NHL Player Says If He Wanted To Support The Gays He'd Be Playing Soccer

quote:



PHILADELPHIA, PA — NHL star Ivan Provorov declined to participate in the Philadelphia Flyers' Pride Night or wear a rainbow-colored jersey, saying if he wanted to support the gay agenda he would have played soccer instead of hockey.

"Listen, man, I got nothing against the gays," said Provorov to a crowd of outraged sports writers as the rest of his team pranced across the ice gracefully in their colorful outfits. "But I ain't wearing that thing. Let's leave all that gay stuff in soccer where it belongs. Also, I believe in God and stuff, and I don't want to disobey him, so there's that."

The sports world expressed unbridled outrage at the decision. "The lives of LGBTQ+ people are in danger unless everyone on earth affirms their sex lives by wearing the special uniform and saluting the special flag," said Sports Illustrated writer Gloop Schnixen (they/them) in an op-ed. "If Provorov refuses to show unquestioning fealty to our belief system, he is a fascist and must be punched until he complies."

Representatives for Major League Soccer confirmed that they celebrate Pride Night every night, and invited anyone who felt unwelcome in the NHL to attend one of their soccer games for free. So far, none have accepted the invite.

At publishing time, the NHL courted more controversy after several players refused to wear sparkly princess dresses on Trans-Awareness Night.

For how heavy handed the bee is, this is actually a funny sentence

How many gays care about hockey? Sports need to stop having pride nights. Players shouldn't be forced to wear pride outfits or racism patches

That's some well done satire right there. Close enough to be believable.

I like to think this is a metaphor for all the feminist that don't watch the WNBA

This is the kind of shite that will turn the people who are ambivalent to the gays... These idiots will push straight people against them.

Have to admit, knowing US Soccer and the MLS, I wouldnt be surprised if this was actually a true statement made by them.

European soccer is full of racist and a-holes, so it would be less believable if they used them.

What is funny about that is if you've ever been around professional soccer players, at least in Europe, they are probably the poster boys for hetero.


Gay guys would not last long on a European club.....like maybe 20 minutes.

As a huge soccer fan who hates hockey, that's pretty hilarious.

ETA: Man, didn't see it was The Bee, that's too bad. That guy would have been my new favorite athlete.
