He's coming out so he doesn't have to act like he's straight.
The thing is that there have been lots of gay football players who've never come out. But. Those guys live in fear that they're going to be found out and that they'll be made into pariahs. The ones who have come out have been "outed".
This is a good first step to getting to the point where we don't need to know.
