49ers Coach Says He'd Welcome a Gay Player



At least one half of the Harbowl would welcome a gay player on his team — the San Francisco half.

"Personally, there’s no discrimination in my heart,” said 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh, according to OutSports.

The San Francisco Harbaugh (who faces off against his brother John as coach of the Baltimore Ravens in the Super Bowl) is a former player himself as an ex-quarterback for the Chicago Bears. OutSports reports that he told the San Francisco Chronicle's subscription iPad magazine his expectations wouldn't change if a player of his were gay.

"I ask all players to play through their own personality and be who they are," he said. "What you ask of a player is to be a great teammate and be a good player. My expectations would be the same."

1. That makes two...

...reasons that I'll be backing the 49ers. As a lifelong Bears fan, I've got a former QB in the game. And, apparently a compassionate former QB.

GO 49ERS!!! (Until next year. )

2. Good.

I'd say, that I'd like to see that at long last in the NFL.

5. LOL You don't want to cup it...

Never did understand the butt slap, glad to finally get at least one explanation for that.

I have also never understood why gayness is an issue at all. I don't care one way or another. I wish it was a non issue so that no one had to explain if they are gay, straight, or just not interested at all.

9. This is killing...he is such a major asshole otherwise...I call it the Hairball Bowl...

That said, at least the 49'ers don't have a murderer on their squad so I suppose they should win.
