4 gay NFL players could come out on the same day, Brendon Ayanbadejo says
SB Nation ^ | 4/5/13 | Andrew Sharp

Posted on 04/05/2013 8:34:12 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo was released by Baltimore this offseason, and on the heels of comments earlier this week where he suggested that he was cut in part because of his outspoken stance on gay rights and equality issues, Ayanbadejo clarified himself to the Baltimore Sun on Friday. During an hour-long interview he made it clear that he harbors no resentment for the Ravens, and respects them for the support they offered him throughout his career both on and off the field. But that's not all.

...Ayanbadejo had this to say:

"I think it will happen sooner than you think," Ayanbadejo said. "We're in talks with a handful of players who are considering it. There are up to four players being talked to right now and they're trying to be organized so they can come out on the same day together. It would make a major splash and take the pressure off one guy. It would be a monumental day if a handful or a few guys come out."

The "journalist" who wrote this story thinks this would be an "awesome" event.

I disagree.

it would be a dark day for the NFL, athletics in general. There is no place in the locker room for a gay - player or correspondent.

It’s stupid. But liberals will love it. They can “celebrate” gayness and feel all superior.

I don’t care if someone is gay. I don’t care if someone is heterosexual. In either case, I don’t want them telling me what they do behind closed doors.

Our society is going down the sewer, and the liberals are the motivating force.

I hate liberals.

no one will ever look at these players in the same way....a pat on the behind will take on horrible overtones....

homosexuality is abnormal...it might be found in nature, and we shouldn't hate them or even discriminate in most things, but its not something one has to let others know about....its a very strange thing actually when you really think about what they do for fun....

Our nation is diseased. We are filled with licentiousness. All that is ever talked about - ever - is sex, or is somehow tied to back into a sexual context. For many Americans the orgasm has become the pinnacle of their meager existence. It has become something to be pursued night and day; the fulfillment of their now pathetic lives. They have become utterly consumed by their own fleshly desires. They are incapable of controlling the appetite that they have allowed to control them.

Will Ayanbadejo be one of them? If he thinks that “talking” these guys/gays into coming out of the closet will help them and their careers, he and they will be in for a rude awakening. No doubt the league and the elites will give great support, but the fans and the players will make life miserable for these guys/gays. Football is a macho, contact sport.

This would kill the NFL ratings.

homosexual = financial loss

see jc penny

see roc hudson dvd sales

see ane heche job offers

the list goes on.

The market for NFL views is not homosexuals. If anything it is a group that would flee any such pairing.

I don’t know...I should think that there’s more than four happy players in the NFL. You’d think a lot more would be happy and gay to make millions playing the game. There might even be some homosexuals in the league.(snicker)

A Raven supports gay marriage and gay-everything. Why is that not surprising.

I can just hear it now - “Well folks, there he is, the first openly gay QB under a still in the closet gay center...isn't that great!”

No longer a question of if but when the pink football will make its debutas well.

I was already annoyed by the all too frequent commercials and late start game times, not to mention the increasingly racist announcers. This’ll do it for me.

Now when one of these players get hit and hurt, they will claim they have been targeted, and sue the league for not protecting them.

There was this gay football player who started out as a tight end but soon became a wide receiver...

homos in football? shocking.

they’ve been pushing homo friendly subliminal advertisement in commercials during the games for a number of years.

simple... if nfl goes fag:

1. don’t go to the games.
2. stop watching the games.
3. don’t buy any nfl gear or paraphernalia

satisfy your football needs with the college games.

It is the media, run predominantly by leftists, giving a false impression. And succeeding, apparently. The younger generation has bought it.

it's also quite common in nature to kill / eat your young and/or kill any competitors / agitators in the group.

I think the demise of football will happen sooner than they think. Who wants to watch a bunch of queers climbing all over each other?
It'll work as well as the broke back mountain movie. No one wants to see that crap.

They’re homosexual, not gay. Let’s stop using the verbage of the left.

Also, Roger Goodell should be happy with all the homo football players. It should cut down on head injuries as I can’t imagine these queer players roughing each other up on the football field.
