Blue was dumb for what he said


Listen to the audio. Blue said nothing wrong, the reporter is completely in the wrong on this.

The reporter then asks well HYPOTHETICALLY what if a guy was gay...


And even then, the reporter didn't get what he wanted so he went and twisted his words.

So blue's response is to a situation that doesn't exist.

The whole sissy thing probably wasn't smart to say, but holy shite...that was some horrible reporting. Blue answered the same exact questions 3 or 4 times. If I were a football player, I'd ignore the Reveille as much as possible for this stupid bull shite. This douche interviewing him clearly just wants his name out there for his shitty journalism.

And of course, all the good responses he had are glossed over.

The Headline itself pisses me off.
quote:

Football needs to deal with reality of homosexual athletes
NO, they don't. These punks at TDR think they can intimidate the program into creating policies that are already in place, just not specifically intended for Gays.
Everybody wants freedom of Speech until their feelings get hurt. Sick of this Political Correctness Bull shite.

But Blue wasn't even saying that that would be how he felt, he said maybe some people would react like that, but everyone would be fine with a gay player as long as they did their job.

The reporter asked him how he would feel if a gay guy was lined up next to him, and Blue said it would not matter one bit.

I fricking hated that liberal cesspool when I worked there. After getting assignments and topics the 1st semester I was there, I was told by the newly elected editor that I would be given free reign.

2nd semester rolls around and he went back on his word. I quit 5 seconds later.

frick the Reveille.

I love how theyre talking about statistics in one of the related articles.... "3.4% of the population is openly gay, and there are 109 players on the football team"

it's a skewed sample. Your average joe doesn't get a spot on a major college roster.

Retards love to point out certain statistics but leave out others.

Not to mention, it's very apparent that they have never read about or taken a class on statistics beyond the class that weirdo McKenna teaches at LSU.

Why didn't they tell us how many of that 3.4% play football?
Because Nobody cares. They want Gays to be treated just like everyone else, but demand special considerations and concessions? Hypocrites.

Typical liberal media. They distort the truth or blow the situation up to push an agenda.

The reveille has always been filled with people that try too hard.

re: Shame on the Reveille for its predatory journalism


I've been trying to drive home that point for years on here. It's really bad on the Political Talk.

Point is, most people don't understand statistics. Stats are a very convenient and lazy way to try to prove/disprove a point.

"Well statistics say that..." How many people particpated? What format was used to conduct the survey? What time of day did they participate? Where did they particpate? What was the population set/demographic you used to poll? And most important of all, was a random survey given on the streets, or did the subjects willingly volunteer their time to particpate? Because afterall, a lot of times I'm given a survey to fill out and I'm going for brevity so I'm marking "excellent" all the way across the board, even though I could probably take a little time to be completely honest and thorough.

And then after all of that, do you really think the combination of all of that plus the results are a good indicator anyway?
