Brett Favre Weighs In on National Anthem, Kneeling

Videos by OutKick

Brett Favre weighed in, kind of, on the subject of kneeling in the NFL.

The all-time great — who was last seen looking like Eminem peddling CBD — tapped into his vast NFL experience to say he has no idea what the answer should be.

“I know from being in an NFL locker room for 20 years, regardless of race, background, money you grew up with, we were all brothers it didn’t matter,” Favre told USA Today. “Guys got along great. Will that be the same (with kneeling scenario)? I don’t know. If one guy chooses to stand for his cause and another guy chooses to kneel for his cause, is one right and the other wrong? I don’t believe so. We tend to be fixed on highs.

“I don’t know what it’s like to be Black. It’s not for me to say what’s right and what’s wrong. I do know we should all be treated equal. If you can’t do that, you shouldn’t be in America.”

Favre played for four teams and had much more success than failure in his stellar career. He went on to say that there is a difficult balance that has yet to be achieved in the discussion.

“There’s no right answer,” Favre added. “Other than, the right answer is that we all get along. It seems like the more people try the more damage is done.”

One person who has been steadfast in not kneeling has been President Donald Trump. He was on with Clay Travis this morning to discuss that issue and more. You can listen to that full interview here.

  1. Favre is on record for sending a picture of his balls to a low level female assistant of the Jets organization, and more recently for dyeing his hair orangish blond. No offense to a great football player, but I’m not seeking out his advice on much at this point. Take away the rocket arm and intellectually he’s about on pace with a guy working at a tackle shop in the backwoods of Mississippi. Nothing wrong with that, I just only want that guys advice when it comes to fishing.

  2. Typical lightweight non answer i mean you just can’t say i believe we all should be able to stand and honor our country for a couple of minutes not to much to ask pretty pathetic.
