02:22 PM ET 04.19 | In a recent interview of LSU football players on their opinions of gay athletes, the Tigers had varying opinions. Running back Alfred Blue, for example, didn't like the idea. "Football is supposed to be this violent sport - this aggressive sport that grown men are supposed to play," said senior LSU running back Alfred Blue. "Ain't no little boys out here between them lines. So if you gay, we look at you as a sissy. You know? Like, how you going to say you can do what we do and you want a man?" While Blue's attitude is disappointing, kicker James Hairston is more open-minded. "I believe that this is an important issue, one that does need to come to the forefront, that does need to be talked about," Hairston said. "But I think the main thing is people can learn as fans, as athletes, as just people in general, just respect one another and it ends at that."

Caleb. although Matthew`s posting is unbelievable, last monday I bought a gorgeous Bugatti Veyron after having made $7185 this munth and-a little over, $10 thousand this past-month. it's by-far the most COMfortable job I have ever done. I started this five months/ago and almost immediately started bringin home minimum $80 per/hr. I use the details on this web-site, >>> WWW.BIG76.COM

COMfortable job? $80/hour? hmmm.......what could that be?

Like it or not, the majority of these guys are still kids and won't like guys that come out as gay. It will be a distraction.

And honestly, it will probably be that way in the NFL. As it goes on through the years, it will become less of an issue, but the first few years for the first ones to come out are going to go through a hazing period, I'm sure, from opposing players, opposing fans, and even some of their own teammates.

And you're looking for intelligent commentary from the LSU football team? Really?

Ha ha ha ha,,, too funny.

One thing about this subject i do agree with the gayss on,, is that,, they are clearly born that way,, no man in his right mind would ever choose a male over a female as a life long companion, the idea is totally laughable.

So its who they are, let it be and lets talk about something interesting that CAN be changed.
Like Notre Dame choking against every big time opponent they've faced in a bowl game for the last 20+ years. With therapy and determination this wrong can and will be corrected.

The title above the article is kinda funny though..

Do you think it will take Alfred Blue more or less than 48 hours to issue "a full and sincere" apology?

my neighbor's step-sister makes 77 an hour on the laptop. She has been without work for 7 months but last month her paycheck was 14207 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Go to this web site and read more http://www.wow92.com

Does she really lay on top of the "laptop"??? 77 dollars a hour is not all that good for what she is suppose to do, "on top of a laptop"!!! I have tried it on the kitchen table , on the countertop, but damn I never had it on a "laptop"!!!

One can only hope that the first gay player Blue runs into is a 6'9, 285 lb middle linebacker who splits Blue's helmet in two as he tries to run up the middle...then stands over him and asks "who you callin" a sissy?".

What a tool.

They didn't have laptops back when you could.

wow, kind of a touchy subject. bottom (pardon the pun) line is, gays are naturally attracted to the same sex, sexually. how could this be overlooked in the locker room? it's not something you can turn on and off. if we are going to pretend to be so sophisticated why not have the cheerleaders share the locker room as well? or is the plan to have seperate locker rooms? segregated locker rooms.

Here is the poster child for those against gay people. Homophobes and morons like this kid from lus assume that a gay man, is attracted to EVERY man, therefore they feel uneasy. Will they be attracted to some of their teammates??? Probably. But as long as the guy does his job on the field, what do you care how he spends his private time.

To bad a kid can fail double digit drug tests and he still is welcome by the school and his team. Someone who is gay has to go through a ton of hassle for something because people are so close minded and uneducated. It's sickening.
