Brando Posts Controversial Collins Tweets

On Monday, CBS Sports’ college football host Tim Brando was among those not swept up in the milestone that was Washington Wizards center Jason Collins becoming the first active male professional athlete in a major American professional team sport to announce he is gay.

Had Brando stopped with that, it would have been a fair (if not popular) viewpoint on the situation. Only Brando decided to keep going.

This should have been the point where Brando realized he had pissed enough people off that he should get off Twitter for a while. Only he had to make a since-deleted “observation” that people like Collins were being held up on a pedestal at the expense of ... wait for it ... white Christian family men.

Dear Mr. Brando: Please stick to your studio and radio hosting duties. Leave the postulation on issues like this to someone who is much less foot-in-mouth prone.
