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.
Wise indeed sir. Personally, I have a facebook account and enjoy posting videos and one-liners whilst viewing myself as clever...

My only friends there are people I've known for nearly all of my 42 years...

People are just too damned eager to get offended. It's a big bad old world and, well...lets just say your advice is solid, but it probably falls on deaf ears.

@Crusader -- Cook your own damn dinner, pinhead.
well said. its 2012, people should except people for who they are. Has a homosexual ever done anything to any of you guys to warrant that much hate?

To me, that is utterly straight-forward. Absolutely there is news here. Vilma has a problem with homosexuals or at minimum cross-dressers and was called out on it -- by a woman -- who he promptly told to shut up. She is also a fan so, another bit of news about how Vilma values his fans. And, I don't know if anyone has noticed but, New Orleans has a substantial gay population who are just as devoted Saints fans as anyone else.

But, of course, there are plenty of guys whose masculinity is threatened by feminine type homosexuals. But, frankly, that s**t is just weak.

Either you are heterosexual man or you aren't. Insisting another human being is wrong for being themselves DOES NOT MAKE YOU MORE OF A MAN. Vilma should know that.

I love the Saints and I like Vilma as the leader of the defense. But, I don't have to love or agree with his prejudices.

"Grown men" are respectful and tolerant of differences.
dont care who hates me for saying it, but I agree with Vilma...I hope he hates cross dressing queers !!! and if you are on , I dont apoligize

Hate is an ignorant word that will get you nowhere in life.

Bro ... I think there was some sarcasm in his response ... You know the part about how people take things out of context. Happy New Year!
