I dont see why it would be big deal. But then again I thought it wasnt a big deal Obama got elected. This desire to have homosexuality in all aspects of life where it makes no difference baffles me.
Bears got another potential starter guard in free agency, makes me happy. I am still scared to death they draft Manti Te'o. Please New York pick him first.
It will be a big deal, on a national scale, not just in sports media.
This is partially off topic; but Vetali, are people in Seattle hostile towards Niners fans for the most part? I know that some people are, but I am talking about most of the people. I am somewhat thinking about moving towards the general area from where I currently located.
Back to the current topic of what is going on: I agree with Jib, I think that someone would be less apt to come out right now due to the overwhelming amount of attention it would attract to them, especially when they are someone who wasn't really living in the limelight anyways, nor would want to.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every moment of it.
Sane people are boring. Or else I've been around insane people so long that I can't tell the difference anymore. Either way, chase away those silly notions of linear thought: they have never done anyone good.

Having that in mind, it would have probably gone easier if the "first" person to talk about it openly would have been someone young, and allready openly gay before joining the NFL. They wouldn't have any preconceived image out there and just be themselves. Any veteran coming out will have to face the fact they kept the fact they were gay hidden. Some of the less friendly people towards gay people may use this as an excuse to claim they have a problem with this person coming out cause they "lied" to them for all these years.
Though the rivalry is just starting to get near Baltimore / Steelers level. So who knows in the next few seasons.

It appears a few tweets from Chris Clemons and Doug Baldwin are stirring up the soon to be nuclear bomb on a gay player in the NFL.
The first tweet kinda shows what I mean though, the players in the NFL are so religious that it is bound to create animosity and tension in the locker room one way or another. I agree with Doug Baldwins tweet, just the last line in that article is completely true and debunks that.
Meanwhile in NFL.com's greatest play bracket: Marshawn lynch run 46,398, music city miracle 22,534, for a total of 68,932 votes. The helmet catch vs steve young run: 612,393 and 583,452. Seems legit.
Also don't get why anyone cares about Desean Jackson's punt return.

I'm very excited about my Colts this coming season. We made some good moves in FA to fill much needed spaces, and signing Landry will vastly improve our secondary. The Oline should be better than it has been in years, and Toller will definitely help solidify the CB position. I'm really hoping we get another FA WR (Lloyd, DHB) or draft one in the 1st round, and pick up another guard in the 3rd.

Also: Flynn to the Raiders. It was a few days in the making allready, but not sure what to make of this. Guess getting Flynn for "free" if they trade Palmer to Arizona for late round picks is decent. Should be QB competition for the Raiders though, and I'm not sure it will turn around their fortunes next season.
I would agree that the helmet catch is one of the best plays ever. But I really hate the Giants. I want Marshawn Lynch to win this, he deserves it. Or at least the Steve Young rung, that was beast.
I like the 49ers getting McCoy, they got a good young backup with a lot of experience and a reasonable salary, he should give them just about everything they would get out of Alex Smith as a backup but at a quarter of the price
and the Raiders getting ready to move Palmer, and the Bills signing Kolb, the QB carousel is making it look like nobody is looking to get a starting QB at the top of the draft, so the QBs could really slip and end up someplace where they're backing up veterans
