scottydoesntknow: Culliver's Crapology:

"The derogatory comments I made yesterday were a reflection of thoughts in my head, but they are not how I feel. it has taken me seeing them in print to realize that they are hurtful and ugly. Those discriminating feelings are truly not in my heart. Further, I apologize to those who I have hurt and offended, and I pledge to learn and grow from this experience."

For a guy who can barely write/speak at an elementary level, that's quite an eloquent apology


there is one thing i am 100% sure of and that is that Culliver didn't write that.  I figured that out when i reached the word 'derogatory'.

"No, we don't got no gay people on the team"

Hmm.

Did Culliver think the interview with Artie Lange wasn't being taped or that Lange wouldn't release it publicly for some reason?  He had to have expected that.
 
2013-01-31 11:55:18 AM  
You'd think someone who played at South Carolina would be more comfortable with cocks.
 
2013-01-31 11:55:47 AM  
Yeah, you knew the apology was coming - that is the WRONG town to be vocal with those feelings.  The 49ers organization was the first to join the anti-bullying "It Gets Better" campaign.
 
2013-01-31 11:57:04 AM  
Oh, and Artie Lange is a douchebag, too.
 
2013-01-31 11:57:43 AM  

thecpt: sigdiamond2000: I don't understand what you mean. Are you saying I said "everyone is homophobic?" Because I actually went out of my way to not say that because I don't believe all players and management are.

I assumed by saying the organization feels that sentiment, that you meant the players too. If that's not it, then your post is confusing.


My point is that I'm fairly certain the majority of players and management agree with his sentiment and an atmosphere of homophobia is openly fostered within the male locker room environment.

This isn't really a controversial statement. Any man who has spent any time playing amateur or professional sports would probably agree with this. I know that it was certainly my experience. And I'm not so old now that I believe the culture of the locker room has changed that much since my time in it. I don't know. I guess I could be wrong, but I'd be surprised.

There are definitely problems with it, and reasons to keep it secret.  Players who are Allies have said that if someone came out, they would probably be targeted in practice.  I just dont think its fair to say that everyone is that way or that an organization would be that way.

As far as I got Athletics wise it wasn't a problem.  Then again a D1 college in the North East is by no means general opinion either.

A lot of professional athletes can't conceive of the idea that there can be any repercussions to things they do because they've been told from a very young age that they're better than everyone else and don't need to play by the same set of rules.

Orgasmatron138: Oh, and Artie Lange is a douchebag, too.


This. Artie Lange baited him into this. He took advantage of a young black male and the machismo that comes with that culture. He knew what he was doing.

Not defending Culliver. He will learn from this, which is a good thing.

Artie probably immediately went off air and made 3-4 gay jokes. Because that's the type of POS he is.

He asked Culliver if a gay player would be welcome in their locker room. What part of that is baiting him into revealing he's a queer-hating douchebag?

Anyone who looks at football and immediately thinks about gay sex has a lot to learn about themselves.

Yeah, it's also bullshiat.

Oh of course it is. When this story first broke I went and read some of his twitter account. It was terrible.

He should have gone with the "sorry people were offended" angle, which is a total crock of shiat but is at least more genuine than that apology.


Then again, that was so incoherent, I expected "I'm sorry the gay people were buthurt over my hatful and ingorant remarks".

Stories like this are so stupid.  Ask any joe schmoe across the country about the "gays" and you will get a similar type answer.  Ask a football player and OMG THE NFL IS SO INTOLERANT AHAHAERARARARAGGHGHGHGHGHGHGH.  There are 53 players on every team, most of them (like Culliver) are not used to being interviewed all of the time.  The Super Bowl media days are crazy, you take players who normally have no podium and you give them access to worldwide press all day long.  Eventually many of them are going to say stupid shiat.  Who cares.  He apologized and learned his lesson, what is he, 25?  Man I still say stupid shiat and I am a 30something.  Move on.

You'd think that in a concern worth $8 billion, a sub-concern worth hundreds of millions, a roster of coaches and teammates - SOMEONE would sit these chuckleheads down the day after the draft for a seminar called: "How Not to Make Your League, Your Team and Yourself Look Like a Staggering Jackass".

They can pay me $30k ($1k for each team) to do it, and I promise not to take up too much of their golf/club time.

I live in the Bay Area.  I've voted for the Gay Marriage initiatives.  My sister-in-law lives in the Castro with 4 gay people lol.  I wasn't talking about my opinion.  I'm talking about your average jock type.  Ask a tough guy about gay people in a locker room and you will get that same type of answer.  This isn't a revelation, it is just common sense.  Your average dude may intellectualize the need for gay people to have the right to marry, but they don't necessarily want a bunch of gay dudes around.

Culliver wasn't asked a direct question about showering with a gay guy or even having to share the same bed in some weird "our hotel is overbooked for the road game in Atlanta" situation. He flat out said they're not welcome on the team. Period.

I don't know a single person who supports gay rights who has a problem simply being around gay people, and I actually know people who DON'T support equal marriage rights but don't object working with them or hanging out with them at all. What he said, while stereotypical in a "dumb machismo jock" kind of way I don't think nearly represents the whole as you make it out to be.

Well you and I live in a bubble.  San Francisco and Seattle do not represent the normal.  They represent typical coast leftism.  Anyways that really isn't the point.  The point is this whole story is overblown.  People have opinions, some of them are ignorant, this is not news.

I hate to break it to Culliver, but it's probably pretty close to an absolute certainty that he either has a gay teammate now, or has had one at some point in his career.

Really? didn't he just say that if there were any gays they should get off the team, and they need to wait 10 years after they retire to come out? Yeah, he seems like a sensible guy.

alwaysjaded: Do any of those voices also say "Avert your eyes or you'll be tempted by the devil." or at the bottom of the pile "think unsexy thoughts...think unsexy thoughts...think unsexy thoughts..."


Eh, back before I blew out my knee I used to do jujitsu and frequently would work with / compete against some rather attractive women.  As soon as you get started, you're way more concerned about not having your arm broken or getting choked out than you are about rubbing up against her.  I'd imagine it's the same for gay guys fighting for the ball under the pile.

Well, although he didn't say it, as I don't think the question was that specific, but he probably meant 'openly gay people' should get off the team.  Surely can't think that he's never played with anyone who's gay?  That would be a bit delusional at worst, extremely ignorant at best.
