    Needless to say, Wilfork was pissed and Johnson backed off quick.

    Sorry if out there...

    BOSTON (CBS) — There are certain things that should always be off limits for conversations, especially in public forums, and former Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson is learning that today.

    Johnson, now a sports radio host in Houston, was participating in a segment called “None Of Your Business.” Johnson was asked by a caller to say which of his former teammates had the “ugliest spouse.” The website Houston Media Watch captured the audio and posted the segment online.

    “Oh, my gosh. All right, you know what? I got it. Yeah, I got it. This is a big, big man,” Johnson said. “He won’t hear this — Vince Wilfork.”

    Well, Johnson’s presumption proved true, but only temporarily, as the audio clip made its way around Twitter on Friday morning. And apparently, Wilfork caught wind of the comments, because he tweeted out a warning shot.

    “Let me apologize to my fans in advance of whatever I may say today,” Wilfork tweeted, “but I do not play when it comes to my family.”

    Wilfork’s previous tweet was directed at @TedJ52, Johnson’s Twitter account, according to his bio on the Sports Radio 610 site.

    “[You're] barking up the wrong tree,” Wilfork wrote to Johnson. “I hear and see everything [expletive].”
    Later, Wilfork posted a note he wrote on his iPhone to Twitter and directed it at Johnson. It read (edited for clarity):

    “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but it is [messed] up when an ex-teammate that I actually looked up to and enjoyed playing with takes shots at my wife for whatever reasons. I love my wife and my family. She is my everything. I don’t care when this was said — no one should cross that line. The line has been crossed so it is what it is. All I wanna say is [expletive] you! You don’t want to [expletive] with me or my family. Take shots at me all day but not them. I have a great family life and [am] blessed to have them.”

    Johnson tweeted out an apology later Friday morning.

    “I just made a huge error in judgement and want to apologize to Vince and his wife for comments I made earlier today on a Houston radio show,” @TedJ52 tweeted. “Vince and his family are outstanding people who I have admired since they arrived in [New England]. I learned a big lesson today and feel terrible.”

    Wilfork and Johnson were teammates in 2004, when Wilfork was a rookie and Johnson was in his final season in the NFL.

    Wilfork met his wife, Bianca, when he was a freshman at the University of Miami.

    I was listening when he said that. I love that segment.

    Re: Bianca wilfork....she's not my type, but when it comes to ex teammates and people you deal/dealt with, you can choose your words more carefully.

    I should probably keep my keyboard silent, but I would like to go on a little mini rant here:

    :rant:
    Why do guys think it is ok to trash a women based on her looks? I read the posts from males I have met in person who are not in the least bit attractive who feel the need to insult to looks of a woman in a picture. I usually laugh and shake my head, these guys say the wouldn't hit it, when the reality is they wouldn't stand a chance in hell of "hitting it."

    If women were as shallow as men who do this crap, and only graded men on looks, not many males would make it to the alter.

    Why would that jerk ask the question and why would Johnson answer it?

    :rant:

    Too many people don't know the difference between humor and cruelty. If you don't like to be called little, white boy, the N word, or fat b****, then don't think it's OK to do the rest. If you don't care about somebody else's feelings, then you are the moron who deserves no respect....AND DONT' LAUGH when some moron is entertaining you. You'll deserve it when you're the next victim.

    I wouldn't expect this guy to do anymore than apologize, which he already did, but he should know that his apology does not even come close to making up for the damage. I hope most people turned off the radio when this crap was airing.

    The object of the game is to ask questions that the host don't want to answer in hopes that they'll say "none of your business" and you win a prize.

    They do this segment every Friday, and Teddy has participated a few times. He seems like a good guy overall that made a mistake here.

    I get your point when it gets insulting, which might be somewhat of a matter of opinion. Guys are practically born addicted to the looks of "hot" women, though. It's tough not to look....and then it's easy to stick your foot in your mouth. I believe a married man should try really hard to keep even his eyes off of other women, but that is easy for me to say when I am sadly not married.

    It's an observation. You have eyes, you see things.

    Doesn't mean you have to do inappropriate things, but I can't help it if I see an attractive woman. :shades:

    Getting married doesn't make you blind.

    Looks are not what matters.

    Maybe this woman cooks really well and can suck a golf ball through a water-hose. :jk:

    I do want to say that I have not even looked to see what this woman looks like, so....I think I'll keep it that way, since I had to show what a pig I am. :devilpig:

    I think the statement "I have meet plenty of men with ugly wives, but i never meet a man with a wife that is ugly" applies here.

    Johnson is over 25 he should know better than the get set-up with a frat boy like question of that manner. Nothing ever good comes from calling somebody you had/have a relationship wife ugly. You are going to at best wear a cussing out if not full out ass whipping. You are not bleeping her, so why do you care anyway.

    If you wanna be happy
    For the rest of your life,
    Never make a pretty woman your wife,
    So from my personal point of view,
    Get an ugly girl to marry you.

    A pretty woman makes her husband look small
    And very often causes his downfall.
    As soon as he marries her
    Then she starts to do
    The things that will break his heart.
    But if you make an ugly woman your wife,
    You'll be happy for the rest of your life,
    An ugly woman cooks her meals on time,
    She'll always give you peace of mind.

    Don't let your friends say
    You have no taste,
    Go ahead and marry anyway,
    Though her face is ugly,
    Her eyes don't match,
    Take it from me she's a better catch.

    Say man.
    Hey baby.
    Saw your wife the other day.
    Yeah?
    Yeah, she's ugly.
    Yeah, she's ugly but she sure can cook.
    Yeah?. Okay.

    People here are well within their boundaries to speak on her looks. Personally its not something I can ever remember doing as far as speaking on a player's wife being ugly. Just not my thing, but to each his own.

    But Johnson lives by a different code because this is a guy he played with. There are just certain places you don't go. He can say all he wants about any of his teammates, but leave wives and kids out of it. Just lost a lot of respect for the guy. And to be that stupid to think that it wouldn't get back to Wilfork makes me question his intelligence overall. Does he not know what year it is?

    All I know is I'd love to have Vince, his wife, and kids in Houston this season if it were possible. Bring on the whole Wilfork family!

    Tedy wasn't lying... that woman is nasty, especially for an NFL wife. All the political correctness in the world can't change that fact...
