THIS is the kind of stuff we love to see out of professional sports!!

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick & Panthers quarterback Cam Newton are not about to leet homophobia ruin the sport — and we are in LOVE with what they had to say on ESPN’s Sunday Conversation!

First, they both said 'absolutely' when asked if they'd be okay and accept Michael Sam in their locker rooms!

Here's what Cam said, expanind:

"His job is a linebacker. Colin said it best when he said we don’t worry about each other when we’re outside of football. Of course we have, ‘Are you OK? Is there anything I can help you with?’ But the main focus is, we’re football players. We’re here in this organization for one reason and one reason only. And if you’re able to help us attain that winning success, your personal life is your personal life."

To which Kaepernick added:

"No one cares if you’re black, white, straight gay, Christian, Jewish, whatever it may be. When you step on that field you’re a member of, in my case the 49ers, or the Carolina Panthers, that’s your job. That’s your occupation."

Luckily, we get the feeling that the majority of the NFL feels this way too — with the exception of those still living in the past. According to a poll, 86% of NFL players would accept a gay teammate! ESPN asked!

It would be awesome if kicker Chris Kluwe could find his way back into the sport with this major shift in acceptance! Chris isn't gay, but he was VERY vocal about his support… and someone on his team didn't like it!

We really wish Michael the best of luck!!

    Athletic and smart! Nice to know that athletes like these two exist. There must be a rule in all sports that anyone who expresses or exhibits homophobia should either be suspended or banned from competing ever.

    @GayAgenda, you want someone banned for expressing an opinion? When will people learn: we must support EVERYONE'S freedoms, including free speech, including tolerating other people's backwards opinions, if we want to preserve our own freedoms. You cannot narrow the acceptable ideas, thoughts, and statements in a free society, without risking that your own ideas will also be one day banned.
