Trump: The NFL ‘has become soft like our country’

Donald Trump thinks the NFL has gotten soft.

Trump told the crowd that while he was watching the AFC Wild Card game Saturday there were “so many flags.”

“The referees, they want to all throw flags so their wives see them at home,” Trump quipped. “‘Oh, there’s my husband.’ It’s true. ‘He just broke up — he just gave a 15-yard penalty on one of the most beautiful tackles made this year.’ Right?”

The billionaire claimed the lack of roughness in the game today has made the game “weak” and “boring.”

If the NFL doesn’t reflect those values, then what is that really teaching the next generation of sportsmen?
