Plaxico Burress: People Talked About Kordell Stewart Being Gay, I Don’t Know If He Is

Filed under: NY Giants, Steelers, NFL Media Watch, New York, PittsburghNew York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress has a new book out in which he addresses the rumors that his former teammate with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Kordell Stewart, is gay.

Burress says that while he doesn’t personally know or care if Stewart is gay, he does think that the rumors affected Stewart. From Pro Football Talk:
“People were talking about [Kordell] being gay,” Burress writes in Chapter 5. “The players heard that, but we never talked about it. I don’t know if Kordell is gay or not. It was none of our business. If ever we would have talked about it, it would have made everybody uncomfortable. If some player was gay, I don’t think he could come out while he was still playing. It would be real hard. It would mess a team up mentally and it wouldn’t be good for that person.”
If Burress is right that a player couldn’t come out while he was active in the NFL, that’s a sad commentary on the NFL. I’d like to think that we’re enlightened enough as a society that in most workplaces, coming out to a co-worker wouldn’t be a big deal. Burress seems to think NFL locker rooms are among our society’s least-enlightened workplaces, and I fear he’s right.
