CBS Sports' Seth Davis goes off on 'homoerotic' MMA, doesn't want his sons watching

Popular CBS Sports basketball analyst Seth Davis went on a Twitter rant this weekend decrying the pictures of 'two muscular bloody men in homoerotic fighting pose' and saying he didn't want his sons to watch MMA.

CBS Basketball analyst Seth Davis added his voice to the chorus of MMA naysayers with a pair of Tweets this weekend:

Looking on news sites showing picture of two muscular bloody men in homoerotic fighting pose….Sorry, I’ll never get this UFC thing.

— Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) November 18, 2012

Maybe I’m a prude on this but I’m also a dad. I don’t mind my sons watching boxing, but I wouldn’t want them watching a UFC bout. — Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) November 18, 2012

Despite Davis' decision to delete the Tweets in short order, the condemnation was swift and came from all corners. MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani responded and Davis apologized:

Just read respected CBB journo @sethdavishoops' take on MMA. Very disappointing, but not shocking. Many feel this way. Their loss. ...
— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) November 19, 2012

@arielhelwani The tweets were stupid and careless and you are 100 pct right to call me out. Appreciate and respect your work & passion.

Sounds like a closet homo that is ashamed that he loves the sausage and is scared his sons will follow in his footsteps and also love sausage, which they will.

The fact Seth Davis sees a picture of two bloody men fighting as "homoerotic" really only says something about him...and what's on his mind.

Pretty much all there is to say about it.

Except maybe that even if Davis is gay; even if his son is gay; So what?

Meh, he doesn't like MMA, that's fine there's no rule to say he has to like MMA but it just goes to show how frighteningly uneducated major sports media is on MMA.

Probably got a lot of negative feedback, deleted them and hoped it'd be okay if he apologized.
