NFL Creates 'Social Justice Committee' To Help Kneelers Push Message

The NFL has announced the formation of a "social justice committee."

New York, NY – The National Football League announced Tuesday that it has officially established an owner-player “social justice committee” created to help the league better focus on social and racial justice issues.

"We feel that we are going to make significant progress as we have more meetings, as we get more focused on our efforts, it's going to actually come to life," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a press conference on Jan. 23. "And frankly, we will get better as the days go by."

Goodell said the committee will focus on education, economic development, community and police relations, and the criminal justice system.

He said the committee is just the beginning of the process, but that it will help them build greater awareness and help them focus on social justice and racial justice initiatives, according to ABC News.

The committee, made up of five players and five owners, was the league’s latest step in its seven-year, $90 million commitment to players’ social justice issues, Sports Illustrated reported.

It’s also the first tangible step in a quest to try to get players to stop kneeling, which they hope will stop the rapid retreat of fans from NFL stadiums and televised games.

Former 49er Colin Kaepernick caused massive controversy when he began the trend of NFL players kneeling when the national anthem was played before football games. Fans expressed their opinions with their wallets and the NFL has been struggling on all fronts.

Ignoring the disastrous ratings, the NFL decided to full embrace the “social justice” aspect of the game, but hit a snag, the Daily Wire reported.

Initially, the NFL had said it was considering creating a fund to bankroll social justice efforts, but had to walk the idea back after it was revealed that the funding for those new social justice initiatives would have come out of funds previously designated for breast cancer and veterans’ charities.

what's the conviction rate?? ANYONE can file charges, most are false due to an arrest and wanting to get out of it or win the lotto.

@Gator61 neither BLM nor the black panthers were about killing police.

Get your facts straight, and please don't post the 3 videos you're thinking about posting to prove BLM wants dead police.

In case you do it anyway, 1. It's a group called Millions March NYC, 2. The former leader of BLM St Louis was relieved of his position and BLM released a public statement denouncing him, and 3. Micah Johnson was not BLM, but Hotep.

@Gator61 and a whole lot of famous rappers don't have convictions. Would you like me to name them?

@Just-My-Thoughts I don't think I know it all. I know plenty, but not all. I'm just willing to research and respond intelligently, while most in here (you included) spit quips from Fox News with no backup research to your claims.

Check your sources better, clown.

@ProCop yet another insult about my ass. What is it with you and other guys' asses? What's next, inviting me to suck your balls?

You are Lost in Space. Every Felon under 21 I handled in 24 years working Corrections was an aspiring Rapper! Look on the bright side they are very good at taking each other out! Now if only the NFL thugs would learn that behavior!

ALL libtards use the same tired old talking points just Like Hillary! Hire a New Script Writer! Try thus trick, Stop Breaking the Law and stop crying about being the VICTIM! Personal Reliability is something you might give a try! By the Way, You are OWED NOTHING, go out and earn it!

@Gator61 I'm confused. Earlier you referred to famous rappers, now you're referring to aspiring rappers.

My offer still stands to name a list of famous rappers who have never been convicted.

You are VERY CONFUSED but that is Life in General! 99% of Rappers fit 3 categories out on parole in Jail awaiting trial or not been caught yet! Now that should clear it up even for you. 2 of your favorites Russell Simons and Snoop Dog are convicted felons. I could be here all night listing all the different ones I learned about while working inside Jails and Prisons. One thing they do well is kill each other. Then you have the ones that go to Prison rather than cooperate with the Murder Investigation of a fellow rapper. Get your mind off Rappers, this is about a Culture of Crime, Narcotics. Child Abuse, Woman Abuse do as you please and get upset when you break the law and get punished for it. If you idiots are trying to be intimidating you FAILED. If somehow you think you are Providing Information, FAILED AGAIN! Using the VICTIM RESPONSE to try and escape getting hit with facts! YOU STILL LOSE! Why are you on a Police Blog? Shouldn't you be on CNN crying about being VICTIMIZED by a Cruel Society!

Have not watched these thugs in years.
