New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees Apologizes for Criticizing National Anthem Kneeling Protests

Published

Drew Brees took to Instagram on Thursday night to expound on his apology from earlier in the day for his comments on protesting during the national anthem. Those comments were widely criticized throughout many corners of the sports world.

Said Brees in the video apology he posted:

“I know there’s not much I can say that would make things any better right now, but I just want you to see in my eyes how sorry I am for the comments that I made yesterday. I know that it hurt many people, especially friends, teammates, former teammates, loved ones, people that I care and respect deeply. That was never my intention.

“I wish I would have laid out what was on my heart in regards to the George Floyd murder, Ahmaud Arbery, the years and years of social injustice, police brutality and the need for so much reform and change in regards to legislation and so many other things to bring equality to our black communities.

“I am sorry. And I will do better. And I will be part of the solution. And I am your ally. And I know no words will do that justice. ”

Protests across the United States have erupted following the death of George Floyd, a black man who died while in police custody on May 25.

However, in an interview with Yahoo! Finance posted Wednesday, Brees was asked about the possibility of protests during the national anthem at NFL games this season.

“I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country, he said. “Is everything right with our country right now? No, it is not. We still have a long way to go. But I think what you do by standing there and showing respect to the flag with your hand over your heart, is it shows unity. It shows that we are all in this together, we can all do better and that we are all part of the solution.”

Former NFL QB Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the anthem in protest of police brutality and other social and racial injustices during the 2016 season. While Kaepernick has not played in the NFL since that season, several players have continued some type of protest or demonstration during the anthem since, and kneeling was widespread during part of the 2017 season after critical comments made by President Donald Trump about the practice.

Mumbai: Sreesanth made a comeback after a gap of seven years. Sreesanth bowled for Kerala after a long absence in the first match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. The 2011 World Cup winner was returning to competitive action after more than 7 years during which he had a tumultuous time battling allegations of spot-fixing Indian Premier League games in 2013.

After conceding 9 runs in his first over Puducherry won the toss and opted to bat. However, the 37-year-old came back storming in his second over, picking up the wicket of Fabid Ahmed. Sreesanth took one wicket for 29 runs in four overs. Sreesanth conceded 9 runs in the first over, six runs in the second over, 10 runs in the third over and four runs in the fourth over. Sreesanth was unable to control his emotions as he looked up to the sky before celebrating the wicket with his teammates.
