49ers cornerback Chris Culliver has apologized for his comments in regards to having a gay teammate. Culliver stated that “those were thoughts in his head, not how he really feels.”
The 49ers have denounced those comments, and other have as well. Jon Ryan, the punter for the Seattle Seahawks doesn’t think it’s enough, and tweeted out his feelings on the matter, saying the league should suspend Culliver.
I don’t think a suspension can happen and definitely not for using your right to speak freely. Was Culliver wrong, definitely, but it was within his right.
