Jets QB Mark Sanchez Mocked by Packers QB for GQ Fashion Spread

Sanchez

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers this week mocked a photo spread of Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez which appears in this month's GQ, appearing to suggest that it wasn't manly enough.

Said Rodgers of the photo, which shows Sanchez in Tommy Hilfiger sunglasses, white Gucci jeans, and a tight black Dolce & Gabbana tank top with a Gucci coat slung over his shoulder:

"Look at this, that's embarrassing. Page 94 of this GQ thing here, that's terrible."

Sanchez responded to the remarks:

"I think he was, obviously, making a joke out of it, and that's fine, giving me a good ribbing like the guys on our team. That's totally understandable, but I'm just happy that it ended up working out for a good cause and we got to partner with two great companies and one great charity, with Hugo Boss and Tuesday's Children. It worked out for the better and I can take a little razzing for the way it ended up. I know he's just joking around, so that's totally fine."

Duane Roggendorf sounds off in This is FYF:

In all seriousness, my primary irritation with all of this is the fact that it's even a story. Why? Because in being published, this just perpetuates the idea that Sanchez has anything whatsoever to be ashamed of in wearing clothes that fit, which further perpetuates a permeating element of sports culture in general - and, ultimately, the concept of manhood itself - which is the idea that our masculinity is constantly called into question and must be proved EVERY SECOND OF EVERY DAY by completing asinine "tests" like not flinching when someone punches you, denying you've ever enjoyed the sound of music that isn't Pantera or Santana(??) (or enjoyed The Sound of Music, period!) and a thousand other patently ridiculous "proofs" that have nothing to do with being truly manly and everything to do with being a lemming who'll follow anyone off a cliff for fear of being ridiculed.

As far as we're concerned, Sanchez should keep doing these types of photo spreads as long as he wants.

What's next, Tom Brady in a commercial for Uggs?

Dick's Just One of Kellan Lutz's Boys

Kellan Lutz shows off in the pages of GQ Style Australia, and lets their writer in on how he keeps himself company:

...any mortal man in the presence of a towering powerhouse like Lutz can’t help but feel like a yellow-billed oxpecker on the back of a great hippo. Which is why I’m relieved when Kevin the chihuahua suddenly scampers off to bark at something inside. “That must be Dick,” Lutz says, following Kevin into the house. “Dick’s one of my room-mates.” Lutz isn’t dating anyone at the moment, but still. Room-mates? “I like being around people,” he explains, “so I posted an ad on Craigslist saying I was looking for new blood.” He looks to see if I get the joke. “Dick came by and we liked him, so, yeah, now he’s one of my boys.”

More shots, AFTER THE JUMP...

Joint Chiefs Chair Mullen: U.S. 'Clearly Not Leading' on Civil Rights

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Admiral Michael Mullen is lauded in GQ's  Men of the Year issue.

Ana Marie Cox asks him about many of the issues facing the military today, including the impending repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" which he spoke out for earlier this year before the Senate.

Mullen In your "Don't ask, don't tell" testimony earlier this year, you argued that the policy is a threat to morale, because it undermines the honor and integrity of soldiers. What led you to that line of thinking?

I have a very difficult time leading an organization—one of whose pillars is integrity—and asking people to lie every single day they come to work.

It is widely accepted that the army's decision to integrate pushed the culture at large closer to acceptance of civil rights. Do you think a repeal of DADT could have a similar effect?

On the issue of integration, the military led society. With respect to this issue, we're clearly not leading. There are many institutions throughout the country that have made this decision some time ago. So in terms of the direct comparison? I'd say that back then the military was in the lead, and right now I think society is in the lead.

What do you think is the biggest practical obstacle to repeal?

Actually, I don't know that at this point. There are a bunch of areas that have to be resolved: housing benefits, those kinds of things. What I'm most concerned about is whether or not a change like this would impact readiness or unit cohesion, retention, or recruiting. Those are the areas that we're focused on. I just don't know the answers yet. But if the law changes, there's no question we'll follow it. Absolutely.

Here is Mullen's statement at DADT hearings earlier this year, if you missed it.
