UPDATE: I just found out that the 49ers suspended a player just last month for comments criticizing the team and the coach. So it’s not just possible for them to suspend Culliver, they have suspended players for their big mouths. And they went public with the disciplinarian action. So why are the 49ers refusing today to say what disciplinary action if any they took against Culliver? Is it because anti-gay bigotry isn’t as big a deal to the 49ers as being mean to a coach?
UPDATE: The San Francisco 49ers have just issued some bs statement about Chris Cullier’s bigotry – and the statement says pretty much nothing at all:
“The San Francisco 49ers reject the comments that were made yesterday, and have addressed the matter with Chris. There is no place for discrimination within our organization at any level. We have and always will proudly support the LGBT community.”
You “reject” them? That’s nice of you. And you “addressed” it. How? What kind of bs non-answer is this from the San Francisco 49ers? Their player made incredibly bigoted statements at an official NFL Super Bowl event. And the 49ers respond with “we’ve addressed it.” I don’t think so. What do the 49ers plan to do to address the incredibly bigotry that one of their players showed during an official NFL Super Bowl event? This wasn’t even an apology.
Chris Culliver, a San Francisco 49ers football player who will be playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday, used a Super Bowl media event to reportedly tell all gays to get out of the NFL.
Here’s the audio. And unless the audio is a fake – and it comes from Yahoo Sports, so I doubt it – this isn’t “reportedly” any more:
Mind you, this anti-gay bigot plays for SAN FRANCISCO. Where, as you may have heard, a few gay people live.
If this ass gets to play football on Sunday, then there needs to be an all out war on the NFL. There’s a reason that there are no openly-gay football players in the NFL, and we’ll know what that reason is if the NFL doesn’t can this bigot.
And, he did it at the Super Bowl’s own media day. In other words, he did this as a player in the Super Bowl, not as a private citizen (as if that matters when you say that anybody gay needs to quite the NFL now).
“I don’t do the gay guys man,” said Culliver, whose Niners play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. “I don’t do that. No, we don’t got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.
“Can’t be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can’t be…in the locker room man. Nah.”
When quizzed by Lange whether any homosexual athletes would need to keep their sexuality a secret in football, Culliver responded: “Yeah, come out 10 years later after that.”
The NFL had better kicked Culliver’s fat bigoted ass out of the game. Is there any doubt that Chris Culliver – or any player – wouldn’t be playing on Sunday had he suggested that all blacks need to quit the NFL, or all Jews? (
Feel free to tell Culliver what you think about his incredibly hateful, bigoted comments via Twitter: @cullyinthehouse
And feel free to let the NFL know how you feel about Culver using an official NFL media event to tell the world that gays had better get out of the NFL: @nfl
If you’re looking for anyone else to express your concerns too, Mr. Culliver provides the info in his Twitter account for his agent:
In another recent tweet, he seems to make some crack about women’s periods:
