@LandoGriffin: It was a VERY local story! Either McLlwain or Taberacci (a good goalie) was the main part of the deal, but he refused to be trades without Cunneyworth! lolz!

Given Toronto Maple Leaf's long history of child sex abuse by their homosexual staff (Team? Arena? Both?)? It's no wonder THEY don't talk about it... even though it was "common knowledge" in Toronto's gay community. The "Kids in the Hall" made many references to it...

Anyhow, a few months after that? They broke up! Cunneyworth started playing badly, it was a whole NEW sort of "locker-room distraction" (fighting ex-lovers) and he got traded

Winnipeg is a VERY accepting place! We didn't care one bit. I had several friends who worked at the arena around that time who told me of this amusing story.

Good for him but is it really headline news?

5Cats - I googled "Cunneyworth gay" to see if any mention of the "locker room distraction" is on the internet, and all I found was criticism by Montreal fans for hiring him as coach in 2011 despite that he doesn't speak French. Are you sure he has admitted being gay? Because I'd think there would be a mention somewhere, such as in the articles speculating that John Madden is the anonymous gay NHL player that has discussed the issue without identifying himself.

President Obama phoned him. Good to know Obama has solved all the world's problems and has so much free time... to go golfing... and call homosexuals... and take photo ops of "private moments"...

@LandoGriffin: Not "out of the closet" but yeah, openly gay. Randy Cunneyworth and the other guy we got from Toronto with him? Dave McLlwain I think. They were boyfriends. It was called a "locker room distraction" back then

In baseball, Dave Stewart dated a "shemale" (pre-op) does that count as openly gay?

There's been plenty of gay hockey players... I guess that shows how many Americans watch hockey..


Openly gay while actively playing in the NHL? Who was that?

Good on Jason Collins. For all those of you saying it is not a big deal, there has NEVER been an openly gay active player on a major U.S. team sport. NEVER. Until now. And, when the world doesn't end, hopefully all the gay bashers will realize what we all know already; that it really isn't a big deal.

As long as he can average me 18 points and 9 boards, I could care less who he "drives the lane and takes it to the basket" to.

Good for him, and for those who say they don't care- good for you too. No one should care, but sadly, many do, so the more visible gay and trans people out there the more normal it will seem- and easier for those kids who have a hard time.

"I'm heterosexual!" See? ...no one gives a crap. Yet I'm supposed to be all wowed and awe-inspired at how courageous, brave, and heroic this announcement is? Puuhhhlllease! This doesn't even break the top one billion. Just so you know gay people, most of the rest of us don't give two craps if you're gay or not. Just letting you know.

Good for him. I don't watch Basketball, but believe this is a good first step in major sports.
