Yeah, a lot of people call Manhattan the city or NYC, despite it technically being a borough.

Still missing the point. Do I have to be a professional artist to be able to have an opinion on a piece of art?

No, he's being criticized.

And he could have been smarter about it. Especially given some of the other anti gay comments and actions he's made.

No, I am reading it as, whether he is just about good enough or not, I wouldn't even bother. Not worth the trouble.

It's not uncommon for people to back step after putting their foot in their mouth. Also, Dungy is a part of the media. That's the biggest irony of all of this.

Just because he didn't say it publicly doesn't mean he feels comfortable with it.

It's certainly a part of the message. You have to take it all into account.

Nobody would debate that. I was questioning your wording of the post above.

The point is, it shows where Dungy stands when it comes to gay people.

What if the player was good enough to draft? What do you think Dungy would have said?

He chose the response he gave. He chose the number of words. He chose what he said. It was his choice.

But you can still follow the story closely enough and follow sports and sportcenter, etc, etc, closely enough to know enough of what's going on without knowing every single detail.

Or, perhaps, since you've just stated that I often bring great content to this site, that maybe I'm seeing something that you aren't?

You do realize that Dungy spoke out against Collins' "lifestyle" and was pro gay marriage ban. Just in case you weren't aware.

So if someone makes a racist comment, I can't have an issue with it unless I am actively fighting for racial rights?

Reasonable debate? You called someone a hypocrite based on hypothetical inactions that you chose to assume.

You don't have to be a painter to judge a painting. By your logic, nobody can pasionately discuss any topic unless they are dedicated to that topic.

But they are not. And you are not answering them. So if you think they are so stupid, why not just give what you think is the obvious answer and move on?

Why is that a distraction? An interview by itself is not a distraction lest you make it into one.

The point is, if you want to draft him, you draft him, and don't worry about perceived distractions that would be over in the blink of an eye.

Which all could have passed in short time, just like it did for Collins.
Commented on Jason Collins to Tony Dungy: Look at my example with Brooklyn Nets on Jul 28 2014, 11:52p - 1 reply
But then by Dungy's logic, no team should bother drafting him. I guess you have to be really good to be worth overcoming the distraction. Is that it?

The fact that you use a 95 year old for a moving company as your analogy shows you are stretching.

I am making a general statement, not just based on anything in this article alone. I am not even really getting into whatever you've been discussing on this page all that much.
Commented on Ian Eagle: Kevin Garnett can be with the Nets for the "long-term" on Jul 28 2014, 4:52a
Not my intention. Just how I see it. Not a criticism. But it does sometimes seem like you enjoy the debate more than the topic itself. Like the act of debating is what you are enjoying.

If that's how you choose to see it.

They won 55 games one year. And that was with an injured Amare. For some reason, Chandler declined since then.

Yes. I do. But I also know that you don't have to believe in religion to believe in God. They are not mutually inclusive.

It's kind of unfair to expect that when those very people you created don't even know whether you exist or not.

This. The similarities are way more important than the differences.

I am not even sure what you are trying to say in your first paragraph, to be honest.

Yup.

That's a separate argument. The world doesn't have to run on idealism for hypocrisy to still exist.
Commented on Jason Collins to Tony Dungy: Look at my example with Brooklyn Nets on Jul 27 2014, 5:57a
But in order to use that option to be "accepted" he has to live his life a lie. Can you imagine what that would be like?
Commented on Jason Collins to Tony Dungy: Look at my example with Brooklyn Nets on Jul 27 2014, 5:55a
If he felt that he was the best player for his team at that pick, then he should have drafted him. Whatever media circus that would have existed would only last so long.
Commented on Jason Collins to Tony Dungy: Look at my example with Brooklyn Nets on Jul 27 2014, 5:51a
For us, not for him. He knows one day, even if it's on our deathbeds, that we will eventually believe in him again.

Well, that's where we run into a problem. You believe in the bible and take it word for word. I don't. I don't believe in the bible as literal, plus I believe it has been altered over the years.

You can't push it on them, but you can recognize the hypocrisy or lack of self awareness at play.

And why wouldn't they. Hence the definition of the word "empathy."
Commented on Jason Collins to Tony Dungy: Look at my example with Brooklyn Nets on Jul 27 2014, 5:33a
No, what they are trying to bring out is that one person who knows what it's like to be judged or oppressed over something he has no control over (like Dungy)

They are still being oppressed. And the struggles of a gay person may not be as external as a black person, but they are emotional, lonely, disconnected struggles nonetheless.
Commented on Jason Collins to Tony Dungy: Look at my example with Brooklyn Nets on Jul 27 2014, 5:26a
At the same time, a black person is raised in a black family and is able to develop that identity in, ideally, a loving environment. In other words, he's not alone.
Commented on Jason Collins to Tony Dungy: Look at my example with Brooklyn Nets on Jul 27 2014, 5:24a
He was making the point, through obvious sarcasm, that oppression is still oppression, and it's never ok, nor should it be a competition or be compared.

Unless his improvements resulted from a change in his mindset, which is what he did last year. The hot stretch he had in the second half and in the playoffs wasn't the result of increased skill or getting better as a player,

I don't it bothers him even one iota. Why would God have an ego like we do? If someone doesn't believe in God, don't you think God would know and understand why?
