect is not acceptable and it cannot be allowed on the open field. Do something.

David Goble says:

Posted on Sep 21, 2016 at 08:27 PM

NFL Commissioner Goodell,
The protest of the National Anthem is a disgrace and offensive to the fans that do not appreciate your sanctioned disrespect. As a fan for 42 years, the NFL was a game that Americans took to work on Monday. It was above politics, no matter what team coworkers liked that is no longer the case. The NFL has entered taking sides in politics and the fans just want to watch football to get away from the politics. As long as the players protest my country, I will protest this league.

Robert Hart says:

Posted on Sep 21, 2016 at 08:26 PM

You need to pull your head out and stop this protest now or you will lose a ton of support from the fans. I have cancelled my NFL package for this year and will not buy a single piece of merchandise until you put a stop to this nonsense. I am a retired Air Force officer and currently working for civil service. I am not allowed to protest while at work and they should not be as well. I fought for 25 years in the military supporting free speech but this political crap at work needs to be stopped. If not, I will regret not watching football.

I am terribly angry with the stance the NFL has taken reference on the National Anthem. Start fining or impose some other bad actions now for those who sit, kneel or flash the racist black power sign. Otherwise, the NFL will lose four more fans immediately. You are really a coward.

Dear commissioner,

No more NFL for me until the oppression in America ceases. Blacks make up approx. 12% of the population, yet account for 68% of the players in the NFL. Until there is racial parity, I am done with your product.

I am a retired military officer, and although I have watched over the period of my life thousands of NFL football games. As of this date, I refuse to watch any more games that have social implications such as kneeling down during the national anthem. You just look me and others.

Mr. Commissioner,
We watch the NFL to escape and be entertained. The players are employees and I do not wish to know their politics. I have been to East Berlin when their was a wall, now that is oppression. I am an Army Brat and product of it, a person gets along no matter what. Yes, there is racism but it is improving. Dallas Cowboys, what about the stickers for the Cops? Crazy move to say no. I did not watch any games last weekend and will not in future.

Dear Commissioner,
I have been watching NFL games for the past 60 years for relaxation and entertainment. I will be damned, if I will support a league that doesn't have the fortitude to put a stop to million dollar players making political statements like "Black Lives Matter" and not standing for the National Anthem. Yet fine a player for patriotic football cleats and harass Tebow out of the game for religious beliefs. I am a Fireman/First Responder and Christian. I support the National Anthem and believe like Jesus Christ, All Lives Matter. I believe in everything the American Flag stands for, yet not perfect, that this is the greatest country in the world.
You will loose me soon if action is not taken to stop this cancer from spreading. I felt the Superbowl halftime entertainment last year was political, disrespectful, and disgraceful. If this disrespect is not resolved, I will move to another venue, like soccer.

Take them off the field and allow descent men to play who honor our flag, nation and all who defend it. I am so sad that this is how our nation respects our heros?

Joe Weldon says:

Posted on Sep 21, 2016 at 11:19 AM

Mr. Goodell,

The trend in society to disgrace our flag, anthem, police officers and military personnel is getting completely out of hand. The players actions are deplorable not progress. For the most part, the only oppression that exists today is that which is self imposed. Opportunity exists for anyone willing to work in this nation. While there are problems to be addressed in society, these players actions and your decision to back them are only going to make things more worse. I hope you will reconsider your decision.

NFL Commissioner Goodell,

If football players are employees of the league, then the league has a right to create rules that govern their behavior at the very least while they are at work. I believe you and the league lack integrity in prohibiting some things. I see as having positive value while allowing others that do not. Not honoring the national anthem is a behavior that really bothers me given what my father and uncles endured and lost during World War II. I could deal with your prohibiting all such behavior but can not tolerate your allowing the negative and prohibiting the positive. So, as much as I love watching football I will cease to do so until sanity and good behavior has returned to the sport I love. This is my loss and hopefully yours as well.

I find it ridiculous that with admission of the NFL that there is a link between playing football and some players contracting CTE, that league does not allow at least the testing of certain venues such as medical marijuana. Keep in mind that we are talking about the cbd part, not the thc part which is the part that gets people "high" always associated with pot. Peoples lives are at stake, and to me, an avid NFL fan, and fantasy football participant, I am seriously considering never watching or participating in anything to do with organized football, especially the NFL.

I spent 35 years of my life as a police officer and I had to take a disability retirement. I will never have the kind of money given to NFL players, however, my daily physical pain is comparable to theirs. I look back on my career with pride. I served for others and never harmed anyone that didn't try to harm me first. I will always love those soldiers, police officers, firemen, paramedics, doctors, RNs, teachers and everyone else that serves and works hard everyday for others. I want to believe that most of them feel as I do that bigotry has no place in America, however, we have to accept that we can never completely eliminate it, as hard as we may try. Sometimes bigotry and mental disease lies dormant and shows itself, inevitably, in horrible ways. However, not standing for the National Anthem when so many Americans have died protecting freedom is an affront. Why not spend some of the millions the NFL and players have towards promoting, teaching and helping to fix the problem? I will not help promote the NFL by watching games. Remember there is always going to be bad people, however, most.

I will turn off any game where I find the NFL disrespects our country. The NFL is in the entertainment business. If the NFL wants to show they care then do something to make things better. You have got the money, do some good with it. Quit complaining, put your money where your cheap actions are going on.

Brian says:

I will never watch any NFL game as long as these so called Americans are protesting and disrespecting the National Anthem. A player gets a 15 yard penalty for taunting another player whereas anti-American NFL players get praises from the commissioner for taunting the police and military. It is truly amazing. Now I am only watching college football.

To whom it may concern,

Due to the horrible disrespect by certain NFL players and teams shown to the nation and service personnel who fight for the player's freedoms, I will in no way support the NFL.

No merchandise purchases, no watching of any game and nothing. The NFL allows and supports sponsors who manufacture and sell their products in countries where freedom do not exist, murdering of dissidents is a common place, life style choices guarantee death.

The NFL commission are hypocrites one and all. The NFL is not a political organization and should be stripped off all exemptions for the refusal to support this country.

David says:

Posted on Sep 21, 2016 at 07:13 AM

I and my entire family will be boycotting the NFL games with all your merchandise and products that are sponsored by the NFL or those who sponsors the NFL. It is disgraceful that you take a stance and not reprimanding and allowing players to disrespect the national anthem and the flag along with millions of Americans and soldiers who have served and are serving this country. It is out of rage that you support this action and won't allow players to support police officers on the field. Shame on you.

Greg says:

You want to know why viewership is down and youths of NFL will be losing millions? You dropped the ball on the anthem protest. I have never missed a Cowboys game, neither has my dad nor my boys but now we may never watch another. I am an infantry veteran and what you think you can kneel or disrespect what I fought for? You are crazy. I hope your league falls apart as you lose billions all because you did not have the intestinal fortitude to do what was right. Now I have kids all across America doing this crap and they don't understand why they have the opportunity to disrespect America? and it was all started with the NFL. Good riddance. This will be your downfall.

I gagged, when I read that FS1’s Cowherd said that Trump and Hillary were to blame for low NFL ratings but not the national anthem protests. What a joke? My family is not watching the NFL this season for exactly that reason. Apparently, many others too. How insincere to act like this is for freedom of speech when the NFL won't allow other players to express appreciation for the police. We all know that NFL is doing this, so it doesn't have a ton of players who won't play in protest. It all boils down to money. We are done with NFL showing the lack of respect for the police and the flag, so completely sick of behavior in which nothing is beyond the pale. What a disgrace the NFL has become. We owe the NFL nothing and will enjoy life elsewhere.

NFL Commissioner and staff,

The letter is sent by retired Marine Col. Jeffery Powers resonates for so many football loving Americans, far more than you realize. If there is no interest from the NFL in what is being said concerning this lack of moral backing or national ensign, military and sacrifice, the NFL is going to find itself on the wrong side of this issue. As it seems to be a trend to allow disgrace over standing for what is correct and right. We have taken a vote at work and decided to stop watching any game that features this garbage and to boycott attending any games in person. The NFL may think this is small and inconsequential, it is not and now wait and watch the lost revenue if you can't get this straight.

Steve says:

Posted on Sep 21, 2016 at 06:18 AM

I have decided that at the beginning of each game if I see a player or any team not respecting the playing of the National Anthem, I will not watch the game. Here are players that have been given a chance, regardless of race to earn millions of dollars based on their skills but they disrespected the place that gave them the chance.

Well, I am not going to watch even though I have been a fan for years. The NFL has become greedy to take the right stand.

Mark Etter says:

Posted on Sep 21, 2016 at 06:14 AM

Now I will no longer purchase any NFL items but also with my family, and friends will stop watching football until these over grown babies are stopped from showing such disrespect to this country.

I am absolutely disgusted by all the players that cannot stand during our national anthem but more worse is that the NFL has not done anything about this. You have young teenagers looking up to these as role model and now there are high school football players that are following their same footsteps. I am a huge NFL fan but since all this has happened I refuse to watch the NFL because it is disgusting that you guys refuse to do anything about the situation. All this that is done is showing other countries how weak we are? How Long Terry Bradshaw, and Jerry Rice just to name a few would have never ever done what is being done today. These players are heroes to our young children and they are blatantly showing such disrespect for our country and you guys the NFL is allowing it. This is a sport that I now don't know if I can ever have respect again for this amazing sport that is being ruined by you all.

Thank you ,

Until the disgraceful behavior of Colin Kaepernick and his imitators is brought to a halt, neither I nor my family will attend a game. We will not even watch any NFL game on TV. We will also boycott the products and services of all of your national sponsors. Stop this terrible behavior immediately. It has already trickled down to some high school teams. Its enough now.

I agree with all the comments I have been reading concerning about Kaepernick and his asinine activity. I also have to say that the NFL needs to be boycotted, which I have started since last Sunday, September 12. I will not watch any more pro football probably for the rest of my life because Kaepernick and the NFL needs to apologize to the Dallas Cowboys and the fans and the whole country for their asinine attitude. There is no way Goodell or Kaepernick will ever apologize. So I will not get to enjoy America's No. 1 sport. However, I am determined to maintain this boycott, no matter what it takes?

I have enjoyed watching NFL football for the past 40+ years. Three weeks ago, I decided not to watch any 49ers broadcast as the disrespectful protest is spreading to other teams. I no longer will be watching any NFL broadcast. I will continue to find other sources of entertainment until all players get off their knees, lower their fists, lift their heads or otherwise respectfully acknowledge the National Anthem and American flag. A taxpayer funded stadium is the players workplace. It has nothing to do with Black Lives Matter or the African American relationship with first responders. Indeed, two-third of NFL players are black. It is a ludicrous venue to protest about discrimination. I am furious that military lives like Pat Tillman who lost defending the right of a player to wear "pig" socks. By the way, how much was he fined for that despicable display? Recently I saw an online photo of a military aircraft bringing home (filled with) flag-draped caskets. The caption read "Remove the offending flag from the life that didn't matter". At least the players are able to stand.

I am completely disgusted by the lack of respect shown by your players for this great nation and the people who have died or suffered defending it. If they do not wish to honor this country, then perhaps they can go play in Canada. You and the owners are showing an amazing lack of character and backbone by discipling a man for whipping his child and then ignoring with disrespect to our flag. Perhaps losing your fan base and millions of dollars in revenue will help you find the courage of your convictions. I am done with the NFL until this is fixed.

I am so disappointed with what is going on in the NFL this season. I can't understand why nothing is being done to stop it. You would have taken Brady to the Supreme Court to prove your point but yet you are sitting there without doing anything while these players make a mockery of our flag and country. They played in a city last night where African Americans are slaughtering each other at a record pace. Did any of them mentioned that, ofcourse not.

I am a lifelong fan of the NFL (52 years old). I have also served as veteran for 26 years. I am beside myself that you allowed the players to sit or kneel during the National Anthem. It should not be allowed and I wish you as a leader would put a stop to it. If those who sit would get involved in the communities, it would be better time spent and that could make a difference. I will not watch another NFL game until this is addressed.

Concerned fan says:

Posted on Sep 20, 2016 at 06:32 PM

I think its sad that you allowed players like Kaepernick to carry on like they did. While you encouraged them to carry on with their protest, I will proceed with mine. My protest is that the teams that are doing this are being banned from being watched in our household and we are going to encourage other families to do the same. Its a shame what the NFL is becoming.
