Drew Brees: ‘I Disagree With What The President Said’

Drew Brees is the most recognizable athlete who suits up for a Louisiana-based pro sports team. He’s become a legend in the state of Louisiana, and will likely go down as one of the greatest athletes ever tied to this state. So when he comments, people listen.

After President Donald Trump refereed to some of Brees’ teammates with profanity this weekend, protests exploded across the NFL. Brees stated after the game that he doesn’t personally agree with the protest, but did make it clear that he also doesn’t agree with the President.

Brees said:

“I disagree with what the President said and how he said it. I think it’s very unbecoming of the office of President of the United States, to talk like that, to degrade people like that.  Obviously, he’s disappointed a lot of people.”

Another legendary Louisiana sports figure is Saints Head Coach Sean Payton. When Payton was suspended by the NFL after the “Bounty-gate” scandal, the entire state engaged in “Free Payton” protests.

Payton stated:

“I’m proud of every one of those guys, I would say personally I’m disappointed in the comments that were made. I think we need a little more wisdom in that office. That’s being a little blunt but that’s how I feel. I want that guy to be one of the smarter guys in the room, and it seems like every time he’s opening his mouth it’s something that’s dividing our country and not pulling us together.”
