Those Dominican boys think the apology for Limbaugh comes about a decade too late.

What is the appeal in twitter-following some girl because she's good looking and has an equally high-status boyfriend?

What old man doesn't have the hots for someone 1/3rd his age? It would disqualify everyone over 54.

It's not quite as creepy as it's been made out to be, but the potential was there and the message was sent that this sort of thing is okay outside of the broadcast booth.

It's not. Many women would be creeped out by that sort of attention from a dirtbag outside of a subway station. Getting it from a respected football announcer is almost as bad.

Conversation with my boss yesterday regarding this situation...

Boss: Wasn't he the biter?
Brap: I thought he was the shrimper.
Boss: Shrimper, what does that even mean?
Brap: Oooooooooooooohhhhhhklahoma where the wind goes rollin' cross the plain!  (leaves office)

Seriously, why should anyone apologize for this? He said she was a beautiful woman, and told kids to get out in the backyard and start trowing the football around. The wife and I got a chuckle out of it, it was funny, and there was nothing creepy about it.

I'm tired of the culture we've created...just because someone, somewhere might get butthurt, it's apology time. In this case, THERE WAS NOTHING TO APOLOGIZE FOR!!!!

There is nothing creepy about finding a younger person attractive. I maintain a strict policy of fapping only to women half my age or younger. If I don't have standards now, what will it be like when I'm on the far side of 30?

Amen. I've seen worse at virtually EVERY game where they focus on a player's SO.

There's a lot more people reading way too much into things that made it into a story, but such is the life of terrible bloggers.

It was a little weird, but not a big deal and Katherine Webb says she's okay with it. You know what's truly creepy and almost certainly making Katherine Webb uncomfortable? Running article after article after article about it.

twobux: Is there a chance people might be making too much of this?  What did he say that was creepy?


My problem is the implication that her value is entirely her physical appearance, along with the fact that if you are a successful enough football player an attractive woman is a reward. This type of thinking leads to situations like Steubbenville (and that is far from an isolated incident when it comes to athletics sadly).

It's not so much that he said she was attractive but what he said after.

Bullshiat.

That girl hit the marketing/publicity jackpot with that creepy old stodger. She's happy her name is in the headlines.

Settle down there, pardner.  Now, folks, in the college game, whenever That Man does something that creeps you out, just send it down to our good buddy, Jack Arute!  Gary, my man, this whole controversy reminds me of those legendary Buckeye teams with greats like Andy Katzenmoyer.  Those games were always a real barn burner!

Are you new to the human race? Jocks attract girls; it's been that way since, well, forever.

I like how she's done nothing of import or consequence besides win a beauty pageant, and people are falling over themselves to worship her.

Oh please. All he (and us) has to go on is her physical appearance. Nothing that was said implied it was all that matters when it comes to women.

along with the fact that if you are a successful enough football player an attractive woman is a reward.

If you're famous, athletic, and likely to be rich, you can get a physically attractive partner easily.

This type of thinking leads to situations like Steubbenville (and that is far from an isolated incident when it comes to athletics sadly).

Appreciating beautiful people leads to rape? OK.

Elderly people should be put on ice-floes and left to die. They need to be isolated and studied so it can be determined what nutrients they have that might be extracted for our personal use.

Your lack of empathy has me butt hurt. You will be known as a sexist and racist, nationally, from this point forward. Hater. Why do you hate women? You are trying to control her. Misogynist.

Old men watch the players in the football game and cheer and wistfully remember what it was like to be young and strong again.

Old men then watch the women that the players are banging and cheer and wish they knew what it was like to be banging that.

I don't see the problem here.

It violates the "half your age plus 7" rule. He can only say "She's pretty", any words beyond that make it creepy.

I wouldn't call it a rule, it's more of a guideline.
