Openly Gay Kicker Alan Gendreau Working Toward Cracking An NFL Roster
CBS New York ^ | 4/23/13

Posted on 04/24/2013 1:13:55 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Alan Gendreau is just another ex-college football player trying to get onto a National Football League roster.

Except for one thing: He’s openly gay.

Gendreau kicked for Middle Tennessee State from 2008-2011, and he did so exceptionally well. The all-time leading scorer in Sun Belt Conference history, the Apopka, Fla., native amassed 295 points in his career at Murfreesboro.

The 23-year-old, who has been openly gay since he was 15 years old, wasn’t drafted last year and never caught on with an organization.

He’s not about to let his dream die, however. In fact, the former college star thinks he’s more prepared now than ever.

No wonder Alex Karass said he hated having to shower with kickers.

Gendreau does acknowledge, however, what an inspiration he can be to millions of people, and he’s ready and willing to embrace that. He is determined to help those who are afraid to be true to themselves and are scared to come out.

He can also turn millions of people off...people who prefer he keeps his sexual preference quiet.

So another no talent ‘kicker’ wants a try at the NFL because he is gay.......yea I can see how that will add to the game.
Just, thinking if they don’t let him play.......chaching, bet he has a lawyer already lined up.

I have no problem with this person being gay and wanting to be an NFL kicker. If he was serious about it, he would not advertise his sexuality by giving interviews to national media that focus on his homosexuality. He would do the best job he could as a kicker and would try to get hired based on ability, not his status as an “openly gay kicker.”

The most important question: How will he find a purse that matches his kicking shoes? Style, of course, HAS to be at the top of his to-do list.

Yea. WIDE openly. Not a stretch to believe him either.

So ... does this individual’s obsessive interest in perverted sex acts improve his ability to kick a football through the goalposts? Does it improve his ability to get along with his teammates? Does it improve the teams entertainment value to its fans?

The MSM will be all over this story from now until the first week of the season. REAL important news. Obama is already preparing his quotes about “Folks want change in the NFL. We need change in the attitudes of professional sports organizations.” This is all meaningless distraction, away from issues that matter.

He started as a Tight End, but moved to Wide Receiver before he settled on kicking.

He won’t make it. Unfortunately for libtards, the recent statements by that black athlete (can’t remember his name) represent the widespread views of many in the sporting world, even if they hide it. They don’t want to be around this.

These people should audition for Glee. Not the NFL.

No, you don't have any ideas. You probably don't have a clue, either.

Sad.

I think it will go badly when some black player calls him out. The media will have to choose a side.

I thought most kickers were already gay. When the NFL gets an openly gay Center, that’s going to be news. </sarc>

Until his behaviour and attitudes become disruptive.

If murderers and rapists are not disruptive, a gay kicker, as long as he does his job well, will not be disruptive.
