08:34 AM ET 02.02 | Days after San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver sparked off-field Super Bowl controversy by saying gays weren't allowed in his locker room, yet another high-profile athlete waded into what has become a frequent topic of conversation around professional sports. Three-time world series champion Curt Schilling, seemingly out of nowhere, chimed in on his official Twitter account Friday, saying he's confused as to what the controversy is when it comes to the prevalence of homosexuality in athletics. "I've never understood this 'issue' with gay players? Who cares? I know I played with some," Schilling wrote. "Why the hell would what they do in the bedroom ever matter?" Recently, though, Schilling's opinion hasn't been heeded by others -- and in Culliver's case, although he later apologized, the Niners' defensive back made his views known on a high-profile radio show this week.

Maybe. Or maybe he tried to deflect suspicion by being so vocal in his opposition to them. Who knows? It's hard to trust anyone, particularly Mr. Ketchup Sock.

why?a guy that got repeatedly injured through out his career then miraculously came back to have great seasons, then had his best seasons in his late 30's? Not sure if there isn't a more classic portrait for a pitcher

Think about it for a minute. Has there ever been anybody out there with such a self-righteous attitude on the subject. He has trashed anybody out there who's been associated with PED usage. Believe me if there was anybody out there who had any dirt on this guy, they would have buried him a long time ago. If he was dirty we would have seen his name come up by now.

He was probably drinking doepiss smoothies with Ray Lewis.
