"DC's cap and G Hood on ESPN 1000. Wyland. Sylvie George McCaskey joins us right now, through the losses to Green Bay still sting more than the other losses always go Rams, but it's not just the rivalry and I've talked to Ryan and mad about this. It's not just that I have had a strong dislike for the team up north since I was a little kid, but How you do in your division largely determines the success of your season and I would say by and large, you're in and you're out going back to when you were playing, Tom, The Packers have been the primary obstacle to success. Thank you Missed something..

"And Chairman George McCaskey. And just about every bears fan out. There was disgusted by the tone and the tenor of this press conference that everything is fine. Trust the process we like where we're at. We've got good people after an eight Nate season where they backed into the playoffs, and then had it embarrassing Showing in the postseason. Here is Chairman George McCaskey on his faith in Pace and Maggie. I think it's the way they collaborate. Matt's been involved in player personnel decision since he's arrived here. Of course, Ryan has final say on the Selection and roster decisions, but it's how well they work together. Like I said they have vigorous discussions. And we think that their collaboration will result in the right decisions for the Bears. So here's the thing. Is that if you want stability Ryan Pace, man, Maggie, That's one thing. Okay? And I am a proponent of stability. I think that the way that people succeed in the workplace is if you give them a serious of expected situations, expected roles. The understandable is that doable Z and then you tell them here or the actual items. This is the structure. Here's the expectations. This is the stability and now you must succeed and achieve within that structure. So with the Bears, and they go look, we don't want to keep changing coaches and G M's. We did go to the playoffs too out of the last three years. We think there's some building blocks here. It's not all bad. Khalil Mack is phenomenal. Alan Robinson's really good. You know what we want Some of this that's fine. What I think, though you have to add to this press conferences and going eight. Nate and not having a solution. A quarterback is not okay. And they missed that part, and fans and media hate that. They hate when you turn on the garden hose, and they put it on your back and they tell you it's raining. Everything from bears land. Yesterday was great season. Great guys. Great organization were great. And the fact is, they're not that that's an alternate reality. They are not great. It's not all good. That Maggie gets credit for keeping the guys together in the middle of a season, where they had a six game losing streak. And okay, there's value there despite going on that massive losing streak and take themselves seemingly out of the playoff hunt. Rebounded late in the season and made the playoffs and being in the playoffs is a good feeling for your franchise in your for your fan base. But Matt Maggie's offense sucks. It just is sucky sucker. Tude Suck tax IQ. It's awful. Nagy, supposedly a chip off the Andy Reid block. What was he doing in all those Andy Reid meetings? Because I don't see anything that looks like the chief. I don't see anything that looks like Andy Reid. Nothing. Number two. The quarterback situations a disaster. Nick Foles was the worst starting quarterback of the NFL not named Cam Newton this year, and you could say less effective than Cam Newton because Cam Newton at least could run the football. Risky came in there, and he has not gotten better since his rookie season. So you have been able to fix the quarterback position and Ryan Pace by the way, invested a ton of draft collateral in drafting Mitra. Risky. So how do you trust his sense when he bypassed? On Patrick Mahomes into Sean watching for that guy. And you should say eight. Nate is not our standard. And the Bears have always been this cherished civic Jule football in Chicago that bears They just mean Maura than everything else combined. Yeah, The Cubs are beloved and the Bulls were great and there's tons of Blackhawks fans and it doesn't matter that they're not the Bears. It's the same thing in Philadelphia. All those other teams are great. They're not the Eagles. Bears or the Bears or the Bears. And the fact that the Bears organization consistently seems very happy and content with itself for going to one Super Bowl since 1985 You can't keep trotting out the 85 bears forever because I've got.

"He was immediately remorseful. Served a suspension. He said he would do better. And he came back and worked his butt off to try to help the team. Have a bigger problem with Anthony's rejection because they sat him down and they told them Listen. Watch out for this player. He's a punk is gonna try to get under your skin. With Darnell Mooney out. We really need you. Could be in this game and help this team and Anthony had the benefit of having seen Yvonne's experience, so I think they need to be evaluated separately. And I've got a bigger problem with Anthony's objection that I do with Japan's Is this future in doubt Because of that? It's not up to me. George, We appreciate your time you You've always been good with us on answering the questions that we have. You know how passionate waddle is, is a former player.

"Like we could all use some cow bell after the first hour of the show. Why, just like Cal Bell Feel like I've been hit with a cow bell? Have you really do feel that I really did I say, really suck that bad early on Really bad chairman said you were back when I was I said to you guys like I was doing radio and television. Well, I was still playing cat carried your ass. Well, that's how bad you are that you don't have to kill you. Do you? Do you know how many times the £2 of disagreement and choke football owner said that you were bad? He should have seen is a player early cut four times. I thought that was a better analogy. Well, I mean, that would have been a that would have been the CEO is a job to cut you. Football guy. And by the way did what did I say? I said Ted was the president of football ops. Yeah, that's what it is. You know, he's the president of the team runs. What's it different? Twice? Not to be president of grocery store ops. When you're president. When you're president, you're president of football operations. Your president, business operations. You're president of everything There's right. So I wasn't wrong as a third party listening to the conversation. Uh, Lot of semantics being argued about there. Yeah, well, that's what that is so very great job trying to find a different way to attack the consent roaring of your questions with semantics, Right? Look, that's a trick. You bought down the the questioner with semantics instead of having to answer or explain. What can I read you a tweet? This is really good this time, buddy, and you My buddy Lewis tweets. He runs one of the bears websites to bleacher nation bears, he said. That's good semantics right there. That's very good. Yes, it went over my head for a second. You didn't really good, really good. George is behind the glass actually giggled a little bit, so they rode up about. You know a lot of the interview, they wrote up a lot about what about the Packers. How he hates losing the Packers, how he needs to get better against the Packers, and he brings up a good point. He wrote this what he tweeted George McCaskey losses to the Packers hurt more than others. George McCaskey. After watching the Packers beat the Bears 76 to 41 this year stand pat change nothing in an organizational structure that has resulted in the Bear's losing nanite of their last 10 in the Syriza's You know what I mean? Like? Do you really want to change it? Are you really upset that things are are this bad? You say you hate losing to them. You say you need to be better. You've lost nine out of 10. You lost by 35 points to them this year, And yet you say, let's stand Pat. This is why the organization that had the meeting at Lambeau after a loss. Remember? Yeah, yeah, of course I get that Virginia was. Yeah, I was angry. Piss s so So the you said earlier. Something about why? Why do you think they remain so loyal to this class? People came to me yesterday and they didn't know the Dave McGinnis story after I tweeted that early in the day, So it's 1998 the Bears Go foreign 12 again back to back for 12 years under one E one he gets fired. Michael McCaskey is running the team. He's been running the team since the mid eighties. Not a lot of fans of Michael McCaskey. Michael McCaskey puts out a coaching search 5 to 6 people. And he ends up deciding on Dave McGinnis. Dave McGinnis was defensive coordinator at that time, and he was a former Bears linebacker coach under Dica, who's a great guy loved this great guy. Great football guy gregarious. Good guy in the front for a Bears coach, and he he announced that they hired him before McGinnis signed the deal begin its was still negotiating. Salaries for his assistance, which Michael McCaskey was trying to short change him on. So McGinnis ends up walking out of the building, not taking the job total embarrassment to the Bears. Virginia's so upset up Michael, who's her blood? Her son. She basically fires him, bumps him up to the chairman position and then goes out of the family for the first time in the history of the team to Ted Phillips, first time anyone's been president of the team. Outside. That's not a house, not a McCaskey, Ted. Hires a general manager, something they did not do since the late eighties. And gets a deal with the city of Chicago to build the stadium. Michael McCaskey was hated by Richard Daley. This like big time. I believe the McCaskey's made a deal with the devil that if If Ted got a stadium built, even though it's not a great stadium that he got a job for life, So they went from not being able to hire a general manager, not wanting to which Ted did. And not being able to build the stadium because the mayor couldn't stand the McCaskey family going in getting the job done in the city limits. I believe that it's been giving Ted this no. There's no kill mentality. He cannot be killed. Ever. He is here forever. Is that Is it business talk? Yes, That's my goodness. Time. Kill pass. Is that what you're saying? Got nine lives. You can't kill him. Okay, You've got a cheat code. I got it. I got it. But like That doesn't mean you can't.

"The president of the Bears do they need do just cut ties and go? Yeah, You've been here long enough. You're out. Move him over where it's clear that guy handles business stuff on Lee. Because it certainly hasn't worked with him at the helm of the franchise from a winds and loss perspective. 3123323776 all rights. Go to the phone lines to talk to you. Let's go to the phone lines, and we could start with George on the north side. Hey, George. Hey, how you guys doing? Thanks. Taking my calls something Hey, man, I love this show y'all and what's up with, you Know House music real quick way Don't do this, but I wish we would I wish you well, let's go. But you know what? That's why I've got my podcast going, George. Quick, Quick scenario. No scenario, but I know we don't have a shot in hell. Of producers with these two quarterback we have. I don't think we have the So the, uh the resources to get move up and get a good quarterback in the draft. Is college happen. Nick and option here is it's just a question. Colin secured the bag, and I think that he's happy away from the NFL. That's that's what I think because here's the thing. If he really want that opportunity, he would keep his foot on the pedal s O. I think George that that ship has sailed. I think he's happy. Away from the NFL. And and actually, George. He's doing Maura way from the NFL that he would be on the field because of his awareness and helping people. I think that's a positive. Agree. Yeah, I appreciate the call. George have a great day. He buys clothes for those that want to get themselves in a position to be employed by your colleague. Yeah, so I think that's It's even more meaningful. That's even more meaningful than what he does on the field. Let's go to Nikki and Fox Lake. Hey, Nikki. Hey, Hey, enough 30 years Good thirties here, and even I know that Ted Phillips is the puppet of the McCaskey's. Please come out of guys. I know. I know. You guys can't see it, but I can't. I'm hanging it up. Have a good one. What can't we can't we set Ou hung up. What can we say? What can we say? I think that he's the puppet of the McCaskey's. I think that's what he was referring to. Okay? Yeah, well, I don't understand what that has to do with this discuss, he said he's saying that he has nothing to do with it. He's not the problem. The problem is the McCaskey's. He's just their puppet. So McCaskey's are the owners of the Bears so of the Bears team. So will you stop being a bears fan? Because the McCaskey's air the owners, will you just turn your turn a blind eye? Gee organization because you don't like ownership. You'll still be a bears fan Now, when it comes to Ted Ted Phillips. We have already said Ted has should not be around football operations should be around the finance. I want him to be able to be. The conduit to get a new stadium. That's what I want from him. Because you can't. Here's the reason why I want that for the Bears because I want what they would the Cubs have your bears fan you want with the Cubs have as far as building a community around the Bears. That makes sense. Right? From a financial standpoint. Question all yours, your stores and your restaurants and that whole thing. You want that around the entertainment complex? That's what you want. That's what you want. And so I wanted to be able to do that. But I'm not sure what you're meant, Nikki, right, so make him president. Business operations and you know, new acquisitions or whatever you wanna call it. Hey, man. Where's Ted? I haven't seen him in the office. He's in Arlington Heights. Negotiating to buy Arlington Park. Yeah. And so what I want. I want George to look at it and say I will hire a football man for my football man. Correct. It's important, correct. And that's why I think you and I are in agreement. I don't know about the name like I've throughout Peyton Manning. I think he'd be amazing. But I want Louis. Riddick is my general manager. He's the nuts and bolts of were taken. Jeff Miller in the first round and Jonathan Hood is I want someone above him. Sure, that is the face of my franchise. Whoever that is, yes, 3123323776 years day. The problem with that, Who is going to choose that person? That's gonna be George. That's got to be George. But George was in the hiring processes of Matt Maggie George was in the hiring processes of Ryan Pace. George was in the hiring process of Marc Trestman. George was in the hiring process of Phil Emery like I agree with you. That's exactly what they need. They need their Theo Epstein. The major problem is the people that would choose that person to be the Theo Epstein are the same people that made all the bad choices that got us to this point, including Ted Phillips and George McCaskey. Like And you can't hire Ernie Accorsi again and outside consultant. I think it's like a chicken or the egg situation. We all agree with the Bears need. The problem is, are they going to hire the right person to fill that void? Because they've made so many bad choices. Leader why you hire a proven commodity like Tom didn't have to go to his home where he goes, Feel any good. He knew he was good. You want the world's a lifetime thing Where a guy of field Epstein's caliber is on the free agent market. There's a chance to get him like, Who's that name and football? Okay, pick pick a guy asking you like, okay, Give me a name of a guy that just so happens to be the best in the world that doing what he does, and they're old, but Ozzie Newsome is the name I'm hearing. He's having some health issues. Yeah, bring him in any way But a guy like John Schneider of the Seahawks don't want Bo Duk E. You acted in the eighties, but I don't know if one of the guys in the Dukes of Hazzard work Never watch that show. I did. Okay. I wanna make sure. Yeah, It's Catherine Bach. Um, did you own Daisy Dukes cap? I feel like an appoint. You did know my girlfriend. Oh. Anyway, I would go. Okay. Who are the Get a big White board and George's office and write down the 10 best like general manager executive types in the NFL, or the best I can to board the blood. It be hard to be able to write on it. That's what chalk is for. Why wasn't I hate for it? Every time I look, I go. Okay. Ozzie Newsome, I'm with you. Ozzie Newsome put his name up there. John Schneider, who's built the Seahawks put his name up there. John Dorsey, who's not even working for a team right now put his name up there and list the 10 best..

"See you hear the passion from George McCaskey. Here is hatred for the Packers. You know, you heard the record that I gave 13 and 28 since 2000. Basically like 99 is when Ted took over. I believe that does include the 99 season when I calculated that believe that is Ted Phillips. His record is president against the Packers, 13 and 28. You know all of this. You know he wants to win, or I think that I don't know anymore. Then you throw all this stuff at him about Head and the record. And while he says he doesn't meddle E does tell you that these in charge of Ryan paces fate right? And then he consults with with Tad number one over the future of Ryan and Matt. And why don't you want to change and he just won't buy a few things here. First of all. George is always picked up the phone for us. Okay, now we put in if I'm not in my right, Adam, we asked for. We asked for George. We asked for Matt. We asked for Ryan, right? That was my Yes. I went to favor and I asked for all of it, okay? George is always the guy that picks up the phone and talks to us. We may not agree with some of the decisions last two years he has yes. Um So I'm saying, like I give him credit for that. I go give him credit for coming on. And talking with us, Um You know again, Like I said, I I I'm not necessarily in a green and green with a lot of what he says. It's the reason why I'm with you. I think what I take most from this interview is Thought that Ted Phillips isn't playing a large role with regard to football decisions up at Halas Hall, I think is a false statement, and I think that you know Yes, it's easy to say he's not involved in day to day operations. Of course he's not calling the Jets sweep toe cold come out on the goal line. Against Jacksonville. That's not Ted. Okay? Ted's also not asking why you're not giving the ball to to David Montgomery. Ted's also not asking why you chose jail and Johnson. In the second round of this past draft. I get all of that, but that's why I circled back and asked him the question. If for whatever reason, the decision needs to be made that Ryan Paces run is the general manager of this team. Who makes that decision, and his answer was Ted. So like that is all you need to know with regard to the question of whether or not Ted's involved in football decisions, right and when you say to yourself. This is a team that's been around for 101 years. The charter franchise. This is a team that for years can't win. And sustain it. They've been toe back to back post seasons in the last 25 years. 10506 Okay, very few post seasons in general, they can't get the quarterback. Right. So it's a systemic issue. It's it's year in and year out, so change that Change it at the top and who is involved in all the hiring of the football people. While he's not a football guy, it's Ted Phillips. When George McCaskey needs advice in Georgia, and minutely doesn't know a lot about football. Who does he go to? He goes to another man who doesn't know a lot about football. That to me is wrong. And when you look in the mirror when you want to evaluate your own team, and you say, Where have we missed? Why do we consistently lose to the Packers? Why do we consistently miss out on the quarterback's? Why do we not get to the playoffs More consistently? You say we've got toe Look what's poisoning the water. And while we've changed the quote football people, the one constant has been the guy who's been the president of the team. You have a professional football team. What's the most important component of your professional football team? 3 53 Man roster. What is the what? The most important component of a football team. Would suggest to you that it's the talent on that team coaches your important There's a lot of things that are important, but the talent on that team will define you more readily and more frequently than any other aspect of it. If you've got a great quarterback and good offensive personnel, you're going to score a lot of points and win a lot of games, right if you've got better players than we do. So You could then connect the dots and suggest that the general manager of the football team Is, in most instances, the most important person inside that organization. Could you make a statement for that? Yes, right. Who's in charge of hiring the most important person inside your franchise head? That guy is a football decision maker. If that guy's in charge of deciding rue your architect of your organization is that guys wielding tremendous power and if he gets it wrong? Your roster isn't gonna look very good. And whatever coach comes in isn't going to have the necessary groceries to make you a delicious meal. Right? When you're the president and your GM goes rogue. You had all the situation for that. You were the guy who hired him. You're the guy who he reports to Allowing him to go rogue in the most important decisions of your team. You know this because you've been covering this team how many general managers has Ted Phillips been part of firemen to remember. This is a team that went from Venecia at the end of the eighties till the early two thousands when they hired Angelo. Okay, so they get Ted. And Ted hires Angelo. Angela's got to tell you Run, they 10 year run. And then after Angelo, you went toe Amery, which was here for two or three years, and then you went to pace which over the last six years, and Ryan hasn't been a dumpster fire. There've been some nice elections, but overall, you've wished too often at the top of the draft and the most important component of any professional franchise. I'll are you is your quarterback and you made a drastic mistake there over six years. Ryan. Good guy. Has a record of less than that's 10 games below 500. There's nary a playoff win on his resume. The point I'm making is The guy who is then going to serve as the consultant, so to speak, or one of the loudest voices in the room with regard to hiring the next general manager who is the architect of your 53 man roster. That guy's wielding tremendous power. Yeah, we got full phone lines. Your reaction to the Ted Phillips interview. Josh. Amantino, you're on ESPN 1008 Josh. Hey, guys, good to talk to you. Listen, if this is gonna sound insane, but keeping Maggie and pace was the right decision and follow the twisted logic, But here's why Because they have done some things well. And have improved a little bit not nearly enough, but I'm not satisfied with it. But according to the people who matter As long as you're willing to admit, Hey, we fucked it that you're going to own it and not embarrass them in the media. You embarrass you embarrass us on the field. But as long as you're willing to be a stand up guy and say yes, we struggled. That was my bad. That's enough accountability for them. So the reason why they should stay is at least maybe they can do some things right? Because until George or Ted Get out of the way or changes the way they do think they were gonna hire new people that were any good anyway, right? That That's the problem. It's rinse and repeat over. They keep they keep. They keep getting it wrong over and over when they start from scratch, and it's because of the way it's been forever. It's an interesting point, Jeremy and Wheat field, Jeremy, You're on ESPN 1000. Hey, guys, How's it going?.

Murkowski's 'Courage' in Splitting with McConnell 'Could Be Contagious'
"There there has has been been a a small small crack crack in in an an otherwise otherwise unified unified stance stance the the Republicans Republicans have have been been taking taking about about president president trump's trump's impeachment impeachment trial trial Republican Republican senator senator Lisa Lisa Murkowski Murkowski of Alaska spoke to local TV station KTVU years she said when she heard the Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to coordinate with the White House she was quote disturbed Makowski spoke about ascenders duty to be an impartial juror to me it means that we have to take that step back from being hand in glove with the defense Liz Ruskin of Alaska public media has covered center McAlister you for years and joins us from anchorage this morning was thanks for being here hi good morning so does this sound like the the Makowski you know yeah absolutely it does and I think that it's really just in her nature to be a centrist to seek middle ground like this and also you'll note that she's criticizing leader McConnell on process and that is very important to her sticking to procedure and tradition that's that's how she rolls well I mean anyone hearing this is probably going to get a jump to the question of how she might vote in terms of whether or not to remove president trump or or are you getting any indication of that from this I'm I know and I would think it's a it's a mistake to read too much into this criticism she's also been critical of house speaker Pelosi is handling impeachment and she's criticized our house Democrats on their process nearly to the point of saying that they've got a weak case it if we can play some tape here I've got something that senator McCaskey told me in mid December right after saying house leaders should have gone to court if they wanted to hear from witnesses who refused to appear as a consequence I think you have a record that the house will base its articles on that is perhaps not as full a record as it needs to be so that was just before the articles of impeachment came out but she seems to under cut both of them with that statement yeah although she says she so careful with her language it it sounds like and and I wonder how much always yeah that that's very much her too so can you take me back to other times that she's parted ways with with fellow Republicans in and sort of how use other things play out well sure there was the famous vote in twenty seventeen on health care when she was one of three Republicans who killed a bill to repeal the affordable Care Act and then the confirmation of justice Cavan on she opposed his confirmation on quite narrow grounds as she said his behavior at his confirmation hearing that a motion and bitterness he showed she said that was not in keeping with the code of judicial conduct but she also called him a good man kind of splitting the baby there it's also worth pointing out I think that other than Cavanah I do not think she's voted against any of president trump's judges give me that the political context for her at this moment how secure is her Senate seat in Alaska well she's not up again until twenty twenty two but it seems like a large swath of the middle of of Alaskans really admires her and you'll recall back in twenty ten she lost in the Republican primary to a tea party favorite and then one in a writing and that was with the help of a lot of Democrats and Alaska native groups are her base out she draws a lot of support from Democrats and moderate Republicans and she's proved that she really doesn't need her party to win and then she regularly aggravates both the left and the right alternately depending on her votes do you think she could have influence over this trial in the Senate I think so but I think we would see that more on votes on the rules or on whether to call witnesses alright Liz Ruskin of Alaska public media joining us from anchorage talk about senator McCaskey thanks so much really appreciate it

For the trip to Michigan city. And he was late because his brother Frank wanted him to check his body weight before he went on the trip in by the time. He got to the doc on the Chicago river, the eastern had capsized and. He was not one of the fatalities. But he was listed as one in the newspapers while van I didn't know and the next day a couple of his fraternity brothers from the university of Illinois came to his home to express condolences to his mother, and they were very surprised and delighted to see him have a mass of the door. Your your grandfather went to the university of Illinois as well. Yes, he went there in nineteen fourteen. Fifteen sixteen seventeen he lettered in football, basketball and baseball, and he was an engineering major. And he plays sports with him. He was the most valuable player in the nineteen nineteen Rose Bowl. He played right field for the nineteen nineteen New York Yankees. And tell me a little bit more about how he got into into football. After the Yankees placed him with the minor league club. He decided that he didn't want to try and be a professional baseball player anymore. So in the fall of nineteen nineteen he played professional football with the Hammond pros and on March eighteenth, nineteen twenty George Chamberlain of the Decatur starch-making company met with my grandfather in Chicago and offered him the opportunity to learn the starch business and to play sports for the Decatur Staley's.

My grandfather Ali was pitching and they met after the game and then work at western electric together. And eventually got married while your grandfather was quite in optimist. I mean, he really made it through a lot. It was important to be an optimist when he was here because he saw the country and help the country through two world wars and the depression. Very difficult for the first forty years of the bears existence to survive.

"That the team supports the nfl's new national anthem policy but they acknowledge that the issues behind protests and plot and they applaud players social activism so the kinda every line there yeah both ways don't touch this and a little touch of that everyone's right you're both right right can we move on and have a look houses now kill ya house row conduit yeah whatever all right now here's what mccaskey told reporters that the first players who took a knee did it for a purpose i players to take a knee during the national anthem did soda bring attention to issues police misconduct and social inequality these are legitimate issues that deserve discussion and action as a country we can do better as part of the founding fathers charge to us two or more perfect union commissioner goodell said very well and it bears repeating it was unfortunate that onfield protests created a false perception among many thousands of nfl players were unpatriotic this is not and was never the case wasn't false perception of many it was a it was a an enforced perception of one it was was the commander in chief of the united states saying that he the commander melter i should say some commanderinchief of me no boss me man the you know you had the commander in chief of the military the president's saying that's what that was this was this was a direct insult to the troops themselves and and and continuing to to make that point over and over and over and over again at sometimes fair rather aggressively and so that's where the misperception was but it does seem to me that it is possible you can say likely that the the president was doing that because it was a political wedge issue that he was wearing and he did when he talked about let's get some of those bs and firearm and tell them all that yeah you just wonder what's going to happen for two players that defy this policy teams said they'll cover finds things like that mccaskey was asked about that today he says they still haven't decided on what they'll do for individual team enforcement or anything like that nfl has a lot of fish.

"The nfl lives in one mindset and they do it what pleases them that's really what the mindset is commissioner roger goodell and the other owners including the mccaskey's they're ignorant what they are ignorant about is players representing their city representing their neighborhood and their country by protesting the ongoing never ending violence and police brutality cases that we see on the news on your social media page on a weekly basis when you live in the land of pleasantville and you turn a blind eye to what said and you don't have the discussion with the players association edicts like this are rendered let's hear from roger goodell the commissioner of the national football league because in a statement released by the league team motors decided that starting the season players can stay in the locker room during the national anthem if players take anita protests say on our in black and brown people being unjustly shot by law enforcement roger goodell can potentially find both teams and players the thoughts from the commissioner we made modifications to our anthem policy we did that this morning after a great deal discussion yesterday again this morning it was unanimously adopted by the club's several hundreds of here they're going to give you their perspective but from our standpoint this is a great opportunity to continue that partnership with our players and keep the focus on the progress and the programs that we think are so important in the communities were proud of that support and we think that that's how change is really going to be made clearly our objective is a league into all thirty two clubs which was unanimous is that we want people to be respectful national anthem we want people to stand that's all personnel and make sure that they treat this a moment in a respectful fashion that's something that we think we oh we have been very sensitive and making sure that we get players choices but we do believe that that moment is an important moment and one that we going to focus on there is roger goodell the commissioner of the national football league you know i thought that eric at home from pro football weekly hit it right on the head because he wrote the peace and says by the end of the.
