“In the discussion that we had, Malcolm conveyed to us—based on discussions that he had with the NFL—that the money would come from funds that are already allocated to breast cancer awareness and Salute to Service,” Reid said in an interview with Slate. “So it would really be no skin off the owners’ backs: They would just move the money from those programs to this one.”

They went nuts when they gave in to blackmail. The public speaks volumes every week with low attendance and sliding tv ratings. The owners and commish are complete fools to let an idiot like Kapernick and his social justice panderers destroy what once was the best sport in America.

Stealing funds from more legitimate causes like breast cancer and the military demonstrates just how low they have sunk.

At this point, they've painted themselves into a very untenable corner.  

It's monetary appeasement for a culture of victimization that will never be appeased.   Who's grievance takes precedence when merely the state of being aggrieved warrants compensation?  It's become a profitable state.

Now they're "cutting off their nose to spite their face" and essentially telling women and the military (two constituencies they overly cater too) that their taking a back seat for 'social justice'
