New, comments

Former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason shares his thoughts on gays in sports.

Former NFL quarterback and current sports analyst Boomer Esiason commented on the coming out of UMass basketball player Derrick Gordon and says that athletes coming out of the closet soon won't be a story. It's a theme many publications have said in recent weeks. There are three current out gay athletes in any of the big four sports in pro or Div. 1 college -- and already this story is over? Yes, eventually it won't be a story, but we are still a few years from that place.
