… w/ Nat’l Anthem Protests
TMZ Sports saw Stern in NYC … and with the debate over the NFL’s new rule on the National Anthem protest raging … we asked the former commish how he’d handle the controversy.
Stern didn’t exactly answer the question … but he did offer a ringing endorsement to the NFL’s head honcho.
“I think that commisioner Goodell is doing a great job in difficult circumstances.”
He went on to say … “I think every league needs rules to cover every situation. I don’t know what rule I would implement, but there should be a rule that treats everyone fairly, and uniformly.”
We also talked to Stern about LeBron and the NBA playoffs.
