Why do you hate me? :(
Bee, I don't hate you.
I just dont understand why the gay community is so hell bent on pushing these players to come out. What is the real intention here? Pretty soon were gonna have to list our sexual preference on job applications.
Really...the gay people on this board - please explain.
The next step will be private shower stalls. Watch.
Its five o'clock somewhere.
Ahh, yes. Jeff Garthia.
Youre always going to get opposition from the ultra religious gay haters, but no one really cares what they have to say anyways.
Why should people have to hide their sexual orientation at all? That's why this is such a huge deal. Professional sports are about as macho as you can get. Testosterone fueled, ultra-competitive, manly, all of this. We all know pro athletes have this image as sexual beings who can get laid anytime and anywhere they want and a gay athlete is the antithesis of this hetero image.
And in light of the recent support for gay marriage by those on the Right and the cases in the Supreme Court, this is a watershed time for the gay community.

I really hope one of them is a center and that team's QB is all like "yo bro... we're gonna switch to a shotgun set exclusively."
I actually assumed a lot of teams already had this. Big leagues. This ain't the YMCA.
I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
WRONG. Against the law.
Drunk opposing fans will be all over it. Guaranteed.
I just don't see this happening other than a few isolated incidents. There may be comments in private etc but I think players will stay away from this publicly for the most part. They will get crucified by the media and public and they know it.
Didn't Braylon get caught on Belle Isle by DPD while a guy was blowing him at 3 AM. I believe this was on the news last year.
This has been rumored.
yea, that's her. If the dude is gay he sure has a great cover.
since the thread started by bigot SpartyOn82 is gone, this seems like a decent place to post this.

He said NFL. Mike "retired" at age 25.
I laughed my ass off when MSU was playing EMU and they showed Mike Hart as an EMU assistant coach. The funny part was when the announcer said that Mike Hart had retired from pro football.
When you are 25, there are three reasons you are no longer in the NFL.
1.) You did a Kevin Ware impersonation.
2.) No team wants you.
3.) You quit.
It's not that most people care if someone has a different sexual orientation (even if they think its wrong). It's the players who get naked with them that I can see having issues with the matter. Outside of the locker room I don't see too many issues even it was documented a teammate was gay.
Personally I think historic is really over used to describe things. I don't see a huge issue. Are people going to look at them differently? Most likely. ( either positively or negatively) I mean the overall goal is for these things not to matter right? So would it actually be counter the whole point to make a big deal out of it at all? Would someone that has a conflicting viewpoint get as much celebration or would there be criticism instead? I don't really care who comes out, if they come out, and the whole situation in general.
I guess you can chalk that up as a victory since that is what the goal is for the movement. ( for it to not matter about anyone)

It will be fascinating to watch the reactions when/if some NFL athletes choose to out themselves. NTTIAWWT.
For the record I enjoy the NFL & the Bravo network.
Well said. "Ive been putting my hands where?"
Crap. In response to Final Countdown' s post.

Did you just come out?
Former Chiefs O lineman Eric Winston. Did anyone else suspect that when he ranted about the Chiefs fans booing whatever schlub QB?
