More Suspensions Coming

Roger Goodell has ruled the NFL with an iron fist during his opening months as NFL commissioner, recently handing down suspensions the way PacMan Jones tosses dollar bills at a strip club. And there are more suspensions to come. But there is one person who has escaped Goodell’s wrath, but probably deserves to be suspended more than anybody for damaging the image of the league.

That man is Tony Dungy.

Dungy deserves a lengthy suspension for his thoughts on discrimination, mainly against homosexuals who are denied basic human rights. Funny, people wonder if a gay athlete could ever come out of the closet during his playing career. But it's not so much the players, but coaches such as Dungy who make that scenario unlikely.

Players such as Jones, Mike Vick and Tank Johnson have fed the NFL’s renegade image, it's the actions of Dungy that are much more damaging. The players might possibly be good guys who have made poor choices, but Dungy has made a conscious decision to segregate homosexuals. What's worse is that Dungy believes that he is a good guy.

"We're not anti- anything else. We're not trying to downgrade anyone else. But we're trying to promote the family -- family values the Lord's way," Dungy said in March.

You mean Esera Tuaolo doesn’t deserve to raise his family and his children because Dungy doesn’t believe in homosexuality? Forget all of the trouble with drunk driving, speeding and guns, this seems much more disgusting. And if Goodell really wants to clean up the image of the league he will suspend Dungy.

If you ask John Amechi, Jerry Sloan's no fan of gay folks, either. (Shocker there.)

THN should have a Q&A with Dungy. Shouldn't be hard, seeing he drops in here quite frequently.

Tony Dungy said...

This is a high-tech lynching. Let him who is without sin cast the first stone. Well, that means none of you, because you're all sodomites. It is hard for thee to kick against these pricks. They that sow in tears shall reap joy.

Diane said...

Right on. Esera Tuaolo and his children were also featured in the HBO special about the Gay Families Cruise. Many of these gay families include alot of hard to adopt kids . . . and all of them spend more time raising their children than Tony Dungy ever did. If Dungy displayed a little more of that family first attitude, he might have noticed how troubled his son was. Instead, his family lives in Florida, a state that won't even allow gay couples to serve as foster parents.

Tony has a son who plays WR for a private school here in Indianapolis.

Right on, Diane. You go girl! Esera Tuaolo, Tom Brady, Billy Bean, Sheryl Swoopes, Glen Burke, and Juwanna Mann got their family freak on my Gay Family Cruise last summer. All that quality family time we spent together playing sharades, leap frog, greasy limbo, operator, scrub the mitt and kick the can are times i'll never forget. Our week-long motto was "We're here, we're queer, and looking for Rosey Grier."

Tim Hardaway got suspended from all-star weekend by David Stern for saying he hated gay people... so there's a good precedent.

I wonder if his son was gay.

Homosexuality is anarchy

James was not gay. He knew I did not approve of homos hanging around.

NFL Adam said...

We'll never know for sure about James, but the evidence is sure starting to point in that direction.

I am tired of people like Tony Dungy being persecuted because they are true Christians. Why, hating queers is paramount to Christian theology. Why do you think Jesus talked about so much in the Gospels? Just let me break out the good book and give you heathens a little churchin'! Look... here in Luke... oh wait... he's actually ridiculing the falsely pious in that passage. O.K., Matthew then... uh, well, he's going after religious hypocrites again. Hmmmm. Here we go... damn, that's some weird stuff about gaining the world and losing your soul. Uh, then there's something about peacemakers being the children of God... DAMN IT! I've got some crazy librul commie Bible! They took out all the parts about Jesus hating queers and calling for more defense spending and tax breaks for rich folks. Typical librul p.c. horsecrap. I'll bet Jerry Falwell's bible has all the good stuff in it! My verification word is "cqgvxyy" which, I have on good authority, is what Jerry exclaimed just as he pocketed that last widow's pension check and his heart gave way.

Dungy is a good man and a true role model in the NFL. He's a top-notch coach and a topper-notch man.

Fletch said...

Well done, Hatriot.

James said...

Give the Hatriot a full-time job here.

NFL Adam said...

I love the Comment Monkees.

And a flaming batshit fundiot hate monkey, to boot.

Have you ever noticed that the voices that are always screaming the loudest for tolerance are the most intolerant?

"Have you ever noticed that the voices that are always screaming the loudest for tolerance are the most intolerant?"

More intolerant than who? Dick Cheney who compares anyone who voices opposition to the war to a Nazi Sympathizer?

The Hatriot's Unsaved Twin Brother said...

You know "Richard", explaining sophistry to some batshit, self-righteous fundiot is like explaining the infield fly rule to a UFC fan. Let me try: Criticizing someone for discriminating against others (in this case gays) who have done the discriminator no harm is not intolerance. In fact, it is the defense of tolerance. Using fundiot's grammar school logic, the Reverend King was "intolerant" of Southern policemen who wanted to loose attack dogs on women and children. Look, you are free to believe in a hateful, fear-based, and biblically illiterate view of God. Once you act upon it and try to punish your fellow Americans for whom they choose to love, don't be surprised when you're treated with contempt by those with greater intellectual and moral accumen. BTW, my verification word is "mvhaqzjd" which is the name of the driver of the WAAAAHbumlance who's coming for your pitch-but-can't-catch ass right now.
