Want to be is beat bit and continue to be better and you know so you know unified and things like this so you know we we just gonna keep trying to do better and you know as a full watching we'll keep trying to do better so long long. And so I chose to click cut reaction to what the Donald Trump said on Friday night like that I understand why you would be pissed so. I would ask this question then. Why is it. A symbolic gesture towards the flag and toward the anthem. If you were any other player is pissed off Donald Trump you can afford to got a four year every Monday commute you could sit there and say what the president said on Friday night was discussing we're not some of the pitches and sorry you know do we we do a lot of good things in the community and so. Why because I don't look at the flag or look at they have them and seen it you know one orange wig I can you know she strikes lacy stars. Do you not understand why military people like people ought they would look at it and say. That that they're making it by a truck but they're there they're treading on the fly. Yeah I definitely understand it and you know is. Is a lot of different opinions out there and people have those rights and opinions and you know I was doing once. Dishes victim from a prior accident board when he came to. You noted news thing usage and things like this it was this. You know I guess he can attack his self went through it as far as. You know is it just was a disrespect to Penn State mean in this kind of like you know. Output it is you know he he he won control improvements. In whom a lot of things. You know did. You know book you see here you know you re on threes and the reason. You know their bodies and you know football player stick to football. These there but it. You know you they got a politicians. And Gretchen and seven no owners what to do not. I know I get it I totally understand that I'd be pissed off from London on you as well. I just an and I heard player after player saying it's not about the military I get that. It's not about the moment but the military viewing it that way noon you can understand it because they look into flight and you look at the at them and they say what the president when we're not Donald Trump has made those comments that you know he's these. He's never king was out of his own a bit crazy Condit. And acting desk that's what we've got a hold him to a standard but we do this next week will any of your players do this to Indy next week. I mean you know I think we weeping. More coats unification. You know with the players and teams that do we know of who wanted to do something as it changes. A statement you know who's a distinguished made directly to you notice in the and you know players that days like this so in just think he's obviously you know us come together. You know dual dual assault they just kind of symbolizing that you know most of produces very pretty much like you know you and your net. You know I felt like he was you know making a statement as though he's something that eases. You know controlled it pretty much everything in you know it you know we only we only got one guy then you know I mean. You're not the changes. So you think can be something again next week a statement made by the esteemed him if you guys talked about I don't know if we haven't talked about in you know I'm usher. Is the you know from looking for. We we we are working on. You know gonna work on Carolina and so you know is not so much energy put its it is you know as a lot of people make the you know and so we we've been allowed someone knows that you know we we're to play football and we understand we got a job to do we headed towards so. You know in you know but this is definitely loud things going on his word and you know he's also living as were as Wilson. It is there you know. It is their point worry suggests the about football I would I would love which he did to that point so it to you you you old enough or you didn't I guess credible enough you know modified enough time. Citizen to voice your opinion. Of them I mean I don't do too much talking you know anyway but you know guys got a pain and you know you active. So my as my opinion I can have are to voice it but it. You know I'm not want to. You know kind of put my opinions on a lot of the people you know because everybody's different and and I think that's. A lot of these Bono which we do situation everybody got different opinions so. You know so you see colleges. You've got to Kansas got let everybody have their opinion in those additional world. The spirits of loved all the players and guys that you and if you write bring everybody together but as it's somebody watching this island hernia that you see sixteen guys needling each other guys standing.
