Some pre-Super Bowl babble from the 49ers…
49ers Player Chris Culliver Makes Anti-Gay Comments Before Superbowl
The Super Bowl-bound San Francisco 49ers are doing some major damage control after one of their players made controversial comments when asked about his stance on gay players in the NFL during a media day interview in New Orleans on Tuesday.

There has never been an openly gay player in the NFL, and at least one member of the San Francisco 49ers would like to keep it that way.
49ers cornerback Chris Culliver made that clear on Tuesday, during an interview on Artie Lange’s radio show. When asked if a gay teammate would be welcomed in the NFC champions locker room, Culliver said:
“I don’t do the gay guys, man. I don’t do that.”
“We don’t got no gay people on the team,” Culliver continued. “They’ve got to get up outta here if they do. Can’t be with that sweet stuff.”
Culliver even went so far to say that if he does have a h*m*sexual teammate, that teammate would be smart to keep that fact to himself.
“Yeah, come out 10 years later,” Culliver said.
Culliver has (of course) since released a statement in conjunction with the 49ers apologizing for his comments. There’s always that one guy who just doesn’t know what NOT to say in public….SMH.
