What a kick in the F'in nuts. Here is a guy who has true skin in the game. He isnt a keyboard warrior wetting himself to show how anti racist he is. Hes a guy that donated millions of dollars to his impoverished community , many of which are black , and hes getting dragged through the mud royally because he felt the kneeling was disrespectful to the flag even though he agreed with the reason. 

 

Tons of NFL players on twitter blasting him even though most of them probably haven't done a fraction of the charitable work this guy has done. A shame to watch a good man get swallowed up in an internet shark tank

I listened to his response and I get his sentiment but unfortunately the headline is Brees doesn't agree with kneeling and it makes a great headline to create controversy and division.  I know he didn't volunteer it, it was an answer to a question, but this may have been a good time to keep his opinion to himself and just give a basic or non answer, or simply a message of support, maybe not for kneeling but just for the other black players.  Because somebody can come right back and say 'well I think it is even more disrespectful to be killed by police" etc etc and it will be a tough answer.  And Brees is white as can be so he really doesn't understand what it means to be discriminated against in the first place. That's a bad trap question and Brees is old enough he can speak his mind but he is still playing and this will create unwanted attention.

I think it's worse now that he has apologized. 

 

I'm going to say the same thing I said about Kaep. It's a free country, you have the right to say and express yourself. You also have the right to face the consequences, that is what Brees is dealing with. It's sad we moved past the "agree to disagree."

It's the divide and conquer method.   The attitude of, "If you don't believe in what I believe you are wrong!"

One can have an opinion but the other can't. The flag means something to Brees, it means something different to others. To each his own, no problem.

My Wife and I argued about this last night. I told her to read everything he said before judging him. He has every right to feel the way he does about kneeling, it was just the worst time ever to say it. And it’s sad how all these people are now coming out and saying fu** Drew Brees. Showing the same intolerance that they are fighting against.

I agree 100% I think a part of the reaction to Brees is that Kaep got so much "fu**** Kaep."

Who would of though Drew Brees would be a heat getter? Seems like a pile on to me. 

It is a pile on, but Brees put it on himself. This was a good time to be quiet.

Exactly.  Also, it's a good time not to have a social media account at all.

It's a pile on because he's white. The whole Country is a big White pile on right now. He should apologize for being born white, that might take some heat off of him.

Agree, because kneeling will make the World a better place. If the whole World kneeled today, all of our problems will be gone tomorrow.

Do you need an apology? Because if that's what you need from me I'll do it. Just for you though.

He was asked a specific question, about the chance of players kneeling again, and he answered giving HIS opinion. Apparently people would prefer he tell them what they want to hear rather than express his own views. Shame on Michael Thomas, LeBron and others for trashing him, kudos to Joe Horn and Marcus Davenport for sticking up for him. One of Thomas' tweets had a response from Mike Freeman reacting as if Brees watched Floyd killed by the cop and said "you need to respect the flag, no kneeling."  What an ass.

True but this was not social media, it was an interview, in the pre social media day it still would have spread but a bit slower. In the old days people sat at the bar and said things to the guy next to them, who'd nod in agreement or just mumble and that was the end of it. Nobody else knew their views. 

 

The real buffoons of social media are the people committing serious crimes, and posting video live while doing it. Like the instigator in some of the riots (Matthew Rupert from Illinois) even when somebody expressed concern about it he was like "no worries, we ain't doing nuthin wrong".

Lebron should shut the F up about anything other than basketball.  He makes millions just off his shoe deals alone, while the kids making them make pennies a day for starters.  He should just work on getting into the top ten or five of NBA players of all time and keep donating to Cleveland.
