    Good one, Mr. Litton. It reminds me of words of wisdom from Mad Magazine from ages ago: “Everybody has a right to his opinion, no matter how wrong he is.”

    Good, except that’s not what he meant and he has since explained that his remarks had more to do with the Oprah TV series and other media overkill than anything to do with Sam’s orientation. So it’s good except for the part where his remarks were completely misjudged.

    Drew, Drew, Drew… I can’t believe you fell for it. The media hooked you good on this one. There’s nothing in Dungy’s remarks that even remotely point to this view. I’m disappointed.

    Tony Dungy said he wouldn’t draft Micheal Sam because he imagined the other team members wouldn’t like playing with an openly gay man and would cause problems.

    So basically, he wouldn’t hire a guy because he assumes other people wouldn’t want to work with him and as a coach, he didn’t want to deal with players causing problems. In the business world, you deal with employees who cause problems by firing them.

    Not even remotely representative of what he said or meant. Political cartoons often take liberties but this one is just unfair to the extreme

    To Jase99. No, he didn’t say that. He stated that it would be a distraction to the team. You are interpreting that to mean to the players. He clarified very clearly at the end of the post what he was talking to. Also the ESPN article show’s he clearly articulates that it would be a distraction to the team as a whole because of all the media hype. He would not want to put his team through that. Mr. Litton needs to get a clue and stop believe small quotes from an entire conversation.

    So Dungy’s comments were taken out of context, eh?

    What differences does it make?

    Cheap shot at a good man.

    I stopped taking Dungy seriously when he suggested that Goodell might want to do something about the swearing on “Hard Knocks”.
    .
    And no, I’m not kidding.

    If Drew had bothered to read the Bible before drawing this strip he might have discovered that it disapproves of slander.

    Take the excuses and reinterpretations above and apply them to Jackie Robinson in 1947, then see what you think. He was a distraction, too. There were ballplayers who didn’t want to play with him.

    I have HUGE respect for Dungy, but you actually make a good point.

    It also disproves of bacon cheeseburgers. That doesn’t stop anyone from eating them.

    @Jase99

    Orthodox Jews don’t eat bacon cheeseburgers for exactly that reason. Of course, Christians do not follow the dietary rules of the Old Testament because the New Testament explains that they are living under a new covenant which does away with the technical rules of the Mosaic Law. However, both the Orthodox Jew and the Christian understand that slander is wrong and both strive not to do it.

    So what you’re saying is the old “Oh, i’m not prejudiced, but I have to cater to people who are” defense?
