I understand why people don't like the gays....gay only became cool like 5-7 years ago. I remember the Ellen show and it was such a big deal that a homosexual was the star in a sitcom and that was in 1997. America at one time not long ago was a mostly Christian nation and you would never hear anybody speak bad about god or the bible(not anymore)...and those folks you will never change.

 

I personally dont give a poo one way or the other if you are gay or not

There would certainly be some ignorant groups of fans, but I also think there would be many more in support of the player. Sports in general can sadly bring out the worst in people but not all fans are irrational deranged bigots.

 

no doubt. Thats why i said "mob America."  I probably should have said "in general" or something like that. I mean were in the Carolina's

i've said this before. America has a tendency of being the last place to do something "progressive" but the first to pat themselves on the back when they finally get something right. A gay NFL player making it that far in the profession with all of the homophobia he/she has more than likely witnessed/experienced is the definition of character and perserverence. That takes balls. But mob America will poo on this person. Jackie Robinson comes to mind. And yes there is a similarity between race and sexuality in this context. Once a gay player comes out, and plays, over time it won't be as much of an issue. It will open doors for many.

I want this team to be the best it can be. For example, if the rumors are true about Kerry Rhodes and he can help this team. Sign that dude. My only hope is that the rest of the Panthers organization and fans would support him.

reading comprehension is either a problem or i didn't explain myself well enough. There is a connection in the reaction from fans between Jackie Robinson playing in MLB during that time period and a homosexual playing in the NFL in this time period. That is all i was saying.

Not sure about Jackie Robinson comparisons there. An individual can't hide ones race....


The lil dude in my avatar & I disagree.

Just listen to a WFNZ calllers segment when there is anything about gay athletes and rights...it gets downright embarassing.

If you think people choose their sexuality and pretend you never grew up with that "tomboy" girl that became a lesbian or that "girly" acting boy who became gay grownup then you are fooling yourself.

Im not saying there is not a segment that just may not have options..but it is a small percentage of the gay population.

We should also make room for the players that like to fug goats/pigs/mules in our hearts also.  They were born that way.  Harvard proved that, right?  Oh, wait a minute.
