  1. Why is there no option for anti-gay, anti-soccer moron?

    Redundant. Anyone who is anti-gay and anti-soccer IS a moron.

    Really, Roland? If it was just a crack at soccer, then why is it directed to a “dude”? Is it okay if a woman was excited about it? I’m not suggesting the guy is a homophobe, he probably doesn’t have a problem with gays, but I AM suggesting he accept the fact that he (like millions of other men in our culture) only know how to insult other men in homosexual terms. While that doesn’t make you anti-gay, it makes you a neanderthal.

  4. He is an idiot who would sell out his mother for a buck! There is no place in journalism for a creep like this other than on Faux News. He does not belong on CNN. What is more disturbing is that CNN doesn’t see this!

  5. There is definitely homophobia, which he probably didn’t even notice, in his tweet. But I don’t think his intention was to be homophobic –if that makes sense. They guy is just a moron who was saying something he thought was funny to get a reaction without thinking about what could be construed from what he said.

  6. I agree, he is just a homophobic moron. Unfortunately, he is a homophobic moron in a position of some power, being a nationally viewed journalist…and that ain’t so good. It is time to send a very serious message to all people in power who cannot avoid abusing minorities. Fire him with cause. This man knows the damage in lives his, and others, homophobia costs daily. There is no longer room for this kind of attitude. Young gays are killing themselves, yet this man does nothing but make jokes at Gay’s expense…perhaps not so funny. And perhaps not so harmless. There is no reason to take a chance on whether he is harmless or not…fire him now.

    I’ve always wondered who that little sniping weasel was on CNN, holding the line via race in almost all his comments. Now I find out it’s Rola nd Martin. First of all, when it comes to soccer, he should know that soccer bashers are passe from the 70’s and 80’s. Most sportswriters and broadcasters accept that soccer has taken its place in the sports landscape, and knowledgeable wags will agree that soccer has a chance to overtake ice hockey as America’s third most popular sport. When it comes to politics, this guy is about as flat along racial lines as anyone I’ve seen on TV. Third, he can’t even speak correctly. I wonder if he has a journalism degree that would have qualified him to be on TV news casts? This guy adds about as much to CNN as Sara Palin does at Fox — NOT MUCH.
