UK Soccer Star Matt Jarvis: “There’d Be Support Everywhere” For Gay Players

matt jarvisIt’s everyday life. It’s not something that’s going to be a shock. I’m sure there are many footballers who are gay, but when they decide to actually come out and say it, it is a different story. It’s one that I’m sure they’ve thought about many times. But it’s a hard thing for them to do…

There’d be support everywhere within the football community, whether it be players, fans or within the PFA [Professional Footballers’ Association]. There would definitely be groups of people who would be supportive and help them through it.”

West Ham United winger Matt Jarvis, who is straight, saying it’s time for a professional footballer to come out of the closet, in Attitude

    Not another straight player saying he’s got gay friends or expressing sympathy to gay players that can’t come out!! I’m over it. I am sick and tired of magazines that use straight guys to express sympathy for us. It’s insulting and patronizing.

    Most of the time, these guys aren’t even totally straight. And yet they are advertised as straight for political reasons by the magazines. Attitude magazine sucks.

    @Brian: Didn’t we already have this chat before when I gave your actual name and address out in another thread.

    Your trolling is neither clever, subtle, funny or wanted.

    You are bickering about the gay version of The Sun page three.

    @d24: no, the Sun girls at least are not afraid to say they like boys
