Is a leadership shake-up in the NFL on the horizon?
Amid recent protests of the national anthem, where players have created a firestorm of controversy by opting to kneel, an act that has viewers by the thousand turning the game off, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s future may be in question.
Radio talk show host Dom Giordano said Friday on Fox Business Network’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that NFL owners are “doing various things behind the scenes to pull this in.”
In response to Thursday’s game between the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where no players took a knee, Giordani said Goodell may have gotten the message that the league should be a place that has “respect for traditional values.”
Host Lou Dobbs noted that NFL owners have yet to sign a new contract with Goodell, before blasting the commissioner.
“They have a chance to take this loser and get him the hell out of their business, because he damn near ruined their business, substantially, absolutely and completely over the past three weeks,” Dobbs said.
Fox Business Network’s Deidre Bolton agreed that Goodell has “done some damage,” but pointed out that he “has survived numerous other scandals.”
Giordano chimed in to say that Goodell is “unliked” and has “mishandled just about everything,” and stressed that the NFL is “not bullet proof on this stuff.”
Bolton added that an obstacle to the business of football is that, unlike the NBA, the NFL doesn’t have strong worldwide appeal.
One thing is certain, many fans will be more than happy to see Roger Goodell pack his politically correct bags and hit the road.
