05:20 PM ET 04.30 | Yesterday, Jason Collins became the first openly gay athlete in one of the four major sports. But while he might be the first one to go public with sexuality, others are claiming that they played with homosexual teammates. Mainly Dallas Cowboys players from the early '90s. Darren Woodson said he played with homosexual teammates and defensive tackle Tony Casillas went on a local radio show on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas to echo what he said.

Gays make up about 4% of the population. It stands to reason a lot of players throughout the years have had gay teammates.

I've heard Troy Aikman and Steve Young would hit up gay bars in Dallas. I was too young to know what gay meant or ask any questions but it always stuck with me.

Nothing like spreading half-a**ed rumors around the interweb!

Stop the presses! There have been gays in sports.

I just don't get why it's relevant.

Following that logic, there are also some gay posters on here.

Perhaps, but to parallel, just because the world has 50% women does not mean there are any on FN. Probably dudes pretending to be women.

Aren't all the cowboys gay?

Hey, women are on FN and love football and sports too. I learned that if you know a little something about football or sports, you can strike up a conversation with anyone, especially the cute boys. Even if they are wearing a Packers or North Carolina jersey.
