Hey 'Juicy'....you're a guy, so not quite so good a judge of 'ugly men.' Charles is not ugly....not gorgeous and hunky...but definitely not ugly.

I could be because American society doesn't like unvarnishes truth. Same reason that we call law-breaking illegal aliens "undocumented workers," and terrorists "oppositional combatants" or whatever similar name Obama gave them and insisted government call them when he first took office. It's called "political correctness," even if it has nothing to do with politics. I think it may have all started with with 'mentally challenged' versus the 'R' word. See, I can't even say it now, since it was changed so long ago (and in this case, rightfully so). Regarding Barkley's straightforward characterization of the women who are being discriminated against, I think he just calledf it exactly as it is. I'm a woman, and I don't object.

Tyson, yes. Charles? No. He's definitely not ugly, but also not a knock out, either.

If you ever doubt that many of the coaches hate the half-time banalities they are forced to partake in, just watch the Spurs' coach, 'Pop' Popovich during an interview sometime. Occasionally, his true feelings really, really show and he gets just a wee bit short of insulting to the interviewer. You can always see him struggling to be civil. Most of us fans here don't blame him at all, as these 'do nothing' interviews add absolutely nothing to the game nor entertainment.

There are a lot of you here who are attacking Charles Barkley for his remark. Have you really read all he had to say? I don't think so, or maybe you you don't understand correctly what you read, but in any case, he was making a case FOR women who are less attractive being hired in the sports industry as commentators or whatever. He was simply pointing out the negative BIAS AGAINST such women, not trying to insult them. I'm obviously a woman, and I heard him as being on ALL women's side, attractive or not, thin or not, etc.  He put it out there in a very straightforward manner, so as to avoid any misinterpretation of his remarks, but unfortunately, the less attentive still misunderstood. How frustrating that much be for Charles. I'm behind you, guy! Thanks for speaking out for us women.
