Kobe Bryant Appeals Fine…
Ya know, yesterday when Bryant apologized for his anti-gay slur, i thought everyone makes mistakes, i get, he apologized, was fined $100 grand, move on. Now he is appealing his fine and i have no respect for the idiot. First off he said the slur, plain and simple. Secondly appealing the fine only shows how sorry he is NOT. The apology meant nothing, he was obviously only trying to save face.
Kobe Bryant confirmed in an interview with ESPN radio Wednesday he will appeal the $100,000 fine against him for mouthing an antigay slur at a referee during Tuesday night’s game.
Bryant said the appeal is “standard protocol,” but told listeners of the Mason & Ireland show on ESPN 710 in Los Angeles that he’s taking responsibility for his words.
“The comment that I made, even though it wasn’t meant in the way it was perceived to be, is nonetheless wrong, so it’s important to own that,” the Los Angeles Lakers star said. “The concern that I have is for those that follow what I say and are inspired by how I play or look to me as a role model or whatever it is, for them not to take what is said as a message of hate or a license to degrade or embarrass or tease. That’s something I don’t want to see happen. It’s important for me to talk about that issue because it”s OK to be who you are, and I don’t want this issue to be a part of something or to magnify something that shouldn’t be.” deets here
