Brett Favre says he wants politics outside of sport – kneeling in the anthem has created “more fuss”
Brett Favre wants to keep politics out of the sport.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame said so much on Sunday in an interview on the “Andy Klavan Show” that the host of the same name is a commentator and conservative writer. Favre said the mix of sport and politics has hurt him because former fans don’t want to confuse him with outside political or social comments.
“I know when I turn on a game I want to watch a game,” Favre said he said. “I want to see how the players play and see the teams win, lose, come behind. I want to see all the important parts of the game, not what’s going on outside the game, and I think the general fans feel the same way.
“I can’t tell you how many people have said to me,‘ I don’t see you anymore; it’s not about the game anymore. “And I usually agree.”
Favre’s comments came a few days before MLB He took the All-Star game out of Atlanta Georgia’s vote as a result of the new restrictive law. Three days after appearing on the Favre Klavan show, three Minnesota sports franchises – the MLB Twins, the NBA Timberwolves and the NHL Wild – all delayed games Daunte Wright, a black man killed by a white policeman after being shot dead. The NFL Vikings released a statement calling for renewed police training and improved relations in the Black community.
Favre, who was on October 30, 2020, he tweeted That Donald Trump would vote for the then president, then asked why it would be controversial for him to side with Trump in the face of the generations that were playing the national anthem. He said he was in favor of kneeling the debate, adding that the action had caused “more unrest than benefit”.
“I think the jury will know if it’s going to be a good thing or not. I think it’s created more confusion than good,” Favre said. “Something has to unite us. And it’s been a kind of unity of the past game or games or sport. Now it’s almost a division.
“It’s a shame, it’s very bad.”
