    I'll bet Tebow is a Santorum guy too.

    What's an unborn marriage?

    Not for nothing, and no knock on any poster here, but if we're going to complain about athletes never taking a public position on anything in order to protect their endorsements, it seems to me we have to praise Rivers for his conviction even if we disagree with his politics.

    You were on the other side of the Tim Thomas argument.

    What makes this different? Are you more sold that Rivers has an actual thought?

    Not true.

    I thought Thomas's "protest" was cowardly. He announced his "stand", then refused to answer questions about it.

    He's from Alabama. What do you expect?

    I agree.

    I guess it's fine and dandy that Rivers is willing to take a stand, but I have to swallow pretty hard to praise him for taking a stand against gay marriage. History will not judge him or anyone else on that side of the debate kindly. See: Rupp, Adolph.

    The QB from the team I used to cover is a republican and he was going to do a robo-call encouraging the locals to vote for a local candidate and the PR department (wisely) talked him out of doing it.

    It'd be really interesting if someone on the Chargers came out of the closet and then confronted Rivers on why he felt he was entitled to tell him who he can and cannot marry.
