What NFL players are saying about Bob McNair's 'inmates' comment
30 October 2017, 01:53 | Donald Newman
Texans players considered walkout over Bob McNair comment
"Some people comment on my post, saying, 'it's just a figure of speech.' I mean, agree or disagree, figure of speeches aren't okay in 2017", Green said.
The conflict came at a critical time for the National Football League, which has been in talks with players to address some of the concerns that led them to abstain from standing for the anthem, including the criminal justice system and, more specifically, the treatment of African-Americans by the police.
President Trump began attacking the NFL players last month, calling Colin Kaepernick a "son of a bitch", and moved his focus to the NFL owners and the NFL itself after players not only continued their protests, but ramped them up as more players and even owners joined in. "We need to just work together going forward". "I never meant to offend anyone and I was not referring to our players".
However, it seems the Texans plan on publicly displaying their dissatisfaction. "It's something that we'll reconvene and talk about again, but we had practice today".
Brown said he found McNair's comments "disrespectful" but said, "I can't say I'm surprised, and".
Whatever happens, players on teams in the rest of the league also took notice of McNair's remarks, with some calling him akin to Donald Sterling, the former Los Angeles Clippers owner who was suspended and forced to sell his team by the National Basketball Association after racially charged remarks that were recorded came to light.
