Whoever it is, why don't they just come out now? Waiting for a specific day will just create more drama than if he'd just got it over quickly and quietly with would it not?
It may affect England's world cup chances - so even the Sun won't print it

There isn't a chance in hell of England winning the world cup anyway.

It'd be just typical of the Sun wouldn't it though?

They always think England are going to win and need a scapegoat for when they don't...it's been Rooney, Beckham, referees, Ronaldo. They'd most definitely want a scapegoat for when England are inevitably crap. I can see it now "They were all put off by someones sexuality/it distracted the teams focus and the press attention"

That he is. I don't know a single person who hadn't already heard he was gay by the time he officially came out, but I've never heard a bad word about him before or since.

Gay people who publically beard and create fake hetero lifestyles for the public will never come out. It will be in their contract with their PR guru that they can't as the PR company's reputation would be in absolute tatters otherwise.

Thinking someone of the profile of Beckham (or in other walks of life, Tom Cruise or John Travolta) might come out one day is crazy

agree totally.
very depressing a tweet about this could cause not only a mini media frenzy but various footballers to get on Twitter and let everyone know how heterosexual they are.
Before Certain Events at a paper caused sleazy stories to dryup there wasn't a weekend when the sexual shenanigans of one of this lot wasn't making front page.
It almost seemed like a badge of Honour.

Yes the sun denied it and 5 minutes after the rumour started people pointed out the twitter account posting it was all lies

Someone started a thread and suddenly it was 100% happening and people were speculating

News to me.

I remember when Marc Overmars joined Arsenal, one of the tabloids claimed he was having an affair with a Dutch popstar.

Then there was that rumour of a Premiership footballer seeing Will Young.

There have been rumours for years about DB.
No there hasn't! Honestly, this is a new one he had an affair with a woman and there are rumours of more of those.

Honestly, has anyone not had "gay rumours" according to DS. All as baseless as someone on these boards saying someone is gay counting as legitimate. My favourite was the one about Cheryl cole on Ashley. So according to one particularly deluded poster gay men cheat on their wives with WOMEN

I'll be flabbergasted if the other ex-Arsenal European (think Scandinavian) footballer is straight. He's got to be gay.

Does it really matter these days if a footballer is gay? The majority of people in the UK don't care anymore. It is organisations like Stonewall that make out people are anti gay still so they can get more money. Looking at their advertising on the London Underground they are making out that we are in the 70s and 80s when people weren't all accepting of homosexuality. Although people who are from African or middle eastern ancestry who are still mostly anti gay and I think that might be who they were aiming it at but they would be accused of being racist if they made it clear they were aiming it at them.

I don't think it would bother anyone if it was. Gay rights people would be making out as if it changes everything but it doesn't. They seem to still be in the 80s when gay rights was an anti establishment thing and they're trying to be controversial just like interracial relationships before them.

Rags would have a field day and people would care very much. One only has to look at how threads at DS exploded when Tom Daley came out. It's still a very big thing.

Who or what is rags? I've not heard of rags

I don't think Tom Daley coming out was a big thing, it was more that people making out it was going to be a big thing and it would change everything but I don't think it has. I think more people were concerned that his boyfriend is 20 years older than him.

After a sexuality has been oppressed it goes through a stage of people making out they're extremely supportive for them. If you look back to interracial relationships they were oppressed and it was illegal, there was a stage where they were frowned upon, a stage people were really supportive and people who question it are accused of being racist and now where no one batters an eyelid. Currently homosexuality is in the stage where people are extremely supportive of it.

I can't believe people care about this sort of shite...

If they found one with an IQ above 50 then that would be news!

I agree, like I said we are in the stage where some people feel they need to over compensate for homosexuals being oppressed. Those people make out it's some sort of amazing thing when really all what is happening is someone is announcing what their sexual orientation is.

I doubt it would effect the PR company it's not like they were coming out as being sexually attracted to children because that's currently in the stage where it's oppressed and illegal or if they were sexually attracted to animals, corpses or various other sexualities that don't exist yet in our society. It might stop the actors getting specific rolls like being the heart throb for women but that didn't nesacerilly happen with pop stars who have come out.

Most of the public don't even know what bearding is. If they see a relationship in the papers, they assume it's real

PR companies don't want this to change. They can make fortune's out of it.

What is bearding? I don't see why people are making a big thing about people announcing they have a socially acceptable sexuality.
