Houston Texans Owner Bob McNair Regrets Apologizing for ‘Inmates Running the Prison’ Comment

Published

on

Last October, at the height of the debate over NFL players protesting our national anthem, Houston Texans owner Bob McNair made headlines when ESPN reported that he compared the player’s protests to “inmates running the prison” during a meeting with team owners, executives and league officials.

Shortly after his comment began to make headlines across the nation, McNair issued this apology:

“I regret that I used that expression. I never meant to offend anyone and I was not referring to our players. I used a figure of speech that was never intended to be taken literally. I would never characterize our players or our league that way and I apologize to anyone who was offended by it.”

But McNair now regrets issuing that apology, telling the Wall Street Journal on Thursday that he had “nothing to apologize for.”

“The main thing I regret is apologizing. … I really didn’t have anything to apologize for,” McNair said.

The Texans owner went on to tell the Journal that his “inmates” analogy wasn’t intended to be a reference to the league’s players, but NFL executives who McNair feels have more power than the owners.

“We were talking about a number of things, but we were also washing some of our dirty linen, which you do internally,” McNair continued. “You can’t do that publicly. That’s what I was addressing: The relationship of owners and the league office.”

After ESPN inaccurately characterized McNair’s comments, Houston Texans offensive lineman, Duane Brown, was one of the only players to speak out publicly against the team’s owner.

Brown, who raised his fist during the national anthem prior to a 2016 game in order to “protest” what he claimed was racial inequality and oppression, took aim at McNair’s comments:

“I think it was ignorant. I think it was embarrassing. I think it angered a lot of players, including myself. We put our bodies and minds on the line every time we step on that field, and to use an analogy of inmates in prison, that’s disrespectful. That’s how I feel about it.”

The Texans offensive lineman also went on to claim McNair used a team meeting to blast Barack Obama’s victory in the 2008 Presidential campaign.

“He came to talk to the team,” Brown said. “He was visibly upset about it. He said, ‘I know a lot of y’all are happy right now, but it’s not the outcome that some of us were looking for.’ That was very shocking to me.”

McNair denies any such meeting ever occurred.

“I don’t go into meetings and express views like that,” McNair said. “I never said that. He has no problem saying things that are not true.”

According to a nationwide survey conducted in November, some 60 percent of Americans disagreed with the NFL’s handling of the national anthem protests.

VIDEO: Dana White Devastates New York Times Hack After Successful UFC Pay-Per-View

White put the fake news in their place.

Published

UFC promoter Dana White has been dogged by fake news reporters for pushing to continue his fights during the coronavirus panic, as they have worked at every turn to stop him from giving his fans what they want.

“A lot of these media guys are absolute and total f**king scumbags,” he said last month. “As soon as you let them know what you’re doing, all they’re trying to do is f**k up everything that you’ve worked. So I’ve literally told every one of these guys to go f**k themselves and I’m not telling any of them what I’m doing, where I’m doing it.”

The push back from fake news hacks and Democrat Party officials eventually forced White to cancel several shows, but he held the ultra successful UFC 249 pay-per-view on May 9. They drew a massive 700,000 buys for the event as the public grows more disgusted with the unprecedented shutdown of society.

“We absolutely destroyed it,” White said to Yahoo Sports via the telephone on Monday. “It was a home run by every measure. The early trends were good and they continued.”

The fake news media is very angry that White was able to hold a successful show despite their complaining. There have been prominent hit pieces published about the organization in the days following the event.

White’s response is classic and shows exactly how an individual or an entity should deal with the fake news vultures when under attack.

“F**k that guy… F**k that guy,” White said of the New York Times reporter who wrote an article critical of the UFC.

“You know what happened with that guy? That guy, who has never covered the sport ever before, was writing a story about [UFC parent corporation] Endeavor… and what do you think happened when this guy who and this paper covered the UFC when they never covered it before? What do you think happened? F**kin’ story was huge. They did killer traffic,” White explained.

White explained how the popularity of his organization was propping up the failing rag that is hemorrhaging money and going bankrupt rapidly.

“Now they’re writing stories three a week, and they’re posting live results. I don’t give a s**t what that guy thinks, what he has to say, or what he writes. Good for him, he’s pulling good traffic,” he added.

“I don’t give a f**k. Don’t give a f**k,” White said to conclude his rant.

White has set a great example to anyone who must deal with journalistic parasites. His defiance has put them in their place and humiliated them on a grand scale.
