Maybe people are taking the "I don't understand it" too literal. Just like someone else said earlier in the thread that they do not understand Jets fans.

Laugh all you want Rich. My comments about Miami Dolphins football are not even remotely close to the level of addressing human sexuality, Mr. "I have never poked a dude before". It's clear where the tact doesn't exist here that's for sure.

Wow spark the hypocrite again. You sit here and go back and forth with people about personal attacks all day long but you're one of the worst offenders. Just to make things fair seeing how as you report everyone and their mother, I'll be reporting you for your comment. Good day chief.


Sorry, you lost me there chief.

I didn't personally attack or insult you in my post... AT ALL.

Yes I know. You always feel compelled to deliver the message in ironic fashion.

Right, because it is OK for you to do it and then criticize someone else for doing it...

Quote:

So you'd probably be OK if I had said I poked a chick, but if I said I have never poked a dude, somehow that is an ignorant, insensitive or homophobic comment?

Nah... just a double standard by the PC Police.

Maybe I don't care if someone is gay or straight or black or white or purple, I treat them all the same way, I'm not going to show any more sensitivity to one than to another...

That is called hyperbole by Mr. PZ.

Post Re: Mike Wallace with a stupid homophobic tweet
Long time since I posted.

Rich is right in that we don't really 100% know what he meant to say.

However, calling his comments stupid is correct. Wallace had to read the story, then make a deliberate decision to wade into this story himself. His comment wasn't one of support, like many athletes today. He should have known the reaction to his comment and wisely avoided it. Sadly he didn't. I don't want to assign other motives than that.

PS: I'd always thought "shaking one's head" is a sign of disapproval or disagreement not a lack of understanding (for what it is worth.)

Oh, and Chris Broussard from ESPN said something much more offensive than Wallace. I'd much rather go after him with pitchforks. :yay:

I don't see what is stupid about it. I think the problem is we're too politically correct in this society.

He gave his opinion, from his point of view, which is the only point of view he can have. He simply stated he doesn't understand something.

Sorry, but I agree with him. I don't understand homosexuality either.

That doesn't mean I wouldn't hire a gay person or have one as a friend, neighbor etc.

It just means I don't understand one dude being with another. And quite frankly, I don't have to understand it.

Nailed it. No Pun Intended

UPDATE: The Dolphins released a statement regarding Wallace's tweet:

"Mike Wallace has apologized for his comments, and we have addressed the matter with him. Mike's comments do not reflect the views of the Miami Dolphins. We believe in a culture of inclusiveness and respect, and any statements to the contrary are in no way acceptable to our organization. We will address the entire team about our policy of inclusion and make sure they all understand the importance of respecting individual choices."

Lol. What did you end up with?

shake your head
to move your head from side to side as a way of saying no or to express disagreement

to shake one's head 1.To move one's head from side to side, in a repeated swiveling motion from the neck, to indicate disagreement, negation, disbelief, or dismay.

turn one’s head from side to side in order to indicate refusal, denial, disapproval, or incredulity

Express disapproval, dissent, or doubt, as in That announcement had us shaking our heads in dismay . This expression, which can be used both literally (for moving one's head from side to side) and figuratively, dates from about 1300.


"doubt" "Incredulity" "disbelief" at least skirt the "not understanding" definition.

Here is the definition of Rich:

Possessing or demonstrating wit in speech or writing; very clever and humorous.
2. Characterized by or having the nature of wit; funny or jocular: a witty saying.
3. Quick to discern and express amusing insights or relationships.
4. Entertainingly and strikingly clever or original in concept, design, or performance:

I think this about sums it all up!!! :yay:

Rich, you are another version of Chael Sonnen when he gets going. In fact, watch the You Tube Video "One Hour of Epicness" You don't even have to like him to appreciate his quick witty comments. He is genuinely a funny smart guy that gets under people's skin, but to me in a way where he says things to push buttons and challenge a response. You can either roll it off all in good humor or you can get all pissy about it and take it personal OR just simply speak back in an intelligent manner. He will just tear up the ignorant folks!

I love Chael Sonnen! I might be the only one that does.

Too bad he isn't a better striker... and that he got sloppy at the end of the first Anderson Silva fight.

The cool thing about Chael is that he'll put on a show, say what's on his mind, but when the fight is over he'll shake hands and invite his opponent over to BBQ.

That's me in a nutshell. Except I invite people over so they can make me BBQ.

Post Re: Mike Wallace with a stupid homophobic tweet
Isn't it amazing how polarizing this issue is. And truthfully, it's not even the homosexuality that is polarizing; it's how we communicate about it. Anything that is potentially offensive to the minority is taboo, no matter the intent. And in some cases, the reverse is true; what could be offensive to the majority is lauded.

My take on it is this. Wallace not getting the idea of a dude lusting after another dude is fine. Why can't he express this incredulity? The problem is the use of "SMH" which is being construed by some to be disapproval. I understand that position, but don't happen to agree that he was actually trying to express that sentiment. I think we are ridiculously over-sensitive about some things as a culture, and this is one of them. And race. (Of course, if you hate on the RIGHT people according the PC Police, than you are truly enlightened.)

I have had friends of all colors, religions, and sexual orientation, and in most cases we can joke about our differences and get along just fine. We just need to lighten up.

That said, Wallace is a big boy, he should have anticipated how this would go over and save himself the trouble and embarrassment and not tweeted it in the first place. Not that he didn't have the right to, it was just poor judgment considering how hyper-sensitive this issue is right now.

I'm about the most accepting straight person I know on LGBT issues and quite frankly this is a nothing issue.
His tweet did not display anything beyond a lack of "complete" acceptance.
Complete acceptance would be nice but it's an opinion and everyone is allowed their own.
What he tweeted was far from offensive

Ha! Ha! Rich, so you don't pat someone else's wife's butt and ask for her to cook you a steak??

Chael Sonnen is definitely one of my very favorite and yes, I definitely wish he was a better striker.

I wanted him at the very least to give Bones Jones a Rocky like effort and make that a 5 round fight.

Chael beat on Brian Stann and Bisbing, which were nice wins, but going against the best pound for pound guys, it has been tough on him. I still get bummed over his first fight against Silva and they way he dominated then lost.

One of the funniest Chael Sonnen comments:

When I was a little kid, I'd go outside with my friends and we'd talk about the latest technology, in medicine, gaming, and American ingenuity, and Anderson Silva and the Brazilian kids are sitting outside playing in the mud."

Two things:

1.) Anytime your statement involves the words "I'm not (blank) but..." or "No disrespect but...", we all know your intent, and you are a clown

2.) Rich...Gestapo? Really? C'mon man. Let's tone down the hyperbole a bit, shall we?

A sense of humor implies that something is funny. In what way is comparing our organization to Nazi secret police funny?
