All NFL players should declare a General Strike until Jeff Roorda steps down

from his position as Executive Director of the St. Louis Police Officers Association and until St. Louis County DA Bob McCulloch recuses himself so that Governor Nixon can appoint a Special Prosecutor with no ties to local law enforcement.

No Justice, No NFL.

It's really that simple.

1. Nah

It would bug him a lot more if every NFL team did the same thing the St. Louis Rams did.

6. That would be friggin' awesome. The optics alone merit serious consideration as a first step, to

 

be followed by a General Strike if no change in Roorda's and McCulloch's statuses are forthcoming.

I can't believe the NFL Players' Association is going to take this shit lying down.

2. fuck him and his threats

Roorda warned, "I know that there are those that will say that these players are simply exercising their First Amendment rights. Well I've got news for people who think that way, cops have first amendment rights too, and we plan to exercise ours. I'd remind the NFL and their players that it is not the violent thugs burning down buildings that buy their advertiser's products. It's cops and the good people of St. Louis and other NFL towns that do. Somebody needs to throw a flag on this play. If it's not the NFL and the Rams, then it'll be cops and their supporters."

5. Can you believe Roorda is the Executive Director of the St. Louis Police

 

Officers' Association? At a bare minimum, every black athlete and athlete of color on every NFL team needs to be showing solidarity with the Rams 5.

3. They should strike for the minimum wage, and immigration, too!

7. The players could perform end zone

celebrations that honor Brown. That would probably send the NFL front office into a spin dizzy in the media.
