Amen...he's AWFUL.

What's funny is he's so pompus that he still won't back off his stance that the skins traded to much for RG3. Claims he would still reverse the trade if he could. No idea how he has listeners.

First time I've heard that...

Wow, that's just nuts.

He's just one of those guys that would rather be controversial than have common sense, no matter how dumb it makes him look.

Re: Transgendered Athletes in Professional Sports

The main problem when this issue arises, just like with most homosexual, trans, etc battles is that the special rights always flow in only one direction. This argument is always put forward to get females into male sports, but never considers the opposite direction. We're not talking about letting a NBA D-League player who can't make an actual NBA roster from going and dominating the NBA. We're not talking about letting Prince Fielder play softball in the Olympics to lessen his offseason injury risk in the WBC and still play for his country. The NHL players might be bored, they're going to be allowed to invade field hockey leagues right?

Nope, as usual, these exceptions will only apply to the minority groups who are getting their way just by being loud. Just like with the whole Augusta golf club debate, it's only the PRIVATE men's club that has to bend. No womens' groups are being forced to change their rules or reason for existence to accept a man.

Men play men's sports. Women can play in womens' sports. You participate in the one for the gender that you were born. Just because you pay a doctor to mutilate your anatomy with a scalpel, doesn't mean you've changed your gender. Do a DNA test if you don't believe me.

Yes, there are some with real birth defects with their sex organs and I feel sorry for any true pain it has caused them, but they're the miniscule minority in this movement. Most have done what they've done to their body by choice.

I'm not discriminating, just using some common sense and applying EQUAL rules....not the SPECIAL rules they're seeking that will only apply to their group.

Also, no one is stopping group of females from starting their own leagues when there's not one offered for them. It's been done plenty of times. No, they'll never be of the caliber of the NFL in terms of exposure, popularity or level of success, but then again, the participants are not going to be of the physical caliber of player that an NFL player is.

We're not living in a fairy land where any kid can actually be whatever they want just because they dream it. Not everyone is born with the capabilities to be able to handle every job. That's not discrimination, that's life, and reality.

Although its name sounds a bit misogynistic, the Lingerie Football League is legit. The players are stacked and they hit hard. They wear less padding than their male counterparts... I've seen broken collarbones. Most of them come from D1 sports and are sustaining their athletic abilities after college.

Give me any 11 members of WP and we could beat any team, just don't have the WP members wear lingerie.

No they should not be allowed to participate in womens sports. If they want to be treated, adressed, and "thought" of as women that is their choice and i respect it. However a snip here and an implant there does not make you a woman. There are plenty of great women athletes, and i am not saying they are inferior, but all in all men have - broader shoulders, greater stature, and "as a whole" are stronger. So i dont think it is fair. I mean the fact that women and men have their own teams in the first place speaks to the inequality in physical strength and stature.

And they're not as smart.
