IF this were to come out to be a gay issue, it would go from being shocking to bizarre to shameful to downright sad.
No they could twist this into him being a figure head for gay people in sports...
If he came out of the closet it would be HUGE in terms of media attention
there has never been an openly gay player in all of professional sports...or Div 1 football either.
It would be interesting to see what NFL teams would want to take that type of attention on.
