Professional footballers are very interesting and from all walks of life. They have great stories when you get them away from the banter and the pack.
They can really open up. To become a professional footballer there is something special about you. You need this drive, this hunger.
Yet there is also something diseased at the heart of professional football — epitomised by its attitude towards homosexuality. Adding the gay aspect doesn't make a great cocktail. What would have happened if Rogers had still been playing for Leeds when he came out?
That would be so scary. The guys might have said, 'That's great, Robbie.
But because no-one's done it and because of the things I've heard in the dressing room I just thought: And, back in this country, apartmrnt he was playing for Leeds and they were away to Millwall today?
We end up laughing, helplessly, which shows how much football has to change.
Maybe a lot of fans aren't homophobic. But, in a stadium, sometimes they want to destroy you. In the past I would have said: It would be incredibly powerful if a gay footballer could face down that hate and abuse — just as black sportsmen apartment zero uk gay blog trains Jackie Robinson and Muhammad Ali stood up to racism in America. I might be strong enough but I don't know if that's really what I want.
I'd just want to be a footballer. I wouldn't want to deal with the circus. Are people coming to see you because you're gay?
Would I want to do interviews every day, apartment zero uk gay blog trains people are asking: I don't want to mess with that. Yet the response to his coming out seems to have been overwhelmingly positive. Guys I played with have sent messages saying, 'You know I was joking when I said that? Boog becomes thoughtful when asked if he knows any gay footballers.
Even now, one of my best friends said: We're such great actors because we're afraid to let people know who we are. We've been trained by our agents how to do interviews, how to present ourselves.
Robbie Rogers: why coming out as gay meant I had to leave football | Football | The Guardian
No footballer has since said to me, 'Robbie, thank you, I'm gay too…' I don't know if anyone will. Many gay men, surely, are playing professional football? I mean footballers dress really blof [he laughs]. Could he imagine a young gay footballer knocking on his manager's door to ask for advice?
Would I have trins the same opportunities when I was younger if I'd come out? I don't think so. There would have been that mentality: The way in which Fashanu was treated has been a bleak warning to any gay footballer.
He might have been a million pound gya but Brian Clough, one of the greatest managers this country has produced, demeaned him at Nottingham Forest as "a bloody poof.
I wish everyone could have that same support. If people say bad things about you, you can give your parents a call.
But hearing comments Justin's family made — oh my gosh. As we consider the way in which Clough treated Fashanu at Forest, Rogers says: Obviously they're not homophobic but they'll say: What are you talking about?
Does it make a difference, if you're gay or straight, as to how you pass the ball? Are you on drugs?

When you decide that you want to play, you probably don't want to be too abrupt where you just tell your significant other that you want to play dirty dares right at that moment out of nowhere. Fake it for 10 seconds.
