Herschel Walker on NFL protests: ‘I blame the commissioner’
Former NFL great Herschel Walker is speaking out against the NFL player protests by firing at Roger Goodell and urging them to respect the White House, the New York Post reported yesterday.
“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.
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 — knows a thing or two about business.
