No, you said it was a FACT that it would be awkward.
Don't try and just say it was a joke.


It is a fact that it will be awkward, at least at first. However, it's also funny, at least to me, to imagine a gay guy showering with a bunch of extremely toned athletes, so it's also a joke imo. You really have no sense of humor, do you?

I mean, take Stephen Colbert for instance. He's playing a political satire version of himself, and yet he does so whilst mostly speaking in facts. Does that mean he isn't joking 99% of the time? His show is comedy. My comment, while true, was a form of comedy, and you and that politically correct stick up your anus just can't seem to comprehend it.

It's okay, over 99% of the entire population of the earth is almost completely retarded, so you're not alone.

Another quasi/pseudo analogy for an example of how something can be two things at once, is how I can both feel saddened by your stupidity, and at the same time think it is absolutely hilarious.

Have fun being you.

nobody asked him to give up his dream. and to tell you the truth....! Nobody cares if he is gay or if he is straight! Or if he is bisexual or even Asexual. football has nothing to do with sexual orientation. and this has nothing to do with his ability. anybody with half a brain can see behind this man's motive. if he didn't get drafted he was going to Sue the NFL. His attorney has pretty much said as much. this is completely a political move. interestingly enough it seems to me that the gay community which advocates for tolerance acceptance. Is neither! At least not for anybody or group that may have different views. Either we like what they tell and embrace and cherish there lifestyles or we are bigots or homophobes. l7909758]Darth_Prime[/post]

If he didn't get drafted he would have gotten 4 offers from other teams to be an Undrafted Free Agent.

you claim these things as fact that he is going to sue, or this is a political move. maybe he just wants to play football, maybe he believes he deserves to be drafted, if you look at his statistics and his measurable he was equal to people that were drafted much higher.

Telly can do satire easy but over the net in forums it doesn't come across like that.
Also and boo calling others retarded. I read that after my first line...I think you are trying to wriggle your way out of what you said..
BOOO again.

Nope, I'd say it again 1000 times over actually. And the retarded bit is true btw. It's just based on the fact that I consider myself retarded, and my IQ is higher than 99.8ish% of everyone in the 1st world (and that's on the low end. As in, if I score bad). So if I consider myself stupid, what does that say about the other 99% or more? I realize IQ isn't everything in terms of intelligence, but it really helps with comprehension and with the not so common sense thing that almost every singe person I meet (or talk to on the internet) seems to get wrong.

So yes, the odds are not in his favor that he's a genius. Sorry for telling the truth. I know, it hurts. Waaaaaahhhh

Woah!
Hope you don't fall off that horse.
And if everyone's common sense, is different then yours, but common to each other.... what does that tell you?

Colbert is much more then just a comedy.
Yes he "jokes" but he does that with the notion that those jokes carry a truth behind them.
If he makes a joke about how gays are bad, he is joking at the fact that there is still people that think that.
If he makes a joke about a gay guy in the shower, he is joking at the fact there is still people that think that is an issue.
You joke was not the same thing

Don't give a # pal about your so called intelligence...intelligent people can still be #ing dicks.


Well I know that you don't care. People are very predictable unfortunately. Can you guess that I don't care what you think about my opinion? I know, shocker.

And yes, of course intelligent people can be dicks. Why do you think that is? I posted on another thread all the official IQ's of all the Nazi's taken during the Nuremberg trials, and I think the average was 128 or something along those lines. Quite a few, and even the most ruthless ones had IQ's in the mid 140's. The lowest, by quite a large margin, was 108. Those were just the men who got caught, or turned themselves in.

So yeah, intelligent people can be giant dicks (pun intended). Maybe it's because we're fed up with all you idiots? And yes, I'm sure there are quite a few nice intelligent people out there too, or maybe their just hiding their a**hole side and secretly laughing to themselves? It's harder to do than you might think, because I love to let the person know when they're being an idiot. From my personal experience, they never seem to fully get the message. Like I said before, people will see what they want to see.

Well, if my IQ is higher than 99.8 or more % of people, then it tells me most likely they're incorrect. Not saying they are, because you didn't mention a particular issue, but I'm just playing the odds.

Ringing any bells yet? No? I'm not surprised.

So your common sense differs then the other 99.8% of people?



.... not sure that is how common sense works.

With every post you make yourself look more and more idiotic, and it's making it very easy for me to form a rebuttal. Thank you for not paying attention to what I type. Except, of course, for the things you want to hear, but as we all know, I don't even have to type that, you'll just hear it anyway.

Here's what I wrote, and I'll even highlight the important bits this time to make it easier for you.


but it really helps with comprehension and with the NOT SO common sense thing


The not so common sense. Common sense is a phrase used often to infer something is, or should be, obvious based on a simple perception of facts given in a certain situation. I used it as "not so" because common sense is not so common.

I can't believe I actually had to explain that.

So he came out this year knowing he didn't do well at the combine? I'm not bashing but I think he played "The Card." I could honestly care less if any athlete is gay as long as they can contribute to their team and help them win. I wish him the best, and hope he has a great career in the NFL.
He came out before the combine.

Sorry, no dice.

7%! ..........An estimated 7% of the population considers themselves LGBT....... This is nothing more than a distraction. It is the progressive media and administration trying to get everybody to focus on something other than what they are doing. the same that they did with the whole Trayvon Martin. Trying to make zimmerman out to be a white Racist ( even though he was a mexican american). While at the same time not getting any media coverage to this www.theblaze.com... rget/ because it doesn't fit into their agenda that whites are the only perpetrators of racism and hatred. evil is evil no matter who you are or the color of your skin. wake up and stop buying into all this propaganda and if you look a little deeper than on the surface it is propaganda. it is nothing more than the old divide and conquer strategy that has been used since the beginning of time "Leaders who use a divide and conquer strategy may encourage or foster feuds between smaller powers. This kind of political maneuvering requires a great understanding of the people who are being manipulated.m.wisegeek.org...: 7918465230.

white, black, gay, lesbian, it doesn't matter what you are we need to focus on what's really happening. we're losing our country one little bit at a time. we need to stop letting them make everything out to be about our differences. the way I see it we are Americans first . bound by the blood of our forefathers. brothers and sisters if you will. whose family is being torn apart at the seams. whose entire house is on fire. a burning inferno about to collapse. and we're arguing about who's night it is to do the dishes.

As happy as I am to see him break the barrier, I feel pretty bad for this kid.

Taking only football measurable into account, he is a fringe talent, at best.

Yes, he has tremendous drive that earned him conference defensive player of the year awards, but by nfl standards he is too small to be a DE and too slow to be a LB.

There is a chance a guy like him makes it in the nfl, but there is a very good chance he wont, too.

All this media hype, in my opinion, is setting the poor kid up for failure.

Actually we're human beings first, Americans second. Also, I can't tell what was directed at me, the link, or the whole thing? Because I'm agreeing with the majority of what you're saying.

Special teams, i bet he makes a career there. If you have a high motor and a chip on your shoulder then you usually can last on special teams.

And Greg williams is a master at the blitz. I bet he finds some sub packages for this guy.

i'm glad they aired that on the Telly, other players have been shown on camera kissing their Girlfriends with no backlash so this should be received the same

I could certainly see him being a very good special teams player. I just dont think he has the size to be a legitimate pass rusher in the nfl.

Either way, I wish nothing but the best for the kid.
