Calling a guy a "gay-a-- f-----" on XM radio. What a tool.

If you can catch a football, people will put up with your shet.

The show is broadcast on Eminem???s hip-hop channel on the satellite network.

In a recording of the call, which was first posted on the sports gossip blog deadspin.com, Jackson apparently was asked if he had ever had his "[****] knocked around in the dirt".

While the host scoffed, Jackson replied "What type of question is that? Say 'no ****,' gay-a-- f-----."

Jackson's comments come only days after former Giants' hero David Tyree said that he believed legalizing gay marriage in New York would be the first step towards society devolving into anarchy.

Widely beloved by Eagles fans, Jackson appeared on a February showing of "The View" to denounce bullying, with an emotional teen fan.

His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, and Sirius did not immediately return a request for commen

The key...is holding on to it until AFTER you've crossed the goal line.

Yeah, don't you just love how we minimize things today with our palatable terminology?Calling someone a "gay-a-- f-----" is a little more than a "gay slur".I'm surprised he didn't threaten to pop a cap in dat g-- a-- mutha f----az head.

Read some of the posts on this site, although it isn't radio,it is open to anyone to read, ...what he said is pretty minor...

He has the right to say it, but has to deal with the consequences.

No problem there, as long as you also defend the right of sponsors to drop him, and his team or the league to deal with it as they see fit.

DeSean is an expert on such matters of the heart.

you have to admit some of them make for interesting reading. I have never listened to the show because i am too cheap to pay $13-14/month to listen to the radio when hundreds of stations are free, but a pay to listen station featuring Rude Jude and Lord Sear seems like it might occasionally push the limits of "Political Correctness"

I'm not a fan of letting anything and everything be spoken over the airwaves or in a venue that reaches a broad demographic.

DeSaun's lack of discretion in a very public broadcast venue only serves to promote stupidity.

Teenage kids listening probably think he's cool, moms and dads probably think he's a tool.
