  •  not a hero (0+ / 0-)

    and it was absolutely stupid when Matt Taibbi compared him to Jackie Robinson, that was going way too far...

    the circumstances which make him not a hero.

    1) he's already at the end of his career, very very low risk/reward ratio for him.

    2) wasn't a top player. this made it less sensational since he spent more time on the bench and wasn't a household name, which further reduces what he had to lose by coming out.

    i think it's great someone finally came out, but I do not call him a hero.

    and Broussard is obviously a complete moron and so is every christian that uses selective literally-interpreted bible quotes to justify bigoted worldviews.

    Deficits don't matter, jobs do.
