Stupidity or contempt...Does it matter?
Billy Packer's reason for using "fag" -- that he was using a much lesser-known definition of the word, reflects a terrible lapse of judgment by a broadcast professional who should know the power of common language.

Do either one of these broadcasters deserve one more minute of airtime?
