If, in Mike Francesa’s words, a “normal, regular NFL player” wouldn’t be burdening him and his vast listenership with thorny topics like sexuality.  Of course, most “normal, regular” NFL hopefuls don’t have scouts asking questions like, “does he have a girlfriend?” or “why not?” Superstars aside, they don’t have to worry about TMZ going public with information about who they may or may not be seeing. And they certainly don’t have to worry about their career prospects being intertwined with something as part and parcel to their existence as Francesa’s sexuality is to his (and yes, you can presume he has one).
