Henderson and Michael Sam

Marshall Henderson had been quiet on Twitter during the season but jumped back on in a big way today with Michael Sam as his platform.

Henderson ripped ESPN for showing Sam, the Missouri defensive end who after the season announced he was gay and was drafted Saturday by the Rams, kissing another man.

This was Henderson’s second tweet on the topic. I didn’t post the full first tweet because of some language. His first tweet said, “My brothers are 7 and 11 and saw that !!!”

After a number of negative responses to his opinion, Henderson posted this:

During Henderson’s experiment, Ole Miss AD Ross Bjork had this to say on Twitter:

    Good for Henderson.This was a plan by the NFL to have the Rams to draft him have him kiss his lover on national TV.It was a put job.

    • Killer_Beeze

      I’ll bet the farm that the majority of folks (if polled) would also be disgusted seeing an NFL player kissing another man (in this case his boyfriend) on national TV. This is a progressive liberal’s dream: to have gays in the NFL. What’s next? A lesbian kicker? Boy, THAT would be a first.
      Liberals will continue to push their agenda if normal people sit back and do absolutely nothing in fear of being called HOMOphobic.

    yum

    • NigeI Gruff

      wait. no. i didn’t mean that the way it sounds.

      • a name

        I take it you were a big supporter of “don’t ask, don’t tell”…

        • NigeI Gruff

          are you asking or telling?

          • a name

            Don’t think I was the one said “yum” to the blog about 2 men kissing…

          • NigeI Gruff

            who was?

          • a name

            Since you’re so big into “avatars” look back. You forgot to change it on the post you made when you said “yum”. YOU’RE BUSTED! LOL

          • NigeI Gruff

            busted? bah, I’m not even a little cracked. You’d have to have a warped mind to think that typing “yum” when you’re eating a bag of Cookie Dough filled Oreos has anything to do with “don’t ask don’t tell”. You bears are all messed up in the mind. Are you the same one that is going around trying to impersonate me?

  • JB

    DISGUSTING!!!Rams as well

  • Nigel Gruff

    Sounds like Henderson didn’t get the memo that Bjork sent…although I do agree with Henderson.

    • NigeI Gruff

      I am flattered by your imitation.

  • Nigel Gruff

    This gaydom is right at home at the new ole miss…just another political correctness issue. It is disgusting, JB!! YOU’RE right on it as usual. Should be ashamed.

    • NigeI Gruff

      imposter!

  • Nigel Gruff

    The new ole miss,where the guys wear scarves and carry purses….its sacrilege.

    • NigeI Gruff

      imposter! caught you!

  • Nigel Gruff

    I have many groupies that like my comments so much…it’s flattering to have fans that have so much adoration for me, they actually believe they are me!!! LMAO!!!

    • NigeI Gruff

      and you seem to want to be me. but you missed out on my avatar change. you have been exposed.

  • Nigel Gruff

    You’re right JB…there’s something amiss with the higher ups at the political correct university of Mississippi. Let the so so coaches stay and the winners get rung up.

  • Nigel Gruff

    Last time I was on the campus of Political Correct University, the guys were wearing Cuban shoes, scarves and purses…I guess that’s what Ole Miss has become.

    • a name

      Exactly when was the last time you were on the MSU campus? I find it hard to believe you saw what you say on any campus in MS, but MSU has got to be the PCU you’re talking about because they are the only ones who cover up any sense of political incorrectness. Ole Miss reports the bad and the good.

      • Nigel Gruff

        Yeah right!!! Ole Miss is the king of sweeping, covering and denying any and everything.

        • a name

          Lol. You wouldn’t know at state. They NEVER report ANYTHING. I.ve figured out you. You’ve never set foot on the ole miss campus. And before you say it, all of your observations are just based on second hand info. Are you even out of high school yet?

  • Nigel Gruff

    So…get rid of winning coaches, keep mediocre basketball and football coaches, say it’s okay for men to be with men, oust colonel Reb, ditch the traditions, but allow drunkenness….Wow! Holy Toledo.

  • Nigel Gruff

    Hang false banners, proclaims untrue championships, put a noose around the neck of a cultural iconic statue, show no respect to the police, drive drunk and get a slap on the wrist, beat a guy senseless and deny…deny…deny…that’s what PCU is known for.

    • NigeI Gruff

      Still pretending to be me I see. Well, at least now everyone can see which is the imposter and which is me since I changed my avatar and you are still using the old one. Everyone ignore the imposter.

  • Nigel Gruff

    When my granddaughter saw Sam kissing that other man, and I use that term loosely, she asked did that guy play for Ole Miss? She’s 13. Kids say the darndest things, don’t they?

    • a name

      Hope you had a small amount of pride in MS and told her that was not something you see here. But like most MSU pricks you probably are the one who promoted that idea to her. That is, if you even have a child or grandchild. I’m sure that bastion of masculinity at the udder school has never seen a gay student enroll… at least not one anyone would ever hear about.

  • Doug

    I’m what way is Sam’s relationship affecting you? How is your life different today? Did it take you longer to get to work? Did your taxes increase? Anything?

  • Nigel Gruff

    Doug, what y’all do in the privacy of your rooms is none of my business, but when it’s displayed for young impressionable kids…I draw the line. Keep your gayness away from please.

  • Nigel Gruff

    I’ve been going to games at State for a long time and never seen guys there wearing nurses, scarves or those Cuban shoes.

  • Nigel Gruff

    I went to Egg Bowls at Oxford each of the last three times the Egg Bowl was there and all three times saw guys? with nurses, scarves and clickety, clickety shoes…and limp wrists…it’s the Ole Miss way at PCU…HEHE

  • Nigel Gruff

    Your pitiful attempts to thwart my genius have failed!! I cannot be defeated. But, by all means, keep trying. It’s very entertaining to see you make a fool of yourself. Hehe.

  • Nigel Gruff

    I think you’re better with your new name. Much better than Karl, cid, bulldogloser, anime, maryspitune..etc.

  • Nigel Gruff

    You don’t have jack figured out. I sat under the big screen and watched State get beat 45 0…froze in 12 …with a noisy helicopter behind the stands. Sat through snow flurries in 94…rain in 98..Saw the immaculate deflection in Jackson..I could go on…been to a bunch of ‘em…more than your lame a$$.

  • Nigel Gruff

    Saw REM at Thad Smith coliseum in 1989…Michael Stipe wore a stripped long sleeve shirt…it was the Lifes rich pageant tour..the Indigo girls opened for REM…I’ve been on campus more than I care to remember.

  • Nigel Gruff

    I was there for the Kevin Sluder scoop n score 63 yard touchdown…that was a great game…rainy and foggy…great win for State.

  • Nigel Gruff

    The snow flurries may have been in ’96…it was cold as a witches heel. State’s QB was Eric Plump…he got sacked so hard it put him to sleep…who was the Rebel’s QB? Lane?

  • Nigel Gruff

    Y’all just keep proving my point for me. It’s like autopilot. It’s the black bear way. Whenever you can’t debate, you resort to farse and name calling.

  • Nigel Gruff

    The black bear will never change. Oh, we were cheated, the NCAA has it in for us and we did nothing. You’re a prick. He is an impostor. It’s really an introspective look into the mind of black bears.

  • Killer_Beeze

    PA…any way you can ban Nigel (and all his aliases) from your board? This person is looney tunes and really clutters it up with inane comments.

    • NigeI Gruff

      why is there always an anti-free-speech person on every internet board? with tsun crawling with lawyers, you’d think that blackbears would know the constitution.

  • Nigel Gruff

    Hey KBZ, this other Nigel Gruff better go away. Apparently he is unfamiliar with the new laws concerning identity theft. Yes, it does pertain to message boards and I can prove the date that I established ownership of this name. So if his date of name is after mine, then he can be sued.

    • NigeI Gruff

      lol! you’re funny. If all blackbears were as funny as you I might get along with yall better.

    • NigeI Gruff

      Here, I’m going to go back to the other avatar and explain to you how silly your post is just in case you were actually trying to be silly. So everyone knows, from here on out we’ll both look the same so you’ll just have to use your best judgement to decide which one is me and which one is the imposter.

      • NigeI Gruff

        ok, consider this. Irony of ironies, the imposter says that I’d better go away because he is protected by “identity theft laws”. Let’s supposed for a second that he really was the real Nigel and he really does think that identity protection and other legal protections are important online. Look at that photo that he and I both share. Do you think that is a picture of him? Do you think that he owns the copyright to that photo? Hmmm, he’d better look at those four fingers pointing back at him. If he believes that, then he truly proves that he is an ignorant blackbear. I still think that he is being a comedian though.

  • Nigel Gruff

    If your familiar with the ESPN host of First Take, Skip Bayless, then you know about his suit he recently won when someone took his name on Twitter. I have already check the law and it is clear on this article of identity theft on social media.

  • Nigel Gruff

    KBZ, I agree with your take on the Sam deal. It’s not something that should be shown on TV. Then you have an ultra liberal president applauding this? Really? Guess I’m too old to understand what’s going on, but I find it appalling.

  • Nigel Gruff

    This weekend will be exciting baseball…Alabama, State, LSU and the black bears are all in the mix. Doesn’t get much better. Shows how competitive SEC baseball is.

  • NigeI Gruff

    Can you imagine what it must be like when henderbrick and squidward get drunk together (you know it happens). Just imagine if anyone recorded one of those conversations.

  • Nigel Gruff

    I’m filing a DMCA takedown notice and a copywrite infringement notice which, according to my attorney are the proper steps. See ya soon, buddy.
