    Roger Goodell is a Bigot White Supremacist NFL Commissioner and the other 32 team owners are Racist Bigots for supporting, enabling, and profiting off the Hate Crime Culture that is promoted by the use of the Washington “Redskins” team nickname.
    End the ethnic Bullying and Hate Crime culture perpetuated by the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL owners by writing to your Senator or Congressman to strip the NFL from its tax exempt status and anti-trust status. As Taxpaying citizens of the United States, we demand that our government no longer support and provide benefits to organizations that promote Hate Crime, Bigotry, and Ethnic Genocide

    Best way ever to force everyone to STOP watching the Emmy Awards, and TV in general, altogether forever permanently, who hadn’t already stopped like everyone else. Bright move, Emmy Awards!!

    @Bill: No communist. When you come across that ocean to America we will show you what we think of your fake internet antiAmerican race rants. You will also find out that America won the war as we are winning this one. But, since you’ll never, ever come to America arguing with you over the internet is pointless.

    He will be a fabulous host. If you have ever watched him host the Tony Awards, you know he is fantastic.

    @Bill: I don’t like media sport, but even as they lose their audience with the new generation there is nothing so illicit about such things this troll “Bill” is going on about. From Redskins to White Sox to Red Sox and Braves to Pirates to Vikings there is nothing wrong or discriminatory, so trying to troll for politics is useless. Also, Washington WON the war, in case you were obviously taught differently in your schools over there. lol

  • BillJr

    @Bill: I agree, Bill. Sports are pretty racist. So is rap music. Let’s hope for a black boycott of both fields.

    Let’s have a gay old time.

    Betting they will serve tossed salad and underage boys in the back.

  • Award

    This guy is great and I’m sure he will be perfect for hosting these awards.

  • Dr. Z

    If he wasn’t openly “gay” – he’d be a barely-known former child star. Hollyweird is promoting him for politically-correct socia-cultural reasons.

    It makes no difference to me…just pointing it out.

  • Mark

    I have nothing against the guy, he is one of the better actors in the field of losers… but they use him to promote GAY GAY GAY. Enough already, we get it. Please stop…you will win more acceptance by keeping it to yourself and just doing your job. Hollywood should focus on improving the quality of productions and stop promoting extreme agendas. People have abandoned the liberal media because it is so hateful and offensive. What I find most offensive about liberal media is that it is so anti-white and anti-american. If Hollywood wants to see what works, watch the old movies on TCM. Also, watch some of the old reruns on TV Land. They are not irrelevant because millions are still watching them. Traditional America works. The “new” way is a complete failure.

  • Jay

    @Mark and @Dr. Z Neil Patrick Harris’s success in recent times is due to his performancer as the womanizer Barney Stinson on the HIMYM. It has nothing to with him being gay. He happens to be really good at hosting awards shows and getting the desirable ratings. The show’s premiere even predates his public coming out.

    If anything, this is in part to promote the final season of HIMYM, as he hosts the night before the final season’s premiere.

    @middle-aged hippie:

    Neil Patrick Harris – THAT’s entertainment :-D

  • Brian Astby

    I’ll be glad when Hollywood gets over their love affair with gaymos.

  • Brian Astby

    @Jay: He only gets the gig because of his love of p3nis in the anvs

    @BillJr: They will as soon as they master the verb “To Be” and the preposition “They”
