(TSX / STATS) -- President Donald Trump criticized the NFL for the third time this week in his latest tweet targeting commissioner Roger Goodell, saying the "players are the boss."

Only one player reportedly knelt during the three national anthems for the Thanksgiving Day games, with New York Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon continuing his protest of racial inequality and police brutality during the playing of the "The Star-Spangled Banner."

"Can you believe that the disrespect for our Country, our Flag, our Anthem continues without penalty to the players. The Commissioner has lost control of the hemorrhaging league. Players are the boss!" Trump tweeted early Friday morning before announcing he planned to golf with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson later in the day at Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Fla.
