Comments: Ozzie Guillen (hilariously) defends his use of the "F" word

I was flat out wrong on the CBS/China story.

CBS sucks.

I dunno, Hube. Yeah, I actually do think that unintentionally encouraging bigotry (though I think Guillen is far more dopey loudmouth jock than evil fellow) is worse than the beaning thing.

You really think kids out there who love the game of baseball needed the Tracey incident to be let in on that little baseball "secret??" And yeah, I do think they're more likely to call their fellow little leaguers "fag" than to bean them for no reason.

Wow, what a surprise, dan.

If beaning is "no secret," certainly neither is teen males calling others "fag." Your thinking the latter is "worse" is just, as I said, PC nonsense.

Let's see ... possible serious physical injury vs. feelings hurt? Hmm ....

I said "more likely!" I think we're dealing with 2 issues here.

Yes, I think it's more likely that the Guillen fag thing would cause kids to say fag than the Guillen beaning thing will cause kids to bean.

I obviously don't think that if all kids started saying "fag" and all kids started throwing baseballs at each other, that the former is worse. Perhaps that's the only point you were trying to make the first place, in which case we agree. But I'm also saying that your scenario is less of a probability.

I guess the liberal in me finds it funny when people get all offended by a word.....

aren't you more affended by something if it is something you don't want to be associated with?

Speaking as someone who dislikes both Mariotti and Guillen, I found this kind of funny. Not the initial insult, which is just Guillen's normal moronishness. (I invented a word!!)

The defense, as Hube pointed out, is friggin' hilarious. Could he have been more offensive in trying not to offend?

Did you see his reaction to his fine and being told to go to sensitivity training? He mocked it, and said he wouldn't learn anything and again insulted Mariotti.

It's getting to the point where he must want to be suspended.
