  1. I know I would, but I’m not sure how the fans as a whole will take this. It’ll probably be split down the middle at best. I think it’s one of those where the players will be more accepting than the fans will be, but in the end the fans aren’t in the locker room, they aren’t on the team, they aren’t on the field so it shouldn’t matter to the fans anyways.

  2. I don’t think its as simple a question – you can’t generalize “fans”. Many of my good friends are gay, but other friends I have would never accept them. This will be all over the map, some fans will be fine, others will not.
