Fisher tells Titans fans they need to lighten up

Jeff Fisher keeps it real, emphasis mine:

"It was for a very, very worthwhile cause, charity," Fisher said. "I was introducing Tony, just having fun with it and I really apologize if I offended anybody, but if you’re offended over the nature of that type of thing, then I think you need to rethink things.

I'm glad Fisher inserted that little "suggestion" at the end.

Once again, it's a charity event for a worthy cause. During the event, Fisher decided to jokingly welcome speaker Tony Dungy to the event by wearing a Manning jersey and poking fun at Tennessee's current 0-6 record.

It really is nothing, and if fans or the Titans ownership are not pleased by this, then (if I may be allowed to use a phrase of another generation) Titans fans and ownership need to get bent.

Seriously, IT'S CHARITY!

I can't believe I need to stress this, but charity is more important than friggin football. And if Fisher donning a Manning jersey helps earn a few extra bucks for a worthy cause, it's worth it and people should just shut up already. And if people think this is something that should get Fisher fired for, then by all means do it! I have absolutely no problem seeing the Titans cut off their nose to spite their face.

Hey, rumor is that hotshot play caller who "coaches" the Washington Redskins might be available soon. I bet you he won't show up to any charity events donning a #18.

Honestly, if anyone is still pissed about this thing, including (maybe) absentee Titans owner Bud Adams (he lives in Texas), they really need to rethink their priorities in life. I personally think most Titans fans, once they've gotten over the initial "What the hell is this?" moment have moved on and really don't care.
