    Yeah, and I don't see the big deal. How is this "earth shattering" or how is he being "so brave" and blah blah blah everything else people keep saying. Being gay is more acceptable than being atheist these days. ****, you get Tillman-ed for that.

    Nothing brave about a guy at the end of his career making this kind of announcement. Brave would have been coming out during the height of his career (not that he ever really had one) when he actually had something to lose.

    hmmm
    welll it seems early but id say it alters things quite bit "IF" he gets a contract because he will be the first openly gay player ever

    that along with all the books, documentaries, interviews etc of former players and how fearful they wear, how even suspect gays were treated in the past this could "potentially" alter the landscape of sports because now athletes would be more willing not to live a lie.

    That my guess on what the article means anyway and it seems pretty logical to me.

    I dont know what do you think?

    Very brave, VERY BRAVE

    glad to see he has some support too!
    He's not gay. There's no such thing as a gay (or straight) person. There is only homosexual and heterosexual behavior.

    The practice of labeling oneself according to artificial categories is both childish and primitive.

    After all, 20 years ago, a poster like AGENT J would've given me s for even suggesting the above.

    So it'll be another 50 years for it to finally figure out that the invalidity of artificial (socially constructed) identities.

    Yay! Guys doing each other in the butt! Yay!!

    LOL, I'll never get the neediness and please-look-at-me psyche of the marketing faction of homosexuals.

    Just do what you do, and let it be. Why the drama? Why the need to Facebook your sexuality? It's sad, and frankly, hard to take someone seriously that is so wrapped up in "being gay."

    I am trying to figure out how so many premises get put into a narrative, how did the idea that a self proclaimed role player get turned into this meme that he is a superstar? Along with that, when did he say he was brave?
