Who on Gods earth is this person saying he's coming out of the closet in the NFL? …  If you didn't do it when you were in high school or college then why wait til your in the NFL? Whoever he is he didn't just start … I'm not one to judge anyone because that's there personal preference. … it doesn't matter how good they are. That will immediately separate a lockerroom and divide a team … I'm not against anyone but I think it's a selfish act.  They just trying to make themselves bigger than the team.

Clemons later reeplied to another follower:

"No one said anything about be a homophobic. I just think something's should be left at home."
