Glad the Gay-Bashers Lost the Super Bowl

Before last week, I was little enthused about the Super Bowl. San Fran and Baltimore do not belong on the radar of pro teams I semi-follow. I’m a college football gal, anyhow.

If I had to choose a team, my initial pick would have been the 49ers because I love that coach-for-a-day commercial they did and I’ve always been a fan of Crabtree from his days at Texas Tech.

The gay bashing last week by 49er cornerback Chris Culliver, however, was so beyond the bounds of human decency – as well as the follow-up anti-gay sentiments of fellow players Ahmad Brooks and Isaac Sopoaga. Their words were contemptible.

I would have at least respected the organization had they suspended the players – yes, for the Super Bowl. Their comments deserved no lesser punishment. In fact, had those players issued such opinion about any other minority group, they would have been benched. For the 49er management to allow those men to take the field after such outrageous, outward bigotry, leaves little to respect. Shame on the whole lot of them.

If some big, bad football players lack the maturity and professionalism that should accompany the uniform, they shouldn’t be on the field. It’s time for progress to force its way into pro sports. These adults need to grow up and open their minds. And I will be boycotting their games until amends are made.

Sidenote: I didn’t support Baltimore either, really – Ray Lewis being a probable murder-participant was also a huge turnoff. I wish both teams had lost. And that Louisiana invests more in its infrastructure.
