Andrew Luck says NFL ready for gay player: “I’d be disappointed if there was a negative reaction among players”
Andrew Luck is the guy who replaced Peyton Manning as quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts.
In an interview with CNN, he had this to say about the possibility of an openly gay player in the NFL:
It’s the 21st century and I know I would have absolutely no problem with it. I hope no one would treat them any differently than any straight player, no special treatment — he’s just another guy. It’s none of our business, sexual preference of people.
I hope that if someone is thinking about it and they do come out as gay as a professional football player and it makes them happy and it makes their life easier, than I think they should do it. When it does come, I’d be disappointed if there was a negative reaction among players.
