The Hype: How will you react to a gay athlete?

NBC on Yahoo Sports

Sources indicate an NFL player wants to announce his homosexuality, but is hesitant because of the unknown reaction he will receive from fans. As more and more people are able to hide behind a keyboard on Facebook and Twitter, the anonymous player has reason to believe he will become a prime target for abuse. It saddens Michelle Beadle that a player still can’t come out for fear of repercussions, but she is hopeful it will happen in our lifetime.

Tune into to 'The Crossover' with Michelle Beadle and Dave Briggs weekdays at 6pm and 10:30 pm ET on the NBC Sports Network (Twitter - @crossover).
