The Super Bowl is supposed to be the platform for the two best teams in football, Hall of Fame finalist being revealed, and a week-long celebration of the NFL football season.

This week due to some dumb comments, and social awareness, gay football players have taken center stage.  Chris Culliver fired the first salvo when he made the comment, “I don’t do gays” at media day.

The topic has been talked about non stop all week and now a person you’d least expect to comment and spoken about it.  NFL legend and former Lions running back Barry Sanders was asked by TMZ is thoughts on the matter.

Sanders answered point-blank that a gay NFL player “would be teased for coming out the closet.” Sanders was asked if gay players pose a problem for the league.  “Absolutely not.”  “I don’t know that there haven’t been MANY gay players on NFL teams [in the past].”

“gay players should not be afraid to come out to their teams — but need to know that they WILL be teased in the locker rooms”

in a locker room you get teased for anything.”

“If somebody comes out, they’re gonna get teased, but they need to have thick skin and get along with their life.”

Unfortunately, I agree with Barry that regardless of what players say on camera, behind the scenes, a gay football would have to have the utmost heart and courage.

    Totally true & well said Barry Sanders, Footbal is a mans game , no time to put up with Perverted Gay Filth, if some Deviant decides to announce he a Cocksucker & a Booty Bandit you can damn well believe he’s gonna get teased and probably be made too feel so un-comfortable that he’ll leave the team. No room for Gay Crap in the NFL, These Grown Men Multi-Millionaires won’t be BULLIED or Intimidated by the Gay Mafia and their PC SODOMITE FILTH.
