    If You Can Play......You Can Play.

    I don't know how people here know of the You Can Play project that was started by Brian Burke, General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs after his son died. It was to fight homophobia in sports.

    It's a really important and good thing, and I'm not surprised it's coming out of Canada. I can't imagine a US sports team coach doing something like this. I hope his effort gets more play, esp here in the US. I imagine athletics have lost a lot of great players over the years because they felt they weren't wanted.

    You need to troll harder, Pete. Say you're positive everyone in the video is gay or something. Then you'll get a lot of views and responses.

    I'm not a hockey fan, but I remember Brendan's tragic death and the way his father 'stepped up to the plate' as it were.

    somehow I pissed you off the other night and I did apologize.

    everyone in the video is not gay but the message that might have eluded you was that because you're gay then you can play in professional sports.

    Brian Burke is a hero here in the gay community for taking his son's death and making it a positive thing.

    I think you're the one who doesn't understand. My comment wasn't about the video (which I watched and enjoyed). It was about how to get a reaction and hits on this website.

    so I should lie and say the players in the video are gay?

    but they're not but supportive of their gay team mates.

    how is that? does it meet your approval?

    Re: If You Can Play......You Can Play.

    You complained about not enough views, and no response. So I suggested a tactic that seem to draw JUBbers like moths to a flame - claim that somebody (or everybody) in the video is gay. "He's totally gay. Look at his eyes. You know he's never spent more than two minutes in any box off the ice." Arguments, accusations, animated gifs, four page thread, and thousands of peepers for your video.

    Or, claim you heard one of the guys in the video is actually a homophobe who said how much he hates queers in a bar you visited...then have us guess which one it is. This combines the hypocrite quotient with an interactive game, and thus guarantees tons of views.

    No, these suggestions aren't serious. But it's the way of the internet. Simple and positive messages get a quiet round of applause, then it's back to the other stuff.

    Re: If You Can Play......You Can Play.

    I think it is a good effort, but I don't think the problem with homophobia in sports is with the players but more with the supporters.
    I am sure that there are many gay professional sportsmen around the world and I am sure their team mates are aware of it, and accept that.
    The problem is that for a gay player would be impossible to play with thousands of supporters chanting homophobic insults, and in Europe soccer supporters are particularly nasty, so coming out is not an option at the moment.

    Re: If You Can Play......You Can Play.

    I think it sets a tone, though. It suggests "we're the ones who will be playing, training, showering, changing with him...and WE don't have a problem with it. So YOU shouldn't either." No, not everyone will see it, and not everyone will take it on board. But I think it's a good move regardless.

    I'm stunned. That Colorado College even HAS a hockey team. My college used to play CC as their first game of the football season, and we perpetually lost. That says a lot more about how crappy our team was than how good their was.
