When the NFL finally takes a stand against Trump

The NFL is on a mission to make the game of football a more inclusive place, and it is now asking the public for its support in a big way. 

A new video by the NFL’s media relations team, entitled “It’s Time for the NFL to Say No to Trump,” shows an animated logo that reads “NO TO TRUMP.”

The video was posted to YouTube on Wednesday and is intended to show how the NFL and its teams have come to stand with the NFLPA and other groups protesting President Donald Trump. 

It also shows how the league has reached out to celebrities to speak out against Trump, including singer Taylor Swift, actor Matt Damon, actress Alyssa Milano, actress Jennifer Lawrence, actress Kristen Bell, and comedian Aziz Ansari. 

“As a team, we are united in our support for the players and the players’ families and our respect for the people of the United States of America,” NFL Media’s vice president of communications, Matt Hensley, said in a statement.

“We will continue to stand up for those who love our game and those who want to create a better world.

We are proud to stand in solidarity with our players and their families.

It is our job to stand united with them and show our support, even if it means standing with our conscience.”

It’s been a rough few weeks for NFL players protesting Trump and the White House.

On Monday, three players—former Arizona Cardinals safety Eric Reid, cornerback Jalen Ramsey, and cornerback Josh Norman—were arrested and charged with assaulting Trump in a private jet.

On Tuesday, the New York Times reported that former Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, who was arrested on a DUI charge in February, had received a six-month suspension for his role in the protests against Trump.
