Okay, now that the media is jumping on the crybaby bandwagon with this, let's hear it.
Was "the skit" offensive? Innappropriate? Which is more racially disturbing - the video or Tony Dungy saying the video is racially disturbing?
Discuss.

personally, I didn't see the skit, but I have seen several clips of it...and I don't think it was offensive at all...maybe a little inappropriate(and that's pushing it)....The media is so full of hypocrites and scum waiting on the next story that is sickens me...If that was any other player(black or white), this wouldn't even be any issue...but since it's the "controversial" T.O, everyone is up in arms...The media hates an athlete that talks the talk and walks the walk which is exactly what T.O. is doing...He is thumbing his nose at them and I love it....Why isn't there an outcry when Levitra of Cialis sponsors the halftime show or runs their commercials 99 times during games??? I hate the media with a passion, but this is just out and out stupid of them....

Re: MNF

The worst thing about the whole thing is the moment Tony Dungy opened his mouth. I was offended by what he said. Was I offended by the skit? No. It was a little inappropriate, but I assume that is what Desparate Housewives is all about.
However, I think that if you change the channel really quick once you saw it and hide it from the kids, they'll try to find it anyway on the Internet or on TV or something. I think it's better to just explain it was fake.
Either way the skit was stupid

Here is a link to it: http://www.ifilm.com/ifilmdetail/2656474?ifilmp=99
I too thought the skit was st00pid, but all this fallout and attention are beyond st00pid.
There is more skin (and more attractive skin) in your average shampoo or lotion commercial, and as much suggestion in the "organic experience" shampoo commercials - whomever makes those.
Was it inappropriate? I guess that depends. I wouldn't say inappropriate, just dumb.
If you don't like it, change the channel. Are there seriously "mothers" out there that claim that skit is worse than what they subject their kids to with daytime soaps? That's even if they have daytime mothers. Who knows what they are subjected to at daycare.
The absolute most rediculous part was when Tony Dungy destroyed any respect I ever had for him. Sure, his Colts are a great team. He's even a good coach. But STFU Tony, you showed your true racist colors by popping off.

What's truly funny is that ABC is getting EXACTLY what they wanted. Massive press for that show. Well, both shows really.

Re: MNF

What's up with Tony Dungy? He seems like a nice guy, and I like his coaching style, but I don't get where he's coming from trying to make this about race (did Jesse Jackson put him up to this?)
About the skit, yes I think it was inappropriate. Don't get me wrong, I didn't get all up in arms and call ABC and the FCC or anything, but I think it was out of place. Is the target audience for Desparate Housewives the same as that of Monday Night Football? Overall, I seriously doubt it.
And if kids were watching, A) it's probably not the worst thing on TV that night, and B) if their parents have a problem with it they should talk about it and explain it (ie, do their job and not rely on the FCC or whoever).
And despite (or because of) all the controversy, I'm sure someone at ABC will get a raise/promotion for this one.
