When comparing the collective bargaining agreements between 2006 and 2011, a keen observer found this:
Section 1. No Discrimination: There will be no discrimination in any form against any player by the Management Council, any Club or by the NFLPA because of race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or activity or lack of activity on behalf of the NFLPA.
Which means it was added in recently that sexual orientation is protected!
How wonderful! We're so glad to see this addition, for sure!
Good job, football!
