I just felt a little more needed to be done but again I am not the law maker here.

To me if this was my site that is a ban-able offense.

Don't assume things aren't dealt with behind the scenes.

And don't you ever notice how some people just disappear?

I hear you.That one sequence of posts just had really left a bitter taste in my mouth. Plus in my mind there was some build up to it as well. I just felt at the time gay slurs were being thrown around a bit to much on this board or if you you will taken to casually. That sequence of post was the straw that broke the camels back to me.

Ok enough said on my part. Great site, great posters and great moderators. At times we will never see eye to eye but I would honestly buy anyone on this board a beer if I meet you in person. I truley enjoy everyone on here.

I'm guilty of this as well. Of course I don't really think he is gay, and even if he was it wouldn't matter anyways. It's just in the heat of a rant, especially about the Cowboys QB, it's hard to always be politically correct. And it doesn't help that his real name makes the nickname just "too easy".

That being said, I will make an effort to stop using the term, as it is pretty juvenile.

Yet I doubt any of who throw the phrase around consider that a) some of the NFL's best players (past and present) are gay or that b) when you slander his name like that you may not realize that a fellow Redskins fan is on this board reading that and feeling a bit hurt maybe because they are actually gay.

Anyhow, like I said it's not the same as what's happened in Buffalo. And I'm sure many of you who call Tony Romo Tony Homo don't think of it as a gay slur. But I thought I'd just put that out there.
Really who? I can't remember any NFL players coming out. Not that it matters.

This article says that none have come out.

Re: Teen still being bullied after suicide

There are several from the past that have come out (including former Skins great Jerry Smith). Just b/c they have not come out doesn't mean they aren't there:

It's just a matter of time before an active player comes out.

No active players have come out, but they exist. And there are former players who are as well, including a few who have come out. Among them former TE Jerry Smith a member of the "70 Greatest Redskins" team

Esera Tuaolo, Former NFL Player, Comes Out as Gay

Esera Tuaolo is the only name I remember, even though he was before my time. I read an article about him coming out a couple years ago. But it'd be pretty naive to think gay people don't play sports. I'm sure they play in the league today. But I do feel bad for them, having to keep it under wraps for fear their career could be over.

Re: Teen still being bullied after suicide

Sadly its not just the players in the NFL that have to hide the fact they are gay for fear of reprisal, many coaches, owners and even cheerleaders may also be fearful to come out. Several years ago 2 female cheerleaders were caught having sex with each other and ended up getting fired for violating a “rule that bans conduct that's embarrassing to the team or organization”.

Two Panthers cheerleaders dismissed - NFL - ESPN
