Super Bowl Player Steps On It, Says He Wouldn’t Tolerate Gay Player   Leave a comment

How does that saying go? When you’ve already dug yourself a hole, stop digging!

Apparently, someone forgot to tell San Francisco 49ers Chris Culliver, who decided to step on it with cleated track shoes this week with some not-so-temperate remarks concerning one of his opponents in this week’s Super Bowl, Baltimore Ravens DT Brendan Ayanbadejo…

Last week, Ayanbajedo, who is an outspoken supporter of the LGBT community, said that he was hoping to use the Super Bowl as a way to advocate for both marriage equality and various anti-bullying efforts. This is very admirable of Ayanbajedo, especially when you consider that football is probably the roughest and most masculine of American sports and when you consider that, although there no current players who are out of the closet, it doesn’t mean there probably aren’t any playing football at present.

Tell that to Culliver, who has apparently decided to play the NFL championship’s resident jerk, saying(quoting Think Progress)….

“I don’t do the gay guys man,” said Culliver, whose Niners play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. “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.”(Yahoo Sports, 30 Jan. 2013)

You may now pick up your jaws from the floor, ladies and gentlemen, for Culliver’s remarks most certainly qualify for boneheaded remark of the year….and we’re not even out of January yet. First off, just imagine all the vitriol ole’ Mr. Culliver’s probably getting right now over those remarks; makes you wonder how fast it’ll take him to apologize…that is, if the NFL doesn’t b—-slap him over it first. Then there’s the comically perverse irony here of a man playing football for a team(the San Francisco 49ers) that’s from probably the most LGBT-friendly city in the United States.

Like I said earlier, when you’re in a hole, stop digging….something the NFL needs to tell Chris Culliver; I will say this…if I were Commissioner Roger Goodell, I’d suspend Culliver for the Super Bowl and I’d make the announcement as public as possible just to get the point across; some things are decidely unfunny.
