Josh Norman: Ignore the President

AP

Although Washington cornerback Josh Norman and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers may not see eye-to-eye when it comes to compensation for the men who throw footballs, they agree on one point that has become very important to the NFL in recent days.

Rodgers has said that the league and the players should ignore President Donald J. Trump as he continues to throw shade and/or tweets at the NFL over the anthem issue. Norman, in comments to Kevin Clark of TheRinger.com, has provided the same advice to the league, in more colorful fashion.

“You continue to do what you do, because guess what?” Norman said. “You have a product, and that product is f–king banking. It’s the no. 2 product in the world outside of soccer — you cannot beat it. Those checks will keep coming regardless of what you do. I wouldn’t tell them to do a f–king thing. This guy is going to out of office in two years. I think we’ll be OK. Trust me: The accounts will be fine. I wouldn’t put emphasis on it. Because the fans are going [to] come. It’s not like you’ve got scabs on the field like in 1987. So what if it’s a down year? Who gives a f–k? Next year you’ll be great. It’s not going to catastrophically disappear because one guy said something.”

While Norman is right that the NFL should simply ignore the President, those who assume he’ll be out of office in two years probably also assumed he wouldn’t be in office in the first place. Likewise, Norman’s take overlooks the reality that Trump has discovered political plutonium by accident, giving others of a similar ideology a button to repeatedly press as needed.

So whether it’s the current president or the next one or the one after that, for as long as any NFL players protest during the anthem, a prominent politician will call them and the league out for it. Because it works.

Even if it doesn’t actually impact the league’s bottom line (and there’s still no evidence that it has or will), it rallies a base and/or provides a convenient distraction whenever and wherever a convenient distraction is needed. Which means that attacks and catcalls from those in office or hoping to be in office will be part of the NFL’s new normal, regardless of whether Donald J. Trump is or isn’t sitting in the Oval Office.

  1. “This guy is going to out of office in two years. I think we’ll be OK”

    I don’t think Josh will handle 6 1/2 more years of Trump…. Josh will be out of the league before Trump is out of the White House

  2. The last two Republican Presidents could not capture the majority of voters. Fact. If not for an antiquated Electoral College (which most Trump voters couldn’t explain if their lives depended on it,) the Despicables would not be so emboldened.

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Trump has got to go.

  3. Norman is right. Ignore him just like his cabinet does. Example; Trump tweets that Sessions should fire Mueller and Sessions laughs it off. If I did that to my boss i’d be gone, but Trump is weak.

  4. Out in 2 yrs, huh rocket scientist? Yeah – they said the same thing about Obama. Perhaps you should put your Communications degree from Coastal Carolina to better use.

  5. it wasn’t by accident, the Military Services are paying sponsors and the NFL let their employee’s start protesting a paid sponsor on company time.

    the NFL could sever the relationship, but then that would be a bigger PR disaster then one currently going on.

    In 2 years, the NFL has lost viewership that had taken the previous 5 years to build. The money continues to roll in, but I expect the TV viewership to be down for the 3rd year in row.

  6. Trump Train steam rolls Washington. We’re just getting started. Vision 2020.

    Josh, take a knee and see what happens. The President is the voice of the people, and the people have spoken. Take your racism and your phony degrees back to Carolina.

  7. Don’t the kneelers know that they are making things worse, not better? It seems like the lower his intelligence, the more apt the player is to kneel.

  8. Josh you better be carefull – Trum has quite a potty mouth and he will be calling you names on twitter real soon – because you know – that’s what a respected president does – calls people names like every other 5 year old does!

  9. Trump lost to the other guy by 3.5 million votes.

    A real candidate would beat him like a rented mule.

  10. Been saying this about Trump since before the election. Man is truly a fool and he won’t be in office again. His tariffs are hurting the great economy he inherited. Now we have to give aide to farmers who previously didn’t need it and companies are moving their factories over seas to avoid this stupid trade war. His support goes down every day and those who continue to support Trump look more like fools all the time. Your hate and racism will not win out.

  11. Hopefully the traitor is removed before the two years it up. either way this stain of an administration is a disgrace to country. Vote in November for the country not the treasonous GOPers

  12. It sure is a joy to watch Norman suit up in the burgundy and gold, but listening to him talk is a cringe filled roller coaster ride that never ends. Josh, please stop talking and focus on Arizona week 1.

  13. If the players truly care about the issue they would embrace the President and try to work WITH him. Currently Trump is working on prison reform and job training for prisoners to reduce recidivism. Also the President has shown a willingness to consider pardons and has reached out to NFL players to work with him on pardons as he has done successfully with Kim Kardashian. The players are acting like spoiled children.

  14. Fact….If the black vote would have shown up to the voting booth in 2016 like they did for the two Obama elections,Trump would have lost the Electoral vote. So by not voting you have essentially chosen your President. You may not like it but it is true.

  15. Ignore Josh Norman – he’s paid millions and plays like he’s paid 5 cents. What a racist action by Norman – if a white player had said that to Obama, it would have been called racist.

    I take offense to this. Clearly the electoral college is a school (free of charge, of course. Paid for by the tax payers) that teaches you how the ‘majority’ works across the country, not just a few highly populated blue states with millions of illegal votes. Is that right? It’s right isn’t it.

  17. What’s the difference between the President telling us to not condone the players disrespecting the National Anthem, and the players going against that, and these players telling us to not listen to the President? Luckily we all live where we can make our own choices, so I won’t listen to either one of them.

  18. While his vernacular left me dizzy, the point of his take is spot on. Trump is a master at what he does, the players are not going to beat him, ever.

    If they stand he’ll gloat. If they kneel he’s gonna hiss. So they should go back to doing what they were doing before he referred to a person of color as a S.O.B. in front of an all white crowd last fall; stand and honor America, and stop giving energy to a troll.

    The “antiquated electoral college” has saved us from becoming the United States of California.

  20. Trump may not even make it to 2020? Reelected? Highly doubtful.

    Unless the DNC messes up again. This is all of their fault. Nobody wanted “her” nobody liked “her”. She was the least popular candidate to ever run for office in America’s history. That is literally the only way he wins and even that is a stretch. There is a better than average chance that he will be the least popular candidate to run if he runs again. He may be a bit too busy defending himself (The People vs Donald Trump) to run for another term.

  21. There are storm clouds on the booming economy, which Trump inherited from Obama. Inflation has outpaced wage gains, Trump’s tariffs are starting to bite, and a recession in late 2019. As deeply unpopular as Trump is, if the economy goes even a little bit sour he’s toast in 2020.

    And that doesn’t even mention the likelihood that he’s going to be charged as an unidicted co-conspirator to a treasonous offense.

  22. I wouldn’t dismiss the possibility that Trump will win re-election, in a slash and burn political effort. The only thing that will dislodge him is a bad economy. In the meantime, the NFL can’t ignore him, as a significant portion of the NFL’s aging fan base is with Trump. The owners are businessmen and they know what butters their bread.

  23. 1st Amendment hypocrites. The constitution and the Bill of Rights only applies when it’s good for them. Also, Trump doesn’t like being taped yet we still don’t know what went down in the Putin Trump private secret meeting. MAMA. Make America a Monarchy Again.

  24. The guy is actually re-establishing us a to-be-taken-seriously world power….why would I want him out of office in two years? This is why you cant take ignorant people who are athletically gifted seriously. Worry about what he is doing on the world stage a little bit and stop watching late-night hooligans.

  25. Just because this barely educated black man has a job with the talents he’s been blessed by god with, makes a ton of money, it’s still not someone I want to be taking advice from on my political beliefs.

  26. I take offense to this. Clearly the electoral college is a school (free of charge, of course. Paid for by the tax payers) that teaches you how the ‘majority’ works across the country, not just a few highly populated blue states with millions of illegal votes. Is that right? It’s right isn’t it.

    The Electoral. College is the HillyBilly Equaliizr so the majority wont rule.Three million more didn’t vote for Agent Orange …..that’s a lot of non hillbilly’s .

    Josh is right. ….ignore the Liar in Chief.

    Not to mention the income tax is right on currently on par for the second quarter. However the corporate tax is darn near non existent due to the unnecessary and unwarranted corporate tax cut (The economy was doing FINE!). We are already several hundred millions of dollars behind schedule on the corporate side. We all know it’ll be us working stiffs making up the difference. How dare we ask Apple or Google to pay their share of taxes. Lobbies (bribery) should be highly illegal in a “free market”. Lobbies (bribes) prevent a “free market”. Yet it’s the yucks that are convinced that it’s the poor people dictating policy and taking all their tax dollars. Heck poor folks don’t dictate anything. That’s more or less what the protests are about. Poor and powerless don’t control anything at any time in history. American history or world history.

  32. Ignore him! Unfortunately, the haters are obsessed. It’s what social media is all about, vile comments.

  33. Ignore president Trump if you want to. That is fine. How will you ignore all of the NFL Fans that agree with him or the ratings slide the anthem protest has caused?

    You mean like alienating our friends and emboldening our enemies? How’s that North Korea denuclearization working out? Not very well, I’m hearing. ISIS is making a comeback as well, bet you’re not hearing about that on Fox News. Trump is a miserable failure as a President, domestic policy, foreign policy, trade….you name it, he is terrible. Like I said, the slightest whiff of economic trouble – inflation, recession, stagflation – he’s toast.

    And that is to say nothing of the fact that he is the subject of a criminal investigation.

  43. It doesnt “work” its whats right, its not the minority that thinks its disrespectful, its the majority! Including on this site. Whine about an issue but dont actual solve the problem

  44. Josh would probably be right, seeing as people will always go back to football because the game is so fun to watch, and the NFL has a monopoly on that…so when Trump is out of office, people that had left would probably forget and return to the NFL…however, what if another league like say the XFL starts to emerge and take a big slice of that market share of fans and sponsors from the NFL… If i have my timelines right, the XFL starts back up next year and plans on capitalizing on angry and displaced NFL fans…the NFL should do what it needs to do to keep their entire fan base happy before their lower ratings translate into a massive boost for the XFL…

    It’s actually kind of easy to explain. If you don’t campaign in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, then lose Ohio and Florida, you probably are not going to be President.

    I removed one sentence from Normans’ statement. It also removes the political line.

    I don’t like politics in my football. Before it has been a comfortable break from real life to enjoy the game. That sound you hear are droves of people leaving.

  60. For the LAST time; NFL ratings are NOT down if you take into account that ALL TV ratings are down (due to streaming services, YouTube, piracy and a host of other non-football related issues). Revenue actually INCREASED last year and pro football is still outperforming just about every other genre.

    If you don’t believe me, Google it! And remember, just because your favourite autocrat tells you something that doesn’t make it true. All these so called boycotts are affecting the NFL about as much as the truth affects Donald Trump!

    51 statewide popular vote winners-take-all (except for Nebraska & Maine), rather than a National winner-take-all, which utilizes a highly decentralized system making it more representative of the states/population’s represented, whereby Electoral votes are distributed based on the number of Congressional districts + 2 for each Senate seat. Nearly impossible to manipulate due to thousands of precincts overseen by 51 Election Commissioners, but possible to influence by outside Givernments if the Executive Branch and Intelligence Committe are emboldened Democrat/Socialists purely ignorant to the realities of A) The Modern World, B) The Constitution, or C) Both.

    A cowboy as a hillbilly Trumper giving math lessons now that is rich. I bet even money that Obama was not your President for eight years so you blatant hillbilly hypocracy is duly noted….now back to kicking some meadow muffins BobbyJean.

    ———–

    It’s people like you who pretty much guarantee Trump will win another term.

  74. The president is a clown.

    Those who choose to support him, lemmings.

    “I alone can fix this.”

    A man who can stand in front of America and make a statement like that is immediately disqualified from running for president

    Sounds like some unhinged Snowflake has their man-bun too tight.

  76. Just ask the worst Presidential candidate in history, Hillary Clinton, she will tell you. All you snowflakes want the real reason for losing just check your mirror.

    ____

    Hillary was awful. I used to tell my republican friends when Obama won “get better candidates”. McCain was OK, almost voted his way, but Palin was an anchor. Romney in 2012? That guy was a stiff.

    Dems took it to a new level with Clinton, she is hated by so many people. She unified people to Trumps side. They shot themselves in the foot.

    Point is, I don’t remember a recent election where both candidates were actually good. Its always one, or both stink. Last time, they both stunk. Trump just a little less.

  77. Trump should be thrown off of twitter for abuses of guidelines. That would help his flagging PR numbers better than anything else he could do.

    Hillary had 3.5 million more votes huh? Imagine the difference if one of the voting requirements was that you contributed to society (paid more in taxes than you received in benefits). Wonder what the swing would look like then…

    Or that, you know, you are actually a citizen? Or that you only voted once? Or, like in the 2008 election, you didn’t get a free pack of Virginia Killing Sticks for voting?

    Living in Mass for 60+ years has taught me that the slimiest of the slimy are not in the GOP. Rather our 3 of our last 4 Speakers of the House ended up in jail. Or that lovely Dem City Councillor Wilkerson who was caught stuffing bribe money into her unmentionables? Then there was Billy Bulger. All bastions of the left.

    Both of you guys need to get a mirror. The republicans are just as dirty as the dems and if you don’t think so, you have your head buried in the sand.

    The Republicans favorite thing to do is gerrymandering because they dont have the population base to win everywhere.

    Dems like to overwhelm with suspect votes.

    We are all being played, corporate money runs this country on both sides of the aisle. And its just getting worse and worse.

    Yeah, good point. Then she would have probably another 10-20M votes over Drumpf. Fact – Red States have the most welfare recipients. The Red States (outside of Texas & FLA) cannot even support themselves and need the Blue States to survive. Red States are the WELFARE states.

  81. Man, I’m gonna vote democrat next time. They love socialism, no borders, illegal voting, abortions, transgender bathrooms, police hating. That’s a platform I can get behind!

  82. I don’t think these players realize the trap they are falling into. They have this false sense of security because the idiot press is behind them.

    The bear pokes them to raise awareness amongst the mainstream audience; then the player respond with nonsense like this.

    If and when they don’t stand – like him or not, Trump has this queued up to be on every front page…and it is going to once again cost the NFL big time.

  83. I would have never believed it until Trump made it OK for closet racists to expose themselves, but it appears like approx 30% of the country thinks black people shouldn’t be able to play in the NFL either. Or if they do, they just shut up and play. Just ignore these and shove it down their throats.

    We may be “the dumbest folk ever to walk the earth” but we were smart enough not to allow our candidate to lose to Hillary. 🙂

  85. Fans–ignore the NFL until they get it right. Until players like Norman lose their million dollar paychecks, they aren’t really sticking up for a cause anyway.

  86. Google a map of Red vs Blue counties from the election. Then get back to me about majorities.

    ——-

    Vacant land doesn’t vote. People vote. Big cities = more people.

  87. Wow, Josh Norman gets it. See the forest for the trees, my friends. Don’t let Trump’s bad policies interrupt the cash cow.

    In his last year with the Panthers and first year with Washington, he was emailing specific media people talking trash, then backed it up. Now he nails this on the head.

    Dude is probably one of the smartest people in the NFL.

  88. Can’t wait for Trump’s landslide victory in 2020.

    Cool, I hope you bet a few mortgage payments on that, lol.

    Been saying this about Trump since before the election. Man is truly a fool and he won’t be in office again. His tariffs are hurting the great economy he inherited. Now we have to give aide to farmers who previously didn’t need it and companies are moving their factories over seas to avoid this stupid trade war. His support goes down every day and those who continue to support Trump look more like fools all the time. Your hate and racism will not win out.
    ————–

    Hurting the great economy? We’re still in a depression. Fake numbers and money printing while blowing another bubble isn’t a great economy.

    Obama just lied to Democrats, and like morons, they ate it up.

    No Glass-Steagall, no actual recovery.

    Tariffs created the American powerhouse and worked for over 200 years, and when my fellow Democrats caved, that’s when the outsourcing truly went into high gear.

    Impoverishing tens of millions of Americans, including mostly Democrats. Many people of color.

    The trade war is the culmination of 50 years of bad policy, especially in the past 25. If you don’t understand that, you don’t understand anything about the economy.

    Meanwhile Trump isn’t anything about hate and racism, that’s our side, the Democrats, who spew vile hate and intolerance about pretty much everything.

    Michael Moore once blasted those that took us into Iraq, now he bashes a guy who was against Iraq, and is in league with those that sent us there.

    Democrats aren’t Democrats anymore. Most aren’t. I am. That’s why I bash my fellow Democrats for being the fools they ARE.

    “Electoral College (which most Trump voters couldn’t explain if their lives depended on it)”.

    They can’t even explain 1st grade math. They have no chance trying to explain how the Electoral College works.
    ————————————

    Here’s some math for you. Since Obama was elected in 2008 the Democrats have lost 900+ state legislative seats, 10 governorships, 69 house seats, 13 senate seats and the Presidency. He certainly was historic to destroy his party’s power to its lowest level since the 1920s. Math sure is fun.

  91. This was published today. Today.

    “Even though the official unemployment rate has been hovering around record lows in recent years, wage growth has stayed stagnant, a new study from Pew Research reveals. In fact, the real average wage, which Pew defines as “the wage after accounting for inflation” has roughly the same purchasing power as it did 40 years ago. And while some workers have seen gains, most of the increases have gone to those who were already the highest-paid.”

    Trump is making the inequitable distribution of wealth more severe.  He is not helping the very people that love him! It’s insane. The level of stupidity is unprecedented.

    Speaking of head in the sand, did you ever look up Gerrymandering and where it originated? I could give you a few hours on it in Mass alone. I never said the GOP was clean, but there’s dirty and then there’s filthy. I like to think of myself as a recovering Democrat. I’ve been watching both sides carefully and it’s sort of like the meme about which race cops shoot more of. Yeah, if you want to play percentages it’s certainly black. If you want to count the actual number of real actual people, a lot more whites have shot.

    That’s not math. All that proves is that you can regurgitate statistics generated by others. It would be math if you had actually tabulated the results of those elections since 2008.

  95. Every single tweet that Drumph tweeted in regards to how the NFL should run its private business was illegal.

    Look it up yourselves.

    I’m tired of doing homework for The Flat Earth Society/ Drumph Supporters.

    Now, snap to attention!!

    ….Yeah. Im retired in my 50’s because Ive built businesses from the ground up
    with no handouts from the government. This gives me time to mock lazy people like you

  97. Dear little neocon snowflakes,

    I am so happy to see that a black athlete’s honest and straightforward thinking has gotten your panties in a kerfluffle. I hope you worry about this more until November, when you lose the House and Senate in a landslide.

    Stay triggered, little snowflakes!

  98. This is really messed up. Just a lot of insulting and even encouraged violence whenever someone uses logic to back up their facts that don’t agree with the agenda. So many victims. It wasn’t like this 10 years ago. So who are the lemmings that were brainwashed? I hope it can be reversed before someone gets hurt or seriously injured.

  99. “…Yeah. Im retired in my 50s because Ive built businesses from the ground up with no handouts from the government”.

    Ha! Name one business anyone would recognize that you’ve built.

    It is more likely that you’ve been collecting taxpayer funded SSI for the past 30 years for your fake disability.

  100. cardinealsfan20 – How is it that you expect people to respect your opinion, yet whenever someone states anything that contradicts you, even with facts, you resort to name calling and make up things that you think might’ve happened to prove them wrong?

  101. Let me help the those that don’t understand the Electoral College. It worked as designed. To be more accurate, Trump lost the popular vote by approximately 5-6 million votes in California and NY. But he won by 3-3.5 million votes in the other 48 states.
    Do you think Cal and NY should get to elect our leaders from now on?

  102. LOL @ everyone still having their panties in a bunch over Trump being President. Get used to it – he’s here to stay.

    it wasn’t by accident, the Military Services are paying sponsors and the NFL let their employee’s start protesting a paid sponsor on company time.

    the NFL could sever the relationship, but then that would be a bigger PR disaster then one currently going on.

    In 2 years, the NFL has lost viewership that had taken the previous 5 years to build. The money continues to roll in, but I expect the TV viewership to be down for the 3rd year in row.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    First, no one is protesting a “paid sponsor”.

    Second, why sever it over a few guys kneeling. Get over it.

    Third. Viewership is not down in the NFL. More people are streaming instead of watching over the airwaves since you have to get the most expensive cable package to get NFL network. Now can stream it for a whole lot cheaper.

  104. The electoral college is a legacy from Slavery. A concession to slave owning states fearful that they would suffer if all votes were valued equally.

    So, thanks to the institution of slavery and the states that fought to keep that disgusting practice in place, votes are not “1 person, 1 vote”….

    If you live in Idaho or N. Dakota, you get 2 Senators, just like California or New York.
    In terms of population; that means the 755K people in North Dakota have the same representation as 19.8 Million in New York.
    Votes for confirmation of key policy debate? Supreme Court Justices? Budgets? Going to war?
    Yup… North Dakota’s voters are 25 times more represented that a voter in New York.

    That’s not representative democracy. That’s institutional bias.
    Clinton got 3,000,000 more votes.

    This is in no way representative of the will of the people.
    Not even close.
