Leroy Butler Being Honest
My father passed along a few quotes from a recent radio interview with Leroy Butler. Leroy is a brutally honest man, and he tells you exactly what he is thinking.
On Packers’ players becoming Vikings: “If you put on a Vikings jersey, I hate you.”
On the hits on Favre: ”That’s football, but there should have been a penalty on the high/low hit.”
On Favre’s legacy: “He is the best football player of his generation. There will never be another Brett Favre, but he’s not the best quarterback ever.”
You have to appreciate that kind of candor.
Leroy was a great player and leader on the field, and he continues to be that same person off the field. Want to meet him? He appears on behalf of his charity, “Leroy Butler Foundation.” The mission is “to help women who are going through breast cancer treatment to obtain the assistance they need to focus on the job of healing verses the financial impact to their families.”
Butler appears regularly in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s “5 Questions with Leroy,” and he will even come to your home and cook for you and your guests (provided, of course, you make a donation to his charity).
