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.
If they can play nobody will care.
