Former All-Pro Fred Dryer: NFL Now 'Government Football'
« on: March 03, 2014, 03:03:14 PM »

Fred Dryer, the ex-NFL and All-Pro great who later appeared on popular shows like Hunter and Cheers, said that the NFL has now become an activist league that is all about the politics.

Appearing on the Mark Levin Show on Friday, Dryer spoke about reports that the NFL is thinking about penalizing players 15 yards for using the N-word, and he said that the NFL just wants to drag fans out of their armchairs and "hit you with all these sensibilities" that's "all just nothing but the politics."

"It's government football now," he said.

Dryer said that he played before the ESPN era and the "media explosion," and he emphasized that it "was a better time."

"There were gay players then. They were using the 'N-word' then, they’re using it now," he said. "There’re gay players now, nothing’s changed except the politics.”

I have always loved Fred Dryer.

I hope more retired players speak out. They have nothing to lose.
