    Antrel Rolle"s disrespect of American service members

    How dare Andre Rolle compare himself to a US service member? All he has done all his life is run up and down a field chasing a football. Thousands of brave men and women put their lives at risk in order for Rolle to be able to live his life of privilege and luxury. Rolle is an entertainer, nothing more. His job is to win football games. When he does, he gets cheered; when he doesn't, he gets booed. It is just that simple. He needs to get over his bloated ego and speak only when he has something worthwhile to say. He plays in the National Football League, those who serve their country in military uniform do so in an entirely different league altogether.

    Re: Antrel Rolle"s disrespect of American service members

    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...

    So what? Get a life, and stop complaining about stupid comments made by people. People are so effing sensitive in this country.

    Go Away. Get over it. Glad you took the time to sign up here, just to post this though, good job, now go get a life.


    Rolle is obv not used to the NY media, he will learn how to better deal with these jack***es by next year, I hope.

    Also like he mentiones in his apology, several people have been paralized playing this "game" so there is a risk at stake. There are more than "entertainers", get a clue.

    Probably the most ignorant post ever on this board. You sir are comparing a game where 3 men have been paralyzed, to the military where millions have lost their lives defending your country. Crawl away quickly. Please crawl away.

    Also, if it weren't for our military, you wouldn't even be able to post your nonsense. NIMROD

    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.

    Re: Antrel Rolle"s disrespect of American service members

    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.
