Dame Kelly Holmes, Colin Jackson - both former, very accomplished gold medallists - why won''t they come out? Do we suspect anyone else?%0D\
And are we enjoying the Delhi Commonwealth Games?
Looking forward to 2012
What about the runner who owns a modeling agency\
with his brother?.\
I wish swimmer Liam Tancock was.
My sister in law served with Holmes in the army and says she''s asexual not gay. So totally focused on sport threre isn''t room for anything else.
Someone''s enjoying the Dehli games based on the condoms that are backing up the sewers...
R2, do you honestly believe that bullcrap?%0D\
I mean, honestly. %0D\
I have no clue whether she''s gay or not but seriously...
Your sis in law is a dork
My sister in law is gay too. She''s married to my older sister so I think she at least has some insight.
Wasn''t tennis star Virginia Wade ?%0D\
there has to be lots more ...
Holmes was seen at Lounge by friends of mine, dancing with a woman and kissing her. Was widely gossiped about at the time.
Was it true that Colin Jackson had something going on with the swimmer Mark Foster?
Not that surprised to learn that Kelly Holmes. I''ve met her a few times and always got some kind of weird feeling. To bad Kelly Sotherton is straight; that, my dear dataloungers, would be amazing.
I am British, straight though but Colin is 100% gay
Has Colin Jackson ever been seen with a woman, just one time? Come on Colin! Everybody knows. Time to stand up and be a role model for young athletes. Right body, right mind.
Tom Daley, please! Would love to pound his hole.
[quote]Colin Jackson \
Jackson is an arrogant git, no one would want him as a role model.
"My sister in law is gay too. She''s married to my older sister so I think she at least has some insight."%0D\
Well she needs a little more. Clearly Holmes is not ''asexual''. %0D\
Colin Jackson did a BIZARRE interview where he strenuously denied being gay. This was around the time of him doing Dancing on Ice or whatever. It was so leftfield and aggressive it just got people on the internet gossiping he was a closet case.
Colin Jackson can''t be gay. He is/was close friends with pussy hound Linford Christie.
Yes R6 Wade was outed in the 90s
looking forward to 2012
Does Britain really have what you could call athletes?
I wouldn''t mind getting to know a few of their rowers, they are always the hottest of the British athletes. Oh, and Chris "thighs of death" Hoy.%0D\
Here we go again, r17. As soon as anything British is mentioned on DL, up pops a negative comment.%0D\
Are you of German, French or Argentinian extraction by any chance? Or maybe Middle Eastern?%0D\
Certainly want Colin Jackson as a hole model.
That''s even dumber than the usual "too busy to date" line:%0D\
Asked to explain "why he hasn''t been seen with any women recently he said: "Because I don''t particularly want to be with any woman. It''s as simple as that.'' "
[quote]Does Britain really have what you could call athletes?\
Seriously? Is this the best you could come up with R17? Your Brit baiting skills are shite.
A quick bump for gay british athletes.
Tom Daley cleaned up with the golds. This boy really, really pings, but not half as much as Canada''s Kevin Geyson - flaming Queen methinks
Is Mark Foster gay?
Mark Foster is pretty certainly gay. Apart from not a wiff of heteo interest across nearly 2 decades of being a pro swimmer, there's the long-term association with Colin Jackson. After he appeared on Strictly Come Dancing (the UK original of Dancing with the Stars), he was papped on holiday to the gay Mecca of Gran Canaria with the two Strictly gay pros, Ian Waite and Matthew Cutler.
There was a funny exchange this morning on the BBC Olympic swimming coverage, where Foster and Ian Thorpe are the main pundits. Thorpe joked about Foster's swimming, and Foster mock-complained back 'He's wearing my T-shirt - Clare (out Lesbo Clare Balding, who anchors the swimming coverage), take my shirt off him!'. Why is clothes designer and fashion-plate Ian Thorpe wearing Mark Foster's clothes?
I don't know if it's the 'classic' Anti-Brit Troll, but if it is, they're American, and obsessed with Britain (and the rest of Europe) being overrun with "Muzzies" who are moments away from inflicting Sharia law on the entire world, minus brave freedom-loving America, of course.
I actually don't think it is, since that troll was far more delusional and given to racist outbursts than what's been posted recently. Unless they upped their meds.
posted 28 > thanks for the reply, is there any proof of all this? links etc
and i hope he is gay, love him to bits even if he is old enough to be my dad.
wish i had his number. :(
If you are talking about people in the closet, look no further than Sir Steve Redgrave, I know from personal experience that he is more like Lady Redgrave!!
You are so funny R 31
My friend saw Colin Jackson and Mark Foster together in Brighton a few days ago.
I served with Kelly in York and I can confirm that she is indeed gay, though I have no idea why this should matter?
She was a fine soldier, good friend and amazing athlete.
We're just talking Summer athletes on this thread, right?
Because they are NOT Dame Honey Boo Boo!
R34 it matters because this is a gay gossip board.
A friend of a friend of mine who knows stuff has confirmed that Jackson and Foster are an item (well, they were at the time of the recent Olympics, when he told her this).
Seems strange to a lot of people that Colin isn't out and said that he wasn't gay since it seems obvious.
The UK is increasingly gay friendly and he does commenting for the BBC which would have no problem with it.
Trust me, Colin Jackson is gay.
He told me, he also told me how Rafael Nadal is a fan of his
And they are good friends!
Colin Jackson was the hottest when he was active in sports. Hot also now.
I wish Daley Thompson was gay. Pity that he's such a raging homophobe.
I wish the former javelin thrower Steve Backley were gay. I used to have the hots for him back in the day.
My favorite Brit was always Linford Christie, the sprinter with the amazing physique.
I know R19 asked 4 years ago, but yes Sue Barker is married to a policeman and has been for about 25 years. They're still together. Here's an old newspaper article about her wedding which mentions Sue also used to date the golfer Greg Norman long before he married Chris Evert. Wonder if Sue and Chris ever discuss that at Wimbledon!
Sue famously dated Cliff Richard too. Cliff's fans always drag up Sue's name to prove his heterosexuality, even though it was over 30 years ago.
"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...
