After NBA player Jason Collins broke that barrier this week, the National Football League is making sure it will be ready for any coming out party.
Earlier this year, at least three college football players said they had been asked about their sexual orientation during NFL recruitment interviews, sparking calls for the NFL to do more to fight discrimination.
Just hours before Collins' coming out statement was published by Sports Illustrated on Tuesday, the NFL - America's most popular sport, with $9 billion a year in revenue - released a workplace conduct statement' regarding sexual orientation.

Wide receiver has a whole new meaning!
It’s the old joke coming true. Tight ends becoming wide receivers.
I’ll never watch the NFL again.
President Celebritard today said that sports are important in American life. SPORTS ARE IMPORTANT? In a world where Islamonazis are killing our ambassadors/diplomats/children?
Bread and circuses from the boy king.
I've said it for years: Roger Goodell is a pussy. Somewhere, Pete Rozelle is weeping.....
Hunter S. Thompson was permitted by ESPN to call the abuses at Abu Ghraib more horrifying than the worst war crimes of the NAZIs but oooh, that Rush Limbaugh. He’s so divisive, you know!
Well, suddenly a bunch of sweaty guys chasing each other around a football and grabbing each other has a whole new meaning. That leads me to no longer want to watch football.
Hey, Quarterback, that’s not the football you grabbed.
When I see a beer commercial showing two fruits hugging during a football game I am going to spew.
The world is going crazy.
Something must be in the water.
Everybody suddenly wants a queer around.
sports (as fun as they can be) are NOT important activities for a President of the USA.
national defense against his MuslimBrother/AlQuaida/Hezbellah/PA/Hamas/Etcetera pals... that IS his primary duty, if but he would only get on the right side of it!!
not only did we NOT elect him to be a sports fan or sports cheerleader, we did not elect him to lead the “transformation” of American sports into his idea of a gay sex party
for that, he could have stayed in that Chicago bath house (and left us out of it!)
It's a kid game; great in high school, fine during college/military service teams, but ridiculous for grown men.
After the NFL pulled this crap, maybe more will come to their senses and avoid "Professional football".
I’ve never been an NFL fan myself. I’ll watch my college alum fight it out on Saturdays and an occasional NASCAR race, but sports anymore have become soapboxes for leftist commentators.
There are now awards for supporting the issue...
Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe scored another (off-the-field) award Tuesday, getting a Webby for his online work supporting same-sex marriage.
The award came a day after a breakthrough in gender issues in sports yesterday, when NBA center Jason Collins announced he was gay, the first active player in a major mens American sport league to do so.
Does this mean there will be no more tight ends?
I thought what consenting adults did in their bedrooms was none of our business.
“When the whole society’s gone insane....”
Hey, they're already very heavily in the Susan Komen pink-this-and-pink-that crap that helps to fund a huge part of Planned Predators. So, why not invest in sodomy too.
Other than my poor Browns, I don't watch the NFL anymore . . . tired of their pushing cities around to build and maintain stadiums for them, co-celebrating Susan Komen abortion subsidizing, allowing women into the guy's locker rooms, etc.
Still quite pissed about the Rooney Rule . . . would rather watch college ball.
Locker room time will be lots of fun
Nobody shows their christianity more than Ray Lewis. I don’t believe that the football teams care about that one way or the other. They care about PERFORMANCE. I am so surprised at some of the FREEPERS on here who expect football to have an affirmative action program for Christians who do not play football good at all. Tim Tebow was awful during his opportunities to play for the Jets.
once they do this...
i will not watch or listen to any NFL games.
i will not attend a single game.
i will not buy any NFL paraphernalia.
i won’t support the homo/pedo community of the American political left.
Of course the next move for the fag will be an audience with Obama AT OUR WHITEHOUSE.
First we were ORDERED to be tolerant.
If we made a comment, we were Bullies and Bigots.
Then we were told that DIVERSITY was Good. Even, though this same diversity didn’t show any improvement in production, quality, teamwork, or inter-personal skills. The friendships in the office, and between office workers came to an end. The office became a friendless, sterile environment where we worked, merely because we needed to feed our families.
Now, we are ORDERED to Celebrate these people, as if their strange confusion of their reproductive/digestive tract and fixation upon sex is somehow beneficial to mankind. We are ordered and mandated that these people are a protected class, that somehow no organization is complete without a “hero-worship” of what has been considered obscene and a perversion for millennia.
And things ain’t getting any better.
Why is the left so supportive of gays coming out. The more the merrier for them.
HAD ENOUGH. NO MORE NFL FOR ME AND MY FAMILY. NOT KIDDING.
On the bright side, now all the single mother feminists of America have a role model for their sons! More 0bama's on the way, sans the transgender cross-dressing Nanny!
Ever wonder why the 'gay push' by the radical left, coinciding with their push to take all guns?:
"A society without men or firearms is a society easily controlled by Tyrants"
Its the “national faggots league” now, lol.
Then the faggot appeasing bastards can figure out how to meet those zillion dollar payrolls with 50% of their former audience missing.
We are losing America, and its happening quicker than I imagined..its what the left wants, the total destruction of traditional America..and its happening with each passing day
I wonder what sights will insult our eyes and ears whenever the linemen get down in position?
I’ve held a similar set of beliefs.
And the first man to score in tonight’s (Tigers) baseball game is Tori Hunter who said he wouldn’t be comfortable with openly gay men in the locker room. LOL
The NFL public relations machine made a deal with Manti... "You want me to do what, Mr. Goodell?"
You are absolutely correct re. soapboxes for leftist commentators. I often turn the sound on mute if or when I do watch some random NFL games. But even for college level sports or high school sports, it is non-stop ad nauseum liberal propoganda, eco-environmento crap, gushing over this black player or that black player, etc. Now the liberal propoganda will be gushing over this gay faggot or that gay lesbian....barf!!!
I enjoy playing sports, but I don't enjoy watching them much any longer.
There are simply no adequate words to express my complete and utter disgust with half the creatures populating the dissolving remnants of what used to be the United States of America.
Paul Tagliabue’s son is gay. He is really pushing it at Georgetown, where he is a trustee.
if fans wanted to see homosexuals in sports the WNBA would not be stuggling.
This is beyond financial stupidity, this is finacial suicide.
Some homosexuals activist said “nobody who matters” objects. The homosexuals will do a push poll to simulate normal peopl praising this.
The fact is this is a disgusting situation and has no place in civilized society. (no need for religious arguments)
nobody is going to pay money to see the fighting liberachis.
most normal fathers would have disinherited any child that engages in that suicidal behavior.
Hey! That’s Gay!!!
