Chris Culliver made some bold statements on having a gay teammate.
San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver made waves with a recent comment on his stance against having a gay teammate. Here are the details of his comments.
“I don’t do the gay guys, man. I don’t do that. No, we don’t got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do. Can’t be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can’t be…in the locker room man. Nah.”
Culliver says he prefers his teammates to reveal their homosexuality 10 years after retirement. This goes against the stance the team has taken for their anti-bullying campaign on homosexuals.
Randy Moss made waves during Super Bowl Media Day.
Super Bowl Media Day gives us a bunch of great opportunities for nonsensical questions from media to players in hopes of one quote that could be used and spun into 500 different stories.
Randy Moss obliged the media with this comment about being the greatest receiver ever.
“Now that I’m older, I do think I’m the greatest receiver to ever do it. I don’t think numbers stand. Because you can talk about this and this, I think I’ve had … this year has been a down year for me statistically. The year before I retired was a down year, and Oakland was a down year. I don’t really live on numbers — I really live on impact and what you’re able to do on that field.”
A flashback to a time when video games were simple.
Thanks Tecmo Bowl for giving us another great nugget and helping us get an idea of what could happen this Sunday!
Congratulations 49ers on your 31-17 win.
This is what I don’t understand. Why do people take sports so seriously? How come it leads to something like this?
I don’t know if the people involved were thugs or anything, but there has to be a reason why someone felt it was necessary to pull a knife and hurt somebody. I know emotions are running high, but is it ever necessary to go to a football game with a knife with the potential intent on using it?
Sports is something we’re all supposed to enjoy and it should be a safe place for people. But with arguments and all that loud banter, sometimes people don’t know their limits. Sadly, stupid things like this happen. Can we put an end to this madness?
Colin Kaepernick’s success came in part by Alex Smith’s willingness to mentor him.
Yes, I criticized Alex Smith for costing himself the starting job due to the concussion. But it was what happened afterward that made me appreciate his attitude towards the whole thing.
Instead of being bitter about not being the star quarterback of the team heading to the Super Bowl, Smith told Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports that he’s happy for all that’s happened.
“I’m so happy, man,” Alex Smith said afterward as he dressed alone at his locker. “This is so surreal. It’s such a crazy time, such a crazy moment. Obviously, it’s been a unique year, and it would be great to be in there. But I couldn’t be happier. This is a great group of guys, and they’re all Super Bowl bound. I’m just so happy for all of them.”
Patrick Willis and the 49ers are going to the Super Bowl!
Isn’t it great? The 49ers are heading back to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 1994 season. It’s a great feeling for me since I grew up a 49ers fan but it means a lot more to me because it’s special for so many people I know.
My dad loves the team and I can just imagine him being so happy. He taught me the game and we watched the Niners when I was a young kid. This is for him.
I got so many friends who are also Niners fans and this is something that I know they are enjoying. They are true fans, not the bandwagon kind and they deserve this too.
But most importantly, this victory means so much to me because of all the great people I met in my three years on the beat covering the team.
Who’s going to the Super Bowl? Check out my predictions below.
Can Frank Gore run over the Falcons?
SAN FRANCISCO (2) VS ATLANTA (1)
After what the 49ers did to the Packers last week you’d think they would steamroll their way to the Super Bowl. But the Falcons are tougher than most people give them credit for. Their secondary isn’t that great which might be the 49ers’ best chance to score. But their front seven is pretty solid (if John Abraham is healthy) and the 49ers need to figure out how to run against a well-coached Mike Nolan defense.
On the other hand, the 49ers will have their hands full trying to stop the Falcons offense. Jacquizz Rodgers is turning into a great backup for Michael Turner and the 1-2 punch could give the 49ers some problems. The biggest concern is the passing game. Tony Gonzalez continues to play at a high level and the wide receivers of Julio Jones and Roddy White have caused matchup problems all year. The 49ers have to be careful on the intricate passing routes they have.
The biggest factor will come down to Colin Kaepernick. He was able to bounce back after an interception last week. Can he avoid that and play well from the start? That will determine if the 49ers can silence the loud home crowd early in the game.
Ultimately, the 49ers defense likely will set the tone for the 49ers here.
If the allegations are true, this guy is in trouble.
If you haven’t heard the news, Michael Crabtree is being questioned on a case of sexual assault. He’s complied with everyone and is with the team in Atlanta right now.
I don’t know what to make of this. The woman reportedly went to the police a few days after the incident. That sounds fishy. But at the same time, these kinds of sexual assaults are so common in this day and age with athletes that I will never rule out anything.
It’s a surprise to me though because in my years covering Crabtree, he has never come off as a guy that would do such a thing. His shy demeanor never came off to me as a very aggressive guy that would hurt a woman.
