SF 49ers Player Chris Culliver

I'm a Hateful Bastard

... But Only In My Head

San Francisco 49ers player Chris Culliver says HE's not really a homophobe ... but the voices inside his head sure are.

Culliver has released a nonsensical, insincere statement to save his ass after saying gay players are not welcome in his team's locker room and should stay in the closet until 10 years after they retire.

"The derogatory comments I made yesterday were a reflection of thoughts in my head, but they are not how I feel," Culliver said.  

"It has taken me seeing them in print to realize that they are hurtful and ugly. Those discriminating feelings are truly not in my heart. Further, I apologize to those who I have hurt and offended, and I pledge to learn and grow from this experience."

So the following questions are raised:
1) Is Chris' head disembodied from the rest of him?
2) Will he say or do anything to play in the Super Bowl no matter how detestable he is?
3) Doth he protest too much?

If there was a parade for heterosexuals there would be a huge outcry of discrimination. Enough already. You're gay. Great. Isn't the point that you want to be treated the same as everyone else. Fine, go live your life. You don't need to parade around in various stages of dress or undress to prove that you're gay.

They left out the last line of his statement: "I am far, far, far from being homophobic."

Baltimore also has a player who is against gays. His name is Matt Birk. People all of the sudden rooting for Baltimore are stupid considering both teams have idiots. The 49ers are the first NFL team to put out a "It gets better" video aimed at bullying and gay hate. So, good luck with that. The opinion of one guy does not reflect an entire team.

He is a dumbass who does not deserve to play in the superbowl. You have to be pretty damn stupid to bring heat on your team right before their dream day. What a fool!
