TMZ spoke with a rep for the Lambda League -- who tells TMZ, "We have seen Kobe's apology and hope that it's sincere.  If he really wants to show us he means it he'll come to our next league game."

And get this -- Lambda reps tell us if Kobe takes them up on the offer ... they'll comp his tickets.

Hey Harvey, YOU HAVE TO LET IT GO TOO. Kobe made a stupid remark. yes, he did. BUT, the politcally correct POLICE ARE GETTING OUT OF HAND. f*ggot has also meant nerd, socially inept, etc. NOT AN OFFENSE FOR GAYS! and as a member of the socially inept, I am offended that THAT PARTICULAR REFEREE is put among US! AND WE, THE SOCIALLY INEPT WANT AN APOLOGY! AND BASKETBALL LESSONS! again, and do not throw any of us in the HOOPS AGAIN MR KOBE!!! (ONLY KIDDING!) You can throw Ralph and/or Herman in a much as you want, they are the ones with the pocket protectors. Also, the term 'f*ggot' Mr Kobe is out of date, some of us perfer MEECH or DAGGY, more international. Okay? Not going to listen are you? uhm, put down the wasketbasket please, please.... oh no! not again...

HARVEY.....I would like to say I am sorry to you for my earlier comments. I think now that you, DID NOT run this piece to support your brothers. I think you and a lot of other Gay Men are embarrased about this situation and you knew your readers would give the silly gay trouble makers the what for. HMMMMMMM real smart.
