LSU Running Back Blue On Gay Players: “We Look At You As A Sissy”

gfx - they said itThe idea of an openly-gay athlete has received a lot of attention in recent months.  San Francisco 49ers’ cornerback Chris Culliver  made headlines just before the Super Bowl when he said he wouldn’t want a gay teammate.  You can add LSU running back Alfred Blue to the list of athletes whose comments will undoubtedly draw attention, after this quote to Mike Gegenheimer of the Daily Reveille

 

“Football is supposed to be this violent sport — this aggressive sport that grown men are supposed to play. Ain’t no little boys out here between them lines. So if you gay, we look at you as a sissy. You know? Like, how you going to say you can do what we do and you want a man?”

 

Not everyone on the LSU team shares that perspective.  Offensive lineman Trai Turner had a different vew.

 

“College football is a business and you have to conduct yourself in a manner where you respect everyone you deal with. I feel like if the person is gay, he must still conduct himself in the manner of a football player, and if a person isn’t gay, he must still look at the person who views himself as gay, or says he is gay, as his teammate.”

 

Added sophomore quarterback Stephen Rivers.  “If he can play for LSU, he will play for LSU,”

Earlier this week, UCLA coach Jim Mora became the first major college football coach to encourage gay athletes to play for his team. ”I don’t judge people on their color of their skin, their sexual orientation, their religious beliefs. It doesn’t matter to me,” Mora told Outsports.com

he's a sissy for caring so much.  if you can play, you can play and that's where it ends.

Alfred Blue is an idiot.  Remarks like that should get you booted off a team.
