"I think he would not be accepted as much as we think he would be accepted. I don't want people to just naturally assume, oh, we're all homophobic. That's really not the case. Imagine if he's the guy next to me, and you know, I get dressed, naked, taking a shower, the whole nine, and it just so happens he looks at me, how am I supposed to respond?"

-- Jonathan Vilma, linebacker for the New Orleans Saints, telling the NFL Network's Andrea Kramer that he doesn't really want a gay teammate because the guy would, um, look at him and stuff. My my, someone's insecure eh?
