Guice asked dumb question at combine. (Update with statement from NFL)
quote:

Running back Derrius Guice said in a Wednesday night appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio that a team asked him at the Scouting Combine if he likes men. (PFT separately has confirmed via a source with knowledge of the situation that the question was asked.)

What does that have to do with his ability to play football?

Update from NFL:
quote:

The NFL says it is looking into the matter.

"A question such as that is completely inappropriate and wholly contrary to league workplace policies," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said. "The NFL and its clubs are committed to providing equal employment opportunities to all employees in a manner that is consistent with our commitment to diversity and inclusion, state and federal laws and the CBA. We are looking into the matter.

"The league annually reminds clubs of these workplace policies that prohibit personnel from seeking information concerning a player's sexual orientation," McCarthy added.

I just saw this. This is stupid. Why does it even matter? Would his value drop if he is gay? Teams are not even supposed to ask that question.

Can you imagine if some company asked him that during a job interview? IMO that's a ridiculous question. Only thing I can think of is they were trying to rattle him to see how he would handle the rest of the interview.

I mean, that is a job interview. Whatever team employs that questioner will fire him and be lighter in the pocket if a name gets out.

They got Gunny Sergeant Hartman to interrogate him.

I agree it’s stupid

But they probably do it to see how he reacts / answers to weird questions. Who knows?

Regardless, it’s against league policy to inquire about a players sexual orientation.

This is exactly why they ask the question. A perfect example of how not to react is how OBJ reacts during games when guys have supposedly questioned his sexuality. They're asking it to see if it gets under your skin and to what extent if any.
