    for this?



    I didn't see a thread on this, which is a whole new Packer issue and, quite frankly, I'm shocked this in't getting more press.

    That's because it happened on Charlie Rose, a late-night PBS show.

    Public Access shows in small towns have more viewers than Charlie Rose.

    This was Packer's usage:

    He can't be stupid enough, however, not to know what most people would think.

    That's not an original definition. It's been discussed on the radio here and some talked about it being a british phrase. Out.com interview Amechi and he said he'd never heard of it.

    Any definition you read online isn't going to be an original definition.

    I think Packer is wrong. Charlie Rose is indefatigable.

    Anyway, he could just as easily be using fag out as wimp out.

    Sure, and when some owner isnt paying a player enough, you could say he's jewing him.

    Actually, that's the definition as listed in Webster's Dictionary (the print version). And it does list it as having British roots.

    I didn't say it was right. I just think Packer would more likely be using fag as a euphemism for wimp.

    The Eminem defense.

    And as said on the radio around here, if Packer was using it to mean "tired out," how come he never said that Greg Oden was fagged out in the title game?

    Bottom line - this should earn the man some sort of punishment. Had he used the wod niggardly, he's fired (it's got an acceptable definition, look it up); Steve Lyons got fired for much less than this.

    I wasn't saying it was a word I'd use at all, or that it was right. I was just saying the definition given was an original and accurate one.
