    I think he is wrong mainly because all NFL players have the potential to become a huge media distraction. Vick is one good example, and this guy mentored Vick after he served his time. There are many others though who have brought media attention to themselves, some do so on a regular basis. It is the nature of being a professional athlete in a well-known league that brings media attention in itself. Extra brought on by something like being openly gay is not going to be that much compared to just being a player. People have fairly short attention spans.

    Just like with the military, it wouldn't be that big of a deal. I guarantee that most players have played with someone sometime in their past who was gay, even if it wasn't openly. They still knew and it likely wasn't a big deal at all.
    You are missing the point. Now, every football fan is going to know YOU shower with a gay dude.

    What is your point? Are you saying Ram players lose credibility or some kind of man card with fans for possibly showering with an openly gay guy?


    Frankly, my dear, as a football fan myself I don't give a damn.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Good for you, you are not a guy. And most football fans are guys.
    And this thread is about Dungy and his comments. Pounding the minutia of what everyone else thinks is not.

    Yes, his comments about the media not showering with other dudes, which is what you brought up.

    Brought up because someone asked what the big deal was. But keep coming after me. Please, I love it. Even if it has nothing to do with the OP.

    YOU brought it up first by the tenth post but whatever, locker rooms has something to do with the op somehow, which was about the media's distractions.

    Glad you love it, I'd hate to get on your bad side.

    Pretty sure every football fan (or almost every fan) already assumed that football players were showering with at least one gay dude. Very few care and those that do are simply ignorant for caring whether or not football players are showering with gay dudes. It doesn't make you gay to shower (as in a large open bay shower area) with someone who is gay.

    And most guys don't care. If they did, the very fact that football players shower with other guys at all, no matter their sexuality, would bother them. This is just looking for an excuse.

    That, coming from a woman????? You are not a man, you are not qualified to speak about what goes on in a mens locker room. Sorry.
