VIDEO: NFL admits ‘we were wrong’ not to listen to NFL player protests

National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell admitted the league was “wrong” for failing to listen to players who protested social injustice, he said on Friday in a video.

Goodell said he wants players to continue to speak out through protesting, supported the Black Lives Matter movement, and offered his participation.

“I personally protest with you and want to be part of the much needed change in this country. Without black players, there would be no National Football League,” Goodell said.

  1. Will you be reaching out to Colin Kaepernick. Also will you allow: Kaepernick to come back to the NFL where he was discriminated against by you and all of the other staff of the NFL.

  2. Ok nice “save face” speech. Now how about reinstating Collin Kaepernick, with a public apology with back pay. And you know what? I’m a Raider fan. Yeah, it’s that serious.
