Bon Jovi issues apology to fans

Jon Bon Jovi made an obscene gesture during last night's Soul game against the Georgia Force. Today, he sent an open letter to the fans of his club.

Dear Soul Fans,

I just want to address my actions at last night’s Soul vs. Georgia Force game. As everyone knows my passion for our game and my passion for our team runs very deep and last night it got the best of me. I was caught up in a moment and my emotions took over. While I do not want to rehash everything, I addressed the matter with the media, the AFL, ESPN and the Georgia Force. I never should have done it, I didn’t mean it and I am sorry. I would hope that this incident will not tarnish our team, our league, our partners and most of all our great fans.

Why are they making this such a big deal? Just because he's a well known/loved celebrity doesn't mean he's not human. And I've seen other coaches do worst things, and you never hear anything about them. We've all made mistakes, at some point in our lives. At least he's honest by recognizing he did wrong, and even offered an apology. Some people don't even take responsibility for their actions. He did! That's why I've admired him for over 20 years, as a fan. And I'm sure others feel the same way I do. We support his team and all he believes in.

Jon, being the person that he is, took responsibilty for his actions. I think his apology was necessary to keep peace with "everyone", including himself.But the incident should not tarnish any of the above mentioned in his letter. I truly respect Jon for admitting to a mistake,whether it was right or wrong. That is why I love Jon so dearly and have been a supportive fan for over 20 years.It takes a bigger man to admit to a "so called" mistake.PS His "Black Belt" wife probably beat the $&*! out of him when he got home!!HA HA
