Mike McDaniel’s advice after Harrison Butker gag: ‘Whatever you say, you better believe it’

Chiefs coach Andy Reid is expected to speak to reporters this week. He is likely to be asked about the recent statements made by kicker Harrison Butker, which sparked controversy and calls for his hand to be amputated and the same age as him. Cancel culture! A counter reaction on the other hand.

On Tuesday, Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel was asked about Butker’s situation. Specifically, how does McDaniel handle political issues that make their way into the locker room?

“I think you have to open players’ eyes to their platform if they’re new to the mode,” McDaniel told reporters. “I think you have to understand that what you say in public can be fragmented and stay with you forever. I really stress that whatever you say, you better believe it. You’re just trying to educate people to understand the consequences of whatever they do. They have the freedom to choose, and if they want to go In this direction, let them move forward.”

McDaniel is right. Whatever you say when expressing your political opinions, you better believe it. Because it will basically be a tattoo on your public persona.
