Steph Curry responds to Trump's comments: 'That's not what leaders do'

You represent all of us.

Goodell strongly responded to Trump with a lengthy statement, calling his comments "divisive" and portraying a "lack of respect for our great game and all of our players".

The president was referring to a string of protests, initiated by NFL player Colin Kaepernick, of kneeling when the national anthem played to protest the brutality and violence black people face at the hands of the police.

NBA, NFL, and NCAA squads have visited the White House in the past to celebrate championship seasons.

President Trump has made a mess of things again.

In her Opening Statement on Saturday, Judge Jeanine Pirro ripped NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the slew of NFL players and owners who criticized President Trump. "So therefore ain't no invite", James tweeted. "He's fired", Trump said to loud applause. "Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!" "Sports in America have the unique ability to bring people from all walks of life and from different points of view together to work toward or root for a common goal, and the Indianapolis Colts are proud to be a part of that tradition in our home city and state".

If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. "That's a total disrespect of everything that we stand for", Trump said, encouraging owners to act. Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who has supported the players who have knelt, said the country "needs unifying leadership right now, not more divisiveness", and San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York ripped Trump's comments as "callous".

"He (Trump) was going to break up with us before we could break up with him".

And he doubled down on Saturday and Sunday with a series of tweets to back his sad stance.

National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell issued an unusual statement about the president's remarks, criticizing the "divisive" comments without calling out Trump by name. Richard Sherman of Seattle Seahawks said the president's behavior is "unacceptable and needs to be addressed".

White House staff - exhausted by their boss's mercurial mood swings and unwillingness to accept any restrictions or guidelines for his behavior - concede that President Donald Trump's recent attacks on the National Football League are downright "nutty", but told The Daily Beast that at least Trump won't start a nuclear war by swapping insults with National Football League players.
