Tony Dungy Unfairly Attacked

The homosexual mafia has struck again. This time, however, they have picked the wrong target. Beloved former Tampa Bay and Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy has been under a vicious assault for honestly answering a reporter's question.

In an interview with the Tampa Tribune, Dungy was asked if he would have drafted Michael Sam, the University of Missouri football player who has come out of the closet as a homosexual. Dungy's replied, "I wouldn't have taken him, not because I don't believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn't want to deal with all of it [the media circus] . . . It's not going to be totally smooth . . . things will happen.''

There's nothing hate-filled or anti-homosexual about Dungy's response. Practically everyone knows Dungy is serious about his Christian faith. But more importantly, he lives his Christian faith in his everyday life.

Open Letter to Doc Rivers

African American news from Pasadena - Sports - open letter to Doc RiversGood morning Doc:

African American news from Pasadena - Sports - Doc RiversI have not had the pleasure of meeting you, but I am one of your biggest fans. I have long considered you to be one of the three top head coaches in the NBA. It is clear to anyone who is noticing that you are building the Clippers into a championship organization.

The situation with Donald T. Sterling is an absolute mess. There isn't any other way to describe it. The media has quoted you as saying that you will resign from the Clippers, if the Sterling issue is not resolved soon. I do hope that you will not resign and that you will stay with the Clippers, even if things get worse than they are now.

As unpleasant and as stressful as dealing with Sterling must have been for you, it is ironic that it has been good for your career. As a result of this fiasco, you are now both the President and the head coach of the team. I assume that this promotion to President brought you an increase in salary, and some other perks. You may not have planned it this way, but it is a good idea to take any gift promotion that comes along.

With respect to Sterling, it is highly likely that some of the other NBA owners share his thoughts, although they have not been recorded saying them. So, Sterling does not love you. If you are receiving your paychecks on time, do you need his love? It might be worthwhile for you to consider the relationship between LeBron James and the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers. When James left the Cavs five years ago to play in Miami, the owner of his old team was quite disappointed and upset. He wrote a letter denouncing James, and also calling him among other things a "Coward" and a "Traitor". This letter was also posted on the Cavaliers web site until about 60 days ago.
