3. This asshole doesn't realize that he's probably already

played with at least one gay guy, somewhere along the line. Jerk.

I won't name names. But it is a not so well kept secret in the Bay Area!

31. I hope the Farty Whiners get their asses handed to them on both sides of the field by the

Ravens. Not that I like the Ravens (everyone knows who I am a fan of), but I have always hated the Farty Whiners.

14. Until I saw your reply, I did not know who the 49ers were playing.

I live in the Bay Area but stay pretty clueless. Until I moved out here, I had never (in person) seen anyone who appeared to be an adult wearing a team jersey with someone's name on it. I have been out here eleven years and still have not gotten used to it.

7. He obviously is not aware of the thousands of gay fans in the city for which he plays

I'm surprised there isn't a petition to have him cut from the team before the Super Bowl. He may be the most hated man in SF by sunset.

But, I do hope that he doesn't play.

11. 49ers issue statement...

“The San Francisco 49ers reject the comments that were made yesterday, and have addressed the matter with Chris. There is no place for discrimination within our organization at any level. We have and always will proudly support the LGBT community.”

12. That's bold

and not too bright to say that on a San Fran team. Did he really not think that one through? If nothing else, growing up he must have heard at least a few of the abundance of SF/gay jokes.

Still I won't root against SF just because of one jackass, it takes at least two which is why I won't root for Baltimore with Ray "Crying, Father god preaching, shady past" Lewis or Joe "Whiny baby" Flacco. Not to take anything away from their talents and true abilities on the field but I can't stand either of them.

22. sad.

You would think an AA would be more sensitive to others but I guess not.

The AA community (especially religious) need to start accepting and understanding our GLBT brothers and sisters.

23. Gays have been playing pro ball for decades....

....If you can participate in combat, than you can certainly play in a game.

It's about time the rest of the NFL wised up.

24. Not an excuse but he lives in an ultra-alpha male world

and as a CB is has to have the utmost of confidence or at least project it.

Dumbass statement by him but not surprising.

26. How is broadcasting his own sexual insecurities an act of "utmost confidence"

And do corners really have to project confidence? No one's trying to tackle them.

30. No they have to have confidence in their abilities

they have a very short shelf life and any slip is exposed.

In three years he will driving a bread truck anyway - 97% of "the league" is out of football money in 3 years.

*not that their is anything wrong with driving a bread truck ....unless you are an idiot like this NFL player

33. The ex-Niner player caved his boyfriend's head in.

 

Which is why the subject came up in the first place.

This asshole's opinion was the prevailing attitude in the NFL for years and it's still mostly like that because the league is a haven for right wing fundie nuts but it is getting better.

The rest of the players had positive things to say about the ex-teammate.
