    Boo-hoo-hoo, he didn't mean to do that? It took a couple minutes to put that on. What were you thinking?? Nobody will be offended, everyone will laugh? Whatever your convictions, predijuces are, you have to be held accountable for your actions. You represent your team, family when you make such stupid statements, it is not about you only, you have hurt many people. AND don't blame it on a "Latino thing" I am a hispanic, and loathe what you think is being macho by using those kind of derogatory, demeaning hurtful words. Fine him heavily, Hope he regrets this!


    Yup, I'm a faggot & he's a boat rower...but hey no offense to the cigar monkey.


    Yunel Escobar wrote "Tue ere Maricon" on his eye black but MEANT to write "Tu ere American" - a slur intended for Canadians.


    what a dumb ass... didn't he learn anything from all those olympians being dumbasses as well?!


    I Couldn't have said it better myself @johnwayne1


    He didn't mean to do it. What is the medical condition that he suffers from that makes him do anything without meaning to do it? Did he do it while walking in his sleep?

    I'd have more respect for someone who feels strongly about a personal or political conviction and acts accordingly to that conviction...than someone who does something and then p-p-p-ies out on the statement they meant to make in the first place.

    And what exactly does he mean by, " It's a word used often within teams..."? Wonder if he thought the others players would be coming out on the field with him with his graffiti on their faces? Maybe a case of hazing by team mates that think his career is in the dumpster.

    What a dumb ass.

    Post Script:

    I do not apologizes for anything that I have written here or thought on this report. I totally stand by the fact that this guy is a matter what your opinions are about the gay folks.
