In Gumbels defense he was probably trying to be funny, and for some guys it's really hard for them to be funny. It's a shame that people need to really think hard about what they are going to say now a days becuase others can take their comments out of context and blow the situation out of proportion, and others just have a thin shell and can't take a little jab.
People (I'm not directing these comments to anyone on this board, so don't take it personally) need to lighten and not sweat the small stuff so much. I'm glad Gumbel gets to keep his job and I hope they give him a raise because then another group will get pissed of about that!
You are so right! In these dayas of political correctness, a person is not sure what to say and not say. I believe in not hurting anyone's feelings but at the same time grow a backbone or get away from areas where you may be "offended" Like stay home, don't answer your phone, don't read the paper and for heaven's sake don't watch tv and most definitely do not get on a Message board.
I wouled suggest weeding your garden and talking to other family members and friends (if you have any) who also need to grow a backbone.
Yeah! You tell em'Originally Posted by Steelerlyn
You're absolutely right! People are so sensative and take everything personally. Gene upshaw probably laughed about it at first until he realized Gumbel was talking about him then he was like If anyone was to take offense to his comments it should have been Upshaw and Upshaw only.
