Trump Is Tearing the NFL Apart

Fights. Friendships ended. Racial divides. Requirements not to talk about a combustible candidate on team property. B/R Mag’s examination of the football locker room electorate reveals that America’s most popular sport is just as politically divided as the nation itself

6. In 2008 the Browns were literally divided in the locker roon

Brady Quinn was mouthing off in support of Romney. If memory serves someone either punched him or there was some physical contact with another teammate. Everyone was told to stop talking about it and I think some lockers were reassured.

9. The players supporting Trump are stupid or/and racist

The article mentions the coach of the Bills and a former Dolphin's player Richie Incognito, now with the Bills. Richie Incognito has a terrible racial problem past with the Dolphins.

10. I live outside of Boston and when I heard...

... that Tom Brady supported Trump it threw me into a severe state of cognitive dissonance.

13. Mr. Caterpillar Hair

stayed true to one thing he would do during his campaign: he's shaking things up, except not in a healthy way. After hearing some of these players support HC's opponent, I can't help but contemplate how their personalities are off-camera. They might seem like down-to-earth men and get along with their Black teammates on TV, but that all might be a facade. Probably most of the coaches and especially owners are Trumpanzees, too.
