NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is on the verge of handing President Trump a significant political victory by calling on his players to stand for the national anthem.

For the first time since some players began taking a knee in protest of police misconduct, the commish officially and explicitly said he wants players to honor the anthem by standing 锟斤拷 even Torry Holt Youth jersey as he respects their right to protest. He says the league will come up with a formal policy at next week’s owners meeting.

Trump is a rookie politician who makes rookie mistakes: He’s often impetuous and volatile, and those traits have certainly hurt passage of his broader agenda.

Despite Elliot’s plea for an independent arbiter, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell selected Harold Henderson, a former league executive, to hear the case.

Becker and Poliakoff sports attorney Daniel Wallach shed light on the biggest obstacle facing Elliot and his powerful legal team: The NFL arbitration process is not like a typical courtroom appeal.

In the judicial form, appeals are somewhat confined factually, Wallach told The Post. But in the NFL’s appeals procedure in connection with player discipline 锟斤拷 [it] is a hybrid of an appeal/evidentiary hearing.

The NFL’s procedure does not include many of the niceties afforded by courtroom evidence rules such as upholding Sixth and Seventh Amendment rights, including the right of the accused to confront his accuser.

NFL ratings turnaround hits big speed bump

The NFL’s ratings comeback has stalled.
Men's Michael Jordan Swingman Black Jersey: Adidas NBA #23 Chicago Bulls Precious Metals Fashion
The TV audience for NFL games, down sharply from last season, had been closing the gap with 2016 for the last seven weeks 锟斤拷 until last weekend.

NBC’s Sunday Night Football game between the Oakland Raiders and the Miami Dolphins attracted 14.4 million viewers, down 22 percent from SNF’s Week 9 game last year, according to data compiled by Sports Media Watch.

It doesn’t get any easier for the NFL from here on. Last season, audiences were tamped down, in part, because attention was diverted to the raucous presidential campaign.

Ratings picked up last season with Week 10, the first post-Election Day slate of games 锟斤拷 an increase in viewerhip that may be hard to match this year.

But if you open up your mind and look deeper into what he’s doing, you’ve got to put all that stuff aside and realize that he’s doing something 锟斤拷 And I believe he’s made change. And I think he’s doing a great job off the field. If you pay attention to his Instagram and stuff like that, he’s not just talking about it; he’s having actions and stuff like that. So kudos to him.

McNair said Trump’s divisive and counterproductive words couldn’t have come at a worse time for the country.

Owners Authentic Randal Grichuk Jersey of the New York Giants and eight other teams made similar comments.

It causes me to wonder what is ESPN about because I thought it was about news and information and highlights, and I’m not sure that is the point of emphasis anymore, Werder said on The Doomsday Podcast.
Limited Kids Von Miller Jersey
How is ESPN going to cover the NFL without all of the people who just lost their jobs? What happens without Merril Hoge and Ron Jaworski to ‘NFL Matchup’? What happens to ‘NFL Insiders’ without a number of analysts, former general managers like Joe Banner and Mark Dominik? Are we really about to see a time when ESPN can no longer afford to cover its most valuable property in the way that historically it has?

NFL owners stop short of making rule to stand for national anthem

NFL owners will not to force players to stand for the national anthem, even though they agree they should, league Commissioner Roger Goodell said on Wednesday.
Nike NFL Julian Howsare Navy Blue Jersey Men's Game: #43 New York Jets Alternate
Another issue we spent a great deal of time talking about this morning was how much we believe that everyone should stand for the national anthem, he said following an owners’ meeting in Manhattan.

Authentic Womens Jayon Brown Jersey Grid-ironers have been kneeling during the anthem to protest systemic racism. NFL policy asks they stand for The Star-Spangled Banner, but it is not required.

Goodell refused to wade into the political debate.

I have not communicated with Trump, Goodell said. We are trying to stay Larry Johnson Jersey out of politics. We are not looking to get into politics. What we are looking to do is continue to keep people focused on football.

The league isn’t taking Trump’s bait, according to New York Giants owner John Mara.

We’re all aware that that’s going to continue, but we just can’t allow ourselves to get baited by that. We’re going to do what we think is right, he said.

Game Reggie Nelson Jersey It seems obvious that the news cycle ahead of last year’s election had a negative impact on the NFL’s ratings, he said.

Nathanson drives home his election-campaign theory by pointing out that pre-election ratings were down 12 percent compared with the previous season 锟斤拷 while post-election viewership fell just 5 percent.

Nathanson added that NFL ratings were also hurt by poor matchups, something he said is lnot so much of a challenge this year.

It does look like the NFL has constructed a better primetime schedule this year, he said, noting the NFL game power rankings were up solidly this season over last.

The slide in NFL ratings was the talk of the media world 锟斤拷 and beyond 锟斤拷 last year. It came after years of steady growth.

The league attracted $3.5 billion in advertising revenue in 2016 and draws the most consistent TV audience of young male adults.

There were scores of stories about the ratings slide, with everything from ex-San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand during the pre-game national anthem to the threat of concussions and the poor off-field behavior of some players being blamed for the ratings fumble.

The Packers haven’t ruled out the possibility of Rodgers playing again this season.

Asked which measure the pro-discipline owners favor taking against Jones, the person said: It depends on how far he goes.

It is not realistic, however, for league leaders to try to force Jones to sell the Cowboys, that person said. The Cowboys are estimated by Forbes to be worth more than $4 billion.
Authentic Mens Jean-Francois Berube Jersey
The NFL, in a letter from an outside attorney for the league to Boies, has said it considers Jones to be engaged in conduct detrimental to the league.

But there would be no reason to put Rodgers back on the field in the final weeks of the regular season if they are out of playoff contention. The next chance for Hundley and the Packers comes Sunday in Chicago. Their season may not be on the line quite yet, but it’s getting close. Rodgers is not around to rescue them the way he did last season, when the Packers won their final six games of the regular season Kurt Warner Womens Jersey following a 4-6 start and then reached the NFC title game.

Some of them expressed surprise at the report when contacted by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Billionaire Thomas Tull told the P-G, Art Rooney and Coach Tomlin have my full support. Larry Paul, who holds shares along with his brother Stephen, said they were not aware of the PFT report and offered support for Rooney.
Kwon Alexander Limited Jersey
The source that spoke to PFT indicated there were issues with how Tomlin handled the Jacksonville game, particularly at the end, and the team’s supposed lack of discipline.

In August, after the incidents in Charlottesville, a poll conducted by NPR, PBS NewsHour and Marist asked Americans whether they agreed or disagreed with a number of movements and ideologies. More than half of Republicans and those who supported Trump said they disagreed with the ideology of Black Lives Matter. Specifically, 64 percent of Republicans and 68 percent of Trump supporters said they mostly disagreed with Black Lives Matter. By contrast, 70 percent of Republicans and 68 percent of Trump supporters 锟斤拷 the same number 锟斤拷 said they mostly disagreed with the beliefs of white nationalists.

When a team hasn’t been to a Super Bowl in a long time, it creates even more pressure and excitement once it reaches this point.

Pat Elflein Authentic Jersey
That’s certainly the case for three of the teams left, and none of them have ever been Super Bowl champions. The Eagles have not been to the Super Bowl since Donovan McNabb and Andy Reid led them there in 2004 (they also won the NFC title in 1980).
Men's Nike Detroit Lions #34 Zach Zenner White Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL Jersey
Goodell declined to address Wednesday what the league would do Authentic Max Scherzer Jersey if a team disciplines a player for refusing to stand for the anthem. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones previously has said that his team would bench any player who protests during the anthem and thereby, in Jones’s view, shows disrespect to the American flag.

I think our clubs all see this the same way: that we want our players to stand, Goodell said. We’re going to continue to encourage them to stand. We’re going to continue to work on these issues in the community. 锟斤拷 I can’t deal with hypotheticals right now. We’ll deal with those issues as they come up.

We believe everyone should stand for the national anthem, Goodell said at the conclusion of the October owners’ meeting. That’s an important part of our policy. It’s also an important part of our game that we all take great pride in. And it’s also important for us to honor our flag and our country, and we think our fans expect us to do that.

Goodell and owners said then that they were focused on discussions with the players about league support of players’ community activism. They said they hoped that such support would convince players to voluntarily stand for the anthem, although they cautioned there was no formal or implied agreement that NFL support of players’ activism would lead to all players standing.

This is not a trade-off, Jed York, the chief executive officer of the San Francisco 49ers, said at the October meeting. From what I’ve read, there are some players that have said that they’re still not considering standing yet. And that never came up in the meeting. 锟斤拷 This has been, ‘How do we take protest to progress?’ How do we make sure that we move these issues forward that matter to the players and I think that matter to the owners?

Mavs slow recent slide with season sweep of Wizards, 98-75

Dennis Smith Jr. scored his first points on a 360-degree dunk before the rookie Dallas guard focused more on the bigger task: trying to slow the high-scoring Washington duo of Bradley Beal and John Wall.
Limited John Johnson Youth Olive Nike Jersey - #43 NFL Los Angeles Rams 2017 Salute to Service
The Mavericks did that Monday night, holding the Wizards guards to 28 percent shooting in a 98-75 victory that completed a two-game season sweep of the Eastern Conference playoff contenders while easing Dallas’ slide back toward to the bottom in the West.

A notable exception: The percentage of white Republican sports fans (and Republican-leaning independents) who said the protests were a problem was 84 percent. The percentage of white Democrats (and leaners) who said the same? Sixty-one percent.

Kids Cortez Kennedy Jersey The percentage of nonwhite respondents to this question in our poll was fairly small, so there’s a big margin of error. But white Democrats (and leaners) were much closer in their opinions about the protests to the opinions of nonwhites Martin Maldonado Jersey than they were to white Republicans.

Nick Shore Womens Jersey This is one issue buried in the innumerable partisan issues in the United States today. It bolsters the broader point raised by Pew, though: Partisanship on this particular question is more divisive than race.

The Browns own the top pick in the draft and also select fourth overall. While some players might not want to play for a team that went winless in 2017, Allen is embracing the possibility.

If I’m fortunate enough to become a Cleveland Brown, you can expect everything from me, Allen said Monday during an interview with the Bull and Fox show on Cleveland’s 92.3 The Fan. I want to be the guy that turns around the Cleveland Browns. The guy that does that is going to be immortalized in Cleveland forever.

Allen looks like an NFL quarterback at 6-5, 233 pounds, and has the athleticism and arm strength needed to play at the next level. He battled injuries in 2017, missing two games and threw for 1,812 yards with 16 touchdowns and six interceptions. He completed just 56.3 percent of his passes and had a 56-percent completion percentage in 2016, when he threw for 3,203 yards with 28 touchdowns and 15 picks.

The final game of the Divisional Round was a ridiculous roller-coaster battle between the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints.

The Vikings nearly blew a 17-0 lead and had multiple heartbreaking moments near the end, but Stefon Diggs made the play of his life to seal the 29-24 victory.

The Vikings’ defense came to play in the first half, locking down Drew Brees and the Saints’ entire attack. It was an entirely different story after halftime, as Brees came to life and led the Saints to 14 unanswered points. They took the lead late in the fourth quarter, and that’s when madness ensued.

She is a lawyer, but better yet, she’s the daughter of Boots Donnelly, a legendary coach at Austin Peay and Middle Tennessee State who’s in the College Football Hall of Fame.

Helen worried that whatever he said would come back to haunt him, that it would be picked apart and used against him when he tried to eventually get another head-coaching job. She knew her husband was awkward in these settings. He’s hard to warm up to, she said at the time.

But for an afternoon, Marrone did his part in trying to reveal his human side. He ate hummus, talked about his kids and said he wanted to C.J. Anderson Authentic Jersey be a head coach again someday. He didn’t reveal his reason for leaving Buffalo, but it’s assumed that two things happened: that Marrone was uneasy about his future with new management, and that he thought he was getting the job with the New York Jets that had just opened up. (The Jets went with Todd Bowles.)

CBS has been one of our most trusted and valuable partners for over 50 years, and we’re happy to extend our relationship with them in new and exciting ways, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement announcing the partnership. Distribution of our games on CBS All Access is a win for the millions of NFL fans across the country, especially those looking to watch our games on these emerging digital platforms.

It’s fitting that the NFL season came to a close on New Year’s Eve. After the Week 17 games, Womens Wade Baldwin Jersey every team will start with a clean slate either vying for the Lombardi Trophy in the playoffs, or taking stock of what went wrong and planning for 2018.

Womens Danny Amendola Jersey It’s a lie, of course. Unless a franchise has recently fired Jeff Fisher, a team will only take incremental steps forward or backward. Sure, there are exceptions: One or two teams will experience huge leaps in the win column thanks to turnover luck and positive results in close games, and those teams’ fans will be CERTAIN that it was the result of effort and superior coaching, and not the random providence of luck, destined to regress to the mean.

The truth is, the calendar is the only thing that’s changed. We can experience temporary improvements, but most of us are destined to regress to our personal means. And NFL teams are the same: Your team is unlikely to improve dramatically.

But the NFL monolith will scrape forward nonetheless. Your favorite players will get injured. People will complain about the refs. The Patriots will go 12-4. 2018 is the same hell as 2017, just fresher.

There’s a lot of strong-minded people, but when you have something good going, everybody’s got to get their egos checked in and try to hold it together.

ESPN The Magazine recently published a story detailing tension between Kraft, Belichick and Brady over the controversial trade of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and the role of Brady’s personal trainer, Alex Guerrero.

Well, I have a saying: Jealousy and envy are incurable diseases, Kraft said. I’ve been around enough, if you run any kind of company, any kind of business, the more successful you are, you have strong personalities, there’s always a certain amount of tension. That just goes with the agenda.

You oftentimes get man-to-man in those scenarios, Quinn said. So, as a former defensive coordinator, I recognize that’s a play that people do employ. We were looking for that opportunity and that matchup on that specific play. That’s what we thought was going to be the best play called for that time.

You wouldn’t know it by watching their Wild Card Round loss to the Falcons, but the Rams had one of the best special teams units in the league.

Greg Zuerlein is a reliable leg at kicker and was a huge loss when he went on injured reserve in late December. And Pharoh Cooper, when he isn’t fumbling kick returns, has the speed to break big plays:

Sammy Watkins got all the headlines when the Rams acquired him from Buffalo in the preseason, but his former Bills teammate, Robert Woods, ended up having a career year. Woods had a forgettable run in Buffalo, but 2017 reminded us why he was considered a special talent coming out of USC with his game-breaking speed:

Woods finished with a career-high 781 yards and five touchdowns, shining in his first season in LA.
