Apparently in the nation’s capital people are not aware of the hatred between sheep herders and cattle ranchers. Uh, they hate each other. Ever heard of the Lincoln County Range Wars? Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett, and all the actual History? All of that was about sheep versus cows. There’s a range war in Arizona that I wrote about that was even bigger and bloodier. It set Arizona statehood back 30 years it was so violent. The simple truth is anyone who calls a sheep herder a cowboy is out of his freaking mind. The word is cowboy, and it implies working with bovine. For those not in tune with the Latin, that means cows. The silliest thing about this remains that it was a movie, not real life. Let’s talk about real life.
First of all let’s put to rest the Troy Aikman allegations. Those were started by none other than Skip Bayless. You want to know why he’s so bitter against Dallas? Folks he lost his job because of those allegations. His own fault for printing lies. That’s right, it isn’t true as has been proven many times over. The weak stuff about “Tony Homo” is about as 6th grade as it gets. Oh wow, you changed a letter in his name. How original.
I told you there was truth to be shared to expose this weak smack. Let’s share it. The first athlete to ever “come out of the closet” was RB Dave Kopay in 1975. Dave played for 5 teams in a 9 year career. He wrote a book after coming out wherein he revealed he had a homosexual relationship while a member of the Redskins, with a teammate on the Redskins, Jerry Smith. Jerry Smith was an All Pro TE who played for the Redskins for 13 years. He was the first professional athlete to die from AIDS.
Now, I’m not suggesting either of these players should be bashed for their lifestyle, and certainly not for Smith’s death. I’m merely suggesting that it’s rather stupid to sling mud about homosexuality when probably the dirtiest mud is on your team. What’s more damning here folks? A sophomoric diatribe about “Tony Homo,” or an actual documented homosexual relationship? In fact, according to Dave Kopay, the Assistant General Manager of the Redskins in his years there “came out” after he left the team. So this homosexuality they joke about extended from the locker room to the front office on their team.
