“Well, I’ll tell you what I don’t like. It’s against two NFL games. I got a letter from the NFL saying, ‘This is ridiculous. Why are the debates against—’ ‘cause the NFL doesn’t wanna go against the debates. ‘Cause the debates are gonna be pretty massive, from what I understand, OK?

[Barstool] Rule #1 of becoming the first gay NFL player in the history of the league? Don’t rock a boner at the combine.
