    I guess it may take a small amount of courage, but not a big deal. I mean, what's the downside? He comes out, all media and players are supporting him, saying how great it is. Heck, I wonder if a hetero player will come out as gay just for the accolades. I don't think there is a team out there that gives crap about him being gay. They just care if he can help them succeed. The bottom line is dollars, and that trumps all. Anyone come out and declare their heterosexuality?

    When did you decide to be straight? When did you come out to your co-workers?

    It's interesting how the same people who were all concerned about a gay guy being a problem in the locker room, now say "who cares." If it was really like that, why hasn't anyone come out before? Do you really think there were no gay guys in the NFL?

    And now the public knows, so when it comes out in the press as it inevitably would, it spares the team having to deal with it. I'd bet that more than a couple of GMs told his agent to have him come out before the draft so it wouldn't be an issue.

    Or anyone he might be attracted to, or attracted to him, who has to share bathrooms with him. Women wouldnt be asked to share a shower with her male teamates.

    Nothing like preparing for a mediocre career by lining up your excuse early.

    The same guy who's screaming, LOOK AT ME, I'M GAY will soon be crying, WAAHHH, THEY'RE LOOKING AT ME BECAUSE IM GAY.

    Wish folks would keep their sexlife to themselves.

    Most gays or lesbians to the best of my knowledge, even if 'attracted' to a hetero person, won't go hitting on them. I have many friends who play alternate fields, and we've had some pretty serious conversations.

    I've been hit on by women, and address it the same way if a man hits on me that I'm not interested in. "I'm flattered, but no thanks."

    Some women won't even share an open shower with other women. Neither will some men.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    And women get seperate facilities. Shouldnt gay men? They might not want other gay men, or women, staring at them. Its not neccesarily about harrasment, but privacy.

    Jason Colins was nothing more than a bench warmer who was called in on occasion to rough someone up in the middle.
    I knew Collins was a nobody. I thoight for sure that his announcement gaurantee him a spot on the team.
