My brother sent me the clip of Brees and we both thought how tone deaf. But I think Brees is smart enough to say the right things and bring the team back together. That looks like it's already happening today. While I agree the whole COVID scare provides context to sports for many, I still think it's a welcome distraction. Just like the first game in the Dome after Katrina or GWB throwing out that first pitch. Yes we have major major problems in our society and culture, but sports offers a lot. Yes it's obscene how much money athletes get paid compared to teachers who can barely feed their families. But many athletes do a lot of good with their money and provide opportunities for underprivileged that they wouldn't have otherwise.
All in all I'm hopeful that Brees can learn from this and see others perspective and the team can rally around him. He's done a lot of good for our city, and those f Brees chants weren't so widespread. Whether or not there will be a normal season because of COVID is another story..
