Default Re: Hasselbeck calls Roethlisberger a girl

If you read the whole article, Hasselbeck immediately says he was joking and obviously was just kidding around. No big deal. However, it is Exhibit A of how any pro athlete can't say anything in jest in public, because it's going to be taken out of context - even at an event like this. The unfortunate end result is the jock - clichés we get from players that amount to zero information from a typical interview. Maybe if fans and the media didn't jump all over these guys for every little thing they say, then the players would be a bit more likely to tell us what they really think, and give us more insight to what's really going on.
