Athletes have been called again and again to comment on gay marriage. Athlete Ally is a very public movement, and include tennis players like Rennae Stubbs, Andy Roddick, and Mardy Fish. The week of the superbowl in the US there was a lot of discussion of athletes supporting gay marriage and reporters were not barred from asking those questions.

The Jason Collins story being front page news for Sports Illustrated?

Athletes in this age, especially with twitter, are expected to comment semi-intelligently on the issues of the day. They have a huge influence, even more than politicians and civil servants, on how the public responds. Homosexuality wasn't part of that dicussion in the US for a while, but it is increasingly becoming one. And I hope Maria does what she thinks is right, and not whats best for her brand.
Anthony having an intelligent conversation with him is not going to happen he's just here to get attention
