The NFL establishes a “Social Justice Committee”


The NFL ratings fell considerably in 2017. This seems like the worst way to bring back them back.

The National Football League, just a little more than a week away from its championship game, announced that it has officially established an owner-player “social justice committee” designed to create a “dialogue” that will help the league better address issues of race relations.

The announcement, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a press conference, is “just the start” of building a greater awareness of — and dialogue around — political issues at every level of the league.

“We feel that we are going to make significant progress as we have more meetings, as we get more focused on our efforts, it’s going to actually come to life,” Goodell said. “And frankly, we will get better as the days go by.”
