Some people have characterized ESPN’s Skip Bayless as the spawn of Satan, and that’s fine, but this asshole would argue that being such a prick wouldn’t hurt the credibility of statements he’d made about Troy Aikman’s sexuality. Bayless made the allegation of Troy’s policy of “pro-homo” in his new book, Hell-Bent: The Crazy Truth About The “Win Or Else” Dallas Cowboys. When pressed about his comments in an interview with The Starting Five, Bayless didn’t back down:
I wish I had sledgehammered [my statements] because it was the truth and everyone who knew what was going on inside the locker room told me the book was a terrific job and that I nailed it.
Because I did. It’s exactly what happened. All I heard from people around the country who didn’t read the book was, “You outed Troy Aikman?” I didn’t. The coach definitely thought he was gay and a lot of his teammates thought he was gay. More than that, they thought he was racist and they thought he was trying to get Barry Switzer.
I see nothing wrong with being a gay quarterback. I can only hope that someday, if this is true, that Troy will have the courage to come forward and fully reveal himself to a public that will accept him for who he is. But we’re not there yet, so let’s just point and yell, “Haha, you’re gay!”
