*sigh* no sense of humor...


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


It is ok to admit that you mistakenly thought I was being serious. Youzza big boi...

Wow, all of this over a tweet. Who cares what Wallace said? The man is entitled to his opinions, whatever they may be. People need to chill out and stop being overly sensitive about tweets and online media. As long as the guy isn't getting arrested by the police, fined by the NFL, or starting problems in the lockerroom, I could care less what he does or says. All I want to see are results on the field. Receptions, yards, and touchdowns are ultimately how this man will be judged by me.

It would not be Phinfever without a good 4 page thread once in a while full of bickering and sarcastic remarks

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.


Agreed. What is wrong with saying you don't understand?

You people are pathetic who view this and believe it's deserving of all the back lash he is receiving. It's HIS twitter feed. HIS opinion, does he not have the right? He didn't call anyone out by name, said nothing vulgar. Get over it. Some people seriously need to get a darn life.

How dare anyone to MILDLY express their opinion on THEIR social networking accounts in regards to the gay issue. It's worthy of back lash and "ignorance" for someone simply not understand the mindset of being homosexual, but the same doesn't go for people who speak against it?

Only their opinion matters, the contrary does not? It's called an OPINION for a reason, look it up, and while you're at it, search of the FIRST amendment as well. Pathetic.

Right.

You defend him for simply airing his opinion, but some of us are pathetic for having "OUR OPINION" and voicing our 1st Amendment rights.

Makes complete sense. I mean I didn't personally call for his head, ask him to be cut, picket his effin' lawn ..... all I did was "mildly" voice "MY OPINION" that there are better things for a prominent athlete to tweet about than a potentially devisive sexuality issue, specifically because Mike Wallace doesn't strike me as a champion of extensive discourse with these kinds of issues.

I mean we're talking about a guy who's understanding of the subject boils down to "men should never get with other men because women are beautiful." My OPINION (granted to me by the 1st Amendment) is that he should just not put himself in the middle this kind of thing for he has nothing to gain from it and it might bring bad attention to the team. Moreover, I thought the comment could've done without the SMH for risk of antagonizing.

If you genuinely believe he doesn't understand, more power to you. I mean after all, sexuality is determined upon whether women are beautiful right?

I'm simply referring to the people who have said that he should not be able to voice his opinion on his own twitter account. I personally don't give a darn what you think of it, my response wasn't directed toward you.

I have read numerous comments around the web stating that he should legally not be able to do it, and how ignorant he is. It's ridiculous, and people need to start worrying about their darn selves instead of living vicariously through other people.

Wait you don't give a darn what I think? Was that even necessary? I don't recall cursing at you in my response. Although it's completely ironic given you responded to me. Alas, allow me to quote you:

Who else could you possibly be referring to except for those who posted on this very forum that they disagreeed with his comments?

BTW, I have yet to see one person argue that Mike Wallace is never allowed to voice his personal opinion on twitter. Please link me to anyone saying this ..... and anyone saying he's not legally allowed. This is also most definitely NOT a matter of people living vicariously through Mike Wallace. That would indicate they want to experience what he is experiencing.

It's in the massive comment section in PFT's article on this. Go check it out for yourself.
