    I am sure all those players who called for Sterling to be kicked out of the league for calling Magic a worthless N!gger will all rally around this referee and call for Rondo to be kicked out of the league

    :shitcoffee:

    "I am proud to be an NBA referee and I am proud to be a gay man," Kennedy told Yahoo Sports on Sunday night. "I am following in the footsteps of others who have self-identified in the hopes that will send a message to young men and women in sports that you must allow no one to make you feel ashamed of who you are."

    Kennedy declined further comment on his announcement.

    NBA commissioner Adam Silver delivered a statement of support for Kennedy.

    "I wholeheartedly support Bill's decision to live his life proudly and openly," Silver told Yahoo Sports in a statement. "Throughout his 18-year career with the league, Bill has excelled as a referee because of his passion, dedication and courage. Those qualities will continue to serve him well both as a game official and as a positive influence for others. While our league has made great progress, our work continues to ensure that everyone is treated with respect and dignity."

    Kennedy's announcement comes in the wake of the NBA's suspension of Sacramento Kings guardRajon Rondo, who game officials, including Kennedy, heard unleash a disturbing torrent of anti-gay slurs following his ejection from a game on Dec. 3 in Mexico City.

    After Kennedy, 49, ejected Rondo with consecutive technical fouls in a Kings loss to the Boston Celtics, Rondo defied league protocol to immediately leave the court and began stalking Kennedy, who had retreated to a far sideline of the floor.

    In the game officials’ report used as part of the NBA's investigation – which includes details provided to Yahoo Sports from National Basketball Referee's Association general counsel Lee Seham – Kennedy and fellow referee Ben Taylor described Rondo's post-ejection diatribe as including the statements: "You're a mother------- faggot. … You're a f------ faggot, Billy."

    Without a straight white male involved, how will the media know who to blame?

    It's a very touchy and strange topic to me because I happen to know alot of black people that ARE sadly out loud and proud homophobic under the auspices of their culture. New agey and progessive phrases/credos are regularly coined like "no homo" and "I don't play that gay shit!?!"

    In fact, ex point guard great Tim Hardaway got summarily removed from ABC/ESPN-Disney for exactly this a few years. This is MUCH worse to me!



    And ESPN NBA writer Chris Broussard made some really shitty comments and KEPT his job at the same mothership because it was protected by a Christian religious alibi I guess??

    "Personally, I don't believe that you can live an openly homosexual lifestyle or an openly premarital sex between heterosexuals, if you're openly living that type of lifestyle, then the Bible says you know them by their fruits, it says that's a sin. If you're openly living in unrepentant sin, whatever it may be, not just homosexuality, adultery, fornication, premarital sex between heterosexuals, whatever it may be, I believe that's walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ. I would not characterize that person as a Christian because I do not think the Bible would characterize them as a Christian."

    It's even more complex for me because Rondo is on my Fantasy Team and I need his triple double potential as I stand to set 14 team league assist records.

    Rondo. We put up with him in Boston by supporting him when he was young and pretty new. Gossip was, that he became a popular player and it went to his head. Trouble in the locker room among other players was frequent. Though the loss of all of our big four players left us pretty much in last place and then Doc Rivers left, they've managed to build a fairly good team this season. Without Rondo.
