First off, Jenkins wasn't even on the team "3 or 4 years ago".......perhaps you're thinking of Cam Jordan there.......or perhaps there was some dialogue between Brees and Jenkins........but either way, what Jenkins ended up doing was essentially kicking a man when he was already taking public backlash. The fact that people on this forum are fine with how it was handled, and even seemingly rejoicing in it, speaks volumes about their awful mindset on this matter.Well, they tried the direct aproach when they told him 3-4 years ago when it all started. He didn't listen. Jenkins tried to tell him again in private. He didn't listen. So they decided to do it in a way that...
Ok, fine..the subject at hand.I'd rather focus on the actual subject at hand than worry about a grown arse man being verbally "attacked."
That’s not true.They actually had it out in private. They talked on the phone and had a heart to heart moments before he posted his videos.
Exactly.I have seen lots of people over the last month or so have the same take as yourself on this- but they seem to convienently forget that Drew’s remarks were made on a public platform- so why shouldn’t the reaction to those remarks be public as well??
There are different people in the world with different personalities. Colston's greatest attribute in my opinion wasn't that he was a great player, teammate or any of that, but his quiet and calm presence. Of course, he's going to handle something that upsets him differently than someone who is outspoken. Still, Colston taking to twitter to say his peace is tantamount to screaming from a mountain top for most.This condescending "take" gives the implication that you and/or Malcolm Jenkins somehow know the best way to "reach" Drew Brees.
Telling Brees "(bleep) You" in a video is apparently something you see no issue with, or, at minimum, are tolerant of.
As others have said, he could have just called Brees up, like a man.......and stated "hey, here's why I take issue with this, this and that"........and even if he felt he did have to go to social media, could have handled it way more professionally.
People are incorrectly equating criticism toward Jenkins's approach as "shut up and dribble".............. if that's the case, why has no one taken Colston to task? Because Colston (who, by the way, also went to social media) addressed his difference in opinion in a far more professional manner..............Professional, which is what Drew Brees has been nothing but.
To say you and/or Jenkins know better than Brees how to handle that situation is simultaneously not giving the man near enough credit, while giving you and/or Jenkins way too much.
Brees did something wrong.Trust me, no one has forgotten that Brees did absolutely not one thing wrong and was merely answering a question, followed by getting unfairly/ridiculously chastised over it. You also quoted, but didn't acknowledge, the part that began with "and even if he felt he did have to go to social media"...
In addition, Brees didn't say "(bleep) those who are kneeling during the anthem". He stated his own personal position on the matter, professionally and with his usual class.
The fact that you'd post this shows exactly how closed minded you are and is exactly why everyone is clowning you throughout the entire thread.The fact that people on this forum are fine with how it was handled, and even seemingly rejoicing in it, speaks volumes about their awful mindset on this matter
this is what needs to be screamed from the mountaintopMore importantly, Brees's character shines through. He manned up. He called. He listened. He talked with those he upset and he apologized and he's changed his mind.
LOL. I'd encourage you to try a bit harder with both your worldview and your posts. You come off as a guy who thinks he's winning this thread but the deluge of clowns and dead Falcons should tell you otherwise. Try to have some self-awareness.I've literally seen no one call Malcolm Jenkins a "thug".
Stop trying so hard.
And you come off as exactly what Allen West described about white progressives........minus the part where you're bright enough/connected enough/wealthy enough to carry it out for the reason(s) he indicated. Meaning you're little more than just a race-baiting troll.LOL. I'd encourage you to try a bit harder with both your worldview and your posts. You come off as a guy who thinks he's winning this thread but the deluge of clowns and dead Falcons should tell you otherwise.
