Same thing with tennis player Gustavo Kuerten, who many said was gay. I knew his name of course; I followed hockey obsessively for a while. It's also a very small, conservative, provincial town even by Canadian standards.After he retired he got married and had several children."Plenty of closeted gay or bi guys get married, whether they are athletes or not I think there are a lot of pro-gay athletes, OP. The NHL, however, seems to have zero gay athletes, retired or otherwise. One superstar hockey player in particular and not Sidney Crosby. He lived with his older manager for about ten years in Toronto. Before his retirement Lindros was about to be outted in the media. IIRC, I assumed at the time Curran was gay, but not that they were a couple. The only time Lindros was happy in his entire, miserable hockey career was junior hockey and his days with the Oshawa Generals.Maurice Greene's manager blabbed to a girlfriend about procuring young white boys for him to fuck and Tyson Gay being a one of the nicest guys in sport: a relationship-oriented bisexual who got burned a lot by the men he dated that he's recently started to restrict himself to women who aren't much better.r103 here and I just read my post.Please excuse the errors as I was posting from a phone with a mind of it's own.Athletics wise, Kelly Holmes is so obviously gay, but I doubt she'll come out any time soon.Was rumoured to have been fucking her training partner, the extremely butch Maria Mutola. One more thing, and I hate to say this because it panders to stereotypes, but are we sure that there are even that many gay (male) pro athletes?
He actually seems a regular family guy, shocker, I know.I'm a huge fan of track & field athletics (wish more posted here) and could regale with tales of their heterosexual exploits, but that's for another thread, I guess.However, saying those two were having lesbians is like purporting to out Caster Semenya.The fans and endorsement deals are another issue though.r94 other players in the league hate him.He suffered for the lack of enforcers/power forwards in today's NHL.If he were gay, he could be free to live how he wants now, but he still got married.BTW, Eric Lindros hit a wall in his 40's, and hit the wall hard. I wonder if Michael Sam would want a "good" player, like Aaron Rodgers to come out.Yes, Carl Lewis is a joke and apparently hated by everyone in the sport and beyond.Gay (and fucked up about it) but I'd rather not claim him.Lindros had a son this year, Carl Pierre, named for his father. If you're going further back in time, I know who you mean. Seguin is a known partier and probably drunk tweets. They were together years before though not living together and there were also rumors, involving a restaurant tiff between the two, of him and Mike Piazza when Lindros was in New York. Everything else in the guys hockey career was nothing but misery and disappointment. R85 I think some of the "problem" is that it's not unexpected these days for female athletes to be gay (especially in basketball and soccer, 5 of the starting 11 in the English WNT in soccer are gay, for example), but for men it's still seen as strange by some people that athletes would be gay.The family pressure might have been a factor in his burrowing deeper into the closet.r60 Del Zotto was also a Ranger for a time. R89 haha, yeah I just noticed it was indeed post number 87! He did take that Kathy girl to the Olympics with him. She was with his parents at the Olympics and at various games, yes, but she was with a guy too (at the Olympics, specifically), and I believe that guy is her boyfriend. He'll probably play for another six or seven years and by then hopefully the attitudes towards gay players will change.
