If fans do not want to believe that there are gay athletes in the NBA, NFL and MLB… then they live in some lala land. Even Deion Sanders had teammates who were gay. On the “Arsenio Hall” show, Deion Sanders explained that there were gay players who played but no one knew.
“He’s not the first gay guy in the NFL,” Sanders said … “He’s the first one to come out.”
“Every team I played on … I think I played on 5 different teams … there was someone gay in the locker room.”
Deion says he and his teammates always knew who the gay players were and only judged that person based on football ability.
Sanders — a deeply religious guy — says he doesn’t “condone nor condemn” homosexuality … but says, “We just gotta give love.”
