Deion Sanders contributed to the discussion of gay players being in the National Leagues on The Arsenio Hall Show.  The Hall of Famer, Sanders, stated that there has always been a gay player on the rooster throughout his years in the franchise.

“We always knew,” Sanders said. “But he was cool. That was our boy. We had to look out for him.”

Sanders brought out the fact that Michael Sam, is not the first gay player to play for any league, but he is considered to be the first gay player to make it public information.

As far as Sanders view on same gender relationships, he said that he did not “condone or condemn” the act.

“I don’t condone or condemn, but I’m going to love him,” Sanders said this week on The Arsenio Hall Show. “He’s not the first gay guy in the NFL. He’s the first one to come out. Let’s get that straight.”

He continued to explain his view on the issues while supporting the coming out of Sam. The former Dallas Cowboys player expressed that it is a great opportunity for the league to rally around the talk about everybody being a part of the family.

Sanders also said that the only thing that matters in the long run is if the player can play, the fact that the athlete is gay is not the forefront of the issues surrounding the league momentum.   The NFL Network Analyst, Sanders, articulated clearly that if the athlete can play everything else should be secondary.

Sam tweeted recently thanking Sanders and Jerome Bettis for encouraging him to make the needed steps for his announcement. The decision was supported by Sanders from the beginning. The only concern with coming out with that kind of information, is that there is a possibility that it could affect the way players are treated on the field or court, especially football.
