    You responded to criticism of his career by calling the people making those criticisms homophobic. I'm pointing out your accusation rings rather hollow if you can't actually defend his career against such criticism.


    They've already out themselves as homophobic. I'm merely noting they they happen to be the people who have taken this opportunity to criticize his career.
    Right, they outed themselves by leveling a criticism that you can't actually address ... Maybe they are simply right, that he's a ****ty player and this will have no impact on his career.






    Why would I be interested in disproving their assessment of his career? Their perception about the quality of his career has absolutely no relevancy to his coming out of the closet.
    besides all the people talking about the impact it will have on his career ...

    he's probably referring to the fact that he was dishonest with his fiancé and mislead her for 7 years (which he cited earlier)

    Remember when Clinton got sucked off in the WH and we were told, hey. that is none of our business it's his personal life? And Starr was branded a pervert because he was leaning on Bubba. So now we got a basketball player who like to suck men's members and the media is all over it. Why isn't this just his own personal sex life. Are the President and others perverts for making it the news story of the day? WWJD? He would have condemned the young man. Jesus was a Jew through and through and he treated the OT as the word of his God. And it makes no difference what Paul said, he was a heretic. All thing to all men, BS. And if you want to brand those Christians who believe homosexuality is a sin please do. They're right in line with all those 'moderate' Muslims I keep hearing abouy.

    ........ to use homosexuality as an excuse to explain why he's an unemployed athlete.

    You realize that is what the story is going to be come later this year, right?

    "Why is Jason Collins an unemployed NBA baller? Could it be.......gay?!?!?!"

    Do you have any empathy for his girlfriend of SEVEN years?

    Re: Jason Collins (NBA Center) announces that he is gay, altering the landscape of sp

    my basic gripe with the whole thing

    Any time you can have someone this high-profile come out, it's just so helpful, particularly to young people.

    Most recently a little-used reserve center for the Washington Wizards after a midseason trade from the Boston Celtics, the 7-foot Collins is a free agent who can sign with any team. He wants to keep playing in the NBA.
    a little used reserve center who most NBA fans (and certainly most americans) have never even heard of is not "high profile"


    they are treating this as if the freakin pope admitted being gay.

    False. I pointed out that the homophobes are criticizing his career in this context.

    Don't make **** up about what I did simply because you didn't comprehend what was present.


    I'm pointing out your accusation rings rather hollow if you can't actually defend his career against such criticism.
    Observation, not accusation. Only a ****ing idiot would think that I was trying to defend his career.



    Right, they outed themselves by leveling a criticism that you can't actually address
    No, they outed themselves for years prior to this thread. Are you arguing form a position of ignorance again? What did I tell you about that?








    besides all the people talking about the impact it will have on his career ...
    Who gives a **** about the impact it will have on his career? It shouldn't have any impact on his career.

    you are accusing everyone who criticises his career of being a homophobe.
