    Actually, probably since the beginning of the NFL in 1920... we just don't know who they were.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Saw the commentary over this on John Oliver's new show last night. I really liked that the reactions to Sam's drafting. It focused entirely on his abilities as a player, and didn't feel that his sexuality was even important to the discussion. Of course, those were professionals. There was a lot of anti-gay outcry all over the internet, so we don't yet live in a world where gays will be judged irrespective of their sexuality. But it was good to see some part of our society going in that direction.

    The only thing you proved is that you know nothing about the draft or college football or football in general.

    Will he now be judged on his contribution to the sport and not his bedroom preferences?

    No one has come out and actively played in the NFL at the same time. There has been many NFL players who came out after their careers ended.

    Edit: Perhaps you are thinking about Kwame Harris? He stopped playing in 2008, but came out after a domestic abuse charge in 2013.

    Phillip Rivers is devout and does all kind of work.

    The Tebowers are just lying..
