NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Says League, Fans Will Accept an Openly Gay Player: VIDEO


NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told yesterday that the league will support an openly gay player.

Said Goodell: "I have such great respect for our players. I don't think it will just be tolerated, I think it will be accepted. These are individuals who play in our league. We're all different in some fashion, and we're accepting of our differences....That's what this is all about. To me, if it happens in the league, that's a personal choice that someone would decide to do. But I know their teammates and teams, and I think the fans will all respond the right way."
