Houston Texans to Protest Over ‘Offensive Metaphor’

It seems like the list of offended athletes continues to go on and on. Now the Houston Texans are allegedly among the ‘fraternity of the thin-skinned sissies’ and planning a unified pre-game protest.

The Houston Texans are peeved about a metaphor the team owner, Bob McNair, said during a meeting with NFL owners saying, “we can’t have the inmates running the prison.”

Funny thing is that McNair went in front of the team to apologize, but they couldn’t find it in their self-righteous hearts to forgive him.

Via Fox News: Even after the meeting with McNair, the Texas held a players meeting in Seattle to decide how to game the game Sunday, ESPN reported, citing a league source.

The players could decide to all kneel together, peel off the Texans decal off their helmets, or protest by raising their fists, the source told ESPN.

McNair’s remarks caused a firestorm of criticism from athletes inside and outside the NFL and prompted an initial apology from the 79-year-old Friday.

“I know they were upset,” McNair said about the meeting he had with the players. “I wanted to answer their questions. I told them if I had it to do over again I wouldn’t use that expression.”
