View Full Version : We Should Boycott Any Team That Signs Jason Collins

Jason Collins was clearly on his way out of the NBA and into retirement because nobody in the league would want him. He's so bad now he can't even get minutes on the horrible Wizards. Now he makes his little announcement and you just know he's gonna get an NBA job for next year that he doesn't deserve because the LGBT community and Liberal America would freak out if he didn't get a job claiming some sort of anti-gay bias. My solution is to boycott whatever team inevitably signs him for stealing a job from a more deserving player. By boycott I mean don't go to any games of that team or watch them on TV. Let the gay guy play in front of empty arenas. Are we even totally sure he's gay or could this all be a plan to stay in the league a little longer?

wow, this is pretty rude actually.. hope a mod removes this thread. Why boycott if he gets a job, if he fits into a teams plan, then he deserves it. And boycotting just because he's a homosexual, no sir, just pure ignorance by you.

How about No, Bigot.

its people like this that players are afraid to come out. Couldn't care less about his timing or circumstances of it

I would have no problem with a gay NBA player. Jason Collins is no longer an NBA player skill wise.

i'm sure this is the same guy who's already been banned for making accounts to blast collins.

poor fella. his parents must have done a terrible job raising him. it must really such having so much hatred towards people who just want to love who they want to love that they resort to this.


he's hung around for a reason. if he's signed, it's because someone values his size, leadership and dedication. if he's not signed, it because he wasn't good enough. pretty simple.

Jumping to some conclusions there. Your last paragraph is totally wrong. He'll stick around, not because of his size, leadership or dedication.

Actually it's the opposite, if he doesn't get a job the NBA will get boycotted. They'll say nobody signed him because he's gay.

which parts of it?

the dupe?

the parents?

the "i feel sorry that you care so much"?

It's just simple logic. No one is going to sign him unless it's beneficial to them. This is a business. You don't hire someone unless you perceive that they will help you in some way.

True but the part you're missing is the op is saying the benefit is from the PR perspective. The team that signs him will no doubt be praised by the gay community, sports world, and the media in general for paving the way for teams to accept a openly gay player.

Don't care for this thread but... I think players should keep their personal lives personal, gay or not gay.

I don't need to know if an athlete is gay, I don't need to know if an athlete is straight. I watch them to be entertained, not aroused.

so he has to stay in the closet?

what does this post even mean? in today's world with social media what it is and the huge attention we pay to athletes, well, we know who everyone is dating.

athletes are public figures, even scrubs like jason collins. their lives are very much public. you can google anyone pretty much and find out who they're dating, who've they've dated, who they're married to etc.


unless you're getting at "sexual orientation shouldn't matter, and we shouldn't care"...well, i agree with that. except that's talking about some utopian world that doesn't exist.

This is very ignorant. Collins coming out was a plus for young children everywhere who want to play sports but are not of the "right path." What he did took courage and I commend him for that. So yeah, unlike you I really applaud Collins for having guts.

Its not ignorant at all. All I'm am saying is, I could care less if an athlete is gay or straight. Unless I know someone personally, I don't need to know what they do in their personal lives.

The word "Gay" is just a label, just like "black or "brown". I like to think of them as just people, without putting a label on them.

The world doesn't need to know he is gay, just the people close to him.

Not everyone is going to ever except gay people, but I like to think most of the world is evolving enough to except it and respect it.

Did you see him with the Celtics this year? He didn't play a whole lot. Doc said he was basically a "good locker room guy." With the Wizards he couldnt even get on the floor. I don't doubt he can go somewhere and be a players coach like Sam Cassel or Lue but his days as a productive basketball player have long been over.....

Don't think he has enough to offer a team next year, but wouldn't be surprised if a team signed him because it can bring publicity.
