I No problem with this. The minute it was over Drew was think about football.

The NFL wants a subtle clarification of the property rights laws. This is not something one would see in a defensive secondary or a playbook.

Furthermore, unless you can state what it is exactly that will make the league more or less competitive by NFL challenge, then STAY OUT OF THE DISCUSSION. You failed to do this on both ends.

Jeez. Win baby, just freakin win.
You obviously don't know that Drew Brees is part of the NFLPA Executive Committee, nor understand the ramifications of the single-entity ruling the NFL is seeking, or the impact it will have not only on the players' pockets, but the pockets of fans as well.

Holy cow Drew, this is what you've worked your whole life for.
All Drew did was sign an editorial written by lawyers. It's not like it took
hours away from his practice time. But you're right, I don't like distractions,
even small ones.

Re: Where is your mind, Drew Brees?

Yes, I did know, and, no, I don't care. That litigation has been out of the hands of the NFLPA for some time now. Amicus briefs are not his responsibility nor is it his skill set. Shut up and win. Then and only then will he be given a pass on crap like this. You never saw Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, or any successful QB in football go off the reservation when it's the back nine of the Masters, the last quarter of the Finals or at any time during the playoffs. Take care of business.

In 1993 Michael Jordan spends the night before the May 26 playoff game gambling in Atlantic City casino.

And I wouldn't even venture to guess how many times Tiger enjoyed one of his many trysts on the Saturday night prior to a final round.

You are way off base here.

.. obviously you never heard of Joe Namath, or Ken Stabler, or Terry Bradshaw, or Jim McMahon, or MJ going to Atlantic City to gamble during playoffs, etc etc etc.

The litigation is not out of the hands of anyone until the ruling is made (and even after that, the decision can be appealed). Drew Brees has a responsibility as a member of the NFLPA Executive Committee to lobby for the players' and the players union cause.

As important as the Saints winning a championship is to you, I am sure that the future of his family and his career is of more importance to Brees. This decision will directly affect his paycheck, benefits, etc.

Who are you to give or not give a pass to anyone, much less Drew Brees?

If there's someone who should shut up, it's you.

Re: Where is your mind, Drew Brees?

Pointless.
If Brees had a ring, you'd have a point. He doesn't, you don't.

Clearly, 43 years of watching Saints players eyeing something other than the prize hasn't affected you.

Take a page from Ray Lewis yesterday. All he did was study film and prepare. He didn't commit manslaughter, or go to a casino, he didn't slut around, and he didn't try to use big words in a pointless PR campaign. He won. And he's won before. Brees hasn't. Jordan already had 2 rings prior to going to a casino. Woods had already won 10 majors before his father/babysitter died. And how bout that Tom Brady or Peyton Manning? always doing stupid stuff instead of preparing.

How many times has the Saints been in this situation? NONE.

Lombardi didn't say "Go off on tangents, let's meet up somewhere down the line." He said,"Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing."

Shut up and win.

Safe at home.

Now THAT is just nonsense.

You have absolutely NO IDEA what Ray Lewis did this week. NONE. ZERO.

You have NO IDEA what MJ did or didn't do prior to winning a ring. "Jordan already had 2 rings prior to going to a casino".. please, child...

You have NO IDEA what all of the people you mentioned did or didn't at any time before winning anything OTHER THAN WHAT IS/WAS REPORTED.

.. not only that, you are talking about a letter that probably took a person of Brees' education 30 minutes, if not less, to write.
