    He’s not a token. That’s an insult to him. It is not his fault that he is the only one with the courage to come out. There are definitely others.

    I will tell you guys why. I hate feminine gay guys. I also hate masculine gay guys. I hate anything gay. I hate this site. I hate my parents who made me gay. I hate myself.

    He earned this. He’s a really good solid player (not a GREAT player, but I hope he’ll get there). This was the right choice for Brooklyn.

    Gays are the new leprechauns (with that pot-o-gold) for organized sports. Equality = kaCching
