RUSH EXCERPT:

FRATES: "The problem here is that I don’t think that the players are bringing up a topic that anyone understands anymore. Originally, yes, this was about police brutality. I think that’s an important conversation to have. But they have not kept that up. It has diffused into simply a political topic of left versus right. I do think trump has honestly won the debate on this. However, I’m not a fan of his tweets and I never have been. But the real loser here is the NFL. It is the commissioner and the teams who have refused to take a stand on what they think and they let the players run roughshod over them and they felt the effects as far as viewers and advertisement and clout."
