Seven Doubts You Should Clarify About Gay Football Players | gay football players

It seems that the NFL is more open than ever to having gay football players. Some openly gay players have come out and given an interview on ESPN radio about the possibility of coming out in the game if they had a gay player on their team. Tom Crabtree of the Raiders spoke with Joe Pisano of the San Francisco Giants about the possibility of a gay football player joining his team. There are other comments from openly gay football players including Michael Sam, who is currently a free agent, and Colin Edwards, who are out with his partner since 2008. The two men's relationship has caused controversy, but the two men have been involved in a public love affair for some time.

Will the NFL allow gay football players in their locker rooms? One person that said he would bet money that they would not be Roger Clemens, who is the pitcher for the Boston Red Sox. Others are not so sure about the league's openness, stating that the NFL should make a rule against players engaging in a homosexual act when it comes to showers and bathrooms.

Many teams and leagues in different sports have a very distinct set of rules about being gay. For example, basketball and baseball have a code of conduct, which prohibits employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation. It is also illegal for players to have sex with other players while they are on the job. Gay marriage was recently legalized in the state of New York, which would make it illegal for an openly gay player to be in the team if he were married. Although the league does not have a rule against gay marriage per se, there have been complaints from other teams and leagues about players getting caught in the shower with men that they thought were men, and engaging in oral sex.

The NFL is now allowing gay football players to participate in the game, according to a recent statement from commissioner Roger Clemens. According to the Sporting News, Clemens “believes the game can and will grow in popularity and acceptance.” This may bode well for the gay community, who have long felt discriminated against in major league sports. However, this does raise the same issue of privacy, as well. Will players still feel the need to keep their personal relationship private in order to be accepted by their teammates?

Some gay football players have taken to the court to claim unfair treatment by the league. lawsuits have been filed against the NFL, claiming it is discriminating against gay people. The suits argue that the NFL has a double standard because some team owners and coaches are outspoken against gay relationships, but others tolerate them. Therefore, they say, the NFL is guilty of permitting and tolerating discrimination.

Right now, about two-thirds of the NFL's active rosters are comprised of players who are gay. The New York Giants are the only team to have players who are out in the open. As it becomes more widely accepted in society, more gay football players will come out and be seen by more mainstream fans. Will the stigma go away?

One lawsuit in particular claims that the league discriminated against a gay player because he is gay. The player, according to the lawsuit, was harassed on the job by other players for being gay, and he was also verbally attacked by several other gay players. He believes that this behavior was a direct result of his sexuality. Will the NFL do anything to reprimand these players? And if so, how?

Until recently, there was no clear answer to these questions. However, changes in the world seem to be a factor in the answer. People who were once silent have come out against discrimination, visible trends have shown that attitudes are changing. If the NFL can come out against gay football players, then it can do the same for sexual minorities. And yes, it can even be the key to popularity!
