KANSAS CITY NEWSIE JACK HARRY'S 'GAYHAWKS' HOT MESS AFTERMATH!!!



Previously . . . We talked about the so-called "gayhawk" explanation . . .

Now let's just take a quick look at how the rest of the sports world witnessed the hot mess . . .

Sports Illustrated: Kansas City station stands behind Jack Harry after “Gayhawks” controversy

Deadspin: Kansas City Sportscaster Maintains He Didn't Call KU The "Gayhawks"

Huff Post: Jack Harry, Kansas City Broadcaster, Denies 'Gayhawks' On-Air Gaffe

The Advocate . . . WATCH: Sportscaster Denies Calling Kansas Jayhawks 'Gayhawks'

The media lesson here is that Jack Harry getting out ahead of complaints might have elicited more attention for the story but quickly diffused reactionary rage. Instead, the "gayhawk" debate people to rant against political correctness rather than taking aim at the veteran broadcaster.

I just listened to the clip on Yahoo. He said GAYHawks. I played it twice.

Queer Hawks, would have been acceptable subsitution, Jack slipped up this time

Oh geez, he fumbled over a word. Pun intended. If the team was appropriately named Chicken Hawks the flub would have never happened. He's a prodessuonal. It was an accident. It happens. There are far more important things to obsess over.

Agree, Byron. I watched it twice too.
Sounded like "gayhawks" to me.
Why doesn't he just admit it and move on? It isn't like the world is coming to an end.

What's wrong with gay hawks? Lawrence is a rather queer town. Everyone knows that. That's why it always votes blue. Local sports coverage on any station pretty much sucks anyways. This is a losing town. Sporting kc the exception. Chiefs did a rare feat this year too and the royals have a little hope. With that said when was the last time the royals went to the World Series or chiefs went to the Super Bowl?

Admit what you did. Admit what you did.

He's a 90 year old reporting on a job that passed him by years ago. The doof tries to dress and look like he's a 25 year old hipster. Wear socks with your shoes you old twat!

This is your little shit filled preppy soul on drugs. Bite me Gayhawks!

Totally agree with 9:01. He's an idiot who isn't clever enough to say "Gayhawks" intentionally. His trifocals probably made him misread his teleprompter. Why KSHB keeps him on is a mystery.

Give the old man a break. At least he didn't say San Fagsissco 69ers.

I am KU alumni and I have heard the word gayhawks for more years than dumb ass Henry is old and it don't bother me a bit. It's a term that was started by K State people probably because we say they are pussy's with a purple kitty. I mean a purple wildcat sounds very gay to me. The Jayhawk at least has some history to it. Yes I am even older than Henry is. Sports coverage in KC for the most part is a huge joke. And who the hell is this Byron guy and if he isn't even from around here why does he have to chime in on local affairs all the time. Go away you fool.

Gays sure are tolerant and forgiving people aren't they?

So 12:20 are you admitting you are gay?

KU is full of spoiled, entitled Johnson County brats.

How about them Green Bay Fudge Packers? When they play the Tampa Bay Fuckenrears it will be a battle to see who can better penetrate the line.

Just as many bratty Jo Co kids go to K State as KU

Kind of ironic that he denies saying "Gayhawks" yet there he is sitting in his underwear smiling with Gary Lezak in the pic?

Ms. 11:08

This is national news. As I said, I saw this on Yahoo.com. Here's a concept for you: freedom.

Jack Harry, doesn't he yap at KSHB ? If I'm not mistaken that's where that cow Christa Dubill grazes on donuts and biscuts and gravy at 4:30 and 10:00. Now that lil hottie Jadiann Thompson is a puffie. Love to give her a love lick. Back to Jack Harry. First, fuck the Pecker Hawks. Second, Jack Harry Twat is way over the hill. Dump the old bastard.

Byron, shut the fuck up.

KU has been known as Gay U forever just because it is a very welcoming environment for homosexuals.

And who's to argue that this year's men's basketball team isn't a pack of sissies?

As for admitting he said it, I wouldn't, the homosexual community would tear him to pieces unless he comes out of the closet and claims the sacred right of a minority to use slurs against themselves.

Hey Byron, I listened to it three times and what he's really saying is "Fuck Byron". Douchebag.

You shit heads have been telling me to shut up for four years now. You must have a learning disability.

All together now, everybody: "Everybody STFU!"

The higher a meth-who? fan climbs, the more he shows his ass.

Hard to be a hillbilly U fan from the dumbshit cracker conference and come of as anything but the inbred, mouthbreathing, homophobe you are. For christs sake, you can't even spell the name of your own state right.
