Niners' Culliver apparently wants out worse than Alex Smith
he just alienated 95% of the Bay Area fan base with this staggering display of doucherocketry.
Shock jock Artie Lange revealed he had interviewed Culliver at media day Tuesday and aired a segment on his show that night, where the player insisted that any gay players would not be welcome on the team.
"I don't do the gay guys man," said Culliver, whose Niners play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. "I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.
"Can't be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can't be…in the locker room man. Nah."
When quizzed by Lange whether any homosexual athletes would need to keep their sexuality a secret in football, Culliver responded: "Yeah, come out 10 years later after that."
This is not going to go down well at Uncle Bert's, a gay Niners bar in the Castro!

1. Oh man..not representing the organization very well is he?
This is more like it:
Asked in November how he would react to coaching an openly gay player, Harbaugh said, “I have no discrimination in my heart. I ask all players to play through their own personality and be who they are. What you ask of a player is to be a great team player and be a good player. My expectations (of a gay player) would be the same.”
Other players asked the same question for a 49ers digital magazine story said they would also accept an openly gay player.
Here is a statement from the 49ers about Culliver’s comments:
“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.”
