DOH Report: Niners CB says openly gay players would not be welcomed on the team

Quote:
NEW ORLEANS – San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver has reportedly made inflammatory comments regarding homosexuality in football just a few days before Super Bowl XLVII.

Shock jock Artie Lange revealed he had interviewed Culliver at media day Tuesday and aired a segment on his show that night, where the player insisted that any gay players would not be welcome on the team.

"I don't do the gay guys man," said Culliver, whose Niners play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. "I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.

"Can't be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can't be…in the locker room man. Nah."

When quizzed by Lange whether any homosexual athletes would need to keep their sexuality a secret in football, Culliver responded: "Yeah, come out 10 years later after that."


In the NFL's long history, there has never been an openly gay active player. However, sexual orientation has increasingly come into the spotlight recently.

The Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax saga was believed by many to be a ruse designed to hide his homosexuality, a claim that was vehemently denied by the former Notre Dame defensive star.

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo has been an outspoken supporter of gay rights, using the profile of Super Bowl week to bring the issue further into the spotlight.

And Monday, a report surfaced that former NFL player Kwame Harris had been charged with assaulting a former boyfriend.

"You always think because of the odds and the numbers there are gay players in the NFL," former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jerome Bettis told Huffington Post Live. "They haven't obviously come out and told anyone about it not even behind the scenes.

"Obviously there will be people who disagree and people who don't have a problem with it, but that will be in life as well. I don't think it is going to affect someone's play.

"Because it is so testosterone driven, it'd be really difficult for a gay player to stand up and say, 'Hey, I'm gay and I'm an NFL player.' "

Culliver, 24, did little to improve his own reputation on Wednesday, sending out a Tweet about a woman's monthly cycle.

Culliver, a reserve defensive back for San Francisco, appeared in all 16 games, recording 48 tackles and two interceptions.

What in the flying fuck does this even mean?

How did we let this kid into, and subsequently out of, college?

Thankfully, I've taken some classes in mediocre reserve defensive back as a second language, so I can give some meaningful translation to what he actually meant

Quote:
"I don't do the gay guys man,"
What he was actually saying here is that "I'm irrelevant, I need to drum up some attention to myself, and hope there is some other homophobic owner/GM out there who might overpay me because of my beliefs"

Quote:
No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.
Now what this cryptic tongue means is, "I'm what, the 3rd or 4th Corner on this team? I have absolutely no say as to who plays for us, but because I'm a swaggering homophobe, I'm going to do what little is in my power to try to threaten potential players away. Why? Because I'm an asshole"

Quote:
"Can't be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can't be…in the locker room man. Nah."
Being perfectly honest, this is too advanced even for me. As a matter of fact, I don't even think he knows what he said. This doesn't mean anything in any language

BTW, this is hilarious, this is part of his statement after the fact:

Quote:
"That's not what I feel in my heart. I'm sorry if I offended anyone. They were very ugly comments. Hopefully I learn and grow from this experience and this situation."
Now which one sounds scripted? Seriously, GTFO

I wonder if he realizes that he plays in possibly the most gay location on the planet?

I think it's in reference to the gay slur "sugar pants"?

Regardless, this guy is an idiot.
