I am all for equal rights for gays and people being who they want to be.
I am not for punishing someone who doesn't feel the same way.
Was what Jones said inappropriate? Mildly. Did it merit this degree of punishment? IMO, no.

Re: Dolphin CB suspended for tweeting "OMG, horrible" after Sam's gay kiss

I didn't see the need for suspension a warning/fine would have covered it but after last year I think the ownership wanted to been seen to do better.

I'm not as uncomfortable as some with them screening him and his partner but I agree no need for the loop. I dont want to see them but then I dont want to see a player and his girlfriend/wife either. The league would have been better letting him announce his sexuality and then ignoring the issue. Its done, we know he's gay and the players know notjing more needs said. The league want him to be a flag waiving leader and I dont think he really wants to be.

I think that is the main thing here. If it would have been another team I think the reaction would have been much less severe.

Count me in as one who got tired of seeing it played over and over again.

I also got sick of seeing Johnny Manziel, every time he wasn't drafted then when he finally was they had to show that over and over again.

Don't watch it over and over again if you're tired of seeing it. There's what... 4000 tv channels?! Get over it.

Good point. I didn't realize I had any channels other than sports-related ones!

If you wanna watch gay guys kissing, you turn to the gay channel. I dont wanna see it on my sports channel.

Quit forcing your gayness down everyone's throat.

Re: Dolphin CB suspended for tweeting "OMG, horrible" after Sam's gay kiss

We have PC'ed ourselves into stupidity.

Change the name of Wash Redskins.
Change the name of Notre Dame.
I am waiting for someone to suggest Saints is a name that has to go.

Jones is cut from preseason games and fined for saying something very mildly against Sam.
If Sam were a man, oh he is, and there was a picture of him very explicitly kissing his girlfriend/wife, same thing could said.
That is, was a bit too much.

I could care less about Sam being gay.
So what!!
I do think he is first gay and football player second. I do think he is out to promote himself and his cause.
From his moment with his boyfriend there to their trip to Las Vegas this weekend to more and more self-promotion by him and boyfriend.

Really, I hope he is a draft bust.
He is hardly on the team and he is out self-promoting himself and his cause rather than the Rams and NFL or his football career.
I feel sorry for Rams' fans.
