Pro Football: Now officially more backward than even the Boy Scouts

Chris Culliver is the NFL's new John Rocker:
“Chris is very apologetic for any harm caused to anyone,” [Culliver publicist Theodore} Palmer told The Associated Press in a phone interview. “His intent was not that at all. He is one who celebrates the differences of others. All of this was just a big mistake. It was interpreted wrong.”
Right.  It’s our fault now.

Let me remind folks of Culliver’s words earlier that we misinterpreted, and/or that Culliver didn’t realize sounded hurtful and ugly:
“I don’t do the gay guys man,” said Culliver, whose Niners play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. “I don’t do that. No, we don’t got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.
“Can’t be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can’t be…in the locker room man. Nah.”
When quizzed by Lange whether any homosexual athletes would need to keep their sexuality a secret in football, Culliver responded: “Yeah, come out 10 years later after that.”
Nobody misinterpreted anything.
