During ESPN’s broadcast of a high school football game between Alabama schools Spanish Fort and Daphne, fans of Spanish Fort were spotted waving a banner. Unfortunately for anyone watching, the banner contained a homophobic insult directed at the team colors of the school’s opponent. Making light of Daphne’s purple uniforms, Spanish Fort fans held up [...]

  • Eh, that's not homophobic. Phobia = a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it.
    Homophobia = unreasoning fear of or antipathy toward homosexuals and homosexuality.
    This is insulting, derogatory, and slightly bigoted, but it was, after all, just a joke. People need to quit being such babies.
  • I have heard such stupid things,but this one takes the cake.What i read first was bout the boy who can not wear Payton's jersey cuz it has the number 18 on it?Well,it seemd to me that the gangs are like the gays,trying and wanting to take over everything and we just sit back and let them do it.Now bout the sign made regarding the school color of their uniforms and the name of their school.The Balimore Raven colors are PURPLE and black and they are a pro.football team,for the name of their school,it was named that a very long time ago,and so it goes that kids can be cruel and putting a label on things that only causes grief for others.Gay means being happy,lezies mean nothing ,just another stupid label.So,people,we need take control and get back to normal,no gangs,have them go back in the closet,and teach our children the right things,like it was when i grew up,i am 62 and i do not regret the way the world was when i was growing up,we had morals and RESPECT.
  • Hey, I am a homophob, as those people will not leave us a lone, the attack the boy scouts, Aids, Marriage, Churches, Government. They attack when they should be in the closet.

    That is where I keep my moral assaults .
  • It amazes me that people don't think Jesus was gay. He never had a girlfriend, nowhere in the bible does it say he ever tried to get some cooter, he goes to the beach and wants 12 guys to leave with him, he knew he was going to die so he had one last dinner party and invited guys only, he wants all men to "kneel down before him", and if you say Jesus backwards it is sounds like "sausage". If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck.... you can probably make duck l'orange out of it.
  • So does that make all male teams gay because the coach is male and slaps on the butt. They all shower together, huddle together, travel together, etc? And that would be the same for all female players making them lesbians for following the same activities as above?
    Give me a break.
  • The people who questions others sexually are usually the ones hiding theirs. As you said, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...

The Wells Report was released Wednesday, and it doesn’t look good for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Bursting the NFL playoff expansion bubble

Hey, I have an idea. Let’s invite every NFL team into the playoffs! Sure. Why not? Talk about television revenue! So what if the Super Bowl falls on Mother’s Day? OK, that’s exaggeration for effect. But when Roger Goodell and the league start talking like expanding the postseason is only a matter of time, one must stop and consider if they care more about making money or...

Eric Weddle 'not coming in anytime soon,' seeks new deal

San Diego Chargers safety Eric Weddle hasn’t been shy about making his desire for a new contract known this offseason. The three-time Pro-Bowler and two-time First-Team All Pro has stayed away from team activities thus far in protest, and he’s not intending to show up for any offseason workouts until he has what he wants. “I’m not coming in anytime soon until something...

Chris Johnson: I’d be a good fit with Cowboys

Chris Johnson will turn 30 in September and was not very productive with the New York Jets last year, but the former Tennessee Titans star feels he still has plenty to offer.

Dansby on Manziel: 'He's grown up right before our eyes'

All of the reports from the Cleveland Browns camp since quarterback Johnny Manziel returned from his two-month long stay in rehab have been extremely positive relating to the young quarterback.

Stephen Strasburg is hurt again

On Tuesday night, Washington Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg left his start after just three innings thanks to a shoulder injury. Strasburg appeared to be in some discomfort starting in the first inning, but continued to pitch before leaving early. It is yet another set back for a guy who seems to always be getting injured. Strasburg is set to see a chiropractor on...

Has Blake Griffin taken the next step?

Watching Blake Griffin play basketball over the past two games really got me thinking. This was, at least in my opinion, one of the most overrated players in the NBA over the past couple years. Sure Griffin is 6’10” and 251, but too often we saw him get thrown off the low post by smaller, more physical big men. The outside game was surely there, and Griffin has always possessed...
