On the hand there is no bigger stage to promote a cause than the Super Bowl, but when you are participating in the game, you would think that would be your main focus.

Brendon Ayanbadejo is a special teamer, but to win the Super Bowl you need all 53 players focused on their job, but according to Pro Football Talk he has something else on his mind.

Linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo, according to the New York Times, plans to use the intense media coverage to promote his support for same-sex marriage.

“It’s one of those times when you’re really passionate and in your zone,” Ayanbadejo said.  “And I got to thinking about all kinds of things, and I thought:  ‘How can we get our message out there?’”

Ayanbadejo who is known for making news (called the Patriots offense a gimmick), so the Ravens can’t be surprised, but do they need the distraction?

To me this is something you talk about after the Super Bowl, not before.  I admire that he is down for a cause, but right now they need him to be the best football player he can be, not politician.
