L.A. Galaxy forward Landon Donovan doesn't just think HIS team is ready for openly gay players, but all of Major League Soccer!
He even pointed to Robbie Rogers, who came out of the closet in February just before stepping away from professional sports. It's a shame he hadn't come out earlier, but we're glad he did REGARDLESS!
Landon said this:
"As soccer players, we are exposed to people of all colors, cultures, ethnicities, backgrounds, everything — and this is sort of the next step in that line."
We can't wait to see if more players are ready to take that step! We hope they are, because now is the time to do it!
Oh, and did we mention that Rogers might be returning to the sport? The Galaxy want him! That'd be HUGE!!
