I wonder if Tony Dungy would consider running for President. At least he will take a stand.

"We're not trying to downgrade anyone else. But we're trying to promote the family -- family values the Lord's way," Dungy said.

Unacceptable to liberals everywhere including Big Media.

Tony is a class act. The Christian-hating gay lobby trying to attack Tony will fall flat on its face.

A couple of weeks ago, the media was hoping Tony would cancel this appearance.

Wishful and once again incorrect media.

He is unafraid.

Dungy has a RIGHT to express his beliefs, even if it means those beliefs are against homosexuality. The 'don't do as I do, do as I say' liberals simply can not fathom this.

"..."All types of families from across Indiana are Colts fans," he said. "We would like coach Dungy to meet with our families so he can better understand the negative impact (the resolution) will have on countless Hoosier families."..."

That sounds like a veiled threat. Understand us or your life will be made into a living he!!.

The more I read about Tony Dungee, the more I like him. Even though he's ex-Steeler,(I'm a Cowboys fan), that can be put aside when it comes to issues like this. TD is a class individual and I back him on this.

So now both of the queer season ticket holders will cancel their tickets? This will have a real impact on the Colt's revenue stream. How long will it take the Superbowl Champ Colts to re-sell season tickets?

Which team does a queer ex-Colt fan support? The boys by the bay, the 49'ers.

"Dungy is not the first public figure to draw fire for anti-gay comments."

Good old AP...nice hit on Dungy with this statement. I'd really like them to explain this statement further. Why does believing in a traditional definition of marriage make someone anti-gay?? When did the man ever say he was against or disliked gay people? And then further to compare Dungy and his beliefs to those of Tim Hardaway who said "I hate gay people"...horrible comparison.

While I agree with Dungy, I have to ask, "who really cares?" I don't look to NFL coaches for advice on family issues anymore than I'd look to a Hollywood actor for opinions on the war in terror.

There, fixed that.

"I doubt if he asked Bill Polian or (Colts owner) Jim Irsay or anyone else what they thought."


Well - good! Too many people feel they have to ask what others think before expressing their own thoughts. Gotta like this guy, he's not mean or strident, he just says what's on his heart to say.

Tony Dungy is entitled to his private opinions, just as you or I. Why does the liberal media insist on shutting him up?

The Colts are rapidly becoming my second favorite team behind my beloved Cowboys.
