Herschel Walker, the ex-NFL luminary, is firing on all cylinders for America’s military heroes and first responders — hot on the heels of his recent criticism of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for not quelling the national anthem protests.

“I absolutely think the protests are so upsetting, and I blame the commissioner,” he said.

“I know people are going to be angry when I say it, but he should have stopped the protests at the very beginning.”

The Heisman Trophy winner doesn’t beat around the bush. “Guys, let me tell you this,” he said. “Our flag is very special, and black lives matter, but what we should do is go to Washington after the season and protest there instead. We have young men and women fighting for the flag. And we have to respect the White House.” Read more at NY POST.




  1. Herschel Walker turned out to be a total bust. Emmitt Smith was 1000 times better and rightfully ended up in the Hall of Fame. That infamous trade went down, at least for the Vikings, as the dumbest trade in NFL history!

      • What are you talking about?! Emmitt had more carries, yards, & touchdowns career stats. Yes, Sanders played for a stinky loser, Lions team and retired in his prime, but those are the breaks my friend. Maybe Sanders was the better of the two, but don’t macht aveck mit the hant, Emmitt. They’re both in the hall of fame.
