More like, no one will give a toss about a players sexuality. A much more mature & healthy society.

Hopefully. It should not be relevant, but unfortunately the BBC luvvies will carry on making it headline news.

Any particular reason why you’ve mentioned the BBC, as I haven’t seen this as headline news for them recently?

I just googled the topic, and it seems to be more of interest to the tabloids.

Returning to the topic, politicians used to think their careers would be ruined if they came out...but now few care. If people can feel comfortable voting for their gay local MP, I don’t think there’s much for footballers to worry about.

Verbally abused? I think they would quite likely get verbal abuse from fans, yes. Would they get comments from other players? Quite possibly. And yes, I do suspect they worry about it too. Why else would feel the need to hide it?

As I said this is not about people having to make a big statement of coming out but about a culture that makes people have to hide their boyfriends/ partners/ who feel unable to go out in public as a couple and hide away part of themselves.

When I did some work with the Premier League a few years ago it was their big thing to try and tackle but they knew fans and the press would be fairly merciless in making lives of players hell. Most teams including us have one or more gay players and other players will be aware. Pretty sad that the atmosphere is still too toxic to just be who you want to be while you are a player. Will take some very brave individuals to do so.

The only people who seem to care anymore are tabloid headline writers. Well, apart from the 1% of the population who get off on being upset.

Don’t forget religious folk. Their Gods don’t like The Gays. You’d think if you were God you wouldn’t make any in the first place. Big beardy know it all twat.

Often said, but simply not true.

This is worth a quick watch. Tough for players even in non-league to come out to team mates. Reckon it'll happen further up the leagues soon, even if it's a couple of years rather than months.
