"Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo was released by Baltimore this offseason, and on the heels of comments earlier this week where he suggested that he was cut in part because of his outspoken stance on gay rights and equality issues, Ayanbadejo clarified himself to the Baltimore Sun on Friday. During an hour-long interview he made it clear that he harbors no resentment for the Ravens, and respects them for the support they offered him throughout his career both on and off the field. But that's not all.
 
When the conversation turned to his work with gay rights and the question of when we might see an openly gay player in the NFL, Ayanbadejo had this to say:
 
"I think it will happen sooner than you think," Ayanbadejo said. "We're in talks with a handful of players who are considering it. There are up to four players being talked to right now and they're trying to be organized so they can come out on the same day together. It would make a major splash and take the pressure off one guy. It would be a monumental day if a handful or a few guys come out."

Football fans, of which I am not one (and have no idea who this guy Ayanbadejo is) (nor care), here is the writer's comment on this supposed coming out of the closet event.

"In other words, everyone prepare themselves for the most insane day of the NFL offseason in human history. A day to make the sports world explode, basically.
 
And it would be awesome."

Do you agree? Does anybody really care?

I don't care, but I'm not a guy who has to shower with them. I am curious as to Brendon's motivations here. How many other truly "straight" guys are so passionate about homosexual politics?

Homosexual people who insist on telling everybody all about their private activities bore me to tears.  Yawn
