  1. 1993 NFL Team Had Two Gay Players, But Teammates Didn’t Care

    Two members of a 1993 playoff football team were gay, but we’re only finding out about it 20 years later because their Houston Oilers teammates didn’t care. While the players remain unnamed, teammates have not wavered in their support. “[They] were unbelievable teammates. And if you wanted to go to war with someone, you would get those guys first. Because I have never seen tougher guys than those guys,” former star linebacker Lamar Lathon said. In April, former player Brandon Ayanbadejo mentioned that a group of current NFL players were considering coming out as gay in unison.
