Conrad Dobler Hates Brees

The truth sometimes hurts Conrad. Bad. Are you sure he wasn't calling Vikings' fans whiny old men?

"He's never called the retired players or communicated with us for saying something that was false about us. We're not complainers. We just want the system to be better. He portrayed us as irresponsible. Older players aren't the irresponsible ones."

Then, referring to Plaxico Burress, Dobler said, "You don't see retired players shooting themselves in the leg at a nightclub the way current players do."

Dobler was then asked if he has ever spoken to Brees. "Drew Brees is way too important to speak with us," he said. "Most of the current players ignore us. Brees is no different."

This is what Brees told USA Today last January when speaking of the complaints of the retired players: "There's some guys out there that have made bad business decisions. They took their pensions early because they never went out and got a job. They've had a couple divorces and they're making payments to this place and that place. And that's why they don't have money. And they're coming to us to basically say, 'Please make up for my bad judgment.' In that case, that's not our fault as players."
Brees added that he respected retired players -- "They shaped the game for us. Because of those guys, we have an opporutnity to play this game, to make the money that we make" -- but didn't agree with their criticism of the union on the issue.

Re: Conrad Dobler Hates Brees

Who da heck is Conrad Dobbler, anyway? Brees DOES have a point, methinks. I look at some grown kids for example. You tell them and tell them not to do certain things, but they decide to do those things anyway, and when they come back and bite them in the rearend, they want daddy or mama to bail them out....over and over again. At some point, a person has to take personal responsibility for their lives and their decisions.

Re: Conrad Dobler Hates Brees

if my mind serves me correctly, conrad dobler is a whiny old man, cuz he was always getting into hissy fits with bill bergey on the field. Kept whining to the refs about him all game long. Stick to what you know conrad, football doesn't need you, hardly any1 remembers you. Let brees lead the way, hes one of the smartest players in sport

You don't remember the "taste great, less filling" commercials? In football, he played 2 years for the Saints but is best known with the Cardinals. He was a mean SOB. Punched Mean Joe Greene if memory serves correct. I'm glad he's old now so Drew is pretty safe and doesn't have to employ McCray as a bodyguard.

Dobler was drafted out of the University of Wyoming in the 1972 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Cardinals, and quickly developed a reputation as a tough customer. "I see defensive linemen jump to knock a pass down. When that happened near me, I'd smack 'em in the solar plexus, and that got their hands down real quick."[1] After six years in St. Louis and three consecutive Pro Bowl appearances (1975-77), he made the cover of Sports Illustrated, who heralded Dobler as "Pro Football's Dirtiest Player".[2]

In 1978, however, Dobler suddenly became a Saint: the Cardinals traded him to New Orleans, where he played two years. He then played two final seasons with the Buffalo Bills, retiring after the 1981 campaign. Dobler, known for such transgressions as punching Mean Joe Greene, spitting on a downed and injured opponent (the Eagles' Bill Bradley) and kicking Merlin Olsen in the head,[

Re: Conrad Dobler Hates Brees

Ok, I know who Conrad Dobbler is....but maybe I should have said it this way, "What real relevance does Conrad Dobbler have right now?" There!

Indy, sorry, you actually messed that up. You meant to say, "I bow down to thee, O' great WHO DAT Nation, and fess up that I know that The Mighty New Orleans Saints ARE going to win Super Bowl XLIV." Now...all better!
