NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s ironic response to Trump backfires; shows he is indeed a coward

In a strong presumptive response to President Trump’s comments Friday night about the cowardliness of NFL owners who won’t stand up to protesting players, the NFL isn’t holding anything back.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement on Saturday that the comments were divisive and showed an “unfortunate” lack of respect for the organization.

Though the statement does not mention the president, it’s clear he was the intended recipient.

“The NFL and our players are at our best when we help create a sense of unity in our country and our culture,” Commissioner Roger Goodell said. “There is no better example than the amazing response from our clubs and players to the terrible natural disasters we’ve experienced over the last month.  Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities.”

Twitter folks lashed out at the NFL head calling him a coward because he couldn’t even say Trump’s name.
