    On topic....yeah, what you said.
    It's a selfie I took a few days ago. I've gotten a pretty good tan this summer but the grey hairs are still visible.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    I am getting a little tired of people saying the same thing:

    'Good luck to him - but I don't want him. Too distracting.'

    That's a little like saying 'I love blacks - I just don't want them at my party...too distracting.'

    Since no openly homosexual man has EVER played in the NFL, then there is no way possible that they can know how distracting he will be.
    Maybe he will be distracting. Maybe not at all. Maybe he will aid the team's bottom line as LGBT fans/non-fans buy the teams paraphernalia in huge numbers, all over the nation in support of drafting him.

    And multi-millionaire head coaches/GM's should have a little more on their mind then just winning and losing...like doing what is right once in a while. Furthering the cause of humanity should creep into the equation sometimes - and since LGBT represent probably well over 10% of the population...that is a lot of humanity.


    I am a HUGE Dallas Cowboys fan and I am straight.

    But I would have LOVED for the Cowboys to have been the ones who drafted him...even if he turned out to be a huge distraction. Just so I could feel a little bit more pride in 'America's team' (no - I don't like that nickname either).


    Btw, it's lucky everyone did not say that about Jackie Robinson.


    Finally, I am not the slightest bit interested in debating this. If you don't agree with me - I don't care. And if you do - then there is nothing to debate.

    I am simply stating this to add my opinion to the discussion.
    You have less respect for him because he has an opinion that many do, but are scared to death to say?

    The sweater is a bit much, but the glasses and tie are hot!

    Why would it be a distraction there?
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    He may be a special teams guy. You never know.

    Bunch of dudes that pride themselves on their tough guy persona showering with a gay man. Think about it.

    No offense but it is pretty ovious you have not been in a male locker room.

    Till he gets out run by every safety and back up receiver on the team. He had a bad combine. Was a defensive player of the year in a weak division.
    Probably a great guy over all. But NFL skills? No one sees it.

    I think it could be. Not the players, but the media. I can see those morons asking questions like "How is it to have a locker next to a gay man?" and "Do you feel uncomfortable in the shower?" coming as quickly as football questions about the game.
