Owner Bob McNair attempted to pick up the pieces of his franchise on Saturday as he met with his players in an effort to explain himself after referring to NFL players as “inmates” during an NFL meeting.
Houston Texans’ owner Bob McNair held a special meeting with his players on Saturday, a day after news broke that he referred to NFL players as “inmates” during a meting with the other 30 NFL owners, where they were discussing how to deal with player protests.
Of course McNair expressed plenty of remorse and regrets that he’s distracted his players with his comments.
McNair also released a statement on the Texans’ public relations Twitter account.
Looking at McNair’s statement, I have a hard time believing that he was really talking about the NFL league office and the owners when he talked about not allowing the inmates to run the prison. It’ obvious that he was talking about the players having too much control with their ability to protest.
The good news for McNair is that all of his players will show up for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.
I look forward to seeing how McNair plans on repairing his relationship with his players, because I’m sure almost all of them no longer trust him.
As much as McNair may not value his players and may not agree with protests, they’re lining his pockets with plenty of money. He’s just upset because he can’t control them.
Comment below and give us your thoughts on the mess that McNair has created and how you think it will affect them as a team going forward.
