Partly. Although he is documented as having the speech disorder.

I can't believe this thread hasn't been deleted after what has been going on in the blast furnace.

I noticed Sproles stutters a bit but he seems like a really nice young man. God Bless him for overcoming his disability and making something of himself!

No reason to close it. At least the majority of the posters in this thread have some sensitivity towards the man and don't find it funny poking fun at his unfortunate (and obviously embarrassing to him) disability.

Sure I call Romeo fat because he IS. Until I read documentation that he is overweight because of a medical condition, I have to assume he is a chubster because he CHOOSES to be. A good diet, exercise and 5 less cheeseburgers per day would go a long way in helping him to lose weight. His heart would thank him for it.

Everyone knows Tom Brady isn't gay. Again - if he WAS gay, it would be because he chose that sexual orientation. He chooses to play dikkie dunk with women and again, that's his preference.

Darren Sproles has had a speech impediment (a special needs disorder) since he was a small child. Making fun of his disability, or anyone else's disability for that matter, is not only ignorant but downright cruel.

I am 100% sure that when Mike created this board and specifically - the Blast Furnace - his intentions were not to make it open game for making fun of others' misfortunes. There was a former member here who made fun of my cancer because I dared to disagree with him. I didn't ban him - MIKE DID. Instead of making fun of the man, give him props that despite his disability, he attended and graduated from college and is fulfilling his dream.

But it's okay for you to use term like "stutter step" in here, but I can't make comment in the BLAST FURNACE. Okay, I see how it is. Will you condemn your own statement as you have condemned mine?

So is it also okay for me to make fun of people with cancer until I see documentation that proves they really have cancer? I am sorry HTG but that just doesn't make sense. It's a matter of opinion weather or not gay people have a choice. And when you joke about Brady being gay doesn't that make light of all gay people?

NO - I most certainly will NOT condemn my own statement as it was not intended to take a poke at this man's disability.

As far as my cancer is concerned - people who know me in real life on this board (and there are several) know that I've had 2 bouts of cancer since 1996. Don't you EVEN go there.

Apples and oranges on the Tom Brady "gay" issue. I am one of hundreds of posters - some of whom are pals of yours on this board - who have made the "Tom Brady is gay" statement knowing full well, as I do, that he isn't and AGAIN - IF HE WAS GAY - that is HIS PREFERENCE. We are going to have to agree to disagree on the "choice" issue.

I'm done arguing with you. You have your opinion and I have mine but let me make it perfectly clear that poking fun at another person's disability - be it another member, an opposing team's fan or a Steelers opponent - WILL NOT BE TOLERATED on this board. Period.
