Sports Illustrated: Americans conflicted on gays in sports


April 12, 2005
CBS SportsLine.com wire reports


NEW YORK -- A majority of people believe there is nothing wrong with openly gay male athletes participating in sports, but nearly 24 percent think an openly gay athlete would hurt their team, according to an NBC/USA Network poll.

The mixed results of the survey on American attitudes toward gay athletes appear in the latest issue of Sports Illustrated, which hits newsstands Wednesday. Of the 979 people interviewed, 86 percent agreed it is OK for openly gay men to play sports, but some seemed to back off when asked if that could hurt their team.

"It was like, I'm OK with this, but if you press me, I have some doubts," said Doug Schoen, whose firm, Penn, Schoen & Berland Associates, conducted the poll.

The views of athletes also seem to be mixed when they are asked about the issue. When Esera Tuaolo came out after his NFL playing career ended, Sterling Sharpe said his former teammate was smart to hide his sexuality.

"Had he come out on a Monday, with Wednesday, Thursday and Friday practices, he'd have never gotten to the other team," Sharpe said.

But Reds outfielder Ken Griffey Jr. said he wouldn't have a problem accepting a gay teammate.

"Wouldn't bother me at all. If you can play, you can play," he said.

In another mixed result from the poll, 79 percent of respondents agreed Americans are more accepting of gays in sports today than they were 20 years ago. But 62 percent agreed the reason there is so little coverage of gays in sports is that America is not ready to accept gay athletes.

Penn, Schoen & Berland Associates conducted interviews among the general population from March 18-21. The margin of error sampling is +/- 3.1 overall

================================================== =====

Could you accept a gay athlete on your favorite team?

Personally, I believe in "don't ask, don't tell"

Friggin' Muckrakers. I don't care as long as an issue isn't made out of it. If all you're going to hear is "GAY GAY GAY" then fuck 'em.

I always did think Carmella was his beard.

Mike "Ron Mexico" Vick, I have my doubts about.

Come on Desi...I let Mike Vick go on the gay thing just on the strength of his "Everyone knows how I like to get down," response to it. That shit was hilarious!!

A year or so ago, some MLBer said he would have a prob w/ a gay teammate mainly because, "I wouldn't want to shower with one."

That's so fucking funny. Like every single time a gay guy goes into a locker room with a straight guy, it's on. You've got to be freaking kidding me, right?? It's like, bro...ever think that you might not exactly do it from the gay guy soaping off over there??

Homophobes = Losers.

Late.

Tracy McGrady says that he seen 10% of the NBA engage in homosexual acts in this one magazine. I doubt in the land of "thugs", that the number would be that high.
