Always remember that if you want people to respect your opinion, you should respect their opinions. As long as that opinion isn’t vulgar or filled with slurs, it is just an opinion.

I have no issues with what James Franklin had to say to TMZ Sportseven if I disagree with him.

“I don’t drink. I don’t curse. I don’t support [homosexuality] — but it doesn’t mean I don’t accept Michael,” Franklin says.

When asked if he was supportive of Sam when he made his announcement in August, Franklin said … “I wouldn’t say supportive, but accepting. A lot of people confuse supporting and accepting.”

There are some semantics there, but what he is saying is he doesn’t agree with it, but he accepted it for the betterment of the team.  Franklin goes on to say he never felt uncomfortable around Sam and that he will be there for him no matter what.

I think the same will be for some NFL players. They won’t support it, but if Sam can help the team they will accept it.
