Artie Lange on Chris Culliver Comments: The Norm in the NFL

by at . Comments

The past seven days have not been a great week for Chris Culliver.

The 49ers cornerback made all the wrong kinds of headlines when he came out against having a gay teammate, and then he was burned on a 56-yard touchdown pass by Jacoby Jones in the Super Bowl Sunday.

But while Artie Lange - the man who interviewed Culliver - says he hopes the player "learns" from his experience, he also tells TMZ that (unfortunately) "what Culliver said reflects what 99% of the league thinks."

What will bring professional athletes around? How will homosexual tolerance grow in the NFL?

"What's gonna have to happen is a real star player ... a Jackie Robinson type ... a real star player is gonna have to come out WHILE HE'S PLAYING," Lange says. "And other people will follow."

Culliver, meanwhile, will undergo sensitivity training with an LGBT organization, according to the 49ers.
