As it turns out, the video published by the NFL on Friday featuring Commissioner Roger Goodell is only the second-best video in which the league office had a hand this week.

Per a league source, an NFL social-media employee helped put together Thursday’s powerful video featuring multiple players who demanded change.

Saints receiver Michael Thomas asked the NFL employee for assistance, and the NFL employee helped. The end result was one of the most compelling 70 seconds of non-game action ever created in the league’s 100-year history, and the video is contributing to the sense of change that quickly has gone from hanging in the air to settling on the skin of every man, woman, and child in this nation.

The best news is that the NFL is quickly moving to the forefront of the effort. But more work will need to be done both to stay there and to push the envelope even farther.

  1. So tell me why are people honoring a man who sells meth and fentanyl did 5 years in prison for selling drugs and assault and put a gun to pregnant woman stomach and was arrested again for selling drugs and trying use counterfeit money, I get it what the cop did was wrong but if he was law abiding citizen he would be alive today.

  2. About time. A few years too late, and someone should give Kap a job. But it’s a step in the right direction. If y’all disagree, then I’m happy to see your “I’m not watching the NFL next year” comment. No one cares how you spend your Sunday. At least this year we might see the NFL allow its players to help promote something that’s been a long time coming.

    Because no matter what your crime is, it shouldn’t equal an execution by a law enforcement officer—- unless of course you are trying to execute them first— which clearly wasn’t the case here.

  4. Madmoose, the movement is much bigger than 1 person. Say his name. George Floyd’s murder was the spark that was needed to start the uprising. The movement has been around for decades

  5. Madmoose, Why try to diminish the crime by pointing out the victim’s flaws? If GF had a clean record, would it change anything?

    Yes.

  7. If you are asking the question “would it change anything if he hadn’t committed a crime” then you are entirely missing the whole point. That’s a big factor in deciding your own fate and others fate by committing a crime. So are you telling your own children that’s it ok to emulate Floyd in doing or selling drugs or it’s ok to spend 5 years in prison that Floyd is a good role model you have serious problems. How about Michael Brown he is on video robbing the gas station, if had not robbed it he would probably be alive today. So Yes it does make a difference in the choices you make in life in how it affects you and other people’s lives. It was wrong what the cops did why in the hell didn’t anything click in this guys head that ok that’s enough and get him in the car it’s just unbelievable that it happened.
