He's a Tight End, so I guess that means he's a top.
It's not just one guy. There are three who said they had the same experience.
that's terrible! they all need to go now and take a shower together.
Good for him. He looks like an overgrown leprechaun.
He's HUGE, muscular, cute, handsome, has pretty eyes, CSLs, groomed brows, dyes his styled hair a reddish blond, and is into fashion. Could just be metrosexual, but I hope he's gay and gets hired by a Bay Area, NY, or LA team and eventually becomes the first openly gay NFL player!
This thread is useless without pictures of his penile schlong.
He's known as being shy. He's interviewed at 4:10 in the video. Doesn't ping to me, doesn't have gayvoice.
Other than his great looks, don't know why his sexuality would be questions unless there are rumors started by people who know him.
Given his shyness and "Paul Bunyan" size, plus the fact that he's so young, not having dated yet would be no surprise.
Six foot-seven, 245 pounds! Daddy!
Still, isn't it illegal to ask people one is considering hiring whether or not they are gay?
"Still, isn't it illegal to ask people one is considering hiring whether or not they are gay?"
No, it's not R18. It may be illegal in some states, bit its definitely permitted in others. There's no Federal law including gays as a protected group.
Do they ask everyone the same question? Or just to some of them?
I read an article that claims that the question is asked to throw off the player in some way to see how and how quick he reacts to this kind of questions (to spot anger management issues?).
^that's right, other questions suggested to weed out the unmanageably angry include "Are your parents of the same race?" "Do you go to church? How do you feel about church? Do you like Jews?" and "If we asked you to attend a GOP fundraiser would you be able to?"
They don't directly ask "are you gay." That would put the team afoul of the NFL's own regulations.
[quote]"[Teams] ask you like, 'Do you have a girlfriend?' 'Are you married?' 'Do you like girls?' " Kasa said in his radio interview Tuesday. "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."
If they ask "Do you have a girlfriend?" the players should respond "Yes, her name's Lennay. She just miraculously recovered from her coma."
The NFL is more and more being exposed as the neanderthal-run conglomerate that it is.
I find it difficult to endure gay fans who suck up to this quagmire of homophobia and physical destruction.
Between the antigay attitudes (with a few bold exceptions), the drug abuse, the violent crimes, the hundreds of permanent head injuries and more awfulness, it's horrid.
Dont forget, the icing on the cake! The NFL is a non profit for IRS purposes!
USA Banana Republic
The NFL gay probe questions were talked about on an NPR sports round-up today. They didn't say which team was asking those questions.
"They didn't say which team was asking those questions"
Too bad. Those teams should be exposed.
r27, wow, I never knew that!
I had a libertarian CEO has sneered at anyone who questioned his fairness and whose wife had a company that did background checks. After the company failed I found HR files proving they hired people to find all kinds of illegal information on prospective candidates and the candidates' family relations were always a major consideration in anyone who was a vice-president or above.
[quote]The NFL is a non profit for IRS purposes!
Wait. Are you saying that the oversight organization, the NFL, is non-profit as opposed to the individual clubs with many different owners who have tax burdens? If it's the former, it's not such a big deal, unlike not taxing highly profitable teams.
If you're saying the NFL takes a cut from teams and isn't taxed, we need more information!!!
Could you distinguish and keep it straight (no pun!)?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
