President Donald Trump said Wednesday that the NFL is in a "very Darren O'Day Authentic Jersey bad box" over the issue of players protesting during the national anthem and suggested it will harm the league's business. "I think the NFL is in a box; I think they're in a really bad box," he said to reporters while leaving the White House for a trip to Indiana. "You look what's happening with their ratings, frankly, the only thing doing well in the NFL is the pregame because everybody wants to see what's going on"You cannot have people disrespecting our national anthem, our flag, our country, and that's what they're doing," Trump said. "And in my opinion, the NFL has to change. Or you know what's going to happen? Their business is going to hellThe Nielsen company said Tuesday that through three weeks, viewership for national telecasts of NFL games was down 11 percent this season compared to 2016. Nielsen said the games averaged 17.63 million viewers for the first three weeks of last season and have dipped to 15.65 million this year. The Nielsen figures don't include many of the Sunday afternoon games that are shown to a regional audience but not a national one. Trump has, since late last week, been lashing out at NFL players who kneel during the anthem. The president first said the NFL should fire players who kneel, then tweeted that the players were being disrespectful of the American http://www.officialoriolestore.com/Dylan_Bundy_Jersey flag, the anthem, military personnel and the country. He has also suggested that viewers are turned off by the protests and has suggested fans boycott the NFL. Players have said the protest, which began with then-49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand for the anthem, is their way of protesting racial inequality and police brutality. While the protests were scattered before Trump's comments, they spread to nearly every team in the NFL this past weekend. Players across the country linked arms or knelt during the anthem, and some were joined by their owners on the sidelines. Three teams -- the Seahawks, Titans and Steelers -- opted to remain off the field during the anthem, though the Steelers said Monday they remained in their locker room to avoid a political statement, not as a protest. Information from The Associated Press was used in this reportLOS ANGELES -- Josh Rosen quietly reconnected this summer with his most notable skeptic: Trent Dilfer, the theatrically opinionated former NFL quarterback who in recent years has reinvented himself as a youth quarterback guru. Their reconciliation came during the Elite 11 competition Curtis Granderson Womens Jersey for the nation's top high school quarterbacks, three years after their first encounter there when Dilfer fumed about Rosen's resistance to his training methods. Dilfer's frustration with the aggressively inquisitive Rosen would become the top storyline of the Elite 11 documentary broadcast months later"Josh, you were the most talked about person this week by far," Dilfer said in the penultimate scene of the show. "Everybody keeps coming back [to], 'Does he think he knows more than us?' " Rosen, then generally considered the nation's top quarterback in the Class of 2015, finished last among the 11 quarterbacks chosen in the finaleAt the invitation of the Elite 11 organizers, Rosen returned in June as one of the college counselors for the high-profile camp. Dilfer was impressed Rosen accepted the offer, a hint at a thaw in their relationship. By the time the camp was over, Dilfer had become as much a fan of Rosen the man as he was the quarterback. "I have nothing but good things to say about him," Dilfer said. "I've grown to appreciate how he's aware of his impact, his words, his influence, and he's aware of his talent and how good he can be." Rosen's growth between those Elite 11s -- from local phenom to star quarterback at UCLA -- was the theme of his address to the teen prodigies in attendance, a tale that included the highs and the lows of the past three years. He was, to Dilfer and the camp organizers, a model alumnus. Yet as Rosen made clear that summer day and in a handful of public comments since, he aspires to be an atypical Golden Boy, less a bland company man and more an unapologetic advocate. He created headlines most recently, in an interview last month with Bleacher Report, saying, "football and school don't go together" and "at some point, universities have to do more to prepare players for university life and help them succeed beyond football." In a time of increasing social unrest and political dissension, Rosen has purposefully positioned himself to be a different sort of leading man. "It's kind of the position that you are in as an athlete," Rosen said, "and you would hope everyone in the world would stick up for each other." For all of the promise he shows on the football field (he's projected as one of the top prospects in whichever NFL draft that he enters, 2018 or 2019), many who are close to him -- and some who aren't -- predict his biggest impact probably will come away from it. "He wants to http://www.officialmetsproshop.com/Darryl_Strawberry_Jerseybe great," Dilfer said, "and wants to leverage that influence to do bigger things
