The Bills’ coach endorsing Trump may be interesting news but the real story is how it is being handled.
The ownership doesn’t seem to care, which is good for Rex Ryan.
More importantly the players don’t care, which is good for all of us.
Defensive end Jarius Wynn told us, “[Coach] is a grown man. If he wants to go see him and speak at his rally, that’s fine with me. I don’t see a problem with that. It’s no big deal.”
“[Ryan is] a great man and we respect him no matter what he does outside of football. At the end of the day, he’s here to help us win games, so his views and who he votes for doesn’t matter. We’re here to play football.”
It’s not very often we see someone do something controversial without seeing someone attempting to rip him, his employer or anyone tangentially associated with him apart. Keep in mind, the media tried to find a story here and find some people associated with the Bills who had a big problem with it.
Maybe other NFL players will complain?
Maybe this is a turning point? Doubtful.
