Kicker Conner Mertens of Willamette (Oregon) University became the first active college football player to publicly come out as LGBT this week when he told his coach, followed by his team, followed by the world via social media, that he is bisexual.

According to outsports.com, Mertens received an overwhelming show of support from coach Glen Fowles and teammates. Mertens also wrote a letter to his hometown of Kennewick, Wash., and published it on his Twitter account.

"I'm bisexual," Mertens reportedly told Fowles. "I like dudes. I have a boyfriend. And next week, I'm going to tell the world."

"Coach didn't blink an eye," Mertens said. "He talked about how they don't build football players at Willamette, they build men, and that he was proud that I could tell him this about myself."

If he likes dudes and has a boyfriend, he’s not bisexual. I didn’t read one word that indicates past or current interest in girls.

“If he likes dudes and has a boyfriend, he’s not bisexual. I didn’t read one word that indicates past or current interest in girls.”

EXACTLY my thought too. It’s just cover because he couldn’t really admit he’s as gay as a unicorn. Stupid guy to say it outright though, because next time he gets his a$$ plowed into the ground he’s going to be tempted to cry “they’re just picking on me because I’m “bisexual.”

So, what does kicker Conner Mertens of Willamette University want to be — a an ac/dc flip-flopper or a transvestite or transgendered dude or what when he grows up? Is this one sexually confused jockstrap or some halfa**ed publicity seeker trying to further is athletic career by pandering to the pervert lobby? Only Mertens knows for sure...and he's not likely to be telling the truth anytime soon.

Look at me! Look at me!

How about just go away and keep your sexual orientation to yourself. I and most people just don’t care.

A little fake blood conspicuously dabbled will keep all defenders well away from him.

Just why would he feel the need to urburden himself on his coach?

Likes dudes but claims to be bi. Announces it this week so he can tell it next week. At Willamette, they build men but he’s light in the loafers. Egad, the fruit is loopy.

No one cares, douchebag Mertens. Stop wasting space on my computer screen. Good luck with that whole life expectancy thing.

That would be because there is really no such thing as a "bi-sexual." I once read that psychologists agree that given a sexual choice these "bi-sexuals" will ALWAYS choose a member of their own sex.

Saying they're bi-sexual is just a defense mechanism to make themselves feel comfortable about their depravity, in the opinion of the OldPossum.

He needs to be kicked off the team and quarantined. Football sometimes results in bloodshed and the risk of aids infection of other players is too great.

I’m regularly at a loss with this celebration of homosexuality. Heterosexual people don’t go around to everyone saying, “Hi, I’m straight. I have copulate with the OPPOSITE sex.” Meanwhile, we’re supposed to celebrate the fact that someone has sex someone of their own gender?

Why are we lauding how people have sex? I’m at a loss as to how this is relevant in society.

I agree with you. And in my world, you don’t just try gay. A man who has done anything sexual with another man, even once, is a gay.

He's either a pitcher or catcher, doesn't matter that it's football.

This homosexual is so screwed up that he cannot even admit he is gay. Usually homosexuals refer to themselves as gay to escape the admission that they are homosexuals, which in effect, makes them the true definition of homophobes.

This homosexual would have us believe that he is not a homosexual but all the males he has sex with are homosexuals.

He just had to tell the world that he enjoys having foreign objects rammed up his ass. He's so special.
