Reid’s response seemed to deflect the issue, stating, “Yeah, that hasn’t happened. I don’t think he (Butker) was speaking ill to women. He has his opinions, and we respect that.” The coach then shifted focus to the opinions of reporters in the room, expressing discomfort with some of their viewpoints.

Reid’s remarks highlight a delicate balancing act between respecting players’ opinions and addressing potentially harmful comments.
