An NFL Player Believes That Someone Coming Out While In the League Is a Selfish MoveJoe Nicholson/USA TODAY Sports

The issue of homosexuality in sports is similar to walking on eggshells. You want to move forward, but you also don't want to take the wrong next step. A couple days ago, the Seahawks' Chris Clemons went on Twitter to openly discuss his feelings towards the rumored gay NFL player who was considering coming out soon. Check out what he had to say below and the ensuing comments with his followers: 

We don't want to jump to any conclusions about Clemons' comments, but we should note that any athlete coming out, especially in the NFL, would be big news. To imply that that person's confession would be a selfish act sounds a little much to us. Anyway, why don't we just give him a pass... 

 

Some things should be left at home, huh? Hmm. What does that tell you?
