WASHINGTON -- There has never been an openly gay player in the NFL, and Seattle Seahawks defensive end Chris Clemons thinks it might be best if it stays that way.
Dennis Velco's insight:
I think the opposite. It's selfish to not come out as a professional NFL player. Think how many eyes that could open. What about being an openly gay college player who gets drafted into the NFL... would Clemons expect that person all the sudden be pushed back into the closet. Clemons comments come from a place of fear... fear of what it would do to the team.. but if in fact they are a cohesive team it shouldn't be an issue. And the Team should rally around the out player and stick up for him as team mates. Sure.. the first few who come out will get lots of both positive and negative press... but after so many... it will become a non-issue. As as for the locker room. Boys... you've been in locker rooms with gay guys your whole life... you just were not aware.
