    Fuck Brees. He made his bed (with his red Texas confederate flag sheets) now he has to sleep in it. Walk away and stay away from cameras. I’m sure you have a VIP suite at Mar-A-Lago you could spend your time at.

    Time to scrap the East/West divisions and realign the B1G into Rapists/Racists.

    Michigan State plays in both.

    Unfortunately, most people haven’t. Shame is not, in fact, a powerful motivator. What it is, however, is an extremely effective way to get people to lie and bury their real feelings.

    shame isn't the right word, but social pressure and discussions from familiars is basically THE way to impact change

    people he respected telling him to go fuck himself might have got him to listen to them when before he'd just go through the motions without challenging his own beliefs. gotta shake people up sometimes

    or maybe it's all PR spin

    There are some people who are never going to change, never deviate from a pattern of logic they've gotten themselves into and, I think, in heavy issues like racism that getting them to sit quietly in the dark and keep their cunt mouths shut is a close second to actually getting them to change.

    Talk to parents that quit smoking. It’s shame that finally does it for them. Shame is a feeling of both knowing that you are flawed and wanting to be different. Those are the two steps that have to happen before someone can hope to make a change.

    I don't buy it from Brees. Like he really didn't know what the protests were about 2 days ago? Even if that's true, imagine not giving a shit enough to learn about it for years.

    I am slightly conflicted about Brees. On the one hand, fuck him eternally for being so willfully ignorant about all of the pain of damn near everybody he works with merely because it didn’t affect him. Also, 12 hours of an apology isn’t worth shit.

    What he’s done is a start. Live it and understand it moving forward. I guess I won’t shit on him for the apology, but I’m skeptical that he won’t do something that totally undermines it in the future.

    Dude didn't care to understand or pretended not to understand what the protests were about for years but suddenly understands after 2 days when his livelihood and career are threatened. It's transparent as hell.

    I agree with this, but what is the “correct” way to respond? Again, I am not absolving him of anything or think this is anywhere near enough, nor do i think he deserves any accolades.

    Notn sure about that. The number of Tweets saying he was forced to change his original stance by the league makes me think this will fall deaf on the ears of people that need to hear it most. Maybe IG will be different.

    Way worse info coming out than this on Iowa. I want to believe Kirk is taking the right steps, and it sounds like he is saying the right things. A lot of players coming out and talking shit about the S&C coach and he needs to step down. All Iowa fans believe he is the best in the business and he gets paid that way, but he sounds like a dick and looks like he is racist so he needs to go.

    look at the reddit thread on Iowa, way more in-depth than what you see here. Doyle is fucked.

    Iowa City and the college I would say is pretty progressive compared to the rest of the state. Some rumors sound like Doyle is on paid leave now while they investigate it. There's no chance he survives this and maybe a 50/50 chance Kirk survives it.

    A lot of players coming out saying how they respect Kirk and still believe he should be the one leading the change, but Doyle needs to go. Talk about how a lot of former players have said they wouldn't come back to Iowa for anything until Doyle is gone, and this was previous to all of this coming out. So it's a known issue, which looks bad on Kirk.

    Actually, pretty surprised at the comments from Iowa's rival's site. A lot understanding there needs to be change and if that means Kirk has to go then he has to go. A few shitheads for sure, but less than I expected from a rivals site.
