Drew Brees claims Goodell comments “blown out of proportion

When Saints quarterback Drew Brees said no one trusts NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, it drew lots of attention. Too much attention, according to Brees.

Asked to elaborate on those comments today, Brees refused. And he suggested that the media made his comments a bigger deal than he intended.

“I’m not going to comment further on it,” Brees said. “If there’s any dialogue that would need to take place, I would talk to the commissioner directly. By no means was that meant to be disrespectful. I was asked a direct question about how the players felt and I gave a very honest and direct answer. I think it was blown out of proportion a little bit when the headlines say I was blasting the commissioner. No, that wasn’t the case. That was really all I said and I really have nothing else to say about it.”

He's shrugging and playing "aw-shucks" innocent, but I still maintain he knows exactly what he is doing with this.

I don't even want to say what I am really thinking right now. Media makes out everyone to be a bunch of pansies.

He is in the business long enough to know what halpens after duch a statement from him. I really like him, but he should start playing football and leave the talking to the managers

Personally, I'm glad that he has stepped up and pointed the finger at Godhell. He isn't back tracking..........he's gotten his message across and is going to let his statements reflect that. No one trusts Roger the Tool.
