While trying to recover from a knee injury and arguing with his coach about playing time in the preseason, RG3 still found the time to let everyone know he's cool with gay players in the NFL
It's shocking that he answered a question asked of him in an interview.

/Imagine the outrage if he said "no comment".

Griffin, who starred as rookie for the Redskins last season and is recovering from offseason knee surgery, added, "My view on it is, yes, I am a Christian, but to each his own. You do what you want to do. If some Christians want to look at being gay as a sin, then thinking about other women, committing adultery-or any of those other sins that are in the Bible-those are sins, too. And God looks at all of us the same way,"

More Christians should follow this lead.

RG3 seems like a stand-up guy.

I was more amused by this: Chris Culliver said "I don't do the gay guys man. I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do. Can't be with that sweet stuff. Nah ... can't be ... in the locker room man. Nah."

Methinks he doth protest too much.

well, now that they have RG3's blessing, I guess all that's left is for Tebow is give the thumbs up and they can start the gay orgy on the 50-yard line.

Even more impressive considering he went to a Baptist school - although I think he ended up at Baylor because a coach bailed on his first choice and Baylor has a very good track program.

He normally only does press conferences on Mondays. He did a little impromptu thing yesterday, but he usually only does them once a week.

His take seems pretty reasonable, and more in line with Jeebus than 99% of the evangelicals out there.

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver said, "I don't do the gay guys man. I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do. Can't be with that sweet stuff. Nah ... can't be ... in the locker room man. Nah."

The 49ers were not pleased with Culliver's comments and he issued an apology.


That last comment made me laugh

Griffin concluded his remarks by saying "bigotry is a terrible thing that needs to be eradicated in America.  I pray that I can help bring people together and never be divisive or do anything that supports racism or intolerance."  Then he put on his Redskins helmet.

HE'S ON THE DOWWWWN LOW!!!

Kerry Rhodes is out of a job last i checked.  one of the articles about a month ago came out and said, "teams may be wary of the potential backlash, after pictures surfaced shwoing Rhodes embracing a man Rhodes described as a 'business associate'...."

What was odd about Rhdoes' response (side note:  KERRY.  COME OUT, MAN.  COME ON.  NO1CURR.) was how.....odd, it was.  it was like, "pictures were released which were taken in a trusting environment by a business associate, taken in an environment of discretion and confidentiality...."  he wasn't sayign "THOSE PICTURES ARE FAKE!", or, "THAT AIN'T ME", he kinda sidestepped it.  but his reasoning itself kinda hinted that ther was something there.  "trusting environment" or whatever he said.  he meant he thought he could trust the man in his arms in a pool?

This made me laugh pretty hard, and then I realized that there's an unfortunately likelihood of this occurring.  Playing on Cat Litter Field for Shanny the Crippler is not an ideal career situation from an injury standpoint.  I suppose you could put him behind the Bears O-line and make Barry Switzer the OC if you want to finish the job in one season.

Wow, amazing that he found the time between sitting around waiting for PT sessions and talking on the phone with his coach once every couple of days. How DO these multimillionaires DO it?

I like his statement, but subby really needs to notch down the hero worship to about 1% of what it currently is, it's not like he drug himself down the block over broken glass with shattered legs and a sprained wrist to make it to this interview...

I don't think he's been that good at cock-texting from the get-go. I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL. I think the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback send cock shots well. They're interested in black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well. I think there's a little hope invested in Bobby Three Sticks and he got a lot of credit for the performance of his cock shots that he really didn't deserve. The smartphone carried his cock shots.

I think part of the reason it didn't come out was because she wanted some absurd amount of money for them. Busted Coverage offered $500 for them and she turned them down. I think some people believe they'd get a million bucks for a shot of RG3's bobby-one-stick. Anyway she didn't press it further but they did have some evidence for there being some sort of relationship there.

Maybe it is good for Dan Snyder.   This instantly makes 1 million gay lovers go out and buy a $300 RG3 redskins jersey.

It's just good business.

I have to disagree here. I liked Griffith coming out of college and was glad to see him start well. However, the complete media fellatio of this guy is getting VERY old. If you listen to ESPN or NFL Network long enough you'll start to think he cured cancer. Just chill on the Griffith hype guys or some of us will look forward to his downfall.

Washington has been so starved for a QB with half a brain that RGIII is a God to their sports fans.  It may be the only time I've seen the fans turn on a coach for playing the QB when he was obviously hurt; usually 'Skins fans are all about "toughness" on the field, etc.

Meh. People said the same bullshiat last off-season.

"OMG! He has a nickname and commercials and he's never played a game!"
"Oh noes! He's on another magazine cover!"

All he did was go out and win rookie of the year while carrying my Redskins to the NFC East title. This is all the biatching of bored people who have nothing better to talk about. The first time he throws a touchdown or scambles for 40 yards, you and everyone like you will be cheering and acting like you were never critical.

If he does, it likely wobbles in the air, goes about 6 yards, and isn't caught by anybody.

Joe Theisman is doing prostate pill commercials now, so RG3 at least has that in his future.

This is news because RGIII came out as being a republican and the media is shocked that he is not a homophobe. In fact they probably asked hoping he'd say something more like what Culliver said.

I was more amused by this: Chris Culliver said "I don't do the gay guys man. I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do. Can't be with that sweet stuff. Nah ... can't be ... in the locker room man. Nah."

Methinks he doth protest too much.


Agreed.  I came here to comment about that.

So he doesn't do the gay guys, so he must do the "straight" guys?

You do know that there's a large segment of NFL fandom that makes arbitrary decisions on what teams they root for.

I have plenty of friends that wear jerseys of multiple players, regardless of team. Plenty of fans that jump on player bandwagons and not teams.

I always find myself thinking the same thing during that commercial. Theissman says at any stadium he'd go to "the first bathroom he could find," and I think to myself, Well, yeah, Joe most folks do go to the first bathroom they can find when they have to piss. Very few people see a bathroom and say to themselves, "Well, I have to go, but let's see if there's another bathroom along the way."

Sometimes I'll skip over one if there's a really long line or sh*t smeared all over the walls or something that makes it a less than desirable location.

huh.  i thought we had a mid season matchup.

i think we're going to the Rams game.  my wife saw some human interest piece about Cortland Finnegan, where he i guess helped some cancer girl run some race or something (??) and so she's all creaming her jeans about how sensitive and special he is.  and i'm lik,e "hey dummy, you DO KNOW he's been voted the NFL's most hated player for like, 3 years in a row, right?"  she's like, "nuh uh, he's super sweet!"

so she asked who he plays for, and when i said the rams she's like, "OMG WE HAVE TO GO TO THAT GAME."

hey, you never know.  it could mean somthing.  like a Week 13 matchup or some shiat.  mid dcember.  you never know.

Treygreen13: DROxINxTHExWIND: DeMarcus Russell

JaMarcus. And that guy is probably the reason the rookie pay scale happened. 68 million of the Raiders money was allocated to him and 31.5 million of it was totally lost.


I love JaMarcus for that.

DROxINxTHExWIND: whizbangthedirtfarmer: DROxINxTHExWIND: ko_kyi: I seldom agree with Donovan McNabb, but how is having your injured quarterback doing DAILY press conferences during camp helpful?


Meh. People said the same bullshiat last off-season.

"OMG! He has a nickname and commercials and he's never played a game!"
"Oh noes! He's on another magazine cover!"

All he did was go out and win rookie of the year while carrying my Redskins to the NFC East title. This is all the biatching of bored people who have nothing better to talk about. The first time he throws a touchdown or scambles for 40 yards, you and everyone like you will be cheering and acting like you were never critical.

He barely edged out Russell Wilson, who I would argue had far less expected of him and shocked more people with his play.  RGIII had nowhere to go but down.  That said, as someone who lives near DC, I do miss the days when the 'Skins were more of a comedy act.

\Ah, Jeff George drilling his receivers in the back on a regular basis never got old
\\or Heath Shuler getting injured for the 15th time
\\\or Gus Frerotte jamming his neck in the stadium wall


I don't think we should punish RGIII because the blockheads on the football draft shows missed on Russell Wilson. Remember, those are some of the same guys who wrote articles like, "DeMarcus Russell is a Sure Thing!"

And if those are the Redskins days that you remember the most, you sound young.



Oh, I was but a wee one when I watched my father's head explode when the Broncos went up in the Super Bowl, only to get shredded afterwards.  He lost some money on that one.

\still, my fond memories are of their complete ineptitude

Oooooooooh well? First of all, your wife seems very sweet. And perhaps if she sees him in action, she may realize that his helping the little cancer child run a race was probably court-ordered & revise her opinion of him. Maybe. I mean, you should at least go & find out.

And I'm not even gonna joke about that Week 13 matchup thing. The Universe really loves to fark with me when it comes to making prophetic jokes, so I will just smile & keep my thoughts inside my head and say, "Well good luck beating those Rams. They just might be good this year! That Steven Jackson is always looking to have a breakout year!"

Not to mention if you worked in sports broadcasting and needed to be on the air during specific periods of time, wouldn't it be a smart idea to scope out bathroom locations in advance so you can make that quick "shiat I shouldn't have gotten jalapeno nachos" break?

Still not as bad as The Goose shilling adult diapers for fat people. Or former boner juice Jamie Lee Curtis for shiat medication.

RGIII is a good man.......His parents should quite proud of the son they raised, should be more people like him.
 
2013-08-14 07:26:08 PM
Well OK then. In that case, I'm willing to accept blacks in the NFL now.

tnpir: Griffin, who starred as rookie for the Redskins last season and is recovering from offseason knee surgery, added, "My view on it is, yes, I am a Christian, but to each his own. You do what you want to do. If some Christians want to look at being gay as a sin, then thinking about other women, committing adultery-or any of those other sins that are in the Bible-those are sins, too. And God looks at all of us the same way,"

More Christians should follow this lead.


Not only that, but RG3 is one intelligent human being.  I really genuinely like the guy, and I felt weird and awful last year because I was so excited for my Seahawks to destroy the Redskins...but I didn't want to see him get hurt.  I really felt bad on that play on the 5 yd line when it was obvious he just blew up his knee.  My wife and mother were asking what was wrong because I got emotional.

This man has a great future ahead of him after football, and I hope all the best for him.

No probably about it. They should rename the salary cap and call it the "Russell Ceiling". Helping to protect GMs and owners from themselves since 2007.

It was incredibly dumb what was happening, but that (and the Kwame Brown factor in the NBA).  But it's not surprising; sports business practices are incredibly fertile ground for game theory.

Sort of puts the Pats moving down every year into perspective, though.

Thanks, great chart.  But what are edollars?  Kind of like bitcoins?

You play a sport which is nothing more than professional grabass with other grown men. Of course you're ok with playing with gays, er... I mean pro footballers.

There's slightly more to the game than that, but ok, if you need something to be grumpy about, I guess this is fairly innocuous.
