cyberdude558:
NEW ORLEANS – San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver has reportedly made inflammatory comments regarding homosexuality in football just a few days before Super Bowl XLVII.

Shock jock Artie Lange revealed he had interviewed Culliver at media day Tuesday and aired a segment on his show that night, where the player insisted that any gay players would not be welcome on the team.

"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."

When quizzed by Lange whether any homosexual athletes would need to keep their sexuality a secret in football, Culliver responded: "Yeah, come out 10 years later after that."

In the NFL's long history, there has never been an openly gay active player. However, sexual orientation has increasingly come into the spotlight recently.

The one week out the year that every single word you say will probably make the news, why not just shut the hell up?

49ers released a statement....

“The San Francisco 49ers reject the comments that were made yesterday, and have addressed the matter with Chris.  There is no place for discrimination within our organization at any level. We have and always will proudly support the LGBT community.”

Morgan:
what the hell? - he's got First Amendment rights - he doesn't like two dudes having sex with each other - he thinks the act is deplorable -he lives in the United States but yet can't express his belief because his employer doesn't want gay football fans to boycott their games. And in SF, I'm sure there are many.

Rusty:
Really can wait to hear the end of gays in the NFL, Ray Lewis murder and PEDś, Callahan throwing the Super Bowl for Gruden, Tim Tebow, Freeman sucks, Schiano is a Nazi, etc. The Super Bowl can come soon enough so we can get on with fixing the Bucs.

gone:
It's horrible he doesn't want gay men in the showers with him. 

Just as horrible as women who don't want straight men in the showers with them. 

TheChronicHotAir:
Chris Culliver: awesome words, bro.

Hate:
I expect a hollow apology tmrw

Bayfisher:
This country has turned into a bunch of pansies.  He shouldn't apologize to anyone.  Do gay people ever make anti-straight comments?  Thought so.

He didn't say he could tolerate them I'm not sure what to call those people. He said they have no place near him that is more than not liking it. How would he feel if someone said they don't want to have blacks on the team? Free speech is taking advantage of a lot these days no morals.
