Strange story from TMZ.com.  The website spoke with Kansas City Chiefs RB Larry Johnson's agent, Peter Schaffer, and provides this quote, which they claim comes from Schaffer:

"We know the N-word is unacceptable, that's not disputable -- but f*g? I'm learning that there's a segment of our society that finds it offensive and that it should not be used. I didn't realize that, but I do know now..."

OK, what?

We can not verify that these are Schaffer's words at this point but TMZ.com is reporting it so I'm going to withhold my judgment on this for now.

LJ hired Schaffer this offseason after former agent Alvin Keels parted ways with him in late October following LJ's previous suspension.
