Phoenix Suns president and CEO Rick Welts, in an effort to breach what he sees as the tiptoed-around topic of homosexuality in men's team sports, recently met with friends, associates and a newspaper reporter to reveal he is gay.
Welts, believed to be the first man in a prominent position in men's sports who has declared his homosexuality, says he wants to now mentor other gay people who seek to pursue a career in sports, according to The New York Times.

He´d better stay out of the locker room.
My cousin. Gotta pray for him.
Well last year they wore uni’s that said “Los Suns” (or whatever) to support the illegal immigrants.
What next: Phoenix Sthsuns?
Much ass slapping ensued.
Why do homosexuals have the need to tell the world their sexual escapades? Does anyone really care? Do heterosexuals run around shouting “I’m straight - look at me”? Why the need for attention and approval? But we need to celebrate mental illness, I guess. Just leave us alone and get back in the closet.
“says he wants to now screw other gay people who seek to pursue a career in sports,”
Much ass slapping ensued.
Next up? A proposed name change to the “Phoenix Buns”
I am sure he wants to help them at a very young age.
Response: I'll bet he does.
Hey everyone! Heads up, I’m a hetro!
People don’t understand the threat of homosexuality. It’s like yeast. It wants to spread as much as possible and eliminate contrary lifestyles (regular marriage, etc). The “gay agenda” includes long-term goals of mocking and doing away with regular marriage. Also, the banning of the Bible.
Where there indications or is this a complete surprise?
No doubt he’s a great recruiter, too.
Bet he has hours and hours of secret video of the locker room. He personally washes the jock straps.
So this is no secret.
He is an activist.
See my post 12. Maybe we need to ‘adopt’ their attitude. But it is lame announcing who you sleep with at your meetings with strangers. Sick.
I can hardly wait for May 21 to get out of this madness. There is no where else to go. So, I might as well jump on that bandwagon. I’ll do it again in 2023.
Anyway, I care about him personally, but will fight against the "gay rights" myth.
This is a blanket annoyance about all minorities: why do they always need to segregate into their little groups? Who will be left, when everything always has to be divided into skin color, nationality, who you want to sleep with, etc. it’s getting ridiculous.
Can a black man mentor a white kid? Can a gay man mentor a straight kid? Do we need separate islands for everyone?
In other news, Ricky Martin says he’s back to pretending to be straight.
There's the Hoop!
They should keep it to themselves and not try to cram it dow . . .
I am sorry if I was callous.
I do feel your sorrow.
I guess the net isn’t the only thing that goes “swish”.
Virulent. The battle rage NOW to prevent that stuff later. People don't believe it so they let it keep going until their children are forced to know, understand, and eventually participate in this perversion. By then it's probably too late. Society's literally gone to the same hell as Sodom and Gomorrah.
Sick. No wonder this ass clown supported illegals. So next year, there will “leather chaps night” or “gay night”.
But I'll fight the "gay rights" myth and the gay agenda reality every perverted step of the way.
Well I guess it’s time I let everyone know where I stand. After all it seems that telling the the world about your sexuality is the thing to do. So here goes. I’m heterosexual. There I’ve said it. I feel so much better. I just told my wife of 33 years and she said “well no shit.”
Well, now that he is successful, activism follows.
You seem to have a good grasp of what’s happening even if you feel helpless to change it.
You are steadfast to fight against family and money.
And I do understand how we turn a blind eye when we care about family, at the peril of our children.
I am sorry for your troubles Jim.
We all have a black sheep in the family that demands attention.
“e, etc). The gay agenda includes long-term goals of mocking and doing away with regular marriage. “
Also the acceptance and promotion of all manner of perversions, like polygamy, polyamory, pederasty, fornication, adultery, etc.
Bet he had a domineering mother/mother figure in his life.
I used to but it never helped :)
I suspect he came out because he has done a lousy job with the team and deserves to be fired and maybe this will pressure the team to keep him on for a while longer. As a president of an NBA team, he’s going to get fired anyway. Coming out will only make it much more difficult to find another NBA gig in any position.
Stupid move on his part.
Because if they don’t, some idiot gets the idea of blackmailing them.

Thank you very much!!
Rebellion is brewing!!
DON'T TREAD ON ME!!
These days? When was the last time someone was blackmailed for being a homosexual?
He’s always been drawn to men in shorts.
I think he should put his money where his mouth is and have an all-gay team.
More often than you would think. I can think of one actor who is constantly dealing with rumors of the sort.
Maybe he can put in some hidden cameras.
After all, what is the point of having all those luscious men working for you if you can't have some perks? Why do you think straight men own sports teams? So they can hire a bunch of stunning cheerleaders to look at instead of watching their team lose.
Phoenix Suns? Sounds like a name of a hockey team.
