There's plenty of reasons. Because they don't want to be bothered. Because they want to go on with their lives. Because they don't want to be ostracized. Because they want it to remain private. Because they don't feel like sharing their sexual orientation with the rest of the world. Because they feel it might hurt their image. Because nobody asked. Etc, etc, etc...

From what I've read, PT is overstating things. 1 former player says there are semi-open gay players that are known to be gay, but aren't ostracized.
