J.J. Watt: (00:00)
Yeah. I mean we made a team decision to… That’s the decision that we made as a team. We’re all in this thing together and at the end of the day, we’re brothers and part of a brotherhood and we’ve had great conversations. We’ve done a lot of great things and that’s the decision that we made as a team, and the moment of unity, I personally thought was good. I mean the booing was unfortunate during that moment. I don’t fully understand that. There was no flag involved. There was nothing involved with that besides two teams coming together to show unity. But all in all, a locker room is a very diverse place. There’s people from all different backgrounds. There’s people from all different situations and I’ve been very fortunate to be part of many locker rooms throughout my life.
J.J. Watt: (00:46)
In this locker room, we’ve had more conversations than we’ve ever had about topics that may be uncomfortable to talk about, maybe people have never opened up these conversations. For me, I’ve learned a lot and I’ve been educated a lot, and it has really been a growing experience for our team. I think we’ve come a lot closer because of it. I have friendships and relationships in this locker room that’ll last a lifetime and I’m very fortunate and grateful for those and I hope to continue to cultivate them as we go forward.
