Man, I want to be offended by this than I actually am. The way Culliver phrased his argument is so stereotypically homophobic that I can barely stand it, but I can also sympathize with those who would be uncomfortable with a homosexual teammate sharing a locker room with them.
I am so, so, so, so sick and tired of guys backpedaling on what they say. "a reflection of the thoughts in my head, but it's not how I feel"?????? Could you possibly put together a bigger bull**** sentence...It just makes it worse.
If you don't like the gay thing, keep it to yourself. Don't go out mentioning it like no one will write it down, THEN say it's not really how you FEEL, you were just sayin....ugh it's so dumb

it tis what it is..veery tricky little topic that everyone has to walk on eggshells about
its like the analogy i first mentioned, men cant be in locker rooms with woman and vice versa not because they cant control themselves but because of obvious reasons i shouldnt even need to mention.
now times are changing for civil rights for gay men and women which is a very good thing but because of that there are some unintended consequences like the fact that now sexual uncomfortability (for lack of a better way of saying it) is now more than just between men and women.

Jim Haslett is a horrible coach.

I can't help but think that, from high school, through college, and now in the NFL, these guys have seen a whoooooooooooollllleee lotta naked men.
The awkwardness, as has been pointed out, has to come from a sense that every gay dude wants ever guys body. But these guys see each other in the shower every day. Cooley very, VERY bluntly talked about Jabar Gaffney's, um, er, uh..."sizeable member". You see things in a lockerroom.
It's just weird to think that if you spent time in a lockerroom with a guy all the time, all the sudden you'd get self-conscious because he was gay. Then it matters. Before, not so much. After it matters a lot.
At any rate, Culliver was a dumbass for saying it, and his walking back of the comments makes him seem even dumber.
I also find it ironic that this came from someone in the San Francisco 49ers lockerroom.

I don't think there's anything wrong with being uncomfortable about being naked around a gay man. It's not hate, it's the same reason most guys are uncomfortable with being naked around girls and vice versa. Culliver made dumb statements, I think had he just phrased it as that he would be uncomfortable with it then it would be more agreeable.
And again, these guys have spent their whole lives in lockerrooms, in showers, etc.,. It just seems weird that having your dangly bits out around other dudes is perfectly fine and just a part of football until a dude that you probably already know and don't have problems with says he's gay. Then you get self-conscious.
