    Yeah but his tweet is just straight up ignorant. He's implying that gay people CHOOSE to be homosexual, which is just false. People have the right to voice their opinions, but when public figures like Mike Wallace just spew **** on the internet for no good reason, it's a problem. He knows that everything he does represents the Dolphins organization, and for him to say this is literally incomprehensibly dumb.

    agree 100%. I see nothing wrong with this tweet. He's not bashing gays. just saying he doesn't understand. and I agree with him too.

    I agree that times are way too PC. And I don't have a problem he feels that way, but that he broadcasted it on twitter for everyone and the world to see. The fact of the matter is that times are different and while things shouldn't be so PC, they are. And he knows that or he should, therefore, it was not necessary to broadcast it on twitter for all to see. If he was just talking to a buddy of his and said that to him, yeah cool, whatever. But he should've known better after the outcry thar game from the niners player having an anti gay remark on twitter i think.

    But Vaark, it's just an "opinion," just like the KKK's views are just their "opinions."

    Right now his agent is probably telling him to claim his Twitter was hacked.

    I wouldn't like it at all if he did that. Don't apologize because it's the thing to do, apologize because you believe it. If you don't believe it, don't apologize. The only thing that bothers me about gay players coming out, is that the media is going to get ratings by continuing to keep it in the forefront. Threads like this show that people are interested in it, so you're going to get a steady dose of it on TV, internet, radio, etc. I don't care about who the hell the players are sleeping with, I want to talk about sports.

    Hes already trending.....a **** storm of media attention is incoming. That tweet did the organization no favors. Its one thing if a third string QB said it, no one cares....but this is Mike Wallace.

    True. He didn't denigrate anyone's orientation. I think in this society, they almost wait for someone to say something "politically incorrect" so they can crucify them. I don't think he should've said it, just because the media's gonna make this a story, but I don't think what he said was so wrong.
