We can’t bury our heads in the sand and pretend that a lot of people don’t feel the same way Alfred Blue does, about gay football players.
Probably, not very smart though to say it in public, but if you say it, you need to say it with your chest and stand behind it. Here are the quotes courtesy of The Big Lead.
“Football is supposed to be this violent sport — this aggressive sport that grown men are supposed to play,” said senior LSU running back Alfred Blue. “Ain’t no little boys out here between them lines. So if you gay, we look at you as a sissy. You know? Like, how you going to say you can do what we do and you want a man?”
He is entitled to his opinion, I am not going to bash him, just because I don’t agree with him. It just should be known, it isn’t going to be all peaches and cream for any football player to come publicly out of the closet. There are a lot of Alfred Blue type feelings out there, that just will never be put on record.
