Uh oh, the Colin Kaepernick’s and Nike’s of the world will be livid after they find out what NFL Roger Goodell just said.
The Daily Mail is reporting that even though President Donald Trump has criticized NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on many occasions, Goodell is now praising the president’s leadership and determination for a part of the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement that should prove extremely profitable for the league which keeps losing fans over the National Anthem kneeling controversy.
The new North American trade deal which replaced the old failed North American Free Trade Agreement, still needs congressional approval. But under the new pact, the NFL could earn more from Super Bowl broadcasting rights in Canada. And this is huge considering the NFL has been hampered by a 2015 ruling in Canada stipulating that the Super Bowl must show American advertisements rather than Canadian advertisements.
“We greatly appreciate President Trump’s leadership and determination in bringing about a resolution to our intellectual property issue in Canada,” Goodell said in a statement.
The updated agreement would do away with that stipulation, which would, in turn, allow the NFL to customize advertisements for its Canadian audience instead of being forced to use the same ones which air within the U.S. markets.
Here is more on this via The Washington Post:
“The usually testy relationship between the NFL and President Trump was set aside, at least temporarily, Tuesday when Commissioner Roger Goodell expressed gratitude to Trump for resolving a dispute involving the Super Bowl broadcast on Canadian television to the league’s satisfaction as part of the administration’s new trade deal with Canada and Mexico.
“We greatly appreciate President Trump’s leadership and determination in bringing about a resolution to our intellectual property issue in Canada,” Goodell said in a written statement released by the NFL.
“Canada agreed Sunday to join the trade agreement between the United States and Mexico. The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA, is the revised version of the North American Free Trade Agreement that Trump had sought, and it overturns a regulatory order in Canada forcing the CTV network to air American commercials on its Super Bowl broadcast.
“That ruling by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission prevented CTV from increasing its revenue from its Super Bowl telecast by selling ads in Canada.
“The NFL, seeking to preserve the value of its Super Bowl broadcasting rights in Canada, opposed the CRTC order and sought a return to the policy of simultaneous substitution, which allows Canadian TV stations with Canadian broadcasting rights to replace U.S. ads with local Canadian ads during imported programming shown simultaneously with the U.S. telecast.
“The NFL argued that the 2015 order by the CRTC, the Canadian equivalent of the Federal Communications Commission in the United States, was arbitrary and discriminatory by singling out one U.S.-copyrighted program without, in the league’s view, proper notice, comment or evaluation.
“That order by the CRTC was rescinded in a provision of the new trade deal, prompting the NFL’s praise of Trump.
“That provision in the trade deal says that “Canada may not accord the program treatment less favorable than the treatment accorded to other programs originating in the United States retransmitted in Canada.”
“Trump has been sharply critical of Goodell and the league over the NFL’s handling of protests by players during the national anthem. He also has criticized the protesting players in strong terms, beginning last year when he said at a campaign rally that owners should fire any player who protests during the anthem. Trump has returned to the topic regularly over the past year, prompting the league and owners to take his public reactions into account as they deliberated over how to deal with the protests.”
As you can see, the ungrateful players can’t be happy with these developments. They kneel and the president hands the NFL a gift. A gift that the organization simply just doesn’t deserve after they have let players disrespect our flag, our nation, and the police the way the NFL has.
Let’s hope that maybe after this the NFL wakes up and starts to cut players who kneel. And before anyone starts up, this isn’t a freedom of speech issue. It’s an issue of how many rights you have while being paid by an employer and while you are on the clock.

LGBTQ Activists LIVID That Trump Served Chick-Fil-A To College Football Champs
There’s nothing that ticks off the left like Chick-fil-A. And President Trump is a master troller who used that to full advantage this last week. Universities may be fine with banning Chick-fil-A but at the White House, they are at the top of the menu. And that is triggering some LGBTQ activists.
Trump served another feast of fast food to college football champions last week. This time it wasn’t McDonald’s and Wendy’s… it was the feared Chick-fil-A that sparked outrage and anger.
— NDSU Football (@NDSUfootball) March 4, 2019
“For the second time this year, Donald Trump has invited an athletic team to the White House and boasted about serving them fast food,” wrote Tracy Gilchrist at The Advocate. “But this time, chicken sandwiches from the virulently anti-LGBTQ company Chick-fil-A were arranged on silver platters for champions on the North Dakota State Bison football team Monday.”
The horror of it all! The sky is falling!!
President Trump said the athletes requested Chick-fil-A so that is what they got. “We could’ve had chefs, we could have, but we had fast food — because I know you people,” Trump told the athletes. “Chick-fil-A, they say? Chick-fil-A.”
From The Daily Wire:
“Bill Browning of LGBTQ Nation denounced Chick-fil-A’s presence at the White House with the same fervor as Gilchrist.
“For the second time in his presidency, Donald Trump has served fast food to an athletic team to ‘celebrate’ their victory,” wrote Browning. “This time, the President who has attacked the LGBTQ community the most served up Chick-fil-A, a company known for opposing LGBTQ rights.”
“The left-wing hatred for Chick-fil-A began in 2012 when company president and COO Dan Cathy expressed support for traditional marriage, prompting boycotts across the country from LGBTQ activists.
“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,'” Cathy said at the time. “I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.”
“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit,” he said on the Biblical Recorder. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that. … We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that. We intend to stay the course,” he said. “We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”
“Just last year, two major publications wrote scathing articles begging people to boycott the business: The New Yorker and Huffington Post. “If You Really Love LGBTQ People, You Just Can’t Keep Eating Chick-fil-A,” wrote Noah Michelson of HuffPo. When Chick-fil-A wanted to set up shop in New York City, Dan Piepenring of The New Yorker called it a “creepy infiltration” of the city.
“Later in 2018, the Pittsburgh city council signed a letter asking Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon to drop the Chick-fil-A Pittsburgh Kids Marathon one-mile run for children and their families at the Pittsburgh Marathon. Fortunately, the organizers did not cave.
“We have and will continue to be accepting of any individual or family who wants to participate in our events,” the organizers said in a statement. “This partnership with Chick-fil-A will help us ensure even more children in southwestern Pennsylvania can learn and share in our love of running.”
“Most recently, a Dean at Rider University resigned from his post when the school banned the chicken restaurant on campus.”
This is beyond dumb. Because Christians own a chicken restaurant the left just can’t take it. But they embrace those of the Muslim faith. Memo to the left… they stone gays to death or worse. The owner’s religion should make no difference when you decide to eat somewhere and if it does… that’s your thing, not mine.
Darn it… now I’ve got to go eat me some yummy Chick-fil-A. I guess I’ll just suffer through it and make mine a double.

British Olympian Says Transgenders Should Be Barred From Competing Against Biological Women
Sharron Davies, 56, is a British Olympian. She has said that transgenders should be barred from competing against biological women and for that, accusations of hate have been thrown at her. This woman won a silver medal in swimming at the 1980 Olympics in Moscow. She’s also a two-time Commonwealth Games gold medallist. But that doesn’t matter… now she’s being labeled as ‘transphobic’.
Davies isn’t shying away from the controversy. She took to Twitter to tell people how she really feels about all this and how transgender athletes make sports unfair for women. I could not agree more. It makes it pointless to compete as a woman when men who are transgendering are in the mix. They still have superior biology that gives them an unfair advantage against women.
“I have nothing against anyone who wishes 2be transgender,” Davies wrote on March 1st. “However, I believe there is a fundamental difference between the binary sex u r born with & the gender u may identify as. To protect women’s sport those with a male sex advantage should not be able 2compete in women’s sport.”
After the massive blowback Davies received, she defended her stance by stating that she is not the only natural-born female athlete who feels that transgenders are essentially cheating natural women out of titles.
“It is not a transphobic thing – I really want to say we have no issue with people who are transgender,” Davies told the BBC on Saturday.
”Every single woman athlete I’ve spoken to, and I have spoken to many, all of my friends in international sports, understand and feels the same way as me,” Davies elaborated. “Unfortunately, a lot of people who are in the races [now] are in a very difficult predicament when they can’t speak out.”

Davies also pointed out that it is incumbent upon athletes past and present to speak up for women’s rights. ”
“It maybe falls to the people who were competing [in the past] who would understand the predicament that is being faced at the moment to try to create a debate, and try to explain how we feel there needs to be a fair and level playing field.”
Martina Navratilova is a legend in tennis. She’s also gay and a big defender of LGBTQ rights. She was attacked by transgender activists for her stance that transgender athletes were “cheating” by competing against natural-born women. Which they are.
“You can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women,” Navratilova said last December. “There must be some standards and having a penis and competing as a woman would not fit that standard.”
18-time tennis Grand Slam tennis singles champion Navratilova also called transgender athletes competing against women “insane.” It’s hard to argue with her opinion on this. The whole subject is insane. Unfortunately, she felt it necessary to apologize for what she truly thinks here.
From The Daily Mail:
“She was called out by Canadian academic and cycling champion Dr Rachel McKinnon, who is the first transgender woman to win a female world cycling title.
“McKinnon, 35, still has her male anatomy, but has lived as a woman since she was 29.
“She accused Navratilova of transphobia and demanded an apology.
“Following an article on the subject that Navratilova wrote for The Times Athlete Ally, an LGBTQ athlete advocacy group, removed her from their advisory board, stating her comments ‘are transphobic [and] based on a false understanding of science and data.’
“Writing on her website, the 62-year-old admitted she ‘stumbled into a hornet’s nest’ when giving her opinion on the issue.
“‘I know that my use of the word ‘cheat’ caused particular offence among the transgender community. I’m sorry for that because I certainly was not suggesting that transgender athletes in general are cheats,’ she wrote.
“She said her comments related ‘to a notional case in which someone cynically changes gender’ to gain an advantage.
“The Czech-born former star said there is no ‘blanket rule’ that will appeal to everyone, adding: ‘After all, if everyone were included, women’s sports as we know them would cease to exist.'”
Which is exactly the point I have been making.
“The communists tried to shut me up 45 years ago and look how that worked out…” Navratilova wrote towards the end of her blog post. It was a possible reference to the fact that she was stripped of her Czechoslovakian citizenship in 1975 after defecting to the U.S. It’s the same ideology here except the communists are transgender. Navratilova didn’t back down then, she should not back down now and neither should Davies.
