DaveC I can understand your concerns. But, the last person who would be guilty of these things is Hewson. Granted, his humor isn't PC, but he certainly isn't being malicious. Just having a little light hearted fun. I assure you that his wife doesn't wear a bra and that his dog is gay.

I'm surprised David Beckham didn't kick any of the Panthers.

Right, I'm not trying to offend.

Never questioned the dog, but she may in fact be a lesbian (Lescanine?)

And as for my original post, there is an honest question buried in there...why was Beckham supposedly so bothered by the supposed homophobic slurs? It reminds me a tad of the recent Bill Kennedy story, who came out after asshat Rondo directed slurs his way.

And I think Dave's point is that you're trying to insult Beckham by comparing him to a woman.

The giants should sit him regardless. He needs to learn a lesson that it is absolutely not okay to act like a petulant child just because you felt provoked. They're just going to keep doing it over and over again.

Because Coughlin's on the hot seat. Andy Reid let DeSean and Shady get away with pretty much anything they wanted to in his last few years because he too was on the hot seat.

OBJ's suspension upheld. Well, at least Norman was fined 26K.

And here's an honest question for you...why the fuck does it matter? He's not allowed to be upset if someone calls him a fag and he's straight? If he gets really pissed off he must like men? Who gives a shit anyways? I don't understand what you're getting at here at all.

Regardless of my sexual orientation/gender/whatever, I too would be very upset if someone called me a sexual slur while I was trying to do my job.

Exactly correct. I'm not trying to white knight here, but not having to wade through shit like this is exactly the reason I come here to read NFL discussion instead of choosing any of the 100,000 other, more active message boards. It's just not necessary.

That's funny, because I'm gay and I didn't pick up even a hint of homophobia.

Adele writes incredibly sappy music filled with emotion. It's humorous, to me, go watch OBJ on the field act like a fool, enraged with every emotion. Dancing like a clown when he scores a touchdown.

I get that, and I didn't see it that way at all. His first name is similar to Adele, and his behavior was as emotionally charged (in the wrong way) as Adele's music is (in the right way).

That was the only thing I thought he was referring to.
