    Why make a mountain out of a mole hill?

    This young man took a bold step to announce he is openly gay. For all we know there are many gay football players who choose to rightfully keep that part of their life private..

    Everyone needs to give this a rest and it will got away and this young man will be accepted for his difference and he will not project his difference upon fellow teammates

    Thank You! I tell it as I see it. This is how I see it. If the media had not made such a big deal issue it would be a moot point as it should be.

    I’m a huge football fan. My biggest objection is the NFL’s tax exempt status. Regarding the above, I don’t think it’s a big deal. But we must remember that for decades it “wasn’t a big deal” to send blacks to the back of the bus… unless, of course, you happened to be black. We will see how the draft shakes out. I’m hopefully predicting 3rd round. He’s a great player. Might need to shift to outside linebacker to emphasize his pass rushing speed. Don’t know if he’s big enough to stay on the line, but he sure can pass rush.

    @Tigger

    Excuse me! It’s not a “moot” point. Did you ever get tied up to a fence and left to die in the middle of Wyoming for being gay? Did you ever go through school having to hide your sexuality while everyone else was dating for fear of being tied to a fence and left to die? Do heterosexual players constantly flaunt their families when they win a game while millions of young impressionable gay viewers are watching feeling alienated and unrepresented!! Again people!!!! Empathy! Kindness! Understanding! This is a big deal for gay people. So, either you’re too stupid to realize it, or you’re too cowardly to admit the reason it doesn’t matter to YOU is because you don’t like gay people. Either way, wake up! The whole ignore it and it will go away and it doesn’t matter line is just as insulting and hurtful as the explicit “I don’t like gay people”.

    I agree. I remember one night in 1969 hearing some white people discussing civil rights in Little Rock. “I like colored people, I really do. And I think it’s a shame they’re having all these problems right now. And I think if we just shot a few more of their leaders the rest would settle down.” Silence is not a solution. Kudos to this brave young man and good luck in his career.

    too many up tight White Christians have built that mountain with lots of blood and guts and agonized people they tortured and killed.

    Not so bad now but the few are getting harder and redder and want to take over here.

    If that bar of soap – that the Gay Guy is holding in the shower – looks a little too phallic, YOU might be Gay.
