Joint NFL-NFLPA Statement

"The NFL community is united more than ever to support one another in these challenging times. We share anger and frustration, most recently as a result of the shooting of Jacob Blake.

While our passions continue to run high, we are proud that our players and clubs, League and Union, are taking time to have the difficult conversations about these issues that affect the Black community and other communities of color in America.  We are especially encouraged that these conversations are about how we can come together to make the necessary and long overdue changes in our country.

We will continue to not only use our collective platform to call out racism and injustice whenever and wherever it occurs in our country, but also fight together to eradicate it."

STATEMENT FROM NFL COMMISSIONER ROGER GOODELL

​​​"We strongly condemn the unprofessional, disturbing and abhorrent behavior and workplace environment alleged in the report which is entirely inconsistent with our standards and has no place in the NFL.

An independent investigation into these issues is in process, led by highly experienced counsel recommended by our office.  We will continue to monitor the progress of this investigation and ensure that the club and its employees satisfy their obligation to give full cooperation to the investigators.  If at any time the club or anyone associated with the club fails to do so, the investigating counsel has been asked to promptly advise our office and we will take appropriate action. When the investigation concludes, we will review the findings and take any appropriate action at that time."

"El futbol americano es un elemento básico de los deportes del sur y será bienvenido a la alineación de Los Juegos Mundiales 2022", agregó el alcalde Randall Woodfin. "Los deportes sin contacto, como el futbol bandera, son una excelente manera de abrir la competencia a todos los niveles de habilidad.

Birmingham no puede esperar a que el mundo se una a nosotros en 2022".

El presidente del Consejo de la ciudad de Birmingham, William Parker, agregó: "El futbol bandera para adultos es un deporte muy competitivo y en crecimiento a nivel mundial. No hay mejor lugar para exhibir la experiencia del Tochito de los Juegos Mundiales 2022 que en la cancha del Legion Field, 'La capital del futbol americano del sur'. Esta asociación con la NFL es sólo el comienzo de una relación a largo plazo que la ciudad planea desarrollar con la Liga".

"El futbol americano fue un deporte por invitación en Los Juegos Mundiales de 2005 y 2017", dijo Joachim Gossow, CEO de IWGA. "Al ser un gran deporte profundamente arraigado en Birmingham, Alabama, el Comité Organizador de Birmingham se mostró entusiasmado de recibir el futbol americano bandera, una disciplina dinámica sin contacto, en Los Juegos Mundiales 2022. Cuando la IFAF y la NFL respaldaron conjuntamente la solicitud para participar, con el fin de promover aún más y mostrar el Tochito bandera en los Estados Unidos y en todo el mundo, el Consejo de la IWGA dio seguimiento a la solicitud de BOC de agregar el futbol bandera al programa deportivo en 2022".
