‘The View’ hosts discuss what it was like to be an NFL player in the era of social media
Posted October 10, 2018 07:21:00In the aftermath of the death of Colin Kaepernick, who became the first black quarterback in the NFL to publicly protest during the anthem, many have asked, what is it like to play football for the NFL?
The answer may surprise you.
In the era that began in the 1970s, when black quarterbacks like Jim Brown and Mike Glennon were starting to get national recognition, it was not uncommon for players of color to be ostracized by their teams.
As the sport has evolved, so has the way that people of color view it.
The NFL is now in the midst of a cultural shift that is beginning to influence how we view the game.
It is no longer just about who can throw the ball best, but who is the most deserving of the job.
We are in a golden age of football.
With the number of NFL games now broadcast in over a billion homes worldwide, and millions of fans worldwide, it is no surprise that fans are eager to find out who is going to be the next star to rise to the occasion.
The first time I saw a fan at a game, it felt like I was in a video game.
The most common criticism leveled against the league is that of a lack of diversity in the players and coaching staffs.
A number of players, especially former players, have come out and said that there are few black coaches, that they are paid well, and that the league has an open door policy for players.
I don’t see any of that.
The diversity of the NFL has been there for a long time.
There are people of every race, color, gender, and sexual orientation.
Every week, the team and players are held accountable for how they conduct themselves.
As a black quarterback, I would never be judged by how much money I make.
The only reason the perception is changing is that there is an opportunity to change the conversation.
I am proud to be a member of the Dallas Cowboys.
I know how hard it is to go through all of that, and it is something I am passionate about.
I feel that I have an opportunity right now to start the conversation about the things that I think need to change.
So what are the key elements of diversity that you believe must change in order to make the NFL a better place for all players?
Well, there is so much that we can do in order for everyone to be treated fairly.
The way that we handle player discipline is a big issue.
Players have been given a free pass for the last 20 years.
That has changed because of the internet.
People who have no idea how to use social media can use it to do a lot of damage to the game and the players.
I think it is important for coaches and players to understand that their interactions are a reflection of who they are and what they do.
We have a strong safety culture.
I have a lot more respect for players and the coaches because they are so dedicated to the business of the game, which is to win.
When you have players that care so much about the game that they dedicate their lives to it, it really is amazing to watch.
And I think that the culture should be a focus of all of us, regardless of who you are.
We need to have more players and coaches that are honest with the game they are a part of.
I would like to see more athletes that are not afraid to stand up and talk about what they think and believe.
We also have a very progressive view of gender and racial equality.
I can understand why some of the fans have a problem with the fact that a lot women and people of colour play.
The fact that women and African-Americans have played this game so long is amazing.
I understand that we are not doing anything that has not been done.
But we have to have this dialogue.
You know, it can be very frustrating when you have a group of people who are passionate about something and you are like, ‘Oh, you guys don’t care about our rights as human beings.
How about we take care of our own?’
Well, I can’t imagine how much we would care about the rights of someone who isn’t a fan of our team.
