Giants safety Antrel Rolle compares booing NFL players to booing soldiers coming home from Iraq



Antrel Rolle does not get it. Tuesday morning on his paid weekly radio spot on WFAN, the Giants safety said he was ticked off at fans who had booed the team. Thursday, he defended his stance by comparing himself and his Giants teammates to the troops coming home from Iraq.

"They want to make it that guys paid this much money for a ticket, yeah, I understand that, I understand completely. We risk ourselves out there on the field each and every day also. When soldiers come home from Iraq you don't boo them. I look at it the same way. I take my job seriously," Rolle said.

"I appreciate my fans, I appreciate them to the fullest, I am gonna continue to play for them as I always have. I am going to continue to be the best guy I could be for them. Nothing's gonna change," Rolle continued. There's not a real big deal. They asked a question. I gave them an answer."

Still, he says he is unapologetic about being a "bigmouth," and his willingness to say whatever is on his mind.

"Blame my mom, I am not a politically correct guy. Not my father, it's my mother's fault. You ask me a question I am going to give you an answer, an honest answer," Rolle said. "My coaches ask me, my girlfriend asks me, I am going to give them an honest answer, I don't sugarcoat anything."

According to Rolle, who is in the first year of a five-year $37 million contract with the Giants, he is speaking up for his teammates, especially the ones that do not feel so free to speak their minds.

"I am not taking it personal against me. When I speak I am not speaking on behalf of Antrelle Rolle, I speak on behalf of the New York Giants. I know for a fact I am not the only guy that feels that way," Rolle said. "But once again, me as the big mouth, I am the one that says something. They asked me a question. I didn't volunteer this information. I didn't go out and say the fans booed us. They asked me a question, do you like the fans booing and I said no."

Rolle does not speak for all his teammates, however.

Defensive end Osi Umenyiora was so ticked off at the defensive effort in the first half of Sunday's game that he spoke up at halftime, something he's never done before. He understood the fans frustration.

"I am used to it. That's just the way the fans are. They have every right to be that way, they are paying $120 a ticket to come watch us play you can't go out and stink it up like that," Umenyiora said. "Especially in New York. As long as they are coming to watch us play, they can boo, they can do whatever they want to do. That's well within their rights to do that."

How do you compare dodging tackles or making tackles, to dodging bullets, explosions, landmines, etc...


That's disrespectful as hell. Take him to Afghanistan, stick a helmet on him, give him a rifle, and a backpack full of goods and send him off...lets see if that dont change his tune.


Fuckin idiot.

I dont think he meant anything by it, but why do athletes feel the need to compare themselves to war?

I get what he's saying, because I played football, but you cannot be that big of an idiot and demand to be given respect like soliders are given...they're nowhere near the same.
