Tuesday's Poll Do you care about the sexual orientation of your favorite athlete?
(Excerpt) Read more at dailynews.com ...
From the related story: "Collins jumps to the front of the line to become the "first openly gay active athlete in a major American team sport."
I do not care or want to know about anyone else’s sexual orientation unless I am in bed with her.
I find it annoying if the player is a butt pirate or a womanizer. Flaunting in our faces their sexual actions and preferences just ticks me off. Stick to the athletics. If they want to be known for being queer then go into the porn filming careers.
I don’t care enough to have a favorite athlete.
Thanks (I think..) to Bon of Babble for this one!
" It'll continue with an appearance Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America." As for it being along the lines of what Robinson did with the Dodgers in 1947, Collins' former Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers said it best: "If you have learned anything from Jackie Robinson, it is that teammates are always the first to accept. It will be society who has to learn tolerance."
Compares him to Jackie Robinson. hurl.
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. (multiple votes using multiple internetz devices are allowed!) And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
I actually don’t care but if it must be discovered I’d rather someone other than me gets to ask David Ortiz if he’s gay.
Wasn’t he USC grad?
Your post nailed it, IMHO. I don’t care who they climb in the sack with. I also don’t want to hear about it from some nobody out to “make history” and a buck. This “in your face” crap from homosexuals like Collins has got to stop.
I am sick and tired of these people. If the liberal crowd really loved these perverts they would get them help and pray for them not laud their bravery in letting everyone know they are Butt Jockeys!!
I don’t have a favorite athlete
I really hate it when commentators compare homosexuals to the Blacks’ struggle for civil rights.
I wish more Black “leaders” would get as offended by this as I do.

Gays are concerned only with the care and wellbeing of their sexual organs ~ nothing more than that. This one probably figured football gave him access
In passing, I heard on the radio that he only played 6 games this year and scored 6 points
A certain pro golfer’s shinnanigans were as distastful and the shinninigans of the dung punchers.
I REALLY don't want to know!
Ah, if he is mentally deranged I care if he has access to young boys. This is in fact a hallmark of male homos and the reason they seek entry into every organization with a high population of young males. Queers should be monitored, not married.
“In passing, I heard on the radio that he only played 6 games this year and scored 6 points.”
I think he now has job security.
\ As one other FReeper said, only when I am in bed with a woman(or trying to be)do I care about sexual orientation.:)
isnt that racist
Modern politics has finally put it’s mark on professional sports. And like everything else politicians touch, professional sports is now soiled, degenerate, foul, dirty and corrupt. I’m sure there’s always been some corruption, but with the added stench of politics...I won’t waste any more of my time on it. I’m so sick to death of commies and poofters.
Lol, the guy had a fiancee for EIGHT YEARS, Carolyn Moos, that didn’t know he was gay.
What the heck?
Not bad, not bad at all.....
This “marginal player” was the worst player on the roster for a team that won 29, lost 53 games in their fifth consecutive losing season last year. He averages one shot and one rebound per game in his six playing minutes, and he makes a shot in about one out of six games. It doesn’t get worse than this guy in the NBA. His claim to fifteen fleeting minutes of fame is coming out as gay; otherwise even his teammates might not know who he is.
Meanwhile the gay journalistas and editors who are pushing this turd remain closeted while they seek their activist agenda propaganda in the mainstream (pink) media.
I DO care to know why these stories are so important to the people paid to read the news in front of a camera.
He can retired to the speaking circuit (and even get school districts to pay his way ask he speaks out for "tolerance"). Not to mention the honorary role as Grand Marshall Kleegle Dragon of the Gay Pride parades.
THIS JUST IN: Joe Montana is turning in his grave.
I’m sick of people who think the world needs to know what type of sex they prefer. We don’t see straight people running around announcing their sexual preference. It must be a mental disorder that gays suffer from.
I’m in your camp. I am very apathetic toward sports. I frankly I just don’t care what the athletes do, what they play or how they play. It is a completely foreign world to me, much like Hollywood. I get a lot of heat at work over that from time to time. I just don’t care.
And I don't even know his name and would not know him if he walked up and slapped me.
The reason I don't like him?
Because he insists on telling me where he likes to put his peepee.
I don't CARE!
I don't want to hear about how he wipes his bum either.
I don't want to know that he likes picking his nose.
I don't want to know what he jacks off to or even if he does.
But I have no choice because there were no less then four different stories today on Yahoo alone.
Please, for the love of humanity, can we stop letting it all hang out?
I don’t want to know HOW someone has sex, and when you announce you’re a homo, we all know how that person is doing it, and frankly, that is TMI. Keep your dirty business to yourself.
Over the last several years I have found myself caring less and less about professional sports. The professional sports industry keeps coming up with reasons for me not to watch. And then, when I look at the darkness this country and this world are headed toward as the moral slide continues, professional sports just seems like one more meaningless distraction keeping the masses pacified as their freedoms and money are stolen out from under their noses.
Do you care about the sexual orientation of your favorite athlete?

Bread and circuses.
I just about quit watching pro sports after David Robinson retired from the Spurs. Same goes for college pro sports, except to watch Johnny Football Manziel at TAMU.
Since I stopped watching ALL professional sports around 1980, I suppose my answer must yes and no.
