But of course they will broadcast it during the Superbowl when it means big ratings/$$$... TV networks should be showing viewers what is going on, not hiding it from the public... so much for "real" reality tv...

Skip the meeting they’ve set up to address your protests. Not sure how avoiding conversation helps their cause, seems like another way for them to stick it to the man.

Texans owner says "we can't have the inmates running the prison"....

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/2...mcnair-comment

I think the correct saying is "lunatics running the asylum"

The players speaking out are either ignorant, or being disingenuous, as it is an obvious analogy and not meant to be taken literally. I do not think they are ignorant (but they could be, as I do not know them), so it is faux indignation.....which most people see through quickly, and why their 'protests' are falling on deaf ears. IMHO

“Our men are working Americans like anyone else. No one has the right to define them as anything less than a person," Smith said. "That is what this has always been about."

Reggie Bush- “He gotta go”

Richard Sherman- “I wish more ppl would do that. So the world could ostracize those who don’t want to see EQUALITY. Otherwise they will continue to hide“

Kyle Long- “What are the repercussions for the owner of the Texans referring to nfl players as inmates”


Amazing the ways they can twist a simple figure of speech.
I have no idea how you can come to that conclusion based on McNair’s simple analogy. If they are hurt about this I can’t imagine how depressed they’d be working a working class job with a working class wage without being pampered every where they go.
