My article today is yet another example of why athletes should not be role models. San Francisco 49ers corner back Chris Culliver had the following to say regarding his knowledge of any homosexual teammates.
''I don't do the gay guys, man. I don't do that. 'Ain't got no gay people on the team. They gotta get up outta here if they do. Can't be with that sweet stuff.''
This guy oozes class act. He has a clear fear of homosexuals. Why though? I have my own suspicions but to write them hear could be considered libel and I do not have the money to fight a frivolous law suit. It is a shame that this is his sentiment in what should be a progressive time. I mean it is 2013. Aren’t we supposed to be better than this?
I understand it is his opinion but if he believes that none of his teammates are gay he might be surprised one day. I am not suggesting any are, I am just saying with as many players as there are on a football team, it is not outside the realm of possibility. There are most likely many in the whole of the league.
Even his eventual apology sounds like something an idiot would cook up. Not that I am calling him an idiot (the whole libel thing) but seriously what an effen idiot… Here is how his apology read:
''The derogatory comments I made yesterday were a reflection of thoughts in my head, but they are not how I feel,''
So you often think things you do not feel, Chris? Sometimes I wish people had a mute button because I would mute this moron and lose the remote. Maybe I would leave the remote in a gay night club because his fear of the gay man would prevent him from retrieving the remote.
Perhaps this dolt has taken a few too many blows, no pun intended, to the head. Maybe he should just shut up and play football and leave the talking to a 5 year old with better sense.
