Skip to comments.Gay player could score big
Posted on 04/27/2013 9:39:08 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement
The first openly gay man in a major American team sport may turn out to be former Middle Tennessee State kicker Alan Gendreau, who hopes to get a shot at the NFL this year. And, if hes successful, that could translate into millions of dollars in endorsements and speaking engagements, experts say.
Whether its the Sun Belt Conferences leading scorer or someone else, the athlete who makes sports history by coming out will likely be sought after by companies that want to appeal to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender population, whose annual buying power last year was estimated at $790 billion, said Bob Witeck, president of Witech Communications in Washington, D.C.

I doubt he’ll make it either. What’s the assumption here anyway? That somehow having a queer play on the team will make homosexuals rush to buy merchandise and tickets. Good luck. Most of them watch modeling shows and porn during the Superbowl. Not exactly a football crowd.
Why not ... after all he is an oppressed minority? He should be given special consideration because, after all, he is a pervert and we all know perverts are special.
What .. He gonna do commercials for KY or sump tin’ - please spare me!
Smear the queer!!!!!
I figure the first team to roster an admitted turd poker will be either San Fransicko or New England.
His name will be something like “Richard Breth”.
A swish Kicker who really could boom,
Took a lesbian to his dorm room.
..But they argued a lot
..About who should do what,
And quite how and with what and to whom.
Not only was I correct, the guy isn't even in the NFL!
And may NEVER be. But who cares? GAY! Two snaps up for me!
America is really going downhill fast. Now deviancy and perversion is rewarded and applauded and Christianity is put down and threatened.
I shudder to think how this nation is declining. It is the Roman Empire and Sodam and Gomorrah all wrapped up in one.
God help us.
There was once a Negro League, let’s have a Poofter League!

Now he can afford to buy millions of condoms...
Brilliant marketing move. Hey boss, i propose we increase our marketing budget share 20% to chase after 5.5% potential market. Ya know more bang for the buck.
What percentage loss will be realized by those whose sense are offended. Specially first commercial we see a guy kissing another guy while grabbing his butt.
No, I'm not trying to be funny.
We get it already; you like having other men sodomize you! Wow, something to be proud of; something to celebrate.
These faggots can do whatever they want; most people deep in their hearts know this behavior is deviant and sick. It goes against nature. Most faggots understand this as well. They think if they can get people to accept it, it will be become normal. It will never happen. Queers throughout history have tried in vain to have a society accept their ultimate perversion.
Gay men enjoy a shitty sex life.
Let this idiot actually accomplish something first before doing articles on him. I guess the media is trying to push the team into bringing him onto their roster in a move for diversity.
Your words are frank but 100 accurate.
There is a funny youtube video of Norm MacDonald making fun of parents of gay people saying they’re “proud of their gay kid”.
Here is the video.
WARNING VERY ADULT LANGUAGE:
That’s ALL that matters to most of them is that EVERYBODY know they’re GAY and accept it.
This guy wants to be known as a GAY football player—well, kicker, NOT really a player— instead of a football player who HAPPENS to be gay.
That’s a sure way to get in the HOF, if he is a bad kicker(I was gonna say ‘if he sucks...” but he’s GAY and that’s what they do.
Also what happens if he misses 10-15 in a row and they bench him, will they be called homophobs?
I always thought the first openly gay athlete would be a soccer player - same difference I guess.
Perversion as big business.
Our world is going down the drain.........
I wonder if he will be wearing high heels when he kicks.
"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"--Mark 8:36
The NFL says Tebow can’t put Bible versus on his face black but they want to make a queer a star and trot him around like a prize hog at the State Fair.
Another reason to ignore the NFL.
Before any business makes use of a gay spokesperson again, I would think it would be wise to consider how well that worked out for J.C. Penny with Ellen DeGeneres.
Actually, this kind of thing will not be a plus. It most likely will cause people to decide football is officially over.
Which is what they want.
There's that Democrat math again. There's no way freaks have disposable income like that. Maybe by buying power they mean they have the power to leverage up $790 billion in taxpayer financed mortgages and lesbian studies college loans to default on.
Can the buying power of those opposed to homosexuality be estimated?
Did any team draft him?
I hope some normal non-gay guy comes out as gay and scoops up the millions in endorsements. Then a few years down the road he marries his girlfriend in church and gives all the libs conniption fits
Ellen Degeneres was a lot funnier when she was a professional comedian who happened to also be a lesbian. She became a lot less funny when she turned into a professional lesbian who happened to be a comedian.
I would think that most teams would shy away from him based on the simple fact that he would be a huge distraction.
All anyone should care about is- can he kick the freakin’ ball?
Bigger score than Wilt Chamberlain?
And those same companies may find themselves boycotted by the traditional values crowd from coast to coast who don't like seeing the lavender mafia mock traditional families and funneling corporate dollars to politically active liberal agenda organizations.
That's a lot of money from 2% of 300million (6 million pepople spending 790billion dollars = $131,666.666 per person spent annually). Smells like lavender mafia Bullstalin to me. What is the market share of the heterosexual public and why don't the liberal socialists in corporate America care about their TRILLIONS of spending dollars?
