Advocate reports that disgusting NFL coach is even more disgusting than thought

By Lucas Grindley

Missing from The Washington Post's coverage of Gregg Williams, an NFL coach accused of putting a bounty on opposing players' limbs, is any mention of a particularly alarming antigay comment its sports reporter discovered.

In a conversation Monday on Twitter with fellow reporter Dan Steinberg, Mike Wise reveals that he confirmed Williams "used gay slurs with the best of them," as one player put it. A representative for the Post points out that it mentioned that in its profile of Williams, a former defensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins and New Orleans Saints who is now with the St. Louis Rams and is under investigation for a habit of giving bonuses to players who have injured opponents on the field.

But Wise shares an offensive quote he confirmed with multiple sources but says to his coworker, "Some things don't make it into the family newspaper, you know that." Executive editor Marcus Brauchli is known in the newsroom for his aversion to printing content that might be seen as offensive.

In the incident that was left out of print, a player misses a run-read and Williams barks, "You dumb, stupid [MF], you went in the wrong hole. You went in the wrong, [expletive] hole. We're not running an AIDS convention here."
