Portis Apologizes For His Comments On Dogfighting

Clinton PortisClinton Portis is apologizing for his comments that he made on May 21 in regards to dogfighting.

He says: “I didn’t know it would affect that many people, didn’t think what I said was that offensive. But after doing research and seeing how serious people take this, I shouldn’t have made the comments.” He says that now he realizes that some people “are crazy over pets”.

I guess that’s an apology. Sort of.

    That’s an apology? I guess he agrees with Duane. We’re “over the top.” Sorry, pal, apology not accepted. You’re still an a$$.

  2. catmom5 says:

    Sounds like he’s only sorry that some people objected, not that what he said was WAAAAAAY out of line. Pathetic!!!

  3. Lisa says:

    “Some people are crazy over pets” ??? No……………..some people know how to love. Obviously this “person” [maybe I should say “piece of humanity”] doesn’t know how to love anything or anyone.

  4. Bill says:

    I would like to see what Portis’s version of “research” is. Jerk!

  5. Mike says:

    If he had said he didn’t understand the seriousness of dog-fighting, and that he did some research and now understands how cruel and vicious it is, then we would accept his apology.

    But to apologize because he didn’t realize he would offend people is as bad as his original statement.

    He obviously does not get it, and therefore it is a meaningless apology.

  6. Steve says:

    Another staged, insincere mea culpa.

    Don’t want to spoil those potential endorsement deals.

  7. Gindy says:

    He’s a liar and is simply saying that to get his life back to where it was before he opened his stupid mouth.
    Good luck with that, idiot. You don’t deserve the money and fame you have. Worthless piece of biomass.

  8. Kathy says:

    That was not an apology, sounds more like he’s blaming the rest of us for being crazy.

  9. Sky Eyes Woman says:

    “Crazy over pets”, huh? Whatever. Please just STFU and get off my TV, you sorry excuse for a man. Football sucks anyway.

    You know what? I really don’t see anything wrong with drop-kicking a toddler down a flight of stairs. Wanna bring your kids over, Portis? We’ll put them in a box and watch them fight until they’re ripped to pieces. Don’t tell me you’re gonna whine and cry about it, you’re just crazy over kids.

    What a jackass!

  11. Stefani says:

    “I guess I just didn’t realize that it’s a big deal to force two living beings to rip each other apart until one is dead or nearly dead, and laugh at it and consider it sport. After all, it’s what they did in the Roman coluseum.”

    Pig.

    I am never watching another redskin event unless he is fired.
