LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:


By Kody Fairfield

Current Denver Broncos’ General Manager and Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway has recently come under fire on social media following a letter he sent on team stationery urging the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee to approve Colorado native Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, reports SportingNews.com.

The Colorado Springs Gazette tweeted a copy of the letter in which Elway state, “”Neil is a big Denver Broncos fan, and I can tell you I’m a big fan of his.”

The letter, combined with the use of the teams logo, unleashed a storm of tweets which were full of snark, passive aggression, and disdain for the NFL legend.

There were a few people who came to Elway’s blind side.

In his statement,  Elway emphasizes that Gorsuch is seen as a Western voice, as it relates to gun rights and public lands issues on a court dominated by Eastern judges and currently split between so-called liberals and conservatives, reports SportingNews.

SportingNews reported that the Bronco’s organization did make an official statement on the matter explaining that Elway’s comments were “independent of the team.”
