    I wouldn't support him, I don't support perverts.

    Which is the reason why this guy did this. Once upon a time he was a serviceable center early in his career but for the most part he's a 3 points per game bench warmer who only played in 6 games for one of the worst teams in the NBA. What's going to happen is that no one is going to pick this guy up and automatically the cries of homophobia are going to rise. This is why this guy is doing this because otherwise, no one would want him but now someone is going to be forced to sign him taking a spot away from someone who is probably better.

    That is because being opening gay is more in line with Obama's point of view.

    I liken this to Chipper Jones, 3rd baseman for the Braves. He was screwing around on his wife with a local Hooters girl in Atlanta. I also believe adultery is just as wrong as homosexuality. Nonetheless, I still rooted for Chipper year after year because he was a part of the Atlanta Braves.

    Long story short, "Just shut up and do your damn job." You just want to be treated like everyone else, then don't issue press releases divulging your private business.

    Lot's of people didn't approve of interracial couples, but Charles Barkley didn't issue a statement saying he liked white women. He just married one. The public will figure it out.

    Fair enough! Thanks for the response.

    And an opposing viewpoint. Thanks for the response.

    Okay, so three responses - one who said he would still support a sports hero even if he didn't approve of his private life, one who said he would not, and one who referenced my question but did not answer it.
