Cyd made an appearance on the His & Hers Podcast that ESPN has been doing lately. They talked about the whole '4 players are coming out sooner than you think' story.
Cyd's part starts around 24:15.
I also thought the tone on some of these posts regarding Brendan Ayanbedejo were a bit harsh as well, but after listening to Cyd's perspective on the podcast, I can understand the harsh tone. Even agree with it a little. But Brendan made a mistake in what he said, and from his own interview on that same podcast (it's before Cyd's), it's clear he realizes it.
BTW, ESPN with a snap?
