Is The NFL Ready For A Gay Athlete? The Opening Drive Talks To Mike Freeman
Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com joined the Opening Drive to discuss the article he wrote that said an active NFL player could come out the closet in the next few months. He said that he’s received a lot of negative backlash from people against a player coming out and said he now is less confident that a player will come out of the closet now. He mentions how sad it is that we are where we are with this that a player wouldn’t feel comfortable to come out. He said he does think that if it was a big named player that it would probably make things easier as far as tolerance.
