Larry Johnson weekend recap

New, 7 comments

A couple notes about the Larry Johnson story from over the weekend: Johnson's agent, Peter Schafer, told TMZ that he had no idea the word "faggot" bothered some people. "I'm learning that there's a segment of our society that finds it offensive."

Johnson apparently reached an agreement with the Chiefs that essentially cuts his suspension in half, meaning he gets back almost $300,000. All in a day's work.

The Kansas City Star wrote a good overview of some of the issues surrounding gays in the NFL and the repercussions of Johnson's comment. USA Today said it perfectly: It reflects how gays are treated in the NFL.
