Current Bruin on Thomas: 'He's not my teammate'

08:21 AM ET 07.27 | Tim Thomas is back ... on Facebook anyway. Thomas took to Facebook again Thursday by supporting Chick-fil-A, which is owned by the Cathy family. The Cathys have been outspoken in opposing gay marriage. That flies right in the face of the "You Can Play" project, which encourages a safe environment for a homosexual NHL player to come out to the league. This is perhaps he most controversial of the stances Thomas has taken, and the Bruins no longer have to explain why it isn't a bad thing. "He isn't playing next year," one current Bruin told WEEI.com Thursday, "which means he's not my teammate, which means I don't have to react to his Facebook posts."

I get it now. I always thought the "You Can Play" project was a motivational poster for the Leafs.

Not sure how being opposed to gay marriage flies in the face of the "you can play project", but it's hardly shocking that the media would try to make it so. I didn't realize hockey and the NHL was now going to become an advocate for the GLAT lobby.

Thomas is entitled to his opinion and never needed any of his teammates to OK them or explain them......especially a chickenschiit one that is too cowardly to go on the record.

Sorry Rex this was taken from a Bruins Blog so I guess they're the advocates.

okay...
1) It's not just the marriage opossition, they are kind of bigoted anyway, so yeeah, that does go opposite of an itiative to promote tolerance.
2) he is indeed allowed his opinion...but so is the league. But is bigotry and exclusion an opinion?
3) GLAT lobby? Timmy keeps kosher?

I agree about this part though, maybe cowardly isn't the right word. I will say that some of the people that....feel the same way Timmy seems to" aren't always so ready to let others disagree, and life could be made tough for this guy. The left isn't much better sometinmes....but they don't shoot people

Undercooking them is a common f up.

DID YOU KNOW:

Long before the McChicken, CFA invented the fast-food chicken sandwich. Groundbreaking for its time, and to this day, still the best chicken sandwich out there.
