One of many reasons why the 49ers should lose!

The link above will take you to the story, ugly is the word that comes to mind. Having lived in the City for six years, and in this time and place this kind of crap reportedly said burns me. Now there may be a reasonable explanation, all in fun, just joking, but there is a time and a place, never, and certainly not publicly.

Ugly, sad, and disgusting. Of course he had to backpedal.  People like that should be disciplined somehow.

So one ignorant comment by one player negates all the positive involvement in the LGBT community that the 49's have participated in and supported?

The only reason guys like this Culliver idiot don't want to play football alongside gay men is because they are terrified that some "faggot" (to use their own likely terminology) could be a MUCH better player than they are. They're scared shitless of being athletically bested by someone they see as less than a man. Spineless, bigoted jerks.

I hope they fine him and impose whatever other penalties they can. But do I think it reflects on the team as a whole? No, not necessarily.

I hope his teammates "get him up outta there".

Its amazing how that football players words in his head didn't match up with the words in his heart until management helped him sort it out , all that in the space of one day . This is a prime example of how corporations are people too .

There's another dynamic involved; A lot of these types don't want openly gay men (or even suspected gay men) in a naked situations.  Since many of them have hidden feelings, it's almost sexual in nature. 

I noticed in highschool that the truly secure men had no issue with showering around suspected gays.  I also learned early on that the ones who screamed "faggot" the loudest would be the first one to "play" around at the first opportunity.  I don't have pictures to prove it, but it happened quite often.   :o  AAHH, the memories.

No

Let's see. You queens support a violent game that results in numerous severe head injuries and then you expect them to walk up to a microphone and make any sense. OK.

Here is another wrinkle where 49er players appearing in an "It Gets Better" video forget about its purpose:

http://aol.sportingnews.com/nfl/story/2013-02-01/super-bowl-2013-it-gets-better-video-san-francisco-49ers-ahmad-brooks-isaac-sopo?icid=maing-grid7%7Cmain5%7Cdl6%7Csec1_lnk3%26pLid%3D264745

 ::) ::)

This is a corporation, we can argue the definition until forever, but bottom line is, they are are a corporation. With that said, any corporation has standards of conduct and policy, training, etc. There is no excuse, if there is one player, and now there appears others, then the system and processes are broken. Clearly the message is broken and untrue.

I hope their tight ends get taken down by an inch or two, or 9.

So pro sports teams corporations have codes of conduct that players employees must follow.  If one of them breaks a rule, then the entire corporation is guilty?  They usually call the employee out on their action and offer whatever coaching is needed to comply with said rules.
