Former USC DB Terrell Thomas On Michael Sam

Former USC cornerback Terrell Thomas, who plays for the New York Giants, drew attention this week with his comments to the New York Post on Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to enter the NFL Draft.

“I don’t believe in it, I don’t respect it, but if that’s what you want to do, so be it,’’ Thomas said. “I can’t speak for the NFL or our team or the locker room, I just know what goes on and what type of situation it’s going to put a lot of guys in.”

“The biggest thing is the media, hearing that a bunch of 18 and 20 year olds can accept him, why can’t a bunch of grown men in an NFL locker room? To be honest with you, the culture’s different. It is a brotherhood unlike no other.”

    Wow… did Terrell really not know about JD Booty?

    • IH8UCLA

      You mean the JD Booty, a married man and father of two. That JD Booty?

      • Walt Hazzard

        Please don’t bother West Hollywood Bob
        with reality

      • WESTWOOD ROB

        That’s the kind of “keep it on the down low” approach that Michael Sam is trying to break away from.

          Did you find the ashes yet?

          • WESTWOOD ROB

            What ashes? Did you set a fire somewhere bro?

          • rusoviet

            Hey whitebread IH8UCLA asked you – you’re inferring JD Booty is gay – you want to have the same thrown out that was hurled at Aikman?

            Go on back to your ‘westside fruitopian’ land.

          • WESTWOOD ROB

            Who’s Aikman?

          • TrojanFan3.0

            He’s still out in left field looking for they. pathetic!

    Woah, Gargamel and Chalize are going to get their Fairy boots and panties in a bunch over these comments!

    Wolf used to like TT, now, Weho army, errr I mean UCLA cadre of fairy trolls, unite!!

  • Helen

    Sounds like honest comments on how he believes players in the NFL will accept Sam. I would be surprised if it were otherwise.

    • SUCC de trop

      Gee Helen, why not sacrifice a large mausoleum rodent, read its entrails and divine the definitive prognostication on the Michael Sims situation will have on the NFL.

      • ScottWolfSniffsHisOwnFarts

        Your comments, particularly this one, are so inane that I really wonder if you are ever the least bit embarrassed by your routine display of stupidity?

        • SUCC de trop

          This opinion from a half wit clown who calls himself SWSHOfarts.

        • Joseph B. Lowe

          He’s not.

  • steveg

    So if a guy comes out and says he is straight heterosexual, will the lgbt crowd be alright with that or will he be a big bigot. I agreee with TT 100%. Why is who someone sleeps with a big deal, just do it and go on. Bucket does.

    • Ben Factor

      Steve, I don’t think you’re looking very deeply regarding this particular issue. Given the religious attitudes of many Americans, it goes a well beyond “Why is who someone sleeps with a big deal.” You and I are in Los Angeles, which is at one end of the spectrum. But the U.S. is not northern Europe–not by a long shot.

  • ScottWolfSniffsHisOwnFarts

    It seems like Terrell Thomas is of the same opinion as the vast majority of people. But the gay lobby will not be content until the vast majority endorses the homosexual lifestyle.

    • Cheap seats

      I don’t think it’s the gay lobbyists that make these nothing quotes blown out of proportion. It’s the media knowing the “hot buttons.”

      Agree with someone’s opinions or not, comments on gays and blacks will usually go viral and at times have punishments that are too harsh.

      Make fun of any other group (white, Latino, Asian, etc) and you’ll get nothing but crickets in the media. Just ask Floyd Mayweather.

    • tim chaney

      the lgbt community is trying to force their lifestyle down our throats… uh, no pun intended,,, LOL

    Troy Aikman was accepted.

  • timtrojan

    You think Troy Aikman transferred to baby blue U for the weather?

  • Fred Sampson

    I am amazed at the ignorance of not only NFL players , but society as a whole . The media is the largest entity in the world , and they have played such a big role in showcasing the negative aspect of the gay community . So quite naturally we will hear ignorant comments from misinformed Professional Athletes .

    • tim chaney

      one thing about it, TT is honest about the locker room and its culture. no, you cant deny that there are gay athletes, politicians. teachers, cops, clergy, so on… but the other side of the coin is how you can not force people to accept it openly. I think his opinion will be a common one in the pro locker room. its up to sam to show that he’s not just a gay football player, but that he’s a football player, maybe a damn good one, who just happens to be gay…

  • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

    what kind of “special brotherhood” is this? an ignorant bigot’s Club? Southern Rednecks greeted Jackie Robinson the same way, making Thomas’ intolerance even more shameful.

    in addition to this such adamant homophobic remarks are often made by latent homosexuals, ashamed of their own proclivities! evidence all of the Republican anti-Gay crusaders who were exposed as closeted homosexuals: Mark Foley, Ted Haggard, Larry “wide stance” Craig, Bob Allen, Glen Murphy, etc etc etc!
    in short, he may be ‘protesting too much?”

    a true embarrassment to Southern Cal.

    Sweeeet Scooopin’ wolfman!! hope this gets coverage in the press!

    • WESTWOOD ROB

      Some people say that the Cadre is “a brotherhood unlike no other,” and they really shouldn’t use a double negative like that, but still they are pretty much right.

      • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

        With it’s existing members, the Cadre could defeat most NFL teams in a “prison rules” football game. I am tempted to say we could beat any NFL team, but to be honest, depth could be an issue at some positions.

        • Joseph B. Lowe

          Your NEW Cadre is special. Say hello to Thaibean at Ripples tonight. I hear lbg is buying.

    • BearBryant3

      Sometimes people don’t know anyone around that is gay so they don’t understand. Most people are scared of what they don’t know. I grew up with two sisters that are gay, one who has been married for 16 years to her wife. I seen how happy my sister is and how loved she is. And really that’s what matters to me. Growing up around that environment, made me comfortable with gay people, because I know that there just people like everyone else.

      • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

        Great story! I agree ignorance is the core of the problem, but when people use their public platforms to spread this crap, people need to shout them down. I suppose it’s very likely this dumbbell has gay people in his family. So maybe he will soon see how his dumb actions affect others.

      Hey I rarely bother to respond to you but it is interesting you have your laundry list all ready of GOP – someone has his knickers in a tight wad…

      Hey sailor, ever thought of some ‘blow back’ (opps my bad – sorry everyone) due you? I’ll bet you have and you know just you documenting what a ‘pc’ back end of a horse you are is why you are here – I’ll bet you march and march for the fruitopian studies – hmm even if you are ‘regular’ (really?) you’re there for all the GLBT people and their flunkies – Obama, Hillary, Peolosi, Schumer, Gore well even a fool like you know the drill.

      Bob Costas – I forgot Bob Costas!

      Bobbie is all over Putin and I have to wonder is it because Putin is anti-fruitopian? I mean NBC is the most left leaning of all networks soooo -

        What else can you expect with Barack Hernandez Obama in the White Huose?

    You’re all trotting out the same discredited arguments about gays in the military: they would supposedly disrupt group cohesion. It turns out they don’t; and Sam didn’t disrupt the Missouri locker room. Way to keep hate alive, Terrell! And way to make Charlie Bucket sound like MLK Jr. with your support of this idiotic brotherhood talk!

  • SaferInWestwood

    “I don’t believe in it” – Terrell Thomas

    What does that even mean?? I wonder if hes trying to make a connection between Sam and the Easter Bunny.. .

    • Saul Goodman

      It’s a typical ignorant statement of someone who thinks people “choose” to be gay. That ignorance isn’t helped by the media’s perpetuation of gay being a sexual “preference” instead of orientation.
