GAME OVER! Trump Just Made HUGE NFL Move – But Critic Commissioner Is PRAISING Him

Published

on

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.

Tom Brady Yells ‘Reagan, Reagan!’ During Super Bowl And The Responses Are Hilarious

Published

on

In one of the coolest moments in football history (as far as I’m concerned), New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made an unusual call during a play last night during the Super Bowl. Brady stepped to the line of scrimmage during the third quarter of the Super Bowl on Sunday night, took one look at how the Los Angeles Rams’ defense was squared up and decided to change the play right then and there. And it set social media on fire all over again.

Brady could clearly be heard on a microphone invoking the name of President Ronald Reagan. “Reagan! Reagan!” Brady yelled. I was already rooting for the Pats but they won my heart forever right then and there. How insanely cool is that? After the snap, he handed off the football to running back Sony Michel, who ran toward the right for a 4-yard gain, SB Nation reported.

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo commented that Brady’s call must have meant “run to the right.” And just like that, the New England Patriots became the official team of the Republican Party. President Trump is loved by Brady and Belichick, as well as others on the team. It would seem that Reagan is held dear as well.

You gotta love the Pats trolling the left in the Super Bowl. Epic. The blue checkmark crowd on Twitter came unglued after this on both the right and the left. Good times.

Conservatives loved it to death:

  • “I love it,” one Twitter user noted. “Tom Brady shouted Reagan Reagan, and then they ran to the right. I officially love Tom Brady, and the Patriots are officially the team of the Republican Party.”
  • “Tom Brady just called ‘Reagan Reagan,’ which according to Tony Romo means run to the right,” another added. “I now concede that Tom Brady is the GOAT.”
  • “CNN Breaking News: Tom Brady yells Reagan Reagan before play. 12-person panel has been assembled to discuss Brady’s clear racism,” another joked.

Liberals, however, were not amused:

  • “Y’all still hype up Tom Brady as if he isn’t a racist trump lover???” one Twitter user asked. “Did y’all not hear the Reagan thing either??? Or are we choosing to ignore those things???”
  • “OF COURSE Tom Brady would have an audible named after Ronald Reagan,” another noted. “God I hate Tom Brady.”
  • “Ronald Reagan and Tom Brady are both pieces of s**t,” yet another succinctly put it.

The Conservative Tribune posited a very believable reason for the call:

“Third, the Patriots have often been known to thumb their noses at decorum and have no problem running a score up or rubbing their opponents’ faces in the dirt to send a message. It would not be a stretch at all to consider “Reagan” an overtly intentional play call given how much flak Brady, Patriots coach Bill Belichick, and team owner Robert Kraft have gotten from the left about their association and friendship with Trump.”

The New England Patriots won the Super Bowl 13 to 3 much to the horror of leftists across the nation. It was the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history. Corbin Smith of The Daily Beast who wrote that the Patriots are “the preferred team of white nationalists,” must have stroked out over it.

This is Brady’s unprecedented sixth NFL championship. And Reagan lives on. Go Pats!

Daily Beast: Patriots Are ‘Preferred Team Of White Nationalists’

Published

on

The Daily Beast’s author Corbin Smith really went off on the New England Patriots before the Super Bowl. Unfortunately for him, the Pats won. In a very weird, racist screed that just oozed anger and hatred, Smith called the Patriots fans Team MAGA,” the living manifestation of “MAGA scum,” and, perhaps most stunning of all, “the preferred team of white nationalists.” He also called Boston a racist city for what it is worth. Boston is no such thing and neither are the Patriots.

Smith said that Patriots fans were complicit in the white nationalism and he really went after Tom Brady, coach Bill Belichick, and the team owner Robert Kraft. He calls them all “supporters” of President Trump. Smith referred to Brady as “unnerving” because at a rally he led a chant of “we’re still here.” Smith claims Brady is a “square-jawed grifter throwing red meat to the hogs at an alt-right rally, screaming at the libs who thought Nancy Pelosi and her gender warriors were gonna keep DECENT AMERICAN FOLKS from BEING HERE.”

Smith’s rant was epic:

“This past weekend, the Super Bowl-bound New England Patriots held a rally for their sweatiest fans at Gillette Stadium. Brady gave a speech. It ended… unnervingly.

“WE’RE STILL HERE! WE’RE STILL HERE! Obviously, Brady is referring to his aging, decrepit, cheating-ass squad’s progression to the big game. But, imagine you didn’t know anything about football, or who Tom Brady was, or anything like that. You would think that you were watching some square-jawed grifter throwing red meat to the hogs at an alt-right rally, screaming at the libs who thought Nancy Pelosi and her gender warriors were gonna keep DECENT AMERICAN FOLKS from BEING HERE.

“Of course, even if you do know stuff about Brady you may still think he’s on his way to pursuing this line of grifting. He flashed a red MAGA hat, an accouterment that is gaining more and more traction as a symbol of white nationalism in America, in his locker back in the primary days. He wasn’t the only one! Patriots’ Coach Bill Belichick wrote a goddamn letter to Trump right before the end of the campaign that basically amounted to an endorsement, that Trump then read on stage. And Pats’ owner Robert Kraft is also his pal, and was even shouted out at Trump’s pre-Inauguration dinner in D.C. for his most deep-pocketed donors.”

This was another part of Smith’s twisted argument:

“The whole institution of Boston sports, from root to stem, is tinged with the sort of racism that brought Trump into office. The Boston Red Sox were the last MLB team to desegregate, more than a decade after Jackie Robinson entered the league. The Sox’s first owner, Tom Yawkey, was an infamous racist whose speech was peppered with racial slurs. Larry Bird became a symbol of white resentment during his time in the NBA, his jersey appearing as a symbol of white entitlement to black spaces in Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing. His large teammate, Kevin McHale, was spotted at a Trump rally during the election.

“Look, it doesn’t matter if the Patriots like it or not, they are the official team of American White Nationalism, the MAGA Boys On the Field. You can’t implicitly or explicitly support Trump, who reads speeches written by Stephen Miller as a matter of course, play in a market whose sporting culture is renowned for its racism, have a decade-plus organizational obsession with undersized white receivers, and be called, no shit, the Patriots, without getting the vile Fox News Soup that poisoned half the country on your shirt. Try to put on a bib of distancing yourself, deflecting questions, telling everyone your wife told you to stop talking about it, that shit isn’t gonna work. You’re the MAGA Kid. It’s on you forever. It stalks and haunts you.

“When you root for the Patriots, you are associating yourself with a virulent and revolting strain of politics that seeks to Make America Great Again—which is to say, white, European, English-speaking. And look, I understand if you’ve been rooting for Boston teams your whole life. Fandom is a hard drug to quit. But please, look at yourself, look at who these guys put out for, and reconsider. Think about if you would want to find yourself in a crowd of sweaty, white men chanting WE’RE STILL HERE while a Trump supporter egged you on. Are you one-hundred percent sure you’re comfortable with that?”

It was one of the most bizarre pieces I have ever read, even for The Daily Beast. Anyone who even remotely supports Trump is evidently a racist in his eyes. A MAGA hat seen with Brady is surely what set this guy off originally back in 2015. Brady may have been friends and a golfing buddy to Trump but he has never publically supported him.

Belichick wrote a “letter” to Trump that Trump often refers to in his campaign speeches. Kraft donated $1 million to Trump’s inauguration committee and got a “shout out” from Trump at the event. Kraft and Trump have since parted ways over a difference of opinion over NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem.

Social media tore Smith to shreds as they should have over this silliness. When President Trump wins a second term, look for this guy to accuse the entire nation of racism and white nationalism. He’s unhinged and needs help. But then, this is The Daily Beast we are speaking of.
