    My initial reaction is to correct you by saying, "equal rights for gays", because IMO Don Jones, as an individual person, was not treated rightfully so in his completely natural and, what I believe to be, a rather harmless remark. Seems like a very over-the-top irrational decision on the Dolphins/NFL part in trying to hard in pushing a PR issue.

    Read what I replied to....gay people obviously bring up certain emotions in people.
    As do child molesters, politicians, or baptist preachers for that matter. But rules and guidelines shouldn't be created from emotions, they should be designed from fact. Emotions should have nothing to do with it.

    Don Jones twitter account

    Keep your thoughts private. You represent an nfl team.

    No wonder why we suck...our players are too focused on looking like idiots on social media or playing stupid pranks.

    What is fact? I'm pretty sure biology is fact...child molesters are committing a crime with someone who doesn't consent. It's such a stupid parallel.

Gay rights do deserve a platform, same as any race deserves one.
    LOL, what has that got to do with ANYTHING?? I am a straight guy, does that mean I have to throw my wife down in front of the camera when I get drafted and have sex with her in front of the country to prove I'm straight?? His actions had nothing to do with football, and it certainly wasn't normal behavior. His actions were immature and screaming for attention. The Rams should have released him on the spot, and if that had been a girl he was acting that way with they would have.

    You seem to be sane compared to the rest in here...and is it over the top? Ya sure, but you have to protect your billion dollar corporation's image and it isn't too much to ask from your players to exercise some common sense.

    Nobody is saying Jones or anyone else has to AGREE WITH IT but people have to ACCEPT IT and realize everyone is different from themselves. There are things you just don't say on Social Media.
    Please God, let me see 1 Dolphins Superbowl victory before I die.

    No they wouldn't have...that's idiotic to think and self serving. You can go ahead and have a problem with how he conducted himself...but you have a remote, change the channel.
