Tedy Bruschi: A gay teammate will be one of the most difficult things NFL players ever deal with

New, 3 comments

Former New England Patriot Tedy Bruschi made some really crazy claims on ESPN this week in regards to Michael Sam and a gay athlete:

"I think they can. I think it will be more difficult for some than others," he said. "I think so. Because you are talking about a locker room where there is immaturity, OK, there is youth, alright, and this is probably the most, one of the most difficult situations that some of them will have to deal with up to this point of their lives, dealing with a gay teammate something that they haven't had to deal with before. It's different. It's uncommon. Putting young kids in that situation, you will get mixed reaction."
