Co-signed. I work at an all-sports network and no one gives a rats ass about gay. From a hockey perspective all they want to know is if you can put the puck in the net, drop the gloves and kick someone's ass or stop the puck. Of course, I'm in Canada so maybe we are a tad more liberal on the subject, but all you have to do is look at Brian Burke's work in "You Can Play" to see the efforts being made to make this a non-topic in hockey rinks/locker rooms.
