There's a reason these players go to extraordinary lengths to keep that quiet... gay jokes in the locker room are the norm. Obviously that still goes on, as the ever-present social networks and twitterverse proved.
And I'm not taking sides on the issue, doesn't affect me either way; but I do recognize that the Mizzou players handled it much differently than has been the custom.
Ok, yeah I see your point now. I guess to me an award for sportsmanship should be more of a team that goes above and beyond, rather than solely behaving in a manner that you're expected to but I definitely see where you are coming from.
