“It is certainly possible. It was a pretty major story in our nation this fall. We would show it. When you are covering a live event, you are covering what is happening. If there are players that decided to kneel, they’ll be shown live,” said Gaudelli.
He also addressed the lack of NFL presence this year. Gaudelli blamed the weather as opposed to the anthem protests and that the lack of presence was blown out of proportion. “New York had a match in week 17 where it was 4 degrees out. Why would you go and sit in that if the Giants are two and 13?” said Gaudelli.
President Trump made headlines during his rally against NFL kneelers this past year. “Would not you like to see one of those NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b*tch off the field at the moment. Out. He has fired!'” .
“You know, some owner will do that. He is going to say, ‘That man that disrespects our flag, he is fired.’ And that proprietor, they do not understand it [but] they will be the most popular person in this nation,” said Trump.
