NFL Says Teams Can’t Ask Players if They’re Gay, But You Still Can Ask if Mom is a Hooker

Remember when Jeff Ireland asked Dez Bryant if his mom was a prostitute? He did apologize, but that line of questioning was never dismissed by the NFL. Only the NFLPA stood up against that.

But, if you asked Manti Te’o if he is gay or if a player likes girls, the NFL frowns upon that.

I think all those questions are stupid, but what I would like the NFL to do is come up with some better guidelines in regard to how players are interview.

You shouldn’t be able to ask if someone’s mother is basically a whore, that is away out of line. It shouldn’t matter if someone is gay or like girls, that has nothing to do with can they make a tackle or catch. You can ask about someone’s life, but you don’t have to do it in a disrespectful way.

Doesn’t matter if you are Dez Bryant and Te’o everyone should be treated with respect.

    I don’t agree with the manner in which the questions were asked, but i also don’t agree that it should just be about whether or not a player can make a tackle. NFL history is full of gifted elite athletes who can run, block, throw, tackle, and catch, but can’t balance a checkbook or can’t control the demons surrounding their personal lives. How many times have players lost their jobs because they couldn’t get their personal lives in order?
