I long for the good old days when you could watch a sport and just watch the sport you were interested in for the game rather than all the other BS of every day life just to get a couple of hrs to leave all that aside .

 

 

 

 

 

You can still do that.  This is a discussion forum...not the actual sports broadcast.

The original Bruce Smith video is here:

 

Not that it matters, but since people are speculating here, at 2:16 of the video above, Bruce says the player played on the Bills in the mid- to late-90's. He also there there might have been two such players on the team. Shouldn't be news, but it is, unfortunately, in this day and age still, so much so that TMZ had to "break" this story.

This has not been handled as maturely as I had hoped. 

 

I don’t care who it was, I’m just glad it wasn’t a big deal. 

 

Period. 

 

This is how "not a big deal" it was.  The player in question's best friend on the team was also the biggest womanizer on the team.  (Neither player has been mentioned this thread.)  So, there was sort of a pleasant, harmless joke that these two guys were on each end of the "spectrum."  It was told to me that way to illustrate the point that nobody cared then.  In my view, nobody should care now.  None of us should judge who makes another person happy.

I could see Bruce and Daryl going at it.

 

See now DT was the first Bill that popped into my mind....just based on the several times I saw him outside of the game at various events.....super super nice guy.

why?

 

Because by narrowing it down to a team and time period it goes from "that's good to hear" to "I wonder who it was?"  My second thought after I heard he said this is "I wonder if the player or players are OK with him revealing this?"

I served with multiple openly gay/lesbian brothers and sisters in arms in the late 90’s to late 2000s. Before it was “legal”.  Again no one cared. 
 

I think in situations where you work as a team in high stress environments, all you care about is capability, not their “turn ons and turn offs”. You honestly don’t have time to care about that other stuff. 
 

I think an NFL locker room is similar to a military unit in that regard. 
 

Great to see / hear.

I also wonder if the player(s) would agree with Bruce’s assessment that it was no big deal.

Like anything there would be people who would agree and people who would not.....

Revealing what?  He named no names.  And who cares anyway?
