    The NFL can have drag queens dance at half-time if they want to.

    It's a trade association.

    A rather well run one.

    Actually everything that goes on now with the overhyped "salute to Service" is more or less the penance the NFL is paying for the millions they took for years from the Department of Defense. Now it's just a show of fake patriotism the league claims makes them no money.

    I never liked all that patriotic shit at NFL games.

    It always reeked of jingoism.

    To be fair, if you've ever played a sport competitively, there's something that gets you pumped up about the national anthem. Like you're going to war. Didn't Ray Lewis always cry doing it before he tried to rip heads off on the field?

    Jamal Adams (on Fromm and Brees): " You and Drew aren't really sorry. Save the bullshit apologies. The truth just came out and you two aren't the only ones."

    Drew Brees is the all time leading passer in yards and touchdowns. He is second in passing attempts and has the top three single season records in terms of completion percentage (5 out of the top 10). He's also number two in career winning drives and is tied for second of game winning drives in a season.

    That dude would've been nothing without Hurricane Katrina.

    People can disagree with Brees as much as they want. Although he only answered the question he was asked, he did so publicly. I think Fromm was a shitty flawed prospect from the start that would be lucky to be AJ McCarron. But the dudes getting ripped for a private conversation that some cunt decided to make public for what reason? No doubt, what he said is whack but what the fuck are we doing here.

    I wonder how much the guy who leaked it got paid by TMZ or where ever he leaked it to.

    It must be hard to be a racist NFL player.

    All the tough guys are black... :confused:

    falling on deaf ears I'm sure, but I very much respect Brees' willingness to talk to teammates and friends and take another look at his own assumptions. There is a lot of ingrained suffering out there that is not apparent if you are white. It's not a zero sum game. We all benefit if we fix this.

    Obviously the paradox of intolerance whizzed past your head.

    P.S. 1A does guarantee the freedom of speech. It does not, however, guarantee the freedom from consequence. Two different things.
