Is that what you're referring to, CE?
It's a shame any way you slice this. This will follow him forever.
Don't know that I agree with you in terms of the gay aspect. Yes its not a big deal to a lot of people, but in the macho world of the NFL it would still be huge. I bet there would be several players who would express reservations about playing on the same team.
So for Manti it could be huge if he were outed as gay.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
