The NFL is now embracing the far left and its favorite cause of social justice. The league has even committed to donating $89 million dollars in support. This shows the NFL really has no interest in retaining its fans.
Sources: NFL agrees to commit $89M over seven years to social justice causes
The NFL and a group of players reached an agreement in principle late Wednesday night to partner on a plan to address social justice issues considered important to African-American communities, sources told ESPN.
The unprecedented agreement calls for the league to contribute $89 million over seven years to projects dealing with criminal justice reform, law enforcement/community relations and education.
During a conference call Wednesday night, Malcolm Jenkins and Anquan Boldin, who lead roughly 40 players who have negotiated with the league office about demonstrations during the national anthem, guided the group through the highlights of the package, which represents the NFL’s largest contribution to a social issue, surpassing that of Salute to Service or Breast Cancer Awareness/Crucial Catch.
The partnership came a day after some players broke away from the Players Coalition because of their dissatisfaction with how Jenkins and Boldin have handled negotiations. Commissioner Roger Goodell, believing that an agreement was at hand, was furious when ESPN reported that players were breaking off, according to one source…
The agreement does not include language calling for players to end protests during the national anthem in exchange for funds; there’s no implicit quid pro quo.
This will not go over well with football fans who are already angry at the league for the National Anthem protests. They just don’t seem interested in anything but their left wing politics.
