Former NFL susperstar Herschel Walker – who aggressively praised America’s military heroes and first responders – slams NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for not quelling the national anthem protests.
NYPost’s John Aidan Byrne reports that the Heisman Trophy winner doesn’t beat around the bush:
“Guys, let me tell you this,” he said.
“Our flag is very special, and black lives matter, but what we should do is go to Washington after the season and protest there instead. We have young men and women fighting for the flag. And we have to respect the White House.”
Walker – who used to play for President Trump’s short-lived USFL New Jersey Generals in the ’80s…
Was not done…
“I absolutely think the protests are so upsetting, and I blame the commissioner,” he said.
“I know people are going to be angry when I say it, but he should have stopped the protests at the very beginning.”
All of this comes after a week of turmoil between Goodell and the owners amid a continued slide in ratings.
