This was one of the weakest moves Mcnair has ever made. I wouldn't call Mcnair classy after this. These are just some low paid security guards who are working for the worst team in the league and wanted a picture with a legend at QB. Big deal. If the Texans won that game this would have never happened. Bob and Smith got butt hurt and took it out on some low paid security guards. Really pathetic.

It's a reach saying McNair had anything to do with this... c'mon man, you're better than this

I read the title which should be what the article is about unless someone posted a misleading title. Thanks for the snarky little response though.

A supervisor from the company that employed the guard (which had a policy against approaching players) saw him taking pictures with Brady and walked up on the spot and fired him. McNair was not involved.

But come on man, to fire the guys for a picture? I could see if Brady was irritated or something or if they became a big distraction. I just see this as a few security guards wanting to shake the guy's hand and wanting to get a quick picture with a legendary QB.

I didn't say it was right. Just providing the background.

I can understand why they have the policy but the discretion which was heavy handed was the supervisor on the spot.

I can understand the policy as well, but I just think a warning or a write up would be a better result. I could see if they were doing this every week, but they probably just got caught up in the moment since it was Brady. I could see guys doing that back in the day for Montana or Unites as well.

No **** sherlock. We were sort of discussing this in context of the situation. It sounds pretty obvious that you would have fired these guys and been pretty happy about it though. YOu seem to be looking for a battle with me over this. Bored much?
