"It was a poor illustration of the example I was trying to give on the context, so I do apologize for that... I was trying to explain that whenever you have change into something that's been set in stone for so long, something that's been going for so long, that change always comes with a little resistance."

-- New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma, clarifying and apologizing for his recent remarks to the NFL Network's Andrea Kramer that he wouldn't know how he was "supposed to respond" if a gay football player looked at him in the locker room.
