Gay player could score big
Boston Herald ^ | April 28, 2013 | Marie Szaniszlo

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 he’s successful, that could translate into millions of dollars in endorsements and speaking engagements, experts say.

Whether it’s the Sun Belt Conference’s 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.

He gets rewarded because of his sexual behavior?

Yes, rewarded for sexually and morally perverse acts, including butt-sex. Don't think he'll make it though — rumor is he kicks like a girl.

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.

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.

Heh, I predicted that the "gay NFL player" would be a kicker or punter that nobody had heard of.

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.

"Figures Don't Lie, But Liars Do Figure" . . .

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.

I am so utterly sick of these freakin faggots!

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.

Goodness. The media is obsessed with men screwing one another in the ass. Oh yea I know Gay life isn't just about sex, right? Well without the sex part wouldn't it just be two male friends?! It's all about the sex and the media is obsessed with it. “HEY EVERYONE LOOK AT THIS WONDERFUL MEN WHO LOVE ANAL. AREN'T THEY SPECIAL PEOPLE WHO WE ALL SHOULD LOVE”
Wow. Just wow.

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.

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?

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.

the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender population, whose annual buying power last year was estimated at $790 billion

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.

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.

No. Central Florida's Alan Gendreau would love to be in the middle of all the commotion. It's a long shot. Big time. He is an undrafted kicker — about as low as you can go in the NFL pecking order — who last played for Middle Tennessee State in the 2012 season. He is currently working for a real-estate company in Washington, D.C.

I would think that most teams would shy away from him based on the simple fact that he would be a huge distraction.

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?
