Packer's Mouth Goes Off Again

This has mostly been under the rader, but Billy Packer, who has a long history of loutish comments, told Charlie Rose "you always fag out on that one" when Rose jokingly offered to be a runner for Packer at the Final Four. Packer is an insightful commentator, but he's also mean, graceless and has demonstrated bigoted behavior on more than one occasion. Isn't it time for him to watch the tournament on TV like the rest of us?

Language watch! We got a couple of e-mails like this - teach us to be young punks!

I am no Packer fan but I am his age and from the NE. In my youth fag out was not a sexual comment but denoted fatigue or not up for the job.
