The 72 hours that changed the NFL

The latest … President Trump sent the following tweet late Sunday:

“Could it be even remotely possible that in Roger Goodell’s rather interesting statement of peace and reconciliation, he was intimating that it would now be O.K. for the players to KNEEL, or not to stand, for the National Anthem, thereby disrespecting our Country & our Flag?”

What’s next: “Where the NFL goes from here is a lot like where the country goes from here,” writes NBC Sports’ Peter King. “Will the push continue? Will the 32 owners … back their commissioner’s words when 15 players on some team choose to kneel during the anthem this year? And make no mistake — that’s coming.”
