    Thumbs down Chris Culliver comments

    Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo is using his spotlight before Super Bowl XLVII to promote same-sex marriage.

    San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver is taking the spotlight and making it clear he doesnít have any desire to share a locker room with a gay teammate.

    Culliver, in an interview with radio show host Artie Lange on Tuesday, said that gays would not be welcome in the locker room.

    ďI don't do the gay guys man," Culliver said, according to Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News. "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."

    Culliver, the third cornerback on defense and a core special teams contributor, went on to say that if a teammate was gay, he should keep it private for 10 years after he retires.

    The timing for Culliverís remarks would be poor at any moment. That he made the comments from the Super Bowl is especially damning. Earlier this week, former 49ers offensive lineman Kwame Harris, who also spent time with the Oakland Raiders, appeared in court on charges of domestic violence against a male partner.

    I don't see anything wrong with what he said.

    LOL!

    Lashes out?

    It was an interview with a comedian, which wasn't very serious. Yes, it was wrong but really taken out of context.

    Didn't lash out but was incredibly stupid nonetheless.

    Regardless of how he feels on the subject, as a professional athlete, when speaking with the media you always play it safe.

    Idiot move.

    Can we get the title changed though? Lame attempt to make something 1000x worse than it was.

    There's a much better way to say what he did. If he disagrees with homosexuality, fine that's his opinion, but he could've said it in a much more professional manner instead of that ignorant response. He needs to think before he speaks.

    He apologized:

    "The derogatory comments I made yesterday were a reflection of thoughts in my head, but they are not how I feel. It has taken me seeing them in print to realize that they are hurtful and ugly. Those discriminating feelings are truly not in my heart. Further, I apologize to those who I have hurt and offended, and I pledge to learn and grow from this experience.”

    Very idiotic on his part! People that make a big deal about homosexuals are just ignorant. If they aren't invading your booty or using a strap-on on you...what's the big fuss about?

    A good portion of the NFL likely feels the same way. There just smart enough not to publicly admit it unlike this moron.

    You can't be serious.

    Here we are, living in a world that is trying to make some serious progress from ostracizing (in particular) young gay and lesbian teens - who, among other issues, have the highest suicide rates of any of their peers, and are often put on track of 2nd class citizenship...

    And here the 49ers are, months removed from becoming the first NFL franchise to endorse It Gets Better -- speaking out against gay bullying...

    And you have no issue with Chris Culliver saying that these players should internalize for most of their lives (forget coming out as a teen...) and stay in the closet until 10 years after their career. So stay in the closet until, oh, age 45....

    My wife and I were talking about his comment... and we knew his apology was coming. However, he's still just a kid. Based on how he grew up, and face it how most of us were at his age... is it really a surprise? When I was young like him, I would have probably said pretty close to what he said. But life, and experience has changed me and it now seems silly to think that way.... but not when I was a in my early 20's and still a testosterone filled Marine - just like him being a testosterone filled football player.

    We usually don't agree, but this post is perfect. I feel no need to post my opinion because you did it so well already.

    I'm 22 and he's 24 and we have vastly different opinions on this subject. Age may play some part in his response because he still may be immature, but he's still an adult and should think before speaking.

    He is still an adult no arguing, but I'm guessing by your location you grew up in the Bay area, were of course it's MUCH more acceptable than it is in many other places in the world (like Philly where he's from) so you and others need to take that into account. It's just a fact, he made a really stupid comment, and I 100% agree he shouldn't have made it. I'm not forgiving him for it, he made it and he should take the blame for it. However, I at least based on my personal experience think he'll grow out of it, and boy did he just learn a lesson! One your darn sure we won't forget, because as well as the negative media attention you can bet your Harb's had a conversation with him about it.
