Thoughts are he did not like being prevented from joining that elite fraternity of NFL owners. No matter what the league did here, Trump would find fault in it.
No , he was "blackballed" along time before that .

The 1985 USFL championship game was held at Giants Stadium, home of the New Jersey Generals, who were owned by future presidential candidate Donald Trump. And it was Trump's strategy for the league that is widely considered to have led to its demise.Jul 14, 2015

Also I like how he admits nfl ratings are down but. Streaming has affected tv watching for years...but the nfl before that protest had bucked it.

The protests have certainly affected viewership and the slip in ratings and merchandise are evident to nfl and tv executives.
Not sure if that is true about college football here was last seasons viewership. Overall it was down but the jump at Fox makes me question whether it was a significant downward trend.

Re: NFL Anthem Policy

Yeah as really need to be in the trying to win back viewers and win back respect most of all.
Think the NFL needed to suspend the player or players that kneel down and deck money from their check books/pay.
To teach them a huge lessons. Yes is is chump change. But put politics out of the game. Want to watch the game. Not see a political rally.

"To teach them a huge lessons"? Wait one cotton pickin minute!
Them boys got too much money. Too bad we can't teach them a huge lessons like my grand pappy used to back in the good ole days.

If you don't want politics in the game, reach out to FOX and demand that they don't acknowledge the protest during the broadcast and don't attend the first 3 minutes of the game.

Mostly white billionaires "punishing" black millionaires isn't the publicity/politics the NFL needs.
NFL owners need to support their current and former players by working with the players on an anthem resolution and also paying out CTE settlements.

The anthem is pretty much run its course but if the owners draw a hard line in the sand, players are going to cross it.
