pulling up the history of the G.I. bill and how it wasn't offered to black veterans until later on (way too later on, at that).

that pretty much got any of Drew's "my family are veterans..." rhetoric the eff outta here.

Wonder if he'll suffer any serious consequences from this. Given how the league blackballed Kaepernick and still grew in popularity, should be interesting overall how things go, assuming the league even has a season with COVID-19 lurking in the background.

I would like to apologize to my friends, teammates, the City of New Orleans, the black community, NFL community and anyone I hurt with my comments yesterday. In speaking with some of you, it breaks my heart to know the pain I have caused.
In an attempt to talk about respect, unity, and solidarity centered around the American flag and the national anthem, I made comments that were insensitive and completely missed the mark on the issues we are facing right now as a country. They lacked awareness and any type of compassion or empathy. Instead, those words have become divisive and hurtful and have misled people into believing that somehow I am an enemy. This could not be further from the truth, and is not an accurate reflection of my heart or my character.
This is where I stand:

I stand with the black community in the fight against systemic racial injustice and police brutality and support the creation of real policy change that will make a difference.
I condemn the years of oppression that have taken place throughout our black communities and still exists today.
I acknowledge that we as Americans, including myself, have not done enough to fight for that equality or to truly understand the struggles and plight of the black community.
I recognize that I am part of the solution and can be a leader for the black community in this movement.
I will never know what it’s like to be a black man or raise black children in America but I will work every day to put myself in those shoes and fight for what is right.
I have ALWAYS been an ally, never an enemy.
I am sick about the way my comments were perceived yesterday, but I take full responsibility and accountability. I recognize that I should do less talking and more listening...and when the black community is talking about their pain, we all need to listen.
For that, I am very sorry and I ask your forgiveness.

He can keep his PR apology and really do some shit if he means it. Your photo op with Trump says enough for me. We need to stop letting these people get away with this shit. Make them earn it. If he really means what he says in this apology make him show it. Cause I guarantee you in his household and with his friends he keeps it VERY "right". That "right" isn't going to be tolerated. Our rights matter. Fuck this apology man. Show it.

Dream with your eyes open.....

how have these conversations not come up in the locker room or team meetings?

Does he not socialize with any of his black teammates after practice? How could a dude that has made a living throwing to black dudes for the last 20 years be this tone deaf?

do you talk real shit with your coworkers?
personally i do not. its business to me and its better that way

plus you know football is all about that "all that matters in the locker room is whats in the locker room. leave the outside, outside" mentality so they can skate on addressing real life issues.

In response to Reply # 35


  

          

who is supposedly known for being a “great leader”? I’m sure there are probably some offensive linemen that feel like that because on a lot of teams those dudes are in their own world.

In sports you go on road trips together and spend so much time traveling together on buses and planes way more than most regular jobs. I’m sure the subject of Kaepernick and other players protesting had to have come up multiple times.

In response to Reply # 35


          

these dudes aren't quite like you and me not kicking in with the I.T. guy outside of work. I've heard mad stories from former players talking about how they really do get down with each other and talk and build beyond the football. Ryan Clark said Ben used to come to his sons games, like clockwork and they'd be as excited to see him as they were their own pops. He also said guys would take turns hosting the whole team at their crib for dinners...and watch movies and b.s. If nothing else, Drew has to have built with the black men on the offensive line. He just bullshitted.

55. "Nah.. it’s actually different for QB’s"
In response to Reply # 38


          

They usually get down with the OL for obvious reasons but it’s rare for QB’s and skill position black players to kick it off the field.

I remember Larry Fitz and Kurt Warner doing a late night interview. Larry said “yeah, Kurtz kid came in the locker room and I approached him and he was all “who so the big scary black man”

Kurt was like “nooo, come on”

I think that was Larry’s way of saying we don’t really get down off the field like that.

then you have Big Ben and AB and Bell and others who all implied Ben ain’t shit. He doesn’t allow rap music in the locker room.

White QB’s are funny style. White Linebackers too.. the Watt brothers seem to be sensitive to racial injustice but a lot of white payers are conservative af.

shut up already, damn

the game but Marshall, Torry and all the other offensive guys swear by him and I’ve never once heard anyone that was on those Rams teams say anything negative about him.

Warner has always supported players kneeling and actually work work Kaepernick when he was trying to get back into the NFL.

In response to Reply # 35

Office workers have this worker bee, you do you and I'll do me kind of mentality that all builds to this big success at the end of the quarter. Professional athletes, restaurant people, theater people, they all look at themselves as a team fighting off all the bullshit coming their way each and every night, building each other up and knocking each other down as necessary.


Like for me, you can't spend a night serving $200 wine you can't afford to men in suits jokingly telling you it's OK to take the mask and gloves off around them because THEY aren't worried about COVID, then go out for a cigarette and beer with your coworkers and NOT wind up talking about real shit from time to time because you're in this awkward position where you know more about every aspect of your job than 90% of the people that consume your work and yet you could not afford to spend time in your workplace the same way those people can. Hell, you might even eat the duck + frites dish they ate and you get the luxury of paying half off, but its balanced by noshing on that shit like it's a tray of lemon pepper wings while sitting two feet off the ground on a milk crate drinking water from a plastic quart deli container.


I think a poor culture fit in a locker room can be managed, especially the larger the roster, but ultimately you're going to war with that person. Talent can only keep you around for so long, at some point if you disagree (or more importantly, refuse to listen or admit you are a single perspective among many) on enough significant issues with your coworkers, the ostracization (is...this a word?) can and will come for you.

I am a big fan of Drew Brees. I think he’s truly one of the greatest quarterbacks, but he should not have taken back his original stance on honoring our magnificent American Flag. OLD GLORY is to be revered, cherished, and flown high...

...We should be standing up straight and tall, ideally with a salute, or a hand on heart. There are other things you can protest, but not our Great American Flag - NO KNEELING!

To @realdonaldtrump
Through my ongoing conversations with friends, teammates, and leaders in the black community, I realize this is not an issue about the American flag. It has never been. We can no longer use the flag to turn people away or distract them from the real issues that face our black communities.
We did this back in 2017, and regretfully I brought it back with my comments this week. We must stop talking about the flag and shift our attention to the real issues of systemic racial injustice, economic oppression, police brutality, and judicial & prison reform.
We are at a critical juncture in our nation’s history! If not now, then when?

We as a white community need to listen and learn from the pain and suffering of our black communities. We must acknowledge the problems, identify the solutions, and then put this into action. The black community cannot do it alone. This will require all of us.

70. "speaking solely for myself and what *i* would condemn"
In response to Reply # 68


  

          

its hard for me to view someone as immutably irredeemable for words that arent hate speech or incitements to violence.

not Black so it's not my place to absolve him of his bullshit. but IF his eyes really were opened (and i have no idea if thats true or not) that seems like a long term W and a small example of the bigger goal.

granted hes famous with lots to lose, so there is obviously material gain on the line. but when it comes to any sort of ideology, converts usually make for the most devout. so i guess we'll see.

I've hated his guts ever since he spoke out against Kaepernick the first time. He sounds like he's being sincere here so i'd be willing to give him the benefit of the doubt...

... BUT

Kaep still blackballed from the league, and he contributed to the environment that enabled that. he needs to make amends for that, or else he can GTFOOH with that I was blind but now i see, I am part of the solution shit.

I'm asking cause I don't know.

I'm talking about CrossFit gyms with well established customer bases.

**actually, I guess the gyms need to be affiliated in order for its members to participate in the national competitions?

they help w/ visibility, promo and putting on local/regional/national events. if you're a newbie looking to get into it, you either search "local crossfit" or just go to crossfit.com and only affiliated gyms can use the name CrossFit. so if you don't want to pay the licensing you're pretty assed out as far as being in the community

from browsing r/crossfit the big issue seems to be how to keep the community together and on the same page if they cant use the CrossFit name as catch-all. a lot of gyms are rebranding to something like Domination CF instead of Domination CrossFit since the CF isnt trademarked

edit: the other big worry seems to be that if there's no one unifying body, then there are no signature events or standards. so it'll be more difficult to get all the top athletes on 1 stage together.

80. "I don't quite get the level of outrage on this one"
In response to Reply # 72


          

It was flippant and callous to include George Floyd's name in the tweet but I didn't see it as racist, given some context.

He's been battling public health orgs for years because he thinks they don't know what they're doing. They called CrossFit ineffectual and questioned Glassman promoting low carb/sugar diets.

I believe he's a professed libertarian as well (why he set up the CrossFit affiliation program the way he did) so I'm sure he's one of those people that's also been skeptical of how the COVID epidemic has been handled.

I can see him getting triggered when an org that's been modeling the spread of the disease starts talking about treating racism as a public health issue as well.

But I guess most people are assuming that he's calling both COVID and racism fake.

Overall I think he has been an asshole for quite some time and being this willful about it was the tipping point.

Plus one of his top executives just quit as well.

And you're right, he has been an asshole every step of the way and alienated alot of people. I can understand this being the last straw for many people.

Ironically, the affiliate model he created for Crossfit is also going to mean it's swift demise as a company because most of the gyms out there don't really need HQ.

It raises some suspicion about his politics/worldview, but alarm? Cmon now.

But it was also weird to me that people reacted so virulently to that tweet. They’ve rode with this asshole this long.

Turns out the community knew of a bunch of worse shit he had said just hours before the tweet. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/ryancbrooks/crossfit-ceo-founder-zoom-greg-glassman-george-floyd

They all ran away from him so quickly because they knew that worse shit was about to go public and they didn’t want to be tied to the mast of a sinking ship.

if you see or know someone saying that, this is what they believe.

that is very clearly the tip of an iceberg.

it's not a coincidence that all these cats have the same content. it's just talking points designed to be acceptable enough to say in public, but they get them from other people saying the worse shit in private.

83. "NFL Exec: The league jumped on BLM after Mahomes cosign"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

https://theundefeated.com/features/the-power-of-patrick-mahomes-saying-black-lives-matter/?linkId=90459956

During an otherwise uneventful Super Bowl LIV news conference in Miami, Kansas City Chiefs superstar Patrick Mahomes paused to ponder a question about the importance of being a black quarterback playing for the NFL championship.

The son of a black father (longtime Major League Baseball pitcher Pat Mahomes) and a white mother, Mahomes had not been especially vocal on matters of race in his first three seasons. But as only the seventh black starting passer who would play in the Super Bowl, he understood the significance of the moment.

“The best thing about it is you’re showing kids that no matter where you grow up, what race you are, that you can achieve your dream,” Mahomes said then. “For me, being a black quarterback — having a black dad and a white mom — it just shows that it doesn’t matter where you come from.”

Just in case anyone was wondering, Mahomes identified himself as being a black quarterback. And last week, he made it even clearer where he stands.

The All-Pro was among a group of more than a dozen black NFL stars who pushed owners to acknowledge past wrongs and truly ride with them, releasing a powerful video in which they asked the league to admit it erred in its response to peaceful NFL player protests of police brutality and systemic oppression, condemn racism and affirm that Black Lives Matter. In an equally remarkable response only a day later, commissioner Roger Goodell checked the items on the players’ to-do list, even saying, “Black Lives Matter.”

The stunning shift in the league’s public stance on the peaceful protest movement occurred because some of its black stars — and especially black quarterbacks — drew a line in the sand. Several black and white league officials told The Undefeated that the importance of Mahomes’ involvement in the video can’t be overstated. He’s not only the game’s top black star. He’s the face of the entire NFL.

At only 24 (Mahomes won’t turn 25 until Sept. 17), he’s the youngest player to have a Super Bowl championship, league MVP award and a Super Bowl MVP award. Yet now his most impactful feat is helping reroute the league’s course on an issue that has, quite frankly, angered and flummoxed owners and top officials for several years.

It’s no coincidence that, following the Year of the Black Quarterback — a season in which African American passers rose higher than at any time in NFL history — Mahomes and Houston Texan Deshaun Watson partnered with other black stars in making a video that effected radical change. Once shunned by the NFL, black quarterbacks now have enormous juice resulting from their outstanding play. In the NFL today, it’s quite a good thing to be young, gifted and black while playing the sport’s most important position.

Doug Williams, the first black quarterback to start in a Super Bowl and be selected the game’s MVP, couldn’t be more impressed with the young quarterbacks, especially Mahomes.

“Let me tell you something … that was huge,” Williams said on the phone Saturday. “We’re not talking about a 15-year veteran. We’re talking about a young man who’s not even 25. He has been the MVP of this league. He has won a Super Bowl. Just right there, he’s already made an incredible impact in this league.

“Then he goes and does this at this time. With all these young people out here marching in the streets and demanding change, it’s a different time right now. You see that there are so many young people leading. It says a lot that he wanted to be involved in pushing for that change. It was very powerful.”

When then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick ignited the new civil rights movement in sports in 2016, Mahomes was producing video gamelike statistics during his junior season at Texas Tech. Now, he’s the brightest star in the NFL. Goodell and the owners are acutely aware of the power that accompanies Mahomes’ crown.

“Getting Mahomes to participate was so big,” a white NFL club official texted The Undefeated on Friday.

It wasn’t just that Mahomes was part of the group. He played a key role, looking into the camera and declaring for the first time in the video, “Black Lives Matter.”

Whoa.

At that moment, Goodell and the owners were backed into a corner. As hard as they have worked to avoid even the mere mention of race, often awkwardly, let alone the whole Black Lives Matter movement over the past four years, seeing their best player saying those words required an immediate shift in strategy.

The league was dragged into the national discussion about police brutality and systemic oppression by Kaepernick, and then was prodded to capitulate on opposing protesting and openly support its players by Mahomes. Two black quarterbacks setting the agenda for the NFL whether owners liked it or not. As late as the late 1980s, there was still a widespread belief in the league’s corridors of power that black quarterbacks lacked the smarts, heart and ability to truly lead on the field. We’re way past those days, having crossed over into the uncharted territory of black quarterbacks establishing the league’s off-field political agenda. The sea change occurred slowly, but it’s here now, as evidenced by the fact that Goodell put it on tape.

Quarterbacks run the NFL. They’re the on-field CEOs. Through his actions, Mahomes pushed Goodell and the owners to quickly and dramatically change direction, two things they’re generally loath to do, and go all-in on the reckoning occurring nationally on race and inequity.

It’s important to note that Mahomes has ventured deeper into controversial societal issues directly impacting the black experience in America than any top-of-the-game quarterback in NFL history. Part of the reason is this: Never before in league history has a classic dropback African American passer been the consensus No. 1 player at his position in any era.

Because Mahomes is a black quarterback, a black man, issues of race, as he explained in his own words, affect him and his family differently than they would, say, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, etc. At one point during the video, Mahomes says, “I am Tamir Rice,” referring to the 12-year-old black boy who was shot and killed by a Cleveland police officer in 2014. John Elway or Joe Montana couldn’t have gone there.

That’s not to suggest that white quarterbacks are disqualified from being allies in the fight for equality under the law. Philadelphia Eagles Pro Bowler Carson Wentz and Cincinnati Bengals rookie Joe Burrow denounced racism and expressed their support for African Americans in the wake of George Floyd’s killing at the hands of police. For both, that was a great look, prompting many on social media to laud them for their willingness to engage constructively about the black-white reality of America.

For years, retired Pro Bowl wide receiver Anquan Boldin, co-founder of the Players Coalition, has shared his hopes to have franchise quarterbacks stand with him in trying to uplift underprivileged communities.

“When you go around the league, and you see the faces of these franchises, it’s the quarterback, they’re the draw,” Boldin said on the phone Sunday. “So my point, from the beginning, is that if we could have those guys begin to speak out, what a difference it could make because of the kind of pull quarterbacks have in this league. A quarterback’s voice carries.”

Mahomes, however, has skin in the game. Literally.

He’s blazing a new trail despite the risks. Mahomes is whip-smart. He put himself out there in support of issues that many people who regularly fill Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium, and there’s no way to sugarcoat this, vehemently oppose. And he didn’t care.

Watson, who’s every bit a franchise passer and recently marched in a peaceful protest in Houston in the wake of Floyd’s killing, also deserves a lot of credit for helping to move the sticks a long way. As do all the players who united to send a message Goodell and the owners simply could not ignore.

But in one sense, being an NFL player is like any other occupation: Not everyone in the workplace has equal standing. Bottom line, Mahomes is on another level than other stars, and he wielded every bit of his clout like a sledgehammer to help demolish the league’s wrongheaded public approach toward players who protest.

His name is Patrick Lavon Mahomes II. He’s the best quarterback in the NFL. And by making a stand in the most important video in the league’s history, he became so much more.

I'd like to think the Panthers are using 'public saftey' as a cloak to just get rid of the shit. NFL (and it's lowkey still fuck them) found him guilty of racism and sexual harassment. Good riddance.
