  •  Not the first comments by a Packer on gays (5+ / 0-)

    In 1998, Reggie White infamously denounced homosexuality while speaking before the WI State Legislature. His controversial remarks were widely condemned by the Packers and CBS who cancelled a $6 million contact with White to appear as part of their NFL Pre-game show.

    What a difference between then and now. Leroy was and always will be a fan favorite here in WI, moreso than probably any other living Packer with maybe exception to Bart Starr (Brett Favre burned a few bridges here). BTW, it's pronounced leh-ROY, even though he was called LEE-roy while growing up.

    Sorry Markos, I have to add, as any schoolchild here in Wisconsin is taught at an early age... "The Bears still suck!" wink, wink...
