Roger Goodell Insists Martin Luther King Jr. Would Have Wanted 17-Game Football Season In Front Of Full Stadiums
NEW YORK—Calling on the nation to honor the sacrifices of African American civil rights leaders, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell insisted Tuesday that Martin Luther King Jr. would have wanted to see a 17-game football season and stadiums open to fans. “I quote the good Dr. King when I say, ‘Playing a full 17-week football season with paying fans will heal the nation,’” said Goodell, who claimed that the true injustice after all this unrest would be subjecting the nation to the same old 16-game season without any concession sales. “When Martin Luther was marching from Selma, he was dreaming of a world where people of all colors would be free to collect ad revenue on a full slate of live NFL games without government oppression. He spoke for us all when he said life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘Are You Ready For Some Football?’” Goodell ended his speech by saying that if a class-action concussion lawsuit were to be allowed against the NFL, then leaders like King and Malcolm X would have died in vain.Read more: The Onion »
stoolpresidente edsbs Why stop at 17 games? Bunch of babies. Play play two to three times a week for the whole year. I did in my backyard growing up. You shouldn’t do that to Goodell, he’s going to get death threats because of your headline. stoolpresidente Small soft pink men are usually not big football fans, so I get where you’re coming from.
You got me You mean inside full stadiums Oh man I haven’t laughed like I did reading this headline in a very long time. Bless you, Onion.
Martin Luther King III: 'Had my father lived, we wouldn't be dealing with these issues'He told Sunday TODAY&39;s Willie Geist that if Martin Luther King Jr. had lived longer, "we wouldn&39;t be dealing with these issues." Well he isn’t, and your not your father.... you were an outcast. So stop condonining violence and repeating what your great father did and start taking your own stance against this. You can make a difference simply carrying the name, but you have done an aweful job so far Do you know what those people that you voted into office over and over and over like Joe Biden they’ve been running your cities for 65 years they give you lip service promise you everything and have done nothing but take your vote Humph 🤔
