Joe Gibbs Was “Queer For Tight Ends,” According To Joe Gibbs
When old white dudes are talking, I feel like there are many phrases incorporated which take on a different meaning. So when Joe Gibbs had a double-take quote on ESPN Radio, I sort of have no idea what he actually meant.
Either that, or Joe Gibbs was being slightly offensive.
The former Redskins coach sat down for an interview with ESPN Radio and ESPN News. As Gibbs was coming into the studio, exiting was Charles Oakley, who had just been an on-air guest. While pleasantries and introductions were exchanged, things got a little weird. Here’s a transcript:
Russillo: Ryen Russillo, Bram Weinstein in again for Scott [Van Pelt] and out moves Charles Oakley and in comes the Hall of Famer Joe Gibbs, football coach, owner, the whole deal.
Gibbs: That’s a big dude that just left here, that guy’s a big dude.
Russillo: He looks like he could actually make the transition to tight end.
Gibbs: I think he could. I go to the pro basketball game every time and they always said I was queer for tight ends. I had more tight ends running out there with the Redskins, and I look out there and that’s where the tight ends are, they’re playing in the NBA.
So, what we have here is simple: Either Joe Gibbs meant something else when he casually said queer, or, the FCC, which is only six years older than Gibbs, has no bearings on what the old-timer says on-air.
