Hampton to Apologize for Antigay Rant

Hampton to Apologize for Antigay Rant


Sports commentator and NFL Hall of Famer Dan Hampton is expected to kick off this weekend's episode of Pro Football Weekly with an apology for the antigay comments he made last week about the Dallas Cowboys.

"The Cowboys think they are Clint Eastwood; they're more of the Brokeback variety, if you know what I'm talking about," Hampton said on the show.

Hampton also said, regarding this Thursday's game with the New Orleans Saints, that the Minnesota Vikings "need to go down there and hit that town like Katrina." He apologized earlier this week for that comment.

Pro Football Weekly publisher Hub Arkush told the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation that Hampton will apologize on this weekend's show, saying, "It shouldn't have happened" and that such incidents "will not happen again."
