Webb, when discussing her reaction to Musburger's comments about her as well as AJ McCarron's mother, told Lauer: “I think the media has been real unfair to him. I think that if he would have said something along the lines of we were hot or sexy or made any derogatory statements like that, I think that would have been a little bit different. But the fact that he said we were both beautiful and gorgeous, I don’t see why any woman wouldn’t be flattered by that. So, I think that they’ve been a little bit unfair to him.”

 

Lauer followed up, asking Webb, “So no reason for ESPN to apologize in your opinion?” Webb doesn't believe so, saying, "You know I don’t think it was needed, honestly. I mean, of course I appreciate it but at the same I don’t think that I needed an apology.”

I was watching the game when Musberger made his comments, and there was NOTHING wrong with what he said. ESPN is a pussy-whipped politically correct bunch of idiots. They probably got a single outraged letter from some lesbo feminazi group that hates all attractive women on principle, and caved to it.

 

Douchebags.

I guarantee if it had been a black sports announcer who made the comment it would've been a non-issue. Funny how anyone can do or say anything in this country and get away with it as long as they aren't a white straight male.

Part of it is a lot of people have nothing better to do but bitch and complain, try to live off everyone else for little or nothing and try to drum up attention for themselves for something that has nothing to do with them.

Spot on. These days, there are so many people out there looking to be offended. They want to find things to complain about, which is pathetic.

 

If you were to tell a joke about black people that is genuinely funny rather than abusive, it would often be a white person that is 'offended'. (I've seen it on training courses - someone makes a comment that, to try to come up with a vague example, maybe alludes to the fact that it might be easier for a black person to hide in the dark, or something stupid like that; possibly funny in context and not said with any malice. The black person/people seemed fine with it, but one or two of the prim-and-proper white folks looked mortally offended.) However, it's okay for a black person to make a joke about black people, or indeed a black person to make a joke about white people. Admittedly, back in the 80s there was a lot of racism about and those jokes probably would have been abusive and cruel. But differences between people can be funny ... we're all the same species, but look completely different from each other - lighten up, people!

    • Try the first 3...s/t , One Step Closer , Dance In The Fire...but they do have a couple of best of's...Decade I & II...as you say the studio albums contain filler but some good quality stuff also.
    • FOREIGNER’s MICK JONES issues statement: “Fans will have become very aware that for some time now, I have not been performing onstage with the band. A number of years ago I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. I want everyone to know that I am doing alright, however, l've always liked to be at my best when performing onstage, and sadly at present find that a bit difficult. I'm still very much involved in the background with Foreigner and remain a presence. Parkinson's is a daily struggle; several of my friends are also dealing with the disease. The important thing is to persevere with the loving support of my family, and remind myself of the wonderful career l've had in music. I thank all the fans who have supported Foreigner throughout the years and continue to attend our concerts. Please know I appreciate your support; it always means so very much to me, especially so at this point in my life.”
    • Does anyone have some recommendations on where to start with this band? It seems like every album I try listening to has some good songs but also a lot of filler...
    • Good news, I really like Confess :-)
    • Great band and they've been on fire since they got this vocalist but that's not a great choice for a single IMO. It just kind of meanders along.
    • Good call. He's a bloody good keyboard maestro let's be fair.
    • Vinyl only bonus tracks pisses me off. Why? A cd could fit the bonus tracks far easier. Jerks. I'm annoyed about that.
    • New song 'Defiance' from the album of the same name (out April 19th). Tracklisting: 1. From The Start 2. Defiance 3. Feelin' Lucky 4. I Surrender 5. Forever In My Heart 6. Never Can Say Goodbye 7. One Heart 8. Give It Up 9. Nightswim 10. Standing Tall 11. Let’s See    
    • John says he is still in Confess as well.  This was posted on the Confess FB page about an hour ago: TO CLARIFY SOME STUFF!   Yes, i've joined forces with Crashdiet, which feels very exciting indeed. With that being said, I’m still very much a part of confess. Confess is my high school Rock'n roll band that i sang in for the past 15 years and i have no intentions of leaving or changing that. We're currently working on new music and hopefully have something new to show you guys pretty soon.   // John Elliot https://www.facebook.com/confessofsweden?mibextid=JRoKGi
