Re "49ers' defender not a fan of gays" (Sports, Jan. 31): Who's kidding who? Are we to believe that another uneducated athlete who can barely string two words together in "expressing" his position on gays in sports actually prepared and delivered the neatly written obligatory apology?
We all know that, like most professional sports teams, there is a damage control department in the 49ers organization at the ready to make the best of a bad situation. Perhaps the media should just stick to interviewing the athletes about the game at hand and leave social mores and politics out of the mix.
