NFL Scouts Want to Know if Manti Te’o is Gay

Manti Te'o

Former Notre Dame star Manti Te’o isn’t having a good week at the NFL Combines. The NFL scouting Combine, which ended yesterday in Florida, is where the top college player’s display their best skills for the pros to determine how high they are chosen in next week’s NFL draft.

If you recall, Te’o was in the news for mourning a dead girlfriend who existed only on his computer screen.

A male friend later stepped forward to say he was responsible for the dead girlfriend’s fake online profile, which he says he created because he was in love with Te’o. The bizarre incident led to speculation that Te’o himself was gay.

Te’o’s performance at the NFL Combines did not impressed NFL teams. And that has opened the door for Scouts to question him about aspects that have nothing to do with football, such as whether or not he like girls.

It would be ludicrous to assume that there are no gay NFL players, but the NFL locker room is one of the last bastions of male masculinity and machismo. And the NFL has a longstanding unofficial Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy.

CBS Chicago columnist Florio writes that “NFL teams aren’t buying Manti Te’o’s declaration that he’s not gay.”

“Here’s the elephant in the room for the teams and it shouldn’t matter but we have to step aside from the rest of reality and walk into the unique industry that is the NFL,” Florio said on The Dan Patrick Show Monday.

“Teams want to know whether Manti Te’o is gay. They just want to know. They want to know because in an NFL locker room, it’s a different world. It shouldn’t be that way.

“It’s just that they want to know what they’re getting. They want to know what issues they may be dealing with down the road. We just assumed that at some point there would be an openly gay player in an NFL locker room and the team would have to work with the realities and make sure that everything’s fine. Now you have a situation where you have a guy who was in a relationship with a fake girl who ended up being a real man, and the man has said to Dr. Phil that he was romantically in love with Manti Te’o, it just raises a lot of questions that the NFL at some point is going to have to deal with.”

But Te’o isn’t the only player being grilled about his sexual preferences at the NFL Combines.

Colorado University tight end Nick Kasa says the “are you gay” questions came fast and furious during his interview with scouts.

They would “ask you like, ‘Do you have a girlfriend?’ Are you married?’ Do you like girls?’” Kasa said Tuesday. “Those kinds of things, and you know it was just kind of weird.

“But they would ask you with a straight face, and it’s a pretty weird experience altogether.”

      So wait, serious question. Can’t the NFL get in some kind of law suite for asking these questions? Because it looks like they are trying to find out if ppl are gay or not, and since when is gay or straight a qualification for hire?

      What does one thing have to do with the other? If they weren’t impressed is there something about his sexuality that they think will make him better on the field?

      Exactly. and @ Naija, it should be covered. They should not be allowed to ask these types of questions. And if NFL players don’t want to play with ppl that are gay, they are more than welcome to quit. Because, not every gay man wants you!!! And if you were secure in what you are doing, it would not matter. Hell, yall already shower with the whole damn team. So everyone done already see what yall got. Chile please. And bet money there are gays in the NFL right now!

      Naija, I found this, so change is coming.

      Employment Non-Discrimination Act
      A number of states and the District of Columbia have already passed legislation prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation. With bipartisan support, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) has been introduced in Congress to broaden federal employment discrimination protections to include a ban on discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. The bill would prohibit employers from making decisions about hiring, firing, promoting or compensating an employee based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

      Remember that the NFL is not a corporation; it is a non profit organization. Only certain staff are considered “employees” within the NFL. Players are contracted. They are not applying to be staff, they are applying for a contracted position. For example, where I work, I am an employee and the part-time girl is under a separate contract. Under her contract, she signed off that certain corporate regulations will not apply to her and regular benefits available to employees will not be made available to her even if she is working on a project that makes her full-time for a few months.
