Chris Culliver.. Did It Ever Occur To You...

Derek Moore and I actually talked about this on Monday, when the Kwame Harris story broke.  Someone is bound to ask 49er players about gays in the locker room.  We figured, as long as you’re smart, use good judgement and be a good human being… things would be fine.  We were wrong.  As for Chris Culliver, whose anti-gay comments have brought a 10,000 pound distraction that no team wants, what the hell were you thinking?  The moment Artie Lange asked you “how many white women  you plan to sleep with this week?”… did it occur to you for a moment, that this might not end well?  You can believe whatever you want, but your insensitive comments, during the biggest football week in America…. brought shame to your team, to Jim Harbaugh, Jed York, your teammates and to your fan base.  I hope your apology is sincere.  Garrison Hearst, one of the greatest running backs to ever wear a 49ers uniform, made similar anti-gay comments once.  That was TEN years ago, and he’s still remembered for it.
