I pointed this out when I spoke of what a brilliant business move this was, by Jason Collins. No one can say anything even remotely against him, without being attack.

It already happened to Mike Wallace and Chris Broussard, so it isn’t surprising to hear this from a NBA player.

I don’t like anonymous quotes, but I understand the predicament the player is in. He probably saw what happened to Broussard when he said the exact same thing and figured it wasn’t worth the trouble. Don’t be fooled by all the public support, privately there is a lot of different conversations going on.

The conversations are more like what Mike Wallace said on publicly on Twitter. To me there is nothing wrong with that, it is ok to ask questions and have differing opinions on things.

As long as you aren’t being hateful and threatening harm to anyone, it is your right as an American, to believe whatever you want to believe in.

There is a line that shouldn’t be crossed when discussing such matters. If Mike Wallace called Jason Collins a “Faggot” that’s totally different than asking why he doesn’t like the ladies. If Chris Broussard says Jason Collins should burn in hell and be arrested for being gay, that’s different than saying he believes homosexuality is a sin because of his faith.

We are a smart society (I would like to think we are), we need to use more common sense, so players aren’t scared to talk open and freely, about how they are feeling about certain things that are going on in the world.

Lose the mob mentality, be your own person, stop following the bandwagon.
