Manti Te'o Fallout: NFL Is Now Asking New Recruits If They're Gay!

manti teo nick kasa nfl gay grilling question awful sexual orientation girls

This is some SERIOUS bullshizz!

Just when we thought all the Manti Te'o craziness was over, we're now hearing that because of the whole mess that NFL teams are now straight up asking recruits whether or not they like girls… like it f***ing matters!

Nick Kasa, the tight end for Colorado University, is being evaluated by NFL teams and scouts. He says they've been grilling him about his sexuality, like it has something to do with how well he can play football! Here's what he said:

“[They would] ask you like, ‘Do you have a girlfriend?’ Are you married?’ Do you like girls?’ Those kinds of things, and you know it was just kind of weird. But they would ask you with a straight face, and it’s a pretty weird experience altogether.”

Sounds like it!

And we're SUPER glad you aren't keeping it to yourself!

Here's what an NBC sports analyst said this week even before Nick spoke up:

“Here’s the elephant in the room for the teams and it shouldn’t matter, but we have to step aside from the rest of reality and walk into the unique industry that is the NFL. Teams want to know whether Manti Te’o is gay. They just want to know. They want to know because in an NFL locker room, it’s a different world. It shouldn’t be that way.”


All of this homophobia need to end RIGHT. NOW.

Being gay has no bearing on your ability to play the sport, be a friend, and be an amazing teammate. It's time to move on!

    Our Men & Women in uniform serve with open GSD (Gender & Sexual Diversity) on the battlefield in a war zone and on our Naval vessels with no problems reported ..
    Yet these bug tough supposedly educated professional athletes cant get over the Locker Room issue.. Again it proves how the majority of them are nothing more than grown up pubescent children ..

    I think it's a valid question that has a place in the interview room. NFL teams aren't your normal employer; the rules are different. If a team is going to invest millions of dollars in a prospective athlete, they need to know if he's gay or not. If he is, it could potentially become a distraction down the line because of the media frenzy that would surround the team if said player was to come out. That type of stuff takes away from focus on football in the locker room.

    That said, while your liberal celebrity website may be cool with homosexuality, the sentiment in the NFL isn't the same. There is an underlying Christian undertone in the league and if a player was to be gay, I'd be hard-pressed to say that everyone in that locker room is going to support him. NFL teams aren't going to take a chance on a player (when there may be a prospect of similar ability with a less controversial sexual orientation) who could alienate himself down the road.

    It's a valid question to be asked and I think you, the writer, need to ask yourself whether or not you're tredding into the right waters here. Unless you've covered the NFL from a non-tabloid point of view, you can't really speak coherently on the matter.

    I'm sorry but it had to be said.
