@Ralph-Wiggum I think it's a bit unfair to say someone in that position is attention seeking. You may not care about someone being gay and I certainly am not bothered because maybe we are level headed human beings but I grew up where my dad would practically say he'd throw me out of the house if I said I was gay. It doesn't mean hes a bad person, it's just how his generation think and they push it onto the nextThere are still thousands if people in this country and around the world who feel that way.
Imagine how terrifying it must be to be the first person who has to deal with that but whatever way the first person who comes out in football chooses to do it, I applaud them and think they are massively brave. I'm sure if genuine they dont want the attention but the only way to make things better is for one person to be brave enough and then many more will do the same.
