DATELINE: Any Port in a Storm?
We aren’t sure of the motives, but a coach from the Atlanta Falcons asked a young player at the Combine if he liked men.
This has set off a firestorm. Yes, it’s raining men in Atlanta.
Considering how many women are battered by football players in the NFL, the smarter question would be: do you dislike women?
The problem is likely that the average football player, looking at a career worth millions of dollars, thinks he is God’s gift to women—and men.
Now if they are trying to find out who’s gay and who’s undecided, you might as well as the direct question: have you ever kissed a man? You have to like a man to kiss him. Just ask Tom Brady who kisses owner Robert Kraft all the time.
Back to our complex issue, is it a complex that causes you to like men?
We would much rather know if your young athletic Neanderthal likes press and media guys. Now that might elicit our relief.
In the old days, media and sports players were like bread and butter. Now they are more like bread and the tax collector.
We hope every player likes men. Otherwise, he will resist giving a high five, a low five, a rump bump, or other physical examples of affection between the bruh and his bro.
Women are not exactly the people a battering player respects. But, if their preference is for men, we know that the worst that can happen is that your star punches your equipment manager in the nose, like Blake Griffin who truly liked the man he slugged.
The Atlanta front office went ballistic on the question of whether a young man likes men. We think we deserve to know so we can place our attention where it is appreciated.
