06:05 PM ET 03.01 | In case you;re wondering, no teams cannot ask a player about their sexual orientation and so far no one has been identified as asking Te'o the forbidden question of what team he bats for. But while it's a mini-controversy that a lot of people are rolling their eyes at due to the fact we're all sick of hearing about Lennay Kekua and anything that has to do with whatever Lennay Kekua actually is, the issue of sexual orientation and sports has gone to a level it's never been to before and the Te'o scandal is quickly becoming the poster child of the movement. It's honestly a question we're all wondering about because as good, clean Americans we love to stick our noses in other people's business -- specifically well-known people. But it's been long discussed that we will one day have an openly gay player playing in the NFL and some believe Te'o is the closest thing we've had to that. But the NFL is starting to recognize they have a nuclear crisis on their hands, one that if left unwatched will destroy the sport -- not because they'll have a gay player in the NFL, but because they have straight players afraid of a gay player in the NFL.

Do these jokers at Fansided think before they type or just pull words out their ass?

Unfortunately, I believe they are.

That's a rhetorical question, right?

I'm not even sure... I think it was a statement of frustration.

These Fansided articles they've been shoving down our throats are the worst. I always prefer the TnR articles cited from random local newspapers.

True. Those are at least SUPPOSED to be from a real newspaper.

Excluding the NY Post, of course.
