"Kordell Stewart/Gay Rumors"


  

          

Methinks Kordell doth protest too much.

Excerpted from an article from this week's SI:

"Stewart's sensitivity and his low profile off the field made him seem distant to teammates during his difficult periods.
Moreover, some Steelers admit they were fazed by rumors that Stewart was gay, until he called a meeting before the 1999 season and issued a denial that included graphic descriptions of heterosexual acts he enjoys. 'I could see the humor in the situation,' Stewart says, 'so I decided to have some fun with it. At one point I said, "You'd better not leave your girlfriends around me, because I'm out to prove a point." A couple of guys said, "F'ck you, Kordell," and we all cracked up.'"

If anything, the team meeting described in the article wouldn't dispel the gay rumors, but make them seem more real. The whole situation seems forced and pathetic -- not funny as Kordell claims.

What's really interesting is the whole homophobic culture of athletics -- the fact a player has to stand before the team to prove his (supposed) heterosexuality.

The days of an un-closeted gay NFL player -- esp. a QB -- are far, far away.

first off, garcia's gotta come out of the closet eventually....

second, i think you may be misinterpreting the spirit of the meeting. it sounds to me like it at least MAY have been a man very comfortable in his own sexuality who decided to confront the rumor head-on rather than let it be something that causes problems. that is, if he's gay, he can either ignore the rumors or admit it, but if he's straight and he ignores the rumors, he still looks gay, and that could cause problems within the team.

do a michael westbrook and beat the hell out of a teammate spreading those rumors. remember what westbrook did to stephen davis, right? flattened him and bitch beat him while he was on the ground. and everybody knows westbrook is gay, but he still fights like a man. basically, it doesn't matter. being on the beat, i've been hearing this ish about kordell for years. all that matters is that he produces on the field.

Westbrook and Garcia are gay? Not that there is anything wrong with that. Where do y'all get your info from?

Damn Michael Westbrooks is gay. I knew about the Kordell (head in schenley park rumor rumors b/c I live in Pittsburgh. You never hear anyone talkin shit about Westbrook after he beat Davis' ass. Was that asswhoopin connected to gay rumors?

You
>never hear anyone talkin shit

>connected to gay rumors?

Supposedly, Davis called West-broke a "faggot" b/c of his perceived unwillingness to play through injury -- in that sense, the use of the homophobic slur was not necessarily directed at Westbroke's actual sexual preference.

In contrast, the Kordell rumors were actually about him being gay.

Now as for West-broke actually being gay... I don't know. As a Skins fan thouhg, I want him the hell off my team (though Spurrier might figure out a way to get him to play).

no, davis was one of several players calling westbrook a fag not only because of his unwillingness to play thru injury, but also because he had been seen cruising several gay spots and coming out with men by teammates. that was the running inside joke on him and davis just took it too far. davis had been berrating westbrook for days with the faggot stuff and westbrook finally snapped and beat his ass. that's fact.

get used to it. westbrook is actually bi. but he has more of a preference for women than men.

Why are teammates fighting over gay rumors always happening in DC? We had Westbrook-Davis, and then Strickland-Murray with the Wizards, while C-Webb and Juwan were spreading herpes throughout The Area!

a cio-worker is a pittsburgh natiove and his father was always calling him and telling him the gay kordell rumors. the rumors did start when he started playing terribly. i could care less give me good gay players anyday.

Yeah, as much as I joke about Garcia being gay, word around the Bay Area is that he and TO and a few other single guys tear it up with the women when they're in town.

Just because a football player doesn't have a reverberating baritone voice and isn't massive doesn't mean he's gay. Everyone thought Steve Young was gay for a while, and it just turned out he was the world's oldest unmarried Mormon. And as if Garcia rejected 30 other teams just so he could play in the alleged gay capital of the planet. Garcia would've played for anyone, as long as they were in an "FL" that did not begin with the letter C.
