ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is criticizing the NFL for becoming 'soft.' Speaking at a campaign rally in Reno, Nevada, Trump said "football has become soft like our country has become soft." "It's a Sunday, who the hell wants to watch these crummy games? .. Now they tackle. 'Oh, head-on-head collision, 15 yards.' The whole game is all screwed up. You say, 'Wow, what a tackle.' Bing. Flag. Football has become soft," said Trump. He added, "It's become weak and you know what? It's going to affect the NFL. I don't even watch it as much anymore. It's going to affect the NFL. I don't watch it. The referees, they want to all throw flags so their wives see them at home. 'Oh, there's my husband.' It's true."
