Portland, Seattle, LA, all of them would welcome him with open arms. Actually, the US is a pretty awesome place and I'm pretty sure most teams would welcome him. I would love to see him come back and play here.

I thought that it was a lame knock against Portland.

Great article. I truly believe that if Rogers wants to get back into football, his only true impediment will be his lack of real international talent. He certainly has the ability to play somewhere, but he will never be in high demand and that has nothing to do with the fact that he's gay.

That's kind of what I got from it. It feels like he's making it into a much bigger deal than it really is.

agreed. Didn't anyone really quit on him because of his sexual orientation? I'm pretty sure that if he's getting assists or goals, than that's all coaches are going to look at.

Y'all don't understand the anti-gay culture in professional sports, especially in Europe.

I probably don't but that's what perplexes me.
Aren't there many countries in Europe with gay marriage and cultures that are very open to the LBGT community? I mean heck, Belgium's president is gay. Is the attitude towards gays in sports that different?

Drastically. Actually, drastically is an understatement.

Yup. Especially among football fans. The ones in Marseille (many North African Arabs, which didn't help) were super homophobic.
