As Dallas Cowboy’s owner Jerry Jones continues his one-man crusade to oust NFL Commissioner Roger Goodall, former player Herschel Walker is blaming Goodall for the unrest stemming from players kneeling during the national anthem.
Walker, like many other Americans, believes that Goodall did not do enough to tamp down the controversy.
“I absolutely think the protests are so upsetting, and I blame the commissioner,” said Walker, adding “I know people are going to be angry when I say it, but he should have stopped the protests at the very beginning.”“I know people are going to be angry when I say it, but he should have stopped the protests at the very beginning.”
“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.”
