    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees revisited his initial remarks about kneeling during the national anthem on Saturday, explaining that he “missed an opportunity” in saying he would not agree with anyone “disrespecting the flag.”

    In a conference call with reporters, Brees again expressed remorse for his June comments about players kneeling during the national anthem amid the renewed debate following the May 25 death of George Floyd.

    “To think for a second that New Orleans or the State of Louisiana, or the Black community would think I was not standing with them for social justice, that completely broke my heart,” he said. “It was crushing. Never, ever would I feel that way.”

    He continued: “I recognize that I missed an opportunity that day. I had an opportunity to talk about and emphasize the social injustices that exist for our Black community and our need as a country to support them and advocate for systemic change.”

    “And my lack of awareness in that moment hurt a lot of people.”

    Brees said he’s since had conversations with the team, many who have openly accepted his apologies and decided to stand behind their quarterback.

    Brees singled out safety Malcolm Jenkins, who had been among his harshest critics on social media before Brees' public apology, saying, "I am a friend of Malcolm, I am his teammate and I am his ally. There are many things that we’re having a conversation about working on together. All of our goals are aligned.”

    But despite a number of apologies, Brees announced Saturday that he intends to stand during the national anthem while also supporting his teammates who choose not to.

    “I’ll always stand for the flag because of what it means to me and to honor all those who have sacrificed, who have served and died for our country, and all those who have struggled to move this country forward,” he said.

    “I acknowledge and respect anyone who chooses to kneel or any other form of peaceful protest to bring attention to social injustice and system racism that so many have endured and continue to endure in our country.”

    Brees added that he will “always” support the “fight for social justice.”

    Lmfao join the club. Kaepernick in 2016 was kicked out the league for NOT standing. So was Eric Reid. Until eventually they gave him a shot and he has dominated ever since. Both were blackballed out of the league after kneeling during the anthem back in 2016 and vilified you stupid fuck. Quick to forget
    They call me a menace. And if the shoe-fits I’ll wear it. But if it don’t, then y’all swallow the truth grin and bare it.

    He was kicked out of the league because he sucks.

    You know nothing about football.


    Everyone who knows football knows that’s a lie.

    Because if you watched the years that followed, they started horse shit at QB. You don’t know anything about football though, little girl.

    Say what you will, how'd he do in his final year in the league before he met the racist girlfriend of his and became all radical?

    He was great for possibly the worst roster I have seen in the last decade at least. Don’t know anything about his girlfriend. But no man in the nfl is letting a woman control their lives. Promise you that

    They probably had the worst roster since the 0-16 2008 lions


    But you don’t know football so you wouldn’t know that. Lmao

    I can guarantee you the reason he didn’t take a knee is because Becky Hammon didn’t. And the only reason why.

    Rightfully so, no? he's an employee - boss said he was hurting his business - that's what happens - see the vid of the girl calling the cops on the black bird watcher? see the vid of the girl that was gonna stab anyone that said all lives matter? they too were bad for business and fired - that's how it works in the real world - when is ur next seminar about ur rights? u get a hat and shirt with admittance?

    Again, in this thread yelling racism is a white guy raised in the richest county in Maryland. He's the Karen of this forum.

    Yeah, but he said he didn't know what the mask represented. He back tracked on it
