The NFL’s joke of a commissioner Roger Goodell made a lame attempt at damage control on Wednesday afternoon at a press conference, following President Trump calling out the league again for its utter lack of respect for this country’s flag and veterans. (VIDEO BELOW)

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says players should stand for the national anthem, speaking out amid the furor over some players’ protests before games.

“We believe everyone should stand for the national anthem. That’s an important part of our policy,” Goodell said in a press conference Wednesday in New York.

But Goodell said he would not commit to making a rule stating players must stand for the anthem.

“Our players will state to you publicly they are not doing this in any way to be disrespectful to the flag,” Goodell said. He said the league is “not looking to get into politics, but what we’re looking to do is to continue to give people a focus on football.” 

The commissioner said that about half a dozen players are still protesting, and the NFL will “try to get that to zero.”

Goodell at one point praised the “great character” of the NFL’s players.

He also discussed the players’ “very deep understanding and tremendous knowledge of the issues that are going on in all of our communities.”

Goodell also, using a trendy leftist term, blathered something about “commitment to work together with our players on issues of social justice.” (VIDEO BELOW)

The Twitterverse response to Goodell’s fearful cucking has been brutal:
