After you cook your own damn dinner, sit on your stove.

Oh, and telling women that they should be in the kitchen cooking instead of expressing their opinions ......... is weak.

Also, not funny.

Nope. But, I can LOVE THE SAINTS, and even Vilma, without agreeing with his gender politics or diversity ethics.

I've seen Vilma in interviews and he seems intelligent and articulate. However, I'm not offended. I grew up in New Orleans, and the deep South, so I am used to this kind of gender bias. But, given what minority groups have been through ( including Vilma's minority group ) you would think he would be much more diversity tolerant and respectful.

But, whatever. Vilma is an exceptional football player and has done incredible, amazing things for my team. So, I have a great deal of appreciation for him for that.

I love Vilma, as our middle linebacker. I could care less what his opinions are that don't deal with football anyway. If you invite him over for dinner, then you can sit at the table and hash out differences in what you feel is right or wrong.

Dude, you made come out of lurker mode... TIP: get to know the people who post here. Although not as close a knit as is was before the SB run, still, the "old timers" don't need to put tags or smileys on their posts to know when they are making a joke or being sarcastic.

First, not a dude. Second, still not funny, I don't care how many added happy faces.

Look, I can say "Hey man, looks like you forgot your Viagra" just as easy as you guys can say "Hey babe, looks like you forgot your Midol".

But, do we really need to go there? Jus sayin'.

Social Media. This is what you open yourself up to.

There are many things that I love about the South. Etiquette was always one of them.

But, don't get me wrong, I love a beat down just as much as the rest of you.

But, let us, not-so-gentle people, focus our aggression on the proper targets: First, the Panthers, then the FailClowns.

Lots of added happy faces!!

I'm done here.

This thread is exactly why I advise my students to kill their Twitter accounts.

I don't care how "innocent" a comment might be, it will always have the opportunity to be taken out of context or manipulated to be something other than it was intended.

My suggestion to anyone considering posting a Tweet is to think about how it might play in a Grand Jury investigation.
