Just a thought... Why would the GOP pick a fight with the NFL? The NFL fan base is second only to NASCAR in terms of wacko GOP support.
Because the GOP is not even remotely a rational beast and is motivated by attacking anything that is incomplete in its commitment to authoritarianism.
No doubt rhere is a link between the GOP and the NFL fanbase. However they are mainly fans of the institution and "their team". They are less connected to the players themselves particularly the ones "stirring up trouble" who are mainly black who they see as overpaid millionaires and ungrateful of their ability to play a "kids game" and get rich doing it.
