So yeah, they are free to discriminate all they want, but if it messes with those greenbacks they will change quickly and accordingly, and we can take the 49ers organization's immediate refutation of this clown's remarks as an acknowledgement that they know all too well this ain't going to go down nicely with its consumers.
Just to be clear, and before this thread gets locked: Your comment, to my comment, is exactly how i feel (minus the Packers ownership stuff because thats a scam). My whole point being that if youre an organization thats dumb enough to discriminate, go ahead and do so, but know that its at your own peril. The ultimate regulator is the American Consumer.

Earlier this season i wondered if Goodell was smart or not when he decided to not remain mum, when Ayanbadejo spoke out in favor of gay marriage.

Goodell supports players who speak out on political issues | ProFootballTalk

Then Raven's center Matt Birk came out (pun?) with a traditional marriage arguement, and Goodell stayed quite.

Birk wades into same-sex marriage debate | ProFootballTalk

Goodell ended up praising the democratic process and free speach part of Ayanbadejo's comments without specifically endorsing Ayanbadego's views, effectively appeasing the pro-traditional and pro-gay crowds. Staying quite on Birk's comments was a no-brainer and pulled the league out of the debate, which is perfect for times like right now.

You know these types of comments are going to continue to happen. The gay marriage debate isnt going away anytime soon. And 5 years ago what Culliver said wouldnt have raised any eyebrows, and im sure things like it were said all the time at laughed about. But even with the eyebrows of today raising, the comments are going to continue. Goodell cant do anything about it, and on a pendulumtopic he cant take a stance either by chastising one view and praising the other. In retrospect he played it perfectly.

You seem to ask that question a lot. What does it matter?

Re: Gays in the NFL. How Do You Really Feel?

How hard is it to spell the word "straight"?

That has got to be the stupidest thing I have ever read, and that will be my ONLY contribution to this thread.

As to your comment that gays and men should have separate showers, you forget the main point. They are STILL men. They aren't some inferior being or some side gender, and to treat them as such is laughable and ignorant to say the least.

You seem to have a deep thing for these animals you keep posting about. Few post backs you came out and now this.

I'm a straight man. But under your system, I would intentionally use the gay locker room as an act of defiance against injustice. What you suggest is "equal rights" actually is segregation. You do realize that as a society we left "separate but equal" in the dust as unjust quite some time ago?

With all respect, in your thinking about gender you are a sad dinosaur.

Why? You act is being gay is some freak show at the circus. A mutant out of X-men. These people are normal everyday joes (and janes) like you and me, they simply are attracted to people of the same sex.


So no I don't give a shit if some dude I rooted for is gay, nor do I care to know because it's not really relevant to why I cheered for said player.

It's like that episode of Seinfeld were Elaine isn't sure if she's dating a black guy or not and Jerry said what does it matter and Elaine replies because its something Im curious about.

Believe me I'm not in the minority here as to who would like I know who in the nfl is gay. I mean if we made a thread on Teo and lots of people there are speculating if he's gay or not than I'm pretty sure if there was a thread on this topic it would grow in popularity just like this one has.
Yes. Let's have a thread which is baseless pure speculation without evidence (since no one has come out). Further, let's make that thread about an issue which is none of our business. Great idea.

Nowhere did I imply or say you wanted them kicked out. I said you were treating them as a separate gender and you are by wanting separate locker rooms for gays.

Male/Female is a gender.

Heterosexual/Homosexual is sexual preference.


Being homosexual doesn't change your gender. Neither should it change your bathroom or locker room.
