Jason Collins vs. the voice of locker-room ignorance
South Florida Sun-Sentinel ^ | April 29, 2013 | Dave Hyde

Thank goodness for new Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace's quick fingers.

"All these beautiful women in the world and guys wanna mess with other guys SMH,'' Wallace tweeted Monday.

Thank goodness he explained in 140 quickly-erased characters why it took until 2013 for the first active gay athlete to announce himself in a team sport.

I just read this from Mark Cuban:

On if Collins will play next season:

“I don’t know. Jason has kind of been a journeyman. Teams that have had him have loved him but he’s a backup center and it’s not like those are super difficult to find.”

All the more reason to “come out” now — that way, if nobody signs him, he claims discrimination based on “sexual orientation” and he sues the NBA. Anything to keep the money flowing.

I heard he has 2 illigitimate children.

A quick search on this turned up nothing, but that doesn't mean it's not true. I wouldn't be surprised if it is.

If so, he didn't have them with his girlfriend of 8 years and jilted fiancee Carolyn Moos.

Does anyone have a link on this?

I don’t care about Collins’ orientation

Nor do I, and I have one question for the Jason Collinses of the world:

If it's none of my business, why are you telling me about it?

How come we’re supposed to admire and praise Jason Collins but hate Tim Tebow?

Are all homosexual basketball players as BAD as he is

Well, they tend to have dribbling problems.

IOW, you can get the same production from a younger player, maybe a rookie, for less.

...one can surmise that sports journalists are unduly fascinated by homosexuals in sports.

I think they are unduly fascinated with The Olbermann Way - hoping to get better-paying jobs as regular MSM journalists by loudly espousing leftist ideals.

Here’s what locker room culture is.

A. Do your job.

B. Don’t be a distraction.

That’s it.

And Collins (as of his article) fails on point 2.
