James Faulkner

I know you are. But it’s missing the point completely. You’re focusing on the reaction rather than the action
The action is thoughtless at worst IMO. The reaction will be far more severe than required I'm sure. Only Faulkner knows whether he was deliberately trying to mislead people and if he was then he's silly, but it's not malicious, it's probably more childish if anything.

I guess he was trying to be funny/clever

Or given how long it took for the clarification, he wanted the attention.

Very odd
All his cricket colleagues congratulating him in the comments for being brave

Fairly poor taste and not funny I’d say

Whilst it's a misleading post, I think his version of events is believable and it's not his fault the world jumped to conclusions. He's quickly cleared the air, non-issue for me.
Its poor journalism like but the fact he has been with a lass before is irrelevant, I knew that already, but assumed he'd been keeping it secret

Coupled with the comments from his teammates saying congratulations for being brave et

its not the crime of the century but shows a pretty pathetic sense of humour

Well, is it really worth anyone being offended by this? I mean why should anyone be offended?
Yeah I think Smoker is right it trivalised quite an important issue for a lot of people

What's the deal with him being with a lass before? Have I missed that in the statement?

I don't know. I'm laughing my head off at all of this. Who hasn't sent a message that was loosely worded or one that wasn't misinterpreted?

Funnier than a cricket ball in the knackers anyway. :lol::lol::lol::lol:

Erm, very strange this. Kind of unsure of how I should really proceed on the matter.

So it turns out he isn’t gay, but in actual fact, if he’d have been clever - which it appears is beyond him - even though he isn’t gay, he may have been able to push this as some kind of positive force for good regarding the whole sexual persuasion side of things. In that it’s completely fine to be gay even though I’m not.......

However, his mishandling of this could land him in a lot of hot water - rightly or wrongly a lot of people won’t be impressed.

Normally I’d find this sort of snowflake baiting very funny and I probably still will have a bit of a laugh about it, but this could turn very ugly.

He has credited the LGBT community for their positive response, which saves a bit of face I guess.
