NFL Star Raheem Brock

Players Won't Shower

If a Gay Guy's In Locker Room

EXCLUSIVE

021114_raheem_brock_launchThe battle lines in the NFL gay rights struggle will be drawn in the showers ... according to one former NFL star.

Super Bowl champion Raheem Brock -- who spent 10 years in the league -- tells TMZ Sports ... there will be a massive coverup when openly gay players like Michael Sam enter the locker room.

Brock says, "Guys won't go in the shower if they know a guy's gay in there. They gonna feel uncomfortable. I wouldn't [go in the shower]."

He continues, "I mean I would stay at my locker and chill until he's done getting out of the shower."

Brock says his feelings mirror those of a number of active NFL players -- regardless of whether it's politically correct.

One of my brothers plays college football, he and buddies have always known theres closeted gay dudes playing. But he said they just ignore it, take a quick shower ,and get on the bus ,or get to their girlfriends,classes,etc. Makes sense, if you protest it, it might seem you're interested in guy lovin....hmmmm! Go STEELERS!

Closed minded fools! Pretty sure that just bc he's gay doesn't mean he wants to bang all the football players if they take showers together. I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem if it was a female that had to shower with those morons.

What an ignorant mentality. Just because he's gay doesn't mean he's going to try to rape you or won't be able to contain himself. Grow up.

Well I'm not closed minded and I understand. It's like a group of women allowing a straight man to shower with them. Not going to happen. Or a group of men being cool w a woman showering w them. There will be sexual tension no latter the situation and therefore I understand being uncomfortable w that.

Doesn't have to 'want to bang every guy there'. Men and women aren't allowed in the same locker room. Gay guy likes men, put him in with the women. Or make a separate room.
