Believe he was only a 2 year player but none-the-less he was gay.
I believe they're better off keeping it to themselves, I mean do you really want to be tackled by a player that really enjoys tackling men or be in the shower with them.
Don't ask don't tell, everyone is happy then.
You had me til the end.
Gay players should be able to have their partners around as freely as straight players do and the people who love the player should be able to support him in the stands, etc...just as those who love any player supports them.
