It's still interesting that elite players have to wait to "come out" after they retire. One would think that especially now it really isn't a huge issue anymore. I was an elite sportsman many years ago. I came out when I was 18 . I am 50 now.I was critised back then but I said that my performance is what mattered on the field plus I was a team player. I didn't approach anyone as it was the sport that mattered not my sexual preference. All the players knew too. They accepted me for who I was both on the field and off. I was more surpised many years later meeting up with players who were gay and I didn't know. Such is life.
