In the summer of 2017 Dallas Cowboy tight end Jason Witten suggested that the team wear police decals on their helmets as a tribute to the 5 policemen who lost their lives in a shoot out with a crazy black terrorist in Dallas in 2016.
Cowboy management went along with the idea, however Robert Goodell CEO of the NFL said no. Not during the pre-season and not during the regular season.
But when it came to blacks kneeling during the National Anthem, Goodell said it was inappropriate to deny player's their freedom of speech.
How do you reconcile that without coming to the conclusion that Goodell is a black racist.
Here's what I think, If the NFL owners get rid of Goodell, and his 20 million dollars a year salary, they take a step towards recovery of its tarnished reputation. His idea of what's even-handed and fair is not in keeping with NFL customers.
