Gibbs apologizes for calling Dallas Fans ugly

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2127114

BALTIMORE -- Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs apologized Saturday for calling Dallas Cowboys fans "the ugliest people in the world."



While answering questions from the crowd at the team's Fan Appreciation Day at training camp on Friday, Gibbs said: "I know we don't have any Dallas people here -- they are the ugliest people in the world."



Gibbs later stressed that he was joking, but he felt the need to address the matter again after Saturday's scrimmage against the Baltimore Ravens.



"I tried to make a joke," Gibbs said. "I was joking. It didn't come out probably like a joke or like it should've. I hope all my buddies in Dallas -- because I've got a lot of buddies down there -- took it the right way. I hope they thought it was a joke.



"But if they didn't think it was a joke, or if anybody took it the wrong way other than a joke, when you make a mistake like that, you've got to apologize. So I apologize to anybody that might have taken it the other way."

It was funny because it's true! Gibbs is a gentleman, so he appologized, but we all know he meant it! Monday night in Dallas is going to be fun...

Re: Gibbs apologizes for calling Dallas Fans ugly

Interesting that this is the second time in less than a year that Gibbs has made a joke and then had to clarify it the next day. Remember back around February when he said his time in the NFL would be short (compared to his lifetime in NASCAR) and he joked that it would be "really short" if he doesn't start winning again?

Re: Gibbs apologizes for calling Dallas Fans ugly

i am sorry they are also the dumbest, just because their coach doesn't care at all about there organization and its history it doesn't mean that Gibbs, a life long skin couldn't take a shot at OUR RIVALS, a man with that much history in Washington isn't even aloud to join in the spirit of the people. It is disgusting. Parcells is a team jumper while gibbs is only devoted to the redskins. It is hard for them to see an othority figure actually care about a team

Re: Gibbs apologizes for calling Dallas Fans ugly

I don't think Joe apologized due to any pressure from anyone. He has CLASS. It was a class move. That is just Joe. He's always been that way. It's why we love him. And by the way...DALLAS SUCKS!!
