His apology (particularly the second half) was somewhat nonsensical.
“I am sincerely sorry that my comments have caused controversy and protests among gay groups. Homophobia is not a point of view that I share. I didn’t want to offend anyone and I absolutely don’t want to put a person’s sexual freedom under discussion. I only said that it was a problem which was nothing to do with me and I don’t let myself express judgments on other people’s choices, which should all be respected.”
What the hell does “I only said that it was a problem which was nothing to do with me” mean? I hope there aren’t queers on the team because being queer would probably be hard for them? I hope there aren’t queers on the team, because the rest of the players are assholes? I hope there aren’t queers on the team, because how could they focus on football when they’re too busy being gay, which by the way has nothing to do with me? Mr. Cassano, care to elaborate?
