Drew Brees says his harsh comments toward Roger Goodell, NFL were warranted

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; "They've moved the goal posts, and they're playing by a completely different set of rules. And those rules change, however they see fit."

Drew Brees says his harsh comments toward Roger Goodell, NFL were warranted

"They've moved the goal posts, and they're playing by a completely different set of rules. And those rules change, however they see fit." Brees told Yahoo! Sports. "I don't believe this process has been executed fairly from the beginning. I feel that there have been biased opinions this entire time, and I think there's an agenda at play here, I feel that there's ego and arrogance involved as well.

"I feel that there are some personal issues, beyond the facts. I don't believe many of these decisions were based on facts -- certainly not credible information. This is based on speculation, rhetoric and the testimony of two pretty unreliable sources. So, that part really disappoints me, and I'll say this in all honesty. As a guy who's been in the league for 12 years, I have seen a lot from an experienced player's perspective, the NFL seems a little out of control right now, in the way it's being conducted and run from the top on down."

Brees continued his attack going after the league's handling of the replacement officials.

"When you look at the way this replacement referee situation was handled through the first four games ... it wasn't until a game was actually lost (that a deal was reached)," Brees said. "And the amazing thing was, the NFL actually came out and backed the call made by the referee, when everybody in America -- fans and players, except for maybe Seattle fans and Seattle players -- would sit there and tell you that was an interception. 'I don't care when the rule says' -- maybe you'd better change the rule, then. Because if every player in the NFL, and every fan in the NFL, knows that was an interception, and you're backing the call that says it wasn't, maybe we need to change the rule. Or, it's just a lack of accountability. I've found that throughout this (bounty process), as well -- there's been a real lack of leadership and a lack of accountability. From the top down."

Owners at the owners' meeting in Chicago will be opening their morning newspapers to this story and reading these quotes from Drew tomorrow. Everything Goodell says or does at the meetings will be under a microscope of potential bad PR. Love it.

You gotta respect a guy who stands up for what he believes in.

Everything he said is correct except even the Seattle fans and players knew it was an interception.
