Daughter of NFL Executive Bill Tobin Calls the Program

CALLER: I'm a 27-year veteran of the Army, just retired in January. So we're big military supporters as well. But I had to call — and I can't even believe I'm talking to you — when you mentioned my dad's name, Bill Tobin.

America Weighs In on NFL Protests

RUSH: This is a workplace issue. And the First Amendment's guarantee of free speech doesn't apply here. The First Amendment only says that the government, Congress shall make no law abridging your right to freedom of speech, state actions. But employers can tell employees what they can say and can't say in certain situations, how to behave, what's a fireable offense. This is absolutely true.

There’s No Way Trump Loses NFL Battle

RUSH: The Democrats are being seen as the party that encourages protest against the anthem and the country itself. I'm telling you, sports media guys and gals, there's no way Donald Trump loses this, the way you've got it going.

Trump Calls Out McCain — Again

RUSH: He simply instinctively knows what a majority of Americans say or think in a specific instance about a specific issue and he says it. And I don't think he has to study it. He doesn't focus group it. He doesn't poll it. He doesn't say to some campaign consultant, "Go out and poll the American people and find out where we are on McCain." He just goes out because he instinctively gets it. You can see it at his rallies.

How the Protest Movement Destroyed Mizzou

RUSH: Mizzou is an early indicator of what happens when an organization — this case, the University of Missouri — gives itself over to the protest movement and allows it to rule the roost and define what happens. The University of Missouri is a ghost town now. It really is. The football team is decimated.

Interesting Takes on Trump and the NFL

RUSH: The left has always believed that malcontents and protesters and people practicing dissent is quintessential America, but most Americans don't think that's what quintessential America is. You see, it just doesn't compute that something you claim to love, you bitch about all the time.

NFL Owners Side with Players Over Customers

RUSH: Customers have shown that they'll put up with a lot. They'll put up with work stoppages. They'll put up with publicly financed stadiums. They'll put up with personal seat licenses of $30,000 for the privilege then of buying a season ticket. They will put up with regular season prices for exhibitions in the preseason that don't even feature players that will be on the final roster. So the fans have shown they'll accept a lot. So if you're an owner in the National Football League and you have this balancing act, who do you side with?

Rush 24/7 Stack of Stuff

RUSH: No longer is this just gonna be a long list of stories that I might mention on the program. Now, you will get specifically the stories that I talk about on the program and a select list of a few others that I intended to get to but ran out of time. It's going to be more of a real-time base feature rather than just a generic list of places that I go to prep the show.
