NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell seems to believe his place these days is out in the street on his knees, surrounded by a howling Black Lives Matter mob, while confessing his privilege and begging forgiveness for being white.
Which is fine. Humiliation is a turn-on for some people. The problem is that Goodell insists the NFL join him on the pavement. According to a report from Michael McCarthy at Front Office Sports, the NFL is bringing back a whole lot of the anti-racism virtue signaling that made pro-football unwatchable last season.
“To reinforce its 10-year, $250 million commitment to combat systemic racism, the league will promote social justice via on-field signage, decals on player helmets, and in-stadium PSAs,” McCarthy writes.
