"When you have someone like him say some things — he has a very large following — it's kind of disappointing from my perspective," Abdullah said. "I just encourage everyone to educate yourself before you take a stance on something that you may not really know about. It's a very foreign thing for this country. A majority of this country are Christians."
"I ask them to give me their worst every day - don't hold back, don't 'brother-in-law' me, don't treat me good just because I'm on your team," Abdullah said. "If I can block those guys, I plan to be pretty good in the season."
