Audio: Dexter Manley Joins Skip Bayless in Calling Troy Aikman 'Queer'

Seems Dexter Manley got into the whole Troy Aikman gay bashing theme on WTOP radio in DC this morning:

“Was it a big jinx that Troy Aikman was doing the game, the former Cowboy?” Manley was asked at the end of the segment.
“I think Troy was a queer,” Manley said.
The hosts immediately made it clear that this wasn’t a topic for humor, and encouraged Manley to step back.
“I’m sorry about that,” he said. “I take that back….I apologize.”

Thing here is Manley probably just didn't know what the word queer means. Here's the audio:

Dexter later apologized, via the Washington Post:

In an interview with WTOP radio Monday, while intending to be funny, I used a slur to refer to Troy Aikman. It was wrong and insensitive. Anyone that knows me knows that’s not who I am in my heart or mind. I want to apologize to Troy, but I mostly want to apologize to anyone else I offended. Like a lot of people in these times, I have to realize that what I thought was funny years ago doesn’t work now. I’ll do my best to make sure it doesn’t happen again and hope you will accept my apology.

Recall when AM SportsRadio 1310 pointed out that in Skip Bayless' book, Hell-Bent: The Crazy Truth About the "Win or Else" Dallas Cowboys -- ESPN's resident idiot also apparently claimed that Troy Aikman was gay. Troy was none too happy and not too sure that Skip wasn't actually the one who was homosexual.
