The SUPER BOWL is Sunday between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens and we hope that neither team is thrown off their game with controversy popping up on the sidelines. Plenty of controversy has been stirred up between the teams with media attention on Ray Lewis’s past and now a near “outing” of two members of the 49ers team.
Linebacker Ahmad Brooks and nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga both participated in a video called “It Gets Better” video last summer, but now deny ever being a part of the short film that “specifically combats bullying experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) teens.”
Both players told USA Today Sports that they had no clue that this was the aim of the video. They thought it was just bullying in general:
“This is America and if someone wants to be gay, they can be gay,” Brooks told the publication. “But I didn’t make any video.” Later, after he was reportedly shown the video on an iPhone, the player clarified, “Oh, that. It was an anti-bullying video, not a gay [rights] video.”
Then Sopoaga pulls a Te’o and amnesia of the entire video was lost from his memory:
“I never went,” he declared. “And now someone is using my name.”
Bringing this video to the forefront has shrouded the team members in some kind of weird homosexual outing via video. Just before the Super Bowl? Is someone trying to take them off their game or are the players really gay? Either way, the timing is suspicious. We don’t care about their sexual preference.
