    None of which happened at Mizzou, at least to my knowledge.

    You guys on the right just don't get it, do you? How do you feel about blacks in baseball?
    Sorry, that was tongue-in-cheek, should have made that more clear for you.
    As for blacks in baseball, what is your problem with that?

    Well that was a wonderful rant based on seemingly nothing but your own feelings towards it, but let me present a counter argument...shall I?

    Even back in the 70's, when the feeling towards homosexuals was indisputably more negative than now, it wasn't some universal negative in the locker room. I mentioned Jerry Smith earlier. His roommate Brig Owens, and hall of famer Wide Reciever Charley Taylor, were two players in the locker room that knew about it and had no problem with it. Bobby Mitchell, another hall of famer that played with him, was quoted stating that after it was made public that he was homosexual that they still treated him the same as everyone else becuase he was "one of us".

    Feelings on homosexuality and it's acceptance in the public sphere has only gotten better since the 70's. Even now, one can look to twitter of NFL players and see plenty of positive reactions (Example). None of those players HAD to make a tweet, none had any ability to be punished if they said nothing, this was them choosing to react positively to it in a public manner. Doesn't sound like the folks that would all get together and unquestionably run a guy out of a locker room.

    Additionally, he came out already to his team in Mizzu. He already had a year of being out with players in the locker room capable of being "checked out" or wondering about his "toughness". Didn't seem like he got ran out of the locker room there, other than onto the field to become one of the best defensive players this year in the best conference in football.

    And as it comes to fans...nearly 60% of people don't have an issue with homosexual relationships. Only 33% of people think homosexuality should be something that is unacceptable in society. On top of that you had fans in Philadelphia accepting Micheal Vick. You had fans in various places accepting Donte Stallworth. Baltimore fans ADORE Ray Lewis. NFL fans can "accept" a lot when it comes to a player that's on their team. I'd dare say there were FAR more negative numbers in terms of people's views on Mike Vick then there is in terms of peopels views on homosexuals.

    I don't care what he sucks while off the field, as long as he doesn't suck on the field...

    If we treat homosexuals like heterosexuals, then yes. Women have seperate facilities because men want to look at them naked. It would therefore stand to reason that homosexuals should have seperate facilities in case others want to look at them naked. Including other homosexuals. Only if anyone cares though. If no one on the team cares who they see naked or sees them naked, no need to do anything.

    How about not compartmentalizing by sexual orientation?

    By the way Jason Collins, near the end of his career, doesn't have a job anymore after coming out gay. No one picked up his contract.
    Collins was 50/50 based on comparable stats to other nba centers, so that's not surprising. As far as this case, if he doesn't get signed he can sue any team in a city that has ENDA protections, as well the other teams probably since the nfl absurdly gets federal subsidies. I certainly hope he doesn't sue the piss out of them if that happens.

    Colins was at the low end of the spectrum as far as NBA centers go. he only averaged 3ppg over his career. he was at his best clogging up the middle and committing fouls to keep people from getting a clean shot off. barely good enough to stay in the league, but never good enough to start or stay with the same team for more than a couple of years.
