US: College wrestler suspended indefinitely over homophobic tweets about gay footballer Michael Sam

    What an idiot. How long before the begrudging apology?

    Not the “sorry I was wrong” apology but the gritted-teeth “sorry that people were offended, can I come back now?” apology.

  • Errol Tobias must have felt something like this pressure as the first ‘person of colour’ to play in the Springboks.

    Obviously he’s got insecurities about his sexuality.
    He looks like Captain Cowardly Closet Custard in his cute little yellow wrestling vest.
    Wrestling is a good choice for a closet case, gets him the most same-sex physical contact possible while still allowing him the tenuous excuse that it’s just sport.

    It’s too bad that he wasn’t on a scholarship! especially if it was for wrestling, that would make a few more people think before speaking. Imagine thinking you have a free ride though University… then getting indefinitely suspended from the sport you got the scholarship for and it gets withdrawn, now that would be a lesson learned if you couldn’t afford the fee’s to stay at your own expense.

    The irony of course is that he chose a sport where he grabs and rolls around with another man while in singlets.

    So a guy who likes rolling around the floor with another guy in a lycra onesie starts berating our community?

    Oh, the irony!

    But good on the authorities for taking swift action.

    Remorseful my arse! That angry little redneck is as ignorant as they come. It will take more than a suspension to change his mind. Nice lunchbox by the way.
