C'mon people - try to make this guy an angel when clearly he isnt.

It's political correctness at it's best. I've never seen a 7th rd pick get so much media attention and it can get thrown down our throats, but when someone has an opinion of OMG and gross, he gets suspended and fined? C'mon PZ - try to make this guy a demon when clearly he isn't.

And you're trying to make him Pacman Jones because of a tweet.

Weak. It was OMG and horrible. It would have been horrible if it was man and woman. Sensitivity training, what a joke. Political correctness at it's best.


You really believe it would have been commented on or noticed if it were a man and a woman???

He shouldn't have been suspended and if I were him, I'd sue the Dolphins in court. He has a right to not feel comfortable about what he saw.

He does have a right to not feel comfortable, he also has the right to freely speak his mind via any outlet he wants.

Just like his employer has the right to set a code of conduct for its employess and deal with it accrodingly.
He is being fined, he might miss a game, big deal.

Have you ever seen something like that watching the draft between a man and a woman?

I've been watching the draft for many years and I have never seen a man and woman carry on like that, it looked like a wedding ceremony, they were celebrating their love, not his selection, his priorities seem to be skewed.

A vote in the herald or sentinel said 77% of voters disagree with the suspension....

You can tell our franchise overreacted too quickly, Considering Greg Hardy beat his wife and the Panthers haven't taken any action yet.

Just playing devil's advocate here...how far do you let employers go and when does the constitution kick in? Obviously if I discriminate against you if you're a minority, the constitution trumps the employer. That line keeps shifting all the time. I've had friends who were persecuted at work for being Christian and having small, religious articles in their cube. Tebow was told to remove John 3:16 from his eyes in both college and the NFL. He complied but again, does the NFL do what it wants, when it wants and rights be damned?

As I understand it reality show camera's from the Oprah network were there. Possibly planned?

Excellent point, I was not aware of that, and it did seem a little staged at the time thinking back on it.

I'm with you on this, I don't really know why it has gotten like this, why the NFL and other major sports have to become the police of the world, I understand drug testing for PEDs, but nothing else, also understand having a code of conduct, but it's out of control right now.

However, you put your name on that dotted line then your agreeing to their intrusive policies, so it is ultimately on the player.
