>> "To those who construed my comment as being anti-gay
>> or homophobic or advancing violence, I'm truly sorry."

That is what's known as a "non-apology apology": He's blaming those who said his bigotry was inappropriate. He's not apologizing for anything, he's insulting people.

If he wants to apologize, he should resign and stay out of public view permanently. THAT would be a sufficient apology.

They were anti gay and probably due to some cocktails on game day.
