In 1974, the uprights were right on the goal line
But some of the players were running into them
And getting hurt
So screw the kicker
Yes, please screw the kicker.

Ideally, this headline would get 4 comments. 3 of them would be "who cares" and 1 would be "good."

While that's correct, I think we also have to agree that it's going to confirm a lot of stereotypes to have the first openly gay player be a kicker.

I don't know which comment to go with, so I'll just toss a few out there:

 - Holy crap; this is awesome and ground-breaking!
 - Of course he's gay; he's a kicker.
 - Of course he's gay; he's a football player.
 - Sun Belt Conference? Do they have teams?
 - This would be news if he were actually in the NFL, because they are more important than queer non-NFL players.
 - Not news; there are a lot of gay people.
 - I know at least two gay people, so it's OK that I make the following homosexual joke that uses tangentially-related football terms: wide receiver, tight end, ball, uprights, punter, handegg, etc.

/good thing I used the raw HTML button to make this an unordered list, just so fark could remove it.

ok, cool.
 
2013-04-23 04:00:29 PM
If there are gay football fans out there, would they be excited to be represented by a kicker, of all people?

//maybe if he goes out there and makes a great special teams tackle every now and then.

The who cares comments are stupid. If you can't see what a shiatstorm the guy, or guys, that come out are going to go through then you're an idiot.
 
2013-04-23 04:09:59 PM
Bet you he can't kick it straight through the uprights.

I think they will have tremendous public support.  And any idiots who give openly gay players sh*t will be pilloried in the press, rightly so.
 
2013-04-23 04:12:38 PM
Of course he's a kicker.

That's why I said "ideally". Ideally nobody would give him shiat and whether or not they were gay would be worth of a "who cares."

Nope, the only sport dem queers is into is fudge-packin.

Yes, you moron, there are a lot of gay football fans "out there."

Real stretch calling a kicker a football player.

As i said back whent here was a report that 4 players were panningon coming out at the same time  "here's hoping they are 4 big-time DBs or Linemen with reputations as hyper-macho warriors, 'cause if it's a kicker, all people will say is "well OF COURSE he's gay"
 
2013-04-23 04:32:42 PM
I got one question - can he kick better than the guy we have now? If so, bring him to camp and sign him if he out kicks the incumbent. If not, best of luck.
 
2013-04-23 04:33:46 PM
It may be the first time in NFL history that kicker chases down a returner from behind.
 
2013-04-23 04:33:53 PM
The NFL can't be the last bastion of homo-bashing forever. My team (Saints) just had three current and former players publicly say, paraphrased, "Who farkin' cares?"

Then there's Kluwe with his masterful internet diatribes.

Sometimes guys suck each other's dicks. Get used to it. The more you object, the gayer you likely are.

Pumpernickel bread: Real stretch calling a kicker a football player.


Of the top 50 scoring players of all time in the NFL, only two aren't kickers.
 
2013-04-23 04:40:21 PM
Being the caring person that I am... If he doesn't get drafted, I hereby volunteer my chest for him to rest his head on while I comfort him, stroke his hair and and say "There there." (Which will of course be in reference as to where I want his hands to be placed in order to properly caress me.)

IAmRight: I think we also have to agree that it's going to confirm a lot of stereotypes to have the first openly gay player be a kicker.


That kickers are not giant pussies like the rest of the team?  I.e., who is the little girl of the following:

(A) "I am a kicker, I weigh 25 lbs sopping wet, and I am gay; deal", or
(B) "I am a nose guard, I weigh more than some species of whales, but I wet myself whenever I think of telling people I am gay"
 
2013-04-23 04:42:20 PM
As probably the only Blue Raider in this threat, I couldn't be any more proud.

Magorn: 'cause if it's a kicker, all people will say is "well OF COURSE he's gay"


Sure, the idiots who cream themselves in laughter over childish stereotypes might immediately think that. I find their opinions on the matter as relevant as the dust bunnies under my bed.

Yeah, but George Blanda's 4 decades of rampant homosexuality out-gayed any and every player who could ever put up similar numbers.
 
2013-04-23 04:59:03 PM
ok, but does he suck or not?  i mean, i think that's all the nfl cares about.
 
2013-04-23 05:00:52 PM
Is he wiry, too?
 
2013-04-23 05:05:31 PM
Good for him, but they didn't have to write an entire biography about him.

I'm sure someone has already said this, but:

I'm disgusted! Who the fark does the guy think he is! He should keep his disgusting little habit to himself!

I mean, letting everyone know he's a kicker! You'll never be a REAL NFL player! NEVER!

Guess I'll tackle this one, as the gameday thread token gay...better a kicker than a wide receiver or a tight end.

The who cares comments are stupid. If you can't see what a shiatstorm the guy, or guys, that come out are going to go through then you're an idiot.


Aren't they used to going through a shiatstorm in the name of satisfaction?
 
2013-04-23 06:07:03 PM
This has to be the first time that the word "Christian" was in a Fark thread title and not one comment was made about it or Christianity in general or particular.
Kudos to Mr. Gendreau!
/knows it's early in the thread
 
2013-04-23 06:11:59 PM
Could we please have an NFL player out just to stop these farking threads?  Please?
 
2013-04-23 06:24:04 PM
Are we going to need to hear the sexual preferences of every player now?

Wasnt it bad enough outing Rex Ryan as a toe farker?

Recruiter: Now, are either of you homosexuals?

John Winger: [John and Russell look at each other] You mean, like, flaming, or...

Recruiter: Well, it's a standard question we have to ask.

Russell Ziskey: No, we're not homosexual, but we are *willing to learn*.

John Winger: Yeah, would they send us someplace special?

Recruiter: I guess that's "no" on both. Now if you could just give Uncle Sam your autograph...
 
2013-04-23 06:39:00 PM
Good for him.
 
2013-04-23 06:47:22 PM

A Fark Handle: ok, but does he suck or not?  i mean, i think that's all the nfl cares about.


Clearly he does not suck. But with 32 jobs (starting kickers) and a few backups, kickoff long field goal specialists there's probably only about 100 people on the planet who are seriously considered for a job as an NFL kicker in a given year. That is some fierce competition. Numerically speaking there's way better odds of getting a paycheck being a qb since virtually every team employs at least three at some point during the year.

If he's better than Nick Novak I hope the Chargers sign him. If not, like all aspiring NFL players, good luck to him.
