As the interviews continue to surface during media day, so does the news. With San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver on the hot seat, he was asked a very intriguing question regarding the acceptance of gay players by Artie Lang, his response:
I don’t do the gay guys. I don’t do that. We don’t have any gay guys on the team. They gotta get up outta here if they do. Can’t be with that sweet stuff.
If a player on the 49ers current roster was indeed homosexual, Culliver suggested he keep it to himself.
Yeah, come out 10 years later after that.
I know Cully on a personal level, and I don’t think he would do anything to purposely offend a certain group. It’s unfortunate that he received backlash for his honesty, however many NFL players feel the same way, they just choose to dodge the question with the vanilla response, “no comment.”
Whether you’re for or against gay rights, this can’t be good for the 49ers heading into the Super Bowl.
