Seems Antrel Rolle made a statement on the radio comparing military folks to NFL players. Created a bit of a hub-bub. After reading the article, the whole article, considering the context, the fact that his dad is a LEO and that Antrel is a football player, not a gifted orator or writer I think what he said was not offensive. Football players are at risk in every match, as are Military people, LEO, First responders etc. This was a bit of apples and oranges but IMHO Antrel meant no disrespect. Maybe he could have made a better comparison, that's for others to decide.
