Andrew Luck Says Gay Teammate Would “Just Be One Of The Guys”

Gay athletes and how they would be treated by teammates has become the ultimate topic the past few months, and everyone from each major sport has voiced or has an opinion on the matter.

Indianapolis Colts star quarterback was on CNN recently, and was asked to give his opinion on the topic.  Luck stated that a “gay teammate would be just one of the guys to him.”

“I hope if someone’s thinking about [coming out], that if they do come out as gay and it makes them happy and it makes their life easier, then I think they should do it,” Colts quarterback Andrew Luck told CNN, via  “My first reaction is really good for him. . . .

“It’s the 21st century, and I know I would have absolutely no problem with it.  I hope no one would treat him any differently than any straight player, no special treatment — he’s just another guy.”

The question now is what active gay NFL player will have the courage to come out while still having to enter an NFL lockerroom.

    why care about what he thinks why do gay people feel the need to tell if your gay fine that’s what you are and you will have to deal with it and GOD will deal with it, just shut up about it.

    • David Greybeard says:

      No, you shut up. You dang hatred filled bigot.

    • Steve R. says:

      “GOD” worship is on the decline amongst all major demographic groups in the US, Kev. So “GOD” has no bearing in this discussion. Try to keep apprised of how modern society and culture works, son.

  2. David Greybeard says:

    Andrew Luck is a man with good common sense. I hope the rest of the NFL feels the same way!

    • Warren says:

      I think Luck is right! As younger players come in, the whole gay thing will become unimportant because, like Luck, the younger generation is cool with alternative lifestyles. Any gay who makes it to NFL or NBA knows how to behave in a locker room!

        “Any gay who makes it to NFL or NBA knows how to behave in a locker room!” <—– THIS is The DUMBEST SHIT EVER TYPED in a post about Openly GAY DUDES in Professional Sports Though #SMDH

        How in DEE FUCK You Know This?!!? How can you SPEAK FOR EVERY HOMOSEXUAL MALE in Locker-Rooms Though (PURE IGNORANCE ON DISPLAY…)

    football is a job. there shouldn’t be any discrimination in the workplace, but at the same time we don’t have to know what your sexual orientation is. if you bang dudes, whatever. i don’t understand how this became such a hot topic. its not like jackie robinson playing baseball. i honestly would not wanna see an overly flamboyant gay man on the gridiron. thats just not football. but its ok to be gay i agree, just dont make such a big deal about it when in the end thats the conclusion everyone comes to. its not a big deal.

    The only reason this is “the ultimate topic the last few months” is because someone told you to make it an issue to endlessly drone over…everywhere-24/7. Here’s a newsflash: “nobody cares”.
