    Anyway... I don't think he deserves to be fired just for that. However, I think his employers do have the right to fire him, if his actions are reflected in overall sales. This would be a legitimate reason for firing him, not the slurs.

    He shouldn't be cut over his use of slurs, but I'd cut him for his comments about his coaches and his lack of performance.

    I don't remember having an opinion about Rush buying an NFL team, one way or the other. Does your question have a point?

    That was my view. I could care less who owns a team.

    Nah, gays make up about 1% of the population. They'd loss more support by caving into that kind of blackmail than they would be telling the gays to bugger off.

    And...when Larry sets the rushing record, that will generate enough interest to balance out any miffed gays.

    So it's only gay individuals who dislike slurs made against gay people?

    What record? Fewest yards in a season by a starter?

    I see... You have a point, but you don't want to come out and say it? Perhaps you didn't see Zyph's warning about trolling a page earlier?
