He doesn't have to like Gays.

I don't think he worded it properly, but he has a right to his words. If you want to hold accountable to his words, that's fine. But I'm not going to hang the guy for stating his honest truth. Does he have a right to speak for the team? No. But he shouldn't hide what he really thinks if he's asked a question. If he doesn't swing that way, then that's who he is. Acceptance goes both ways. If a man wants the ****, then that's his perogative. Culliver shouldn't have to pretend that he likes it.

Unless this Culliver fellow is taking a gay person and beating him to death for being gay, he isn't doing anything wrong by being honest with himself and others. By all means feel "ashamed" and feel "disgusted" and "indignified" by someone telling the truth. It proves that we lack a spine.
Right, and he had said "we don't want to no crackas on our team" I bet you'd have blown your top. What a joke.

Anyways, glad the 49ers are handling his stupid remarks well.

A friend of mine was a chef in Philly back in the early 80's and one of his cooks was an X Pittsburgh Steeler,
(can't remember the name) but his nick-name in the restaurant was "the African queen". Says he came out of the closet only after he was released and not signed by another team.
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.

Chris Culliver apologizes for derogatory comments

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver released the following statement:

"The derogatory comments I made yesterday were a reflection of thoughts in my head, but they are not how I feel. It has taken me seeing them in print to realize that they are hurtful and ugly. Those discriminating feelings are truly not in my heart. Further, I apologize to those who I have hurt and offended, and I pledge to learn and grow from this experience.”

Shock jock Artie Lange interviewed Culliver during Media Day on Tuesday and asked him about gay players.

"I don't do the gay guys, man," said Culliver. "I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do. Can't be with that sweet stuff. Nah...can't be...in the locker room man. Nah."

I don't think a person should have to hide who they are to make insecure ppl feel comfortable. Do you know what that does to a person, to have to pretend they're somebody else in order to be accepted

Edit: Sorry, must have quoted the wrong post. I meant to use the post right before it.

Everything gets blown out of proportion in the media... not just quarterbacks' comments. Players need to learn to watch what they say. Culliver will probably have to do sensitivity training or something. It is just funny since Culliver plays in the gay capital of America.

The only group that is allowed to be discriminated against now is white male heterosexual christians. You can call them every name in the book and not have to worry about any ramifications. In fact, it is rewarded and encouraged.

Yea, what kind of names are people calling xtian a these days?

I personally love to refer to the clergy as professional liars and child abusers, but I'm not famous so that's probably why I get away with ut

Seems like he was just being stupid. Let it go, I don't think he's a homophobe.

Go 49ers (for now)
