Flair Speech Mentioned on "NFL Gameday"

The Ric Flair motivational speech that he gave to the San Francisco 49ers prior to their playoff game against The Green Bay Packers last week was discussed during "NFL Gameday" this morning on the NFL Network.

The hosts of the show, including former coach Steve Mariucci talked how good Flair looked, and then discussed the impact that a game day motivational speech has on the players. Most of the hosts downplayed the impact a speech has on the players, and it should be noted that the controversy surrounding Flair being from Carolina was not brought up in the segment. Nor was it brought up that Flair is unable to enter North Carolina due to an outstanding warrant for his arrest.
