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

    uh oh 49ers could be jynxing themselves!
    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.

    Glad he voiced his opinion instead of sucking up to the media.

    I wouldn't have a problem with it, but I wouldn't want to share a locker room and shower with the gay player. That is like me going to the gym and taking a shower and getting dressed in the Womans locker room.

    I lost respect for Culliver. If he doesn't agree with their sexuality, fine that's his opinion, but the way he went about it sounds arrogant. He could've worded it differently. Just because a gay guy is in the locker room doesn't mean he's going to be checking you out. I hate that thought by people. They can control themselves.

    I respect him for speaking his mind instead of saying what this country wants to hear, I'd never wanna play with a gay person nor share a locker room with him

    So, if you were in a locker room of naked/undressing women, you wouldn't check them out? Riiiiight.

    A gay guy in a NFL locker room with 60 other naked guys would like heaven for the player.

    It's this type of thinking that spawns homophobia. Culliver is clearly uneducated, poorly spoken, and a complete tool.

    If I spent as much time together as these players do, I would hope I would not because how close I'd get to them and how it becomes a "family", as they say.

    How so? Just because I wouldn't want to shower with a gay person?
