Default Re: Some believe atmosphere is safe for gay NFL player to come out

People analyze this without any consideration beyond "gay."

There are huge differences in circumstances. Player just stops trying to hide it and shows up at a team party/event with his partner. He makes no attempt to say anything in the press about it. If a teammate goes off and makes an issue of it he will look like a giant male chicken in the press. If a guy all the sudden comes in dressed as Ru Paul and wants a press conference then he is going to be ill received.

That is a practical observation.

For a philosophical one: would you really think less of AJ if he came out tomorrow and said he was gay? If so, I think that reflects more on you than him.
