Actor Eric Stonestreet predicts that one day, it's not going to take an act of courage for an openly gay person to play in the NFL."It's going to be considered common. It's not going to feel taboo, and people are not going to feel they need to be closeted or keep their sexuality a secret because of other people's opinions," Stonestreet told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
The "Modern Family" star, who plays a gay man on the popular ABC show, said, "Times are changing and Jason Collins, Michael Sam and those guys who have come out are most definitely having an impact with society."Sam came out as gay before this year's NFL draft. He was drafted in the seventh round by the St. Louis Rams. Collins, who played basketball for the Brooklyn Nets last season, is the first openly gay athlete to play in a professional league in North America.

They put countless hours in the gyms and on the field, played hundreds, perhaps thousands of games from little league to college to the professional ranks. They sacrificed so much of their lives and given so much of themselves to reach the highest level of their respective games. So, Inquring Minds wants to know why professional athletes turn to criminal behavior once they have made it?
Ray Rice was suspended for abusing his now wife. He held a press conference to apologize to the nation and tell everyone why he was wrong. Of course that's society's way of cleaning up an image, but is it really necessary to do? Should athletes apologize to the media? I understand that there's a need to apologize to the victim, family, friends, team, and even the fans. But, why do guys like Skip Bayless get so bent out of shape?
Hearing guys on ESPN talking about "I'll never forgive him" is almost laughable. Why should the player care what a media mouth thinks?
We'll discuss that, anything we noticed about our teams in the first weekend of football, the Jersey Number Countdown to Kickoff (#28 down to #22), and more as Zone Coverage continues on the Talk 2 Q Radio Show!

ATHLETES, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, AND ARE WE TAKING IT SERIOUSLY?
We’ve all seen the headlines- Ray Rice gets two game suspension for knocking his fiancé unconscious and dragging her off a casino elevator. Joe Mixon under investigation for punching a woman in the face. One of the Steubenville high school students convicted of rape is back on the football field. The news reports go on and on with allegations and prosecutions of athletes at all levels for violence against women. And what are we doing about it? The NFL gives a slap on the hand to Rice (who could have been suspended for numerous games if he had smoked a joint). Sports fans still line up for autographs, and the victims are disparaged for “ruining” the athlete’s life. Have we really slipped down the rabbit hole when it comes to seriously dealing with violent athletes?
So let’s talk about it. Brian O’Connor, Director of Public Education Campaigns and Programs for Futures Without Violence where he crafts national and international violence prevention campaigns for a variety of audiences. He’s former marketer of global brands such as Gatorade and Kodak, and reporter for the Village Voice. His work engaging men inspires them to model positive masculinity and teach boys that violence never equals strength. Brian holds a master's from Columbia University and is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists. He is the former president of the board of Root Division, an arts education non-profit based in San Francisco where he lives.
