Brett Favre Compares Colin Kaepernick to
Pat Tillman: ‘I Assume Hero Status Will Be
Stamped’

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 6/22/2020 2:15:13 PM

Brett Favre says that Colin Kaepernick’s decision to forego his NFL career in order to continue his anthem protests and social justice movement, is a sacrifice in league with former NFL player and Army Ranger Pat Tillman. Further, Favre believes that eventually Kaepernick, like Tillman, will be thought of as a “hero.” In a recent interview with TMZ, the former Packer legend went in-depth on his reasoning for believing that Kaepernick deserves heroic status for his protests and movement. “It’s not easy for a guy his age — black or white, Hispanic, whatever — to stop something that you’ve always dreamed of doing, and put it on hold,

Comments:

Absolutely moronic!! Pat Tillman gave up his career to serve his country. Kraperdork gave up his to serve himself and his ego!! Farve is comparing apples to elephants here!!

I always found Favre a dolt on the field, incessantly and desperately throwing into triple coverage for an INT late in games, instead of trying to move the ball down the field safely for the win. Now I know he's a dolt off the field as well.

This reminds me of a story a sports radio personality told about Favre. The radio personality idolized Favre and did not realize how badly the story actually reflected on him. The story was that one of Favre's backup once asked Favre why he had thrown a particular pass into a situation where an interception was a real possibility, and rather than explain why he thought the defender would not get to the ball, Favre replied, "Because I can." Which explains why he got intercepted so often. and is the sort of thinking that leads him to make this moronic statement.

I'm not a football fan, but even I know there is no comparison. Bet Colon did this because it is a way out for him because he can't play ball any more. He's too old.

Better to keep you mouth up and let people think you are normal, rather than open your yap and prove that you are an idiot. Kaepernick is more like Benedict Arnold, IMO.

I guess that he's searching for relevance now that his hawking of copper infused athletic socks has tanked. Despite his confident, "Still got it" in the commercial, it's clear that he doesn't and the hits to his noggin has had the same affects that they have for Bradshaw.

One can 'admire' Kaepernick for taking a stand for what he believed but it doesn't necessarily make him heroic. I don't happen to agree with him or the time and place he chose. His decision cost him dearly and it has cost the NFL billions in revenue. When players realize their paychecks will shrink in the next contract season, I can guarantee a strike is coming but it will have been Kaepernick who shot and killed the golden goose for EVERYONE.

Brett Farve is now entered into the Hall of Fame of stupid. Pat Tillman quit the NFL to join the army to fight against terrorists and died doing so. Kapers-it made millions for playing a game, and put socks on with police pigs on them, and then cried racism at every turn. Brett you stupid idiot.

It's not like Favre is still playing and worried about retribution from the majority black NFL players. He's too stupid to coach, too dull to be a tv commentator, maybe angling for more ad revenue from the funky products I see him pushing. Well that's out the window, no? I'd say Brett Favre has comprehensively pooped the bed.

Like actors, many sports stars know just how to do their particular "trick" which gained them fame, and it is common to discover that they are not particularly intelligent or well educated, or well read, outside of their particular milieu. And often, they are really dolts, and quite ignorant. It looks like Mr. Favre is showing his lack of much knowledge. He would have been far better off to have kept his thoughts to himself.

I have long wondered why we held these game players on such a vaunted pedestal. Their “game” mimics heroics on a well manicured playing field, AND they are well compensated for their game playing. Colin himself has been very well compensated and pampered. Pat Tillman? He gave it all up and went to the real world most dangerous and physically demanding “calling” (not job). He did not go to a REMF job. He went to the tip of the spear. He did all that on enlisted pay. Farve is so low on the scale of life as a game player, that his pathetic comment only adds to how ridiculous he looks mincing around on a manicured lawn tossing a ball.

Brett is a great example of "too many hits to the head" syndrome. He was never a great student in college and he was an idiot when he was exposed as a stalker / sexual harrasser in NY when he went after "Jen". His offerings have the value of what people pick up on the sidewalks from their dogs.

Mr. Favre, you have insulted the families of those who fought for our country and perished in combat, you have insulted those who fought for our country and were wounded in combat. You are like so many who say, I wish I would have signed up for the military. Your statement is extreme overcompensation as a man, revealing your inadequacy, cowardice and jealousy.

It is hard to have a rational discussion when a person rejects the notion of looking at facts. Those who rely solely on feelings insist on denying facts, data, and science. They trust intuition and feelings, not reality. That’s why the saying, “My facts don’t care about your feeling,” has gained traction. Attorney General William Barr committed the ultimate heresy in the eyes of Leftists when he cited data. He recently noted that there has been a consistent reduction in the number of deaths of Blacks by police. Five years ago, the total number was 38, last year, 10.

While the statue stood, an American flag was draped over its head and set ablaze. After it was pulled down, a new fire was set on another American flag spread across the statue, and also burned.

It was just one of the many hoaxes, put out there to demonize Trump. But turns out there was in fact an N-word video, only it was Kimmel himself who was using the word repeatedly.

The low turnout at the Trump campaign rally in Tulsa is an ominous sign for the upcoming election. Brad Parscale, Trump 2020 campaign manager, blamed the media, saying it spooked people with its constant hyping of the damages of the Wuhan virus. That is undoubtedly true, and accordingly, that disappointing turnout is not a true indication of the support the president has. However, it does show the power the liberal media still has in framing the narrative. Remember, the low turnout was at the rally in Tulsa, which is hardcore Trump country. We conservatives have to be careful of myopic thinking.

The investigation included photographic evidence from last fall. “We appreciate the FBI’s quick and thorough investigation and are thankful to learn that this was not an intentional, racist act against Bubba,” NASCAR said in a statement. “We remain steadfast in our commitment

After reviewing prior video of that specific garage bay, at that specific speedway; and after reviewing a picture released yesterday showing the FBI investigators on the scene; it is clear the “rope noose” in question was nothing more than a manual garage door pull-down with a hand loop tied into it.

Seattle will move to end the police-free zone known as the "Capitol Hill Organized Protest," or "CHOP," after two recent shootings, one of which was deadly, Mayor Jenny Durkan announced Monday -- signaling that a stunning chapter in the city's history could be drawing to a close. The mayor said the violence was distracting from changes sought by thousands of peaceful protesters seeking to address racial inequity and police brutality. Activists set up "CHOP" in the city's Capitol Hill neighborhood about two weeks ago, barricading off the area after police evacuated a ransacked precinct building there.

Lincoln County, Oregon, has exempted non-white people from a new order requiring that face coverings be worn in public—to prevent racial profiling.

Gina Raimondo signed an executive order Monday taking the “first steps” to change the state’s full name: “The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.” The “plantations” portion has come under increased scrutiny following widespread protests after the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. The order, Executive Order 20-48, will change the name to just “Rhode Island” in official communications from the governor’s office—including future executive orders,

A dozen states have seen record highs in new coronavirus cases, blares the news media, accompanied by dire warnings of a “second wave” of the disease because those awful Republican states reopened too soon. Once again, however, the mainstream press is needlessly scaring the public by hiding the relevant context. One news outlet put it this way: “The U.S. reported more than 33,000 new coronavirus cases on Saturday – the highest total since May 1 – while the surge of infections in several states is outpacing growth in coronavirus testing.” White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow tried to tamp down the panic
