Packers Legend Brett Favre Gives His Opinion on Players Kneeling for the Anthem

Packers great Brett Favre has an opinion on if players should be allowed to kneel for the national anthem or not in 2020.

He doesn’t really care either way.

“I know from being in an NFL locker room for 20 years, regardless of race, background, money you grew up with, we were all brothers it didn’t matter,” Favre told USA Today on Monday.

“Guys got along great. Will that be the same (with kneeling scenario)? I don’t know. If one guy chooses to stand for his cause and another guy chooses to kneel for his cause, is one right and the other wrong? I don’t believe so. We tend to be fixed on highs.

“I don’t know what it’s like to be Black. It’s not for me to say what’s right and what’s wrong. I do know we should all be treated equal. If you can’t do that, you shouldn’t be in America.”

Favre questioned why something like kneeling for the anthem would divide a locker room, and said at the end of the day both sides are in the right.

“There’s no right answer,” the former quarterback told USA Today.

“Other than, the right answer is that we all get along. It seems like the more people try the more damage is done.”
