Drew Brees May Be A HypocriteSeptember 19th, 2013
Yesterday, New Orleans Saints quarterback sounded off on Bucs safety Dashon Goldson as being a dirty player. This, just days after the Saints narrowly beat the Bucs at the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway.
Brees was quoted as saying, “He (Goldson) certainly has no regards for rules in the middle; he’s going after guys’ heads. You can see it. … There are some instances where it’s pretty obvious a guy’s going after another guy’s head.”
This morally offended Dory LeBlanc of WDAE-AM 620. She began tapping on her laptop to all but call Brees a hypocrite for his comments on Goldson and the Bucs.
What makes the comments ironic and almost hypocritical is that Brees and the Saints have just been reunited with their head coach after Sean Payton served a one-year suspension for what is commonly referred to as “Bountygate.”
Goldson had the right to appeal his suspension, just as the four current and former Saints players did in the Bountygate scandal. The end result was that former NFL Commisioner Paul Tagliabue vacated the players’ suspension, finding that the coaches were primarily responsible for the bounty scheme.
Brees was outspoken throughout last year, defending his teammates and coaches, even taking the discussion to CBS News’ Person To Person.
Yeah, Joe thought it was rich that a guy who plays for a team that was busted for bounties, which is as dirty at it can get, is throwing rocks at glass houses calling other players headhunters when the NFL does not exactly agree after looking at video evidence.
Joe guesses if Goldson was paid extra cash to knock people out of a game, then Brees would have been good with that.
