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.
