Imagine if Joey Porter mated with Ann Coulter … they could spit out homobigot puppies left and right, well mostly just right.
I just had to chime in on this. The Tribune Review printed a list of Joey's highs and lows during his Steeler tenure. I won't recant all the amazing athletic feats he accomplished — bully for him for doing the job he was amply compensated to do. But here's how Scott Brown sums up Porter's homophobia:
The outspoken Porter made comments that some said were offensive last December, when he called Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. a derogatory name for a homosexual man during a post-game interview. Porter apologized for the word he used, though not to Winslow, and was fined $10,000 by the NFL.
WTF? Outspoken? Some said were offensive? In what reality is calling Kellen Winslow Jr. a fag not offensive? He was trash talking so everything he said was intended to be offensive.
Brown was more outraged by Porter's horse-murdering dogs than his blatant bigotry. Nice, huh?
Now if I could just connect this to police secondary employment, the mayoral endorsement or Dennis Regan …
