Tony Dungy is a right-wing fundamentalist crypto-Christian full of hate for gay people. On Tuesday, July 21, Dungy said that he would never have hired openly gay NFL football player Michael Sam on any of his teams. When outraged fans castigated Dungy for his statement, he clarified his stand: "I do not believe Michael's sexual orientation will be a distraction to his teammates or his organization. I do, however, believe that the media attention that comes with it will be a distraction."
Because, you know, Dungy has never done anything controversial. Like refusing to fire Mike Shula (Bucs GM Rich McKay forced him to do that), or hiring Titans offensive coordinator Les Steckel, or moving Bucs receivers coach Clyde Christiensen to offensive coordinator.
More of that silly "hate the sin, not the sinner -- but string up fags by their thumbs because you hate the sin" talk. Baloney, Tony Gungy! I call bullshit on you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
By Dungy's logic, NO ONE should ever have hired a black man for anything in the NFL. Most especially a coaching position.
