Terry Crews

Gay NFL Players Have It

As Tough As Gay Soldiers

EXCLUSIVE

040513_terry_crews_launchIf a gay NFL player is about to come out publicly ... football player-turned actor Terry Crews thinks the guy's facing a huge challenge due to what he calls ... "ultra-badass" machismo.

Terry's known for his tough guy acting roles now, but also played 7 seasons in the NFL -- and told us it's harder to come out in pro football than any other sport "because of the violent nature of it."

He added, "It's almost like the military."

As for whether the rumors of a player coming out are true -- Terry definitely has an opinion ... one that's tied to Prez Obama.

Just watch.

I say it would b hard for players to come out cause, they porb feel ftbll is a very aggressive sport and if they come out they mite b looked at as being soft. Every1 has their own likes and dislikes thats part of being human, to me it doesn't matter if u like men or not wat matter is wat team wins or loses cause thats wat we're watching it for.
