[Ed. – Goodell will go down in history as the man who killed professional football.]
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell doubled down on the league’s support for Black Lives Matter activism, including featuring social justice messages on end zones.
“The NFL stands with the black community, the players, clubs, and fans,” Goodell said Tuesday. “We will not relent in our work.”
“Confronting recent systemic racism with tangible and productive steps is absolutely essential … We will redouble our efforts to be catalysts for the urgent and sustainable change that our society and communities so desperately need,” he continued.
He added that “It Takes All Of Us” will be featured on one end line of football fields and “End Racism” will be on the other in every stadium this season. Players will also sport similar messaging on their helmets.
“I’m so proud of everyone across our league and others who have taken a stand.”…
