Cause and Effect Matt Light and the end of Kneeling Protests for the NFL

You might remem­ber last week I wrote this about Matt Light, who after exco­ri­at­ing his New Eng­land Patri­ots for kneel­ing dur­ing the national anthem was voted into the Patri­ots Hall of Fame by the fans:

While I don’t expect the league or the Patri­ots to acknowl­edge the part Light’s unequiv­o­cal response to those anthem protests had in his vic­tory you bet­ter believe that not only has the league noticed this but every GM & Owner who might be con­sider sign­ing one of the kneel­ers has too.

Well appar­ently they got the mes­sage because this is the break­ing news from the NFL

Two years of bad pub­lic­ity and the attacks from the Pres­i­dent was not enough to make the own­ers bend.

But the knowl­edge that fans, even in the bluest states in the coun­try have not for­got­ten or for­given these actions com­bined with the knowl­edge that the Trump admin­is­tra­tion is becom­ing more, not less, pop­u­lar, means their posi­tion and the prospect for a week to week count of who is kneel­ing and how is not, make their posi­tion untennable.

Of course peo­ple will note who stays in the tun­nel and who will not and there will still be a lit­tle bit of push­back but all of that will be away from the sight of the cam­eras which is all the NFL really wants.

This is a huge win for Don­ald Trump who can take credit for this result but it is a big­ger win for Demo­c­rat can­di­dates who were rightly ter­ri­fied of hav­ing to answer ques­tions on this issue in dis­tricts they des­per­ately need to win.

You might remember last week I wrote this about Matt Light, who after excoriating his New England Patriots for kneeling during the national anthem was voted into the Patriots Hall of Fame by the fans:

While I don’t expect the league or the Patriots to acknowledge the part Light’s unequivocal response to those anthem protests had in his victory you better believe that not only has the league noticed this but every GM & Owner who might be consider signing one of the kneelers has too.

Well apparently they got the message because this is the breaking news from the NFL

Two years of bad publicity and the attacks from the President was not enough to make the owners bend.

But the knowledge that fans, even in the bluest states in the country have not forgotten or forgiven these actions combined with the knowledge that the Trump administration is becoming more, not less, popular, means their position and the prospect for a week to week count of who is kneeling and how is not, make their position untennable.

Of course people will note who stays in the tunnel and who will not and there will still be a little bit of pushback but all of that will be away from the sight of the cameras which is all the NFL really wants.

This is a huge win for Donald Trump who can take credit for this result but it is a bigger win for Democrat candidates who were rightly terrified of having to answer questions on this issue in districts they desperately need to win.
