Texans Owner Bob McNair Issues ANOTHER Apology For "Inmates" Comment (TWEET)

Texans Owner Bob McNair Issues ANOTHER Apology For

Today, the Texans owner released yet another statement, this time trying to explain exactly what he meant when he said, "We can't let the inmates run the prison". "More people in the world have to be that kind and that open about how they really feel so you can identify them - and make sure you stay away from those kind of people, and keep those people out of power".

President Trump began attacking the NFL players last month, calling Colin Kaepernick a "son of a bitch", and moved his focus to the NFL owners and the NFL itself after players not only continued their protests, but ramped them up as more players and even owners joined in. We made a decision to go to work. "I never meant to offend anyone and I was not referring to our players".

The Chronicle's John McClain reports that every Texans player was accounted for for the flight out west. "We are again honored to join with other Gamecock supporters in supporting the new football operations center at the University of SC".

"I think it was ignorant", Texans offensive tackle Duane Brown told reporters.

Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner and defensive end Cliff Avril vented their frustrations over McNair's comments on Twitter.

McNair met with his players Saturday morning to tell them he regretted making the comment. I think it angered a lot of players, including myself.

If he does win the competition then he may continue as a back-up to former Arsenal man Wojciech Szczesny . It's been 11 years since Buffon became world champion, but he lost 3 Champions League finals he played.

A day after issuing a public apology, Houston Texans owner and University of SC alum Bob McNair met with his players.

This isn't a surprise at all and there isn't anything McNair can do about it.

Although McNair has since apologized for his offensive comments, some believe the National Football League owner to be innocent because of his use of a figure of speech.

The Texans are 3-3 this season, and host the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

"I would never characterize our players or our league that way and I apologize to anyone who was offended by it".

Although I'd personally stand and put my hand over my heart for the national anthem, I can't abridge someone's constitutional right to free speech. You got to continue to feel how you feel.
