I have to agree with Birt on this. You don't have to like a guys opinion but you do have to respect his right to express it. That IS what free speech is all about. I did find it interesting that they were able to suspend him for it.Originally Posted by birtikidis
Now, don't get me wrong. I don't like what he said and think he's all the more ignorant for saying it but if you don't like what he said then ignore it and if you have kids then teach them why you think it is wrong.
I also agree with Birt on how we go over the top on certain issues and others that you would think would be more important we sweep under the rug. For example, we vilefy a guy for his cruelty towards dogs (Michael Vick) yet nobody says a word about a guy constantly knocking his wife around (Warren Moon) and still considers him a role model. The Leonard Little situation is another good example. I mean the guy killed a PERSON yet nobody picketts the games he plays in. Are dogs more important than people?
What you can take about Larry Johnsons statements is he doesn't like gays. Big deal ... I don't like Ravens.
