Nathan Phillips doesn’t feel the need to sit down and hash things out with Nick Sandmann about their Lincoln Memorial face-off — instead, he’d prefer a MUCH bigger conversation take place.
Nathan was on “TMZ Live” Wednesday, responding to the Catholic high school student’s “Today” interview … where he said he wanted a sit down with Nathan. Doesn’t sound like it’s gonna happen though, because Nathan made it clear the issues go beyond them now.
Phillips believes his incident with Sandmann — which has sparked debate, outrage and lots of hand-wringing — has elevated to such a level of importance that it should be handled by the 2 major groups represented … the Catholic church and the indigenous people.
As for President Trump siding with the kids from Covington Catholic, Nathan seems to have mixed feelings and went with the ol’ “If you can’t say something nice” adage.
Marquette King says his music career is about to take off … tellin’ TMZ Sports if he hadn’t been an amazing punter — he’d already be bigger than Chris Brown!!
The former Raiders and Broncos punter began making beats back in high school … but says tinkering with music on long flights during his NFL career made him a master musician.
So much so … Marquette says he feels like if he had picked music over punting a long time ago — he’d already be a superstar in the entertainment world.
“If I woulda started my music before I started my punting career, I woulda been Chris Brown. Chris Brown and Justin Bieber, they wouldn’t even want to see me, dawg!”
King says his music style is more house or EDM — “something you’ll hear in Vegas” — but he tells us his vocals are “legendary” too.
Marquette is still lookin’ to get back into punting in 2019 — the guy says he still LOVES the art of it — but he tells us all about how he wouldn’t mind kickin’ it with Calvin Harris in the studio in the meantime!!!
