        Look, I think you're overreacting. I don't think he even disrespected anybody in the military. It's just the overused "going to war" metaphor that players use.

        Rolle wasn't around for Lt. Col. Gasden's speech. All our guys were very apologetic after his visit about using war analogies to describe sports. But it happens all the time.

            The guy apologized and knows he was wrong.

            Grow up and move on.

              [quote user="cincin"]Hey NimRod,

              My husband has been in the Military for 18 years and let me tell you something. There is ZERO comparisons (football to Battlefield).
              If you think there is then I think you take a trip overseas and place yourself in the middle of the fight, and then come back and let me know the comparisons.
              Catching a freaking ball my two year old can do. Taking a weapon in your hands and trying to save your life is a HERO. Not some overpaid bigmouth that gets paid for a game I can play.
              It's people like you that make me sick. You have zero respect for what these men do for our country. If it weren't for my husband and all the other service men and women you my friend would not have the opportunity to run your big mouth like that fool Antrel...[/quote]typical response. my father was a life long marine and is overseas in Afghanistan as we speak so get off your platform and realize that the nfl (football in general) uses many of the same terms as a military. if YOU ever played football you would know the similarities . getting ready to run onto the field and looking your brothers in the eyes and saying "lets go to battle" i felt like a warrior. i really dont want to have to go through the laundry list of comparisons. anyone who has played knows what i am talking about.
              Now is what rolle said ok? no not in the least but i just get tired of people getting bent outta shape whenever this happens. i remember when winslow jr was at miami and was mad and said "im a soldier" and there was a HUGE backlash over nothing.

              ps over reactions like yours make me sick and to tell me what i have respect for when you dont even know me tells me what kind of human being you are.

                  ask your husband if he thinks there are comparisons between football and the military.

                    I try not to say too much on these boards because there are a lot of people (not all) but a lot that seem to find joy in cutting others down for whatever reason.

                    (Maybe it makes them feel better about themselves.)

                    Anyway, I am both a former active duty Marine and I also played semi pro ball for a few years. I personally have no problem with what Antrel Rolle said because I am able to decipher what a person is trying to say from what they may or may not have expressed properly.
                    Now I know that there are some people out there that have NEVER done or said anything that came out wrong or that was taken out of context so none of this is directed at you.
                    I don't feel in any way that he was trying to degrade the men and women of our military or diminish what we do.
                    I think what he was trying to say was that the team goes out on that field fighting and battling for a win each week, and just because we sitting in the stands, eating hot dogs and drinking beer don't like the way things are going doesn't mean that they are not fighting for a win. It only takes one player or coach not doing their part to earn a loss.
                    He said he was sorry and thatís good enough for me. I am also sorry for making this post too long for those that complain about posts being longer then 1 sentence.

                        What I find interesting is is no one from the miltary on this board is complaining about this.Im deferring to them on this one.If they dont have a problem then I dont.</P>


                        The thing that I dont like about this is that Rolle kept pushing the issue. There effort was piss poor in that first half and they absolutely deserved what they got. Rolle is now clearly a marked man by the NY media and they will be trying to tear him down now every chance they get.<FONT color=#000000> </FONT></P>


                        For all those who love Phillip Rivers could U imagine that guy in the NY media. </P>

                          I might be able to shed some light on that for you.
                          The men and women in the military have a lot more important things to worry about than what Antrel Rolle said without thinking it through first.
                          And definitely more important then whether or not the NY media is going to have a hard ** for the guy or not. Because unlike us they don't hang on every word the NY media spews out.
                          Just a guess seeing as I'm not still active.
