Rhodes then says flatly, "I am not gay."

I bileave him..
 
2013-04-11 07:21:59 PM  
Well..hope they had a good time.  I couldn't possibly give a shiat if he's gay.

Leave the guy (and his friend) alone.  If he's not going around spouting homophobic crap he deserves his privacy.
 
2013-04-11 09:02:04 PM  
he's missing a great opportunity.  one could make a shiat ton of cash being the first active nfl player to come out.  granted there's probably more money for a baseball or basketball player, since they don't wear helmets and rhodes is not a quarterback.

/though probably a few death threats too

Not gay, but WTF?  Who goes around picking up other grown men like that?

Probably not gay, but this looks like it could be the beginning of a very gay pictorial.

If that's all they got and he insists he isn't gay, then I'd give him the benefit of the doubt.  It's not like that Travolta picture of him kissing another dude on the mouth.

W.C.fields forever: Perhaps Bi..Perhaps..

/He should have said 'I won't dignify that with an answer'


He couldn't do that without hurting his "value" as a free agent.

That's a shame, really. They could have waited until he signed before publishing the photos. Then he might have come out without a fuss... but being unsigned means he's vulnerable and could lose a lot of money, or not have a choice of teams to sign up with.

He's gay or bi, but it didn't need to be exposed without his OK. The only players that probably deserve that would be Chris Culliver (for his remarks) or Manti T'eo (for his fake girlfriend nonsense).

Yup.  That dude's gonna me making cash out the ass.  I'm tired of the noise surrounding this.  Can we please have some gay football players, so we can get back to talking about RG3?

Also, those are some of the gayest pictures short of lemonparty.org.  Straight men don't touch each other like that.

/nttawwt
 
2013-04-11 10:47:40 PM  
That first picture was just full of tender longing. Seriously, I have really good friends I would go on vacation with, but I'd never be giving a grown man that kind of look. Any of those looks.

I get that football, being so tightly wound up with straight white conservative American fans, is going to be behind the times on accepting gay players. But man, if that dude is completely straight I'm banging Amanda Bynes.

One would think that all they would have to do is ask the people who put on the Superbowl halftime show; they would know better than anyone who the gay players are. I mean they forced us to watch freaking Madonna, the gay icon, for crying out loud.

3rd pic looks like any other friends who are like, this is cool look at the scenery.

2013-04-12 12:17:55 AM  

you are a puppet: Such a stupid accusation. He's not gay, he's on the "down low".


Down Low ain't gay!

NPR covered the whole "down low" situation a few years ago and concluded it was overblown.  The idea exists, but not nearly to the degree that people think it does.  The people who ran the study concluded it was partly because of a bias about HIV infection methods.  They were assuming men were lying about anal intercourse with other men but they were taking at face value the lies about intravenous drug use.

What everyone did agree on:  if you're a black male in the South having unprotected gay sex or using drugs that require a needle - that's a surefire way to get HIV.  So couple closeted drug users with closeted gay men and you have a fairly large problem on your hands.

I realize the folly of comparing the WNBA to the mighty NFL, but there are numerous WNBA players who've revealed that they are homosexual, and its never been considered newsworthy, much less controversial.

Is that just because most obsessive sports fans are guys and most guys are anti-gay, yet are totally down with some scissorin' action, as hypocritical as that makes them? Or is it just because no one cares about the WNBA?

I think it's because most sports fans don't consider the WNBA a sport league. It sounds very sarcastic, but it would be bigger news if one of the top bowlers came out.

Men don't care if lesbians come out. Simple as that. There have been several female gay tennis stars and no one cared.

You know, to say "I don't care that he's gay" is one thing, but to to ask who cares (or be the 19th person to ask who cares) shows a weird sort of willful ignorance to the fact that obviously millions of people are gonna care when an NFL player comes out or is outed.  Of course this is gonna be news, and a topic for conversation.  Don't act all shocked.

Also, that dude looks as queer as a football bat.

I knew right away he was gay as the Castro district from the "assistant" pics. That guy is waaaay to hot to be straight.

I'm certain there's a field of wrecked straight-girl dreams trailing behind that man. The pecs, just...damn. and so obviously not for the ladies

carnifex2005: Men don't care if lesbians come out. Simple as that. There have been several female gay tennis stars and no one cared.


Probably because it's a stereotype that female athletes are lesbians. Who exactly would a lesbian pro athlete shock by coming out? It's like a male figure skater coming out, it's almost expected.

2013-04-12 07:27:09 AM  
Put me in the list of people who doesn't give a fark, and if it is true I wish them well.  I also agree with A Fark Handle that if he is, he is missing out on a huge opportunity; and the first player to come out will definitely make some endorsement and book/movie money on the deal, even if totally unintentional.  Which in many ways is a very positive reflection of the American people and still gives me hope in other circles of our society.
 
2013-04-12 07:37:48 AM  
When you think about, sports fans only care about wins and production. As a Cowboys fan I got over my TO hate when he wasn't alligator arming catches (and more people hate him than gay people). Those awful Philly fans embraced a dog killer, and we all know Americans love dogs more than they dislike gay people. No one wants to be the first guy though, they'd get the 2013 version of the Jackie Robinson treatment. After that, people would get over it (I assume) quickly. Being the first guy (of any group) is difficult but it would make you an influential person and it end up being very positive overall.
