NEW ORLEANS – San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver has made inflammatory comments regarding homosexuality in football just a few days before Super Bowl XLVII.

Shock jock Artie Lange revealed he had interviewed Culliver at media day Tuesday and aired a segment on his show that night, where the player insisted that any gay players would not be welcome on the team.

"I don't do the gay guys man," said Culliver, whose Niners play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. "I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.

"Can't be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can't be…in the locker room man. Nah."

When quizzed by Lange whether any homosexual athletes would need to keep their sexuality a secret in football, Culliver responded: "Yeah, come out 10 years later after that."

He’s going to pay for this indiscretion dearly, but he did speak his mind . . . and bully for him. Hope it doesn’t affect his career.

If it hurts his NFL career, he can always teach English.

Doesn't exactly help your cause if one of your "spokesmen" is a guy like this.

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver has made inflammatory comments regarding homosexuality in football just...

Pervertspeak is identical to koranimalspeak :

"Blasphemy" or "inflammatory" speech is ANYTHING they decide they don't want to hear. Antithecal to a political system with a Bill of Rights, which is not subject to elimination or modification.

His apology will be forthcoming in the next 24 hrs. Bet’cha. Also the No Fun League will fine his highly articulate *ss. I admire his candor though.

And according to a sports site:

“The Memphis Grizzlies and Toronto Raptors have agreed to a trade in principle that would send F Rudy Gay to Toronto in exchange for PG Jose Calderon and F Ed Davis, according to numerous reports.”

I hope the headline doesn’t read: Toronto gets Gay.

So.... free speech is "inflammatory comment"s now, when the "media" disagree with what you say.

See: this is what we need to make the "media" answer to when they print this trash: "What do you have against Free Speech? Huh?"

He’s speaking the same thoughts most every other football player is probably thinking. What straight guy wants to play a high-contact sport with a gay guy? And then there’s the showers afterwards. If a team lets gays play, then at least give them their own locker room.

Well, guys in women’s locker rooms is probably coming before long, too. Some places already have coed bathrooms with individual, not communal, stalls for showers and toilets. The left believes men and women and everything in between should be able to ignore sex except when they’re having it with preferably as many partners (of both sexes—don’t discriminate!) as they can while using free birth control. If something goes wrong, there are always free AIDS drugs and abortions. It’s a brave new world!

What’s interesting is that a Balto player made a point of saying he was going to use the SB media exposure to advocate for “gay marriage” and equality. HE will be lionized. This guy not so much.

He has already been forced to apologize:

“The derogatory comments I made yesterday were a reflection of thoughts in my head, but they are not how I feel. It has taken me seeing them in print to realize that they are hurtful and ugly. Those discriminating feelings are truly not in my heart. Further, I apologize to those who I have hurt and offended, and I pledge to learn and grow from this experience.”

Being from MN & WI, I really didn't care which team won the Super Bowl....but Chris Culliver has made up my mind!

GO 49ers! And Go Chris Culliver! I hope he has a great game on Sunday and that he even picks off a pass or two!

Love to see the fags & politically correct gestapo thugs get their faggot thongs all twisted & bunched up!

Well, I see that Chris Culliver has already caved in and made the obligatory apology to the politically correct gestapo thugs. So I guess I am back to “I could care less who wins the Super Bowl”. Faggot city on the west coast or union thug city on the east coast. Either one is an abomination!

I heard they are forcing the Niner cheerleaders to lower their skirts for the Super Bowl. Their balls were hanging out in the Atlanta game.

FYI, this Raiders fan will be cheering for SF during the Super Bowl. Even though I almost always cheer for the AFC (unless it’s an AFC West team that doesn’t call Oakland home).

Having heard the audio of Culliver’s original statement, I seriously doubt he wrote this. He sounded like someone who needed a tutor to keep from failing recess.

The Homostasi must have gotten to him! Heterosexual males are not permitted to express any reservations about homosexuality.

Uh oh! Liberal victim group versus liberal victim group! Interestingly enough, Gay seems to trump Black in the latest liberal victim calculus. I remember when one of the black actors got drummed off of the show Grey’s Anatomy when he called on of the gay cast members a fag.

Like the military, the San Francisco 49ers should mandate the addition of women and gays. That would be sure to reverse course for the NFL power house from first to worst!
