NFL Legend Brett Favre Claims He’s Fed Up With Political Posturing in Sports

Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre said he was fed up with the amount of political posturing that has now seemed to have taken over the world of sports.

Favre went on to say that the current political climate in the sports world was one of the many reasons he was glad to no longer be playing in the NFL.

As The Daily Wire reports:

In an interview last week on Sinclair Broadcasting’s “America This Week,” Favre sat down with host Eric Bolling, who asked about players who kneel during the national anthem at National Football League games.

“I’m glad I’m not playing for a lot of reasons. That’s one. I don’t want to be asked questions after a game that had nothing to do with play,” Favre said.

Favre added: “I’m not saying who’s right or wrong. … There’s a lot of things that need to be fixed in this country and this world. … We can all work together.”…

“If you like oranges and I don’t, is that wrong? Does that mean I’m suppose to dislike you?” he said. “You’re either with us or we hate you.”

Well a few months back he was calling Colin Kaepernick akin to Jackie Robinson in his efforts, so this would not necessarily fit the same line of thinking. Sorry Brett, you have an opinion it just seems tortured and confused.
As for all the choir boys leading the social justice parade in the NFL, John 8:7 comes to mind, he that is without sin, cast the first stone.

You forget that most of them have never even seen a Bible, let alone open it up. If they cared anything about God guiding them they’d not be doing what they are.

Favre’s play is admired by tens of millions of fans. Kaepernick was shamed by inferior play and earned an exit from football. He turned to a new and despicable career. Favre’s net worth is five times Kaepernick’s, but losers are athletes who follow in the NBA, NFL and MLB.
They’ll probably face lower advertising and gate revenue and consequent reduced salaries. In time, as the fan base continues to drop, these industries will join other marginal entertainment groups like fencing, curling, etc. At the end, colleges also will see a revenue decline.
Fans everywhere agree with Favre but Kaepernick’s pals seem determined to destroy these industries to feed their egos. Don’t pity the poor followers because they’ve been warned.

Why am I being censored again? Perhaps it’s because I’m the only one posting right now.

People don’t watch sports for political commentary or posturing. Sports is supposed to be an escape from the day to day grind of business. It is supposed to be a relaxation. These overpaid, self-important social justice warriors are ruining the sports for everyone except the social justice Kool-Aid drinkers. What will the do when the day comes that no one shows up at the stadiums and no one turns on the game on T.V.??? Start practicing “Do you want fries with that order?” Outside of chasing a ball all over a field that is probably the only skill you have.

If these « social warriors » were more than talk, why don’t they donate the hundreds of millions of dollars that they collectively get from this unjust world to the inner cities? They’re hypocrites of the worst kind. All talk- but G-d help you if they miss their paychecks

Thank you, and Amen!! The hypocrisies of these athletes as well as their liberal cronies go unmatched. It’s always the one’s that make the most that pay their bills the least, and the biggest whiners and complainers that always do the least for their fellow man. Thank goodness we do have a few good examples like George Forman and Shaq.

You speak the truth, money is all they think about, no the poor communities, black & white. There are poor in ever race & to say only the Black Matters is a racist statement & doesn’t belong in anything.

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAA! You clowns dug the hole with no way to escape it. So just sit in the bottom with your overpaid, over hyped BS and play with yourselves because real people are sick of it and refuse to buy into it. Get a real job like the rest of us unknowns that have to work everyday for a lot less money.
