Former Green Bay Packers quarterback and NFL Hall of Fame member Brett Favre expressed his aversion to the current politicization of American sport on Sunday’s edition of The Andrew Klavan Show.
Former Fox host Eric Bolling, who co-hosts the “Bolling With Favre” podcast alongside the legendary signal-caller, also joined the Klavan podcast.
When Klavan asked Favre if he was surprised at how sport politics has turned out in the ten years since his (last) retirement, Brett said, “Yeah, I think both sides, for the most part , want it to just stay on sport, not politics. At least that’s my interpretation.
“I know that when I activate a game, I want to watch it,” he continued. “I want to see the players play and the teams win and lose and come back from behind. I want to watch all the important parts of the game, not what happens outside of the game. I think the general fan feels the same. “
Next, host Andrew Klavan mentioned the current racial tension in America and inquired about whether Brett’s teams in the NFL had a racial divide in the locker room.
“Absolutely not,” Favre replied. “In fact, it was sort of our protected space if you will, where we could kind of let our guard down. We were in something together. We fought together. We won together. We lost together. And we really were a family. So yes, to answer your question, we had absolutely no problems. I’m not sure what, if any, issues they face in the locker room other than what I’m hearing or assumptions. So if there are problems in the locker room, it’s a shame.
Continuing, Favre and Klavan discussed the MLB decision to move the All-Star Game out of Georgia, the NFL players kneeling during the national anthem, President Trump and more.
