Did he just say that? No Whitney, No...
 
Don't know if anybody was listening to Nick and Lopez on 610 this morning but, did anyone hear the interview with Whitney Mercilus?

if you didn't, basically (paraphrasing) he was asked about Jake Locker and his ability to run our of the pocket and Mercilus said "yeah he is known to run, "it's gay", it's ok, we will have to contain him" or something to that effect, can't remember the exact wording but...

I think the Texans flying under the media's radar is a good thing in this situation cause this could be a potential S storm. Can you see the ESPN front page now? "Houston Texan Rookie Uses Gay Slur To Describe Titans QB"

Maybe he's just saying that locker is happily excited when he gets to run. :kitten:

Are you sure he didn't just say "it's okay, it's okay" twice in a row, and not "it's gay" one of those times?

Much ado about nothing.

Meh, non-story. Languages evolve, word meanings change. "Gay" is now commonly used in that context, for better or for worse.

No you are right...Until someone like Florio or another Texans hater gets a hold of it and runs....

no it was "it's gay" and I understand the contex of the word in this day and age. when we used it as kids, it meant something totally different than it does now, just waiting for a media talking head to get a hold of it...

Yeah I heard that this morning too......shouldn't be a big deal but too many people who just love getting butt hurt out there so wouldn't be surprised if someone got all pissy about it.....which is gay in itself. :truck:

I ragged on my boys for their use of this term, but it is definitely in the vocabulary of the under 30 crowd.

Maybe he meant Jake Locker is just HAPPY. :um:

I did not here it but I am 100% positive if he said it this how it was meant. My niece and others their age use it all the time.

It's gay has a total different meaning from "he's gay"

I don't care about the PC crowd.

I'm just wondering why he feels it's gay that Locker uses his legs? I don't get his thought process there...

But whatever...Just play football...

I don't want to to think about Jake Locker's legs. :nolisten:

I'm pretty sure he said, "It's ghey"

Are you sure he didn't say "it's 'kay" and slightly mispronounced it?


Other than that, this entire thread is ghey! :kitten:
