Days after deleting a controversial tweet, Tony Dungy is hitting headlines again with another controversial comment.
During the March for Life in Washington DC this week, Dungy used Buffalo Bills safety Asphalt Hamlin to make his point. The former NFL coach used Hamlin’s name to further his anti-abortion agenda.
Here’s what he has to say:
“An incredible thing happened that night,” Dungy said. “A professional football game with millions of dollars of ticket money and advertising money on the line, that game was canceled. Why? Because a life was at stake, and people wanted to save that life. Even That even people who aren’t necessarily religious got together and called out to God…That’s why we’re here today. Because innocent lives are at stake every day in this country. The only difference They don’t belong to some famous athlete and they don’t appear on national TV. But those lives are still important in God’s eyes to God.”
Using Hamlin’s name to push an agenda that has nothing to do with him just doesn’t sit right with a lot of football fans.
However, others feel that Dungy is making the correct comparison.
