You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Think if Trump get elected how much resistance he will face with in all phases of our country from people to military to politicians. He must not win.
1) I don't think this will have as great of an impact as people think because I don't think he's much of an "active" player. He's not under contract, he's not playing right now, and there's no guarantee he plays next year
2) That I was not looking forward to the potential accusations of "He's black balled because he came out" if he doesn't get picked up by a team since there is an entirely reasonable argument and likelihood that he'd not get picked back up.
I'm not critical of his stats or his role. The big man bench player is a time honored tradition in the league. He is what he is as a basketball player, not because he's gay but because of his athletic skills and role in the league.
I don't criticze him for coming out. I don't criticize him for his career (the man lasted in the league 14 years, you can't criticize that regardless of stats). However, I'm also not naive enough to think that the impact will be lessened and likely short lived due to his current quasi-active status and being a relatively unknown roleplayer. At some point, a player in the prime of his career and/or with a little name recognition will come out and in 30 or 40 years I think that'll be the person looked back upon with Jackie Robinson type of notions because the American public are rather shallow like that.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

2.) "scientific study" now? LMAO just stop wow talk about strawman, guess ill have to wait till MIT finishes up the study i know they rushed to conduct about this and ignore all the verbal evidence for all the personal involved. Just stop, you were wrong, no big deal, man up and deal with it.
yes the words of current and ex players, owners, coaches and the president of the league in which we are discussing who disagree with you is only my assumption and delusion
you stick with that, let me know how it works out for you. Start writing the letter to them and let them know they are wrong and liars!!

now along the way the many goal posts he tried to move to are in fact different but i dont care and its simply why i stuck to my original point the whole time.
