    I'm white. Guess I should be a huge fan of Toby Gerhart and say that he's the best running back since John Riggins. Do you know how retarded that sounds?
    Um, you have jackasses going back to reggie white who made very blatant death threats without repercussion, no one has come out because they have good reason to believe it will instantly kill their career, and still there's no truth at all to what i said? You have Te'o and Aaron Rodgers, both basically caught red handed in relationships with dudes, desperately denying.

    Now tell me why there are no black hockey fans? Same godamn thing, they've no one they can relate to. I'm talking about an entire league not the damn running back position. Even so, being white is hardly the same thing, but that's your business. If you want to not watch football cause of a dearth of white running backs, be my guest. But don't fool yourself that it's the same. It's like i saw someone mockingly demanded a phone call from obama for announcing he's straight....Come the **** on.

    It must suck to be a minority of some sort. Can't root for anything without representation. I don't root for white players in the NFL. Frankly, if the NFL was white, it'd suck.

    I'm only going to like things because of one aspect of my life.

    I'm actually glad I'm not gay. I'd hate to think of myself as being able to self-define with one damned characteristic and that's it. I'd be gay. That's all. That's all I am - gay. One thing. Done.

    So you have to "relate" to somebody to watch and like a sport? Good gosh. How gay is that?

    I spend all day every day thinking about heterosexual I am and how much I like Mexican food.

    now that we have openly gay NBA players, gives a whole new meaning to "driving the lane" and "taking it to the hole"

    How often do you know of the sexuality of football players, basketball players, hockey players, etc? How often do you know of their personal life at all? It's one thing to pick up on that they aren't black, because you know that fact right off the bat, but sexuality? I don't see how the two things are comparable.

    They're not defining themselves by one thing, you're defining them by one thing. Maybe if you changed your world view from "human beings" and "gays" you wouldn't have this problem.
