Bob McNair: I’m Sorry For Apologizing For “Inmates” Comment
(Houston, TX) — Houston Texans owner Bob McNair is apologizing for his apology over his “inmates running the prison,” comment. McNair tells “The Wall Street Journal” he had nothing to apologize for because he was referring to NFL executives, not players. McNair says the comments were made during a meeting about the relationship between owners and executives, and swears the statement is common for people in business. McNair was roundly criticized for the statement, and apologized shortly after the information came to light last year. He also denies saying the team wouldn’t sign anyone who protested during the National Anthem. McNair says people need to have a more complete view of his community work, including paying for the funerals of the 2015 South Carolina church shooting victims. Nine black people were killed by a white gunman in the attack.
