I don 't see how this can still be an issue to teams. Just get over it and focus on stuff that matters.

Perhaps, there was some misinterpretation. Maybe the dude asking was interested in having a relationship with him?

It could be to test the players, see if they blabber to the media about trivial things which he did.

Don't you believe that there are more appropriate ways to ask questions about a young man's persona?

I think that is the whole point IMO. Make it somewhat not appropriate. Picking an employee that is going to tattle tale on every single issue in a company no matter how small is going to be a problem. These things go on at most companies. Am I going to tattle on someone at work for asking if I'm gay? No. It's stupid and not worth my time. I can be trusted somewhat to not create drama at work which is a big problem in the NFL right now. If a player is very sensitive to that stuff they are going to cause problems.

Jeff Ireland did it and while some may have gotten punched in the nose for it, I believe it's totally appropriate.

And there was cause, concern to believe his Mom was living that lifestyle, career...

At the very least, Ireland needed to get the facts so he could get out in front of it to handle a host of situations that could, would occur...

Look, you're about to pay, in many cases, several millions of dollars for an athlete not only to perform and contribute to wins, but represent your team to your fanbase.

And a fanbase is hard cash paying customers that buy tickets, concessions, and jerseys...

Personnel men have a fiduciary responsibility to their teams to secure players who will not be a distraction, can perform their duties, and appealing to the fan base...

That's the reality of why those questions are asked and should be appropriate...

This willy-nilly political-correct bullshinski of trying to legislate, decree how people should behave, think, act really needs to stop...

Because the truth is, more than half this country may tolerate those who choose alternate lifestyles, but they do not accept them in the mainstream of life...
