It would be Jimmy Graham all over though. The Saints would have to eat all of the guaranteed money, which will put the team in worse cap hell than they will be in for the next few years.Trade for draft picks wouldn’t be the worst outcome. Better disgruntled and gone, than disgruntled and killing the locker room.
No, they're tweets from Nick Underhill and Katherine Terrell in another thread. The "Michael Thomas out for MNF" thread. I read in there that both Thomas and Gardner-Johnson got into last year as well.Tweets from who? Can’t say that I’ve heard anything about any other altercations between the two. Was the tweets from their own personal Twitter accounts?
While the word is that he and CGJ have been at odds before...this sounds like a different situation. I don't want MT cancelled for something that he can hopefully learn from. If it continues to be disruptive, then yes. Unless there is something there that hasn't been reported on, I think it's too early to make that kind of a move.This I agree with. I love MT but if you cause locker room issues, bye bye buddy.
you gotta feed us more details man. This post is like dangling a steak at wolves and only letting them get a lick.I heard exactly what happened from someone that was there and what MT did was a HUGE cowardly move. Allot of other Saints players are pissed as well. Not a good look at all
Drew Brees received death threats because of his own public statements, not because of Michael Thomas. Brittany said so. She also said that it was a wake up call. And you blame what Slim Shady does on Michael Thomas?He expressed his "concern" in a less than constructive manner and chose to go straight to Twitter (publicly) than going directly to Drew (privately). Because he (and others) went public with it, Drew's family got death threats. Because he (and others) went public with it, Drew has the distinct privilege of being the first NFL QB to be told (F* You) by Slim Shady in song.
If that isn't throwing someone under the bus, I don't know what is.

Most of the people I've seen who take issue with Michael & Malcolm is around how they handled it...not because they had a problem with Drew's comments. I don't think it's fair to conflate the two.I like how every Malcolm Jenkins and Mike Thomas thread turns to "oh and how dare they call out Drew Brees for his ignorant statement this summer!"
Ok one, the death threats thing is horrible but....god I despise how everytime someone screws up the go to is "THEY RECEIVED DEATH THREATS!!!!". At this point, every public figure has received death threats. It's the sad reality of our world. Drew is not immune and let's not act like he's the first person ever to have trolls come at him. Freaking Danny Green missed a shot in a basketball game with his team up 3-1 in the Finals and he "received death threats" for it. Trolls are going to troll. This is nothing new. Hell, I guarantee Malcolm probably has received death threats for his work on social justice. This may sound heartless, but these trolls will give death threats to any public figure.Most of the people I've seen who take issue with Michael & Malcolm is around how they handled it...not because they had a problem with Drew's comments. I don't think it's fair to conflate the two.
Maybe I'm out of touch with where the state of civil discourse is today....but it seems that if someone I respected & had a meaningful relationship with said or did something that hurt me and seemed out of character, I would have first approached them privately to confirm my understanding of what was said / done and then provide feedback & perspective on why what that person said / did was hurtful or misguided. A meaningful dialog starts from there and hopefully things can be worked out.
Instead, they made less than constructive comments on social media, to thousands of people who don't know Drew the way that Michael & Malcolm do, was likely taken way out of context and resulted in Drew & his family getting death threats from irrational people. Again, I might be out of touch but whatever you feel about how insensitive or misguided Drew's statement might have been, I don't think any rational thinking person believes what Drew said was deserving of threats to kill his family being justified.
That might be why so many threads include people being critical of how they handled that situation.
