Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze needs to hold players accountable for insensitive behavior

There are 15 comments on the sports.yahoo.com story from Oct 4, 2013, titled Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze needs to hold players accountable for insensitive behavior. In it, sports.yahoo.com reports that:

"Many members of an audience of mostly Ole Miss students, including an estimated 20 Ole Miss football players, openly disrespected and disrupted the Ole Miss theater department's production of 'The Laramie Project' Tuesday night at the Meek Auditorium. "Cast members of the play, which is about an openly gay male who was murdered in Laramie County in Wyoming, said members of the audience became so disruptive at times that they struggled completing the play.

"According to the play's director and theater faculty member Rory Ledbetter, some audience members used derogatory slurs like 'fag' and heckled both cast members and the characters they were portraying for their body types and sexual orientations. Ledbetter said the audience's reactions included 'borderline hate speech.' "

OK, Hugh Freeze. Time to lead.

Lead your football players at Mississippi out of ignorance and into understanding. Lead your young men toward accountability. Show that the remarkably, distressingly resilient track record for intolerance at Ole Miss can be changed for the better.

Because if ever a situation cries out for a coach to set the tone of team behavior, and to firmly establish what is acceptable and unacceptable, it's the situation at Ole Miss today. This is no time for soft-peddling it. There is a reputation at stake for a team, a university and a state.

The only southern hospitality those people is to make sure the hangman's rope knot is over the jugular vein.

I wonder how many of those meathead morons were black.

I'm sure the irony is lost on them, how Loser Miss used to be "whites only".

They all need to be EXPELLED, and forbidden from setting a big floppy toe on the college campus. They also ALL need to write a complete apology to each cast member.

They acted like a bunch of 9 year olds who lost a T-ball game.

The 20 offending players should be sidelined and made to dress out in new uniforms for public view

I'm gay, live in Arizona, and am a big NFL fan.

I just read a few hours ago, for the first time, that NFL free agent Kerry Rhodes, who played for the Arizona Cardinals until just recently, is gay. I read that the Arizona Cardinals released him BECAUSE he is gay. I hope another team signs him.

If they DID release him simply because he's gay, it goes a long way in explaining why NFL players are reluctant to come out. Doing so could cost them their careers and millions of dollars.

Gee, you must be a barrel of laughs at parties, little one, with your continual lying.

FYI, Billie Jean King and Martina Navatarova (sp?) are GAY women, and have accomplished a great deal in sports. You sound jealous.
