Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jun 23, 2021 1:31 pm

In the 24 hours after Carl Nassib became the first active NFL player to come out as gay, the Las Vegas Raiders defensive end\'s jersey has been the top-selling item across the league, per Fanatics.

Nassib, 28, made the announcement Monday in a video posted to Instagram.

Fanatics, the NFL\'s official e-commerce partner, said Nassib has had the top-selling NFL jersey Monday and Tuesday across the company\'s network of online stores.

Glad this guy's announcement has been met with more positive than negative (public) reaction. Eventually, we'll get to the point as a society that news like this will be met with a collective shrug. :dontknow:


And I think that's a good thing.

Credit and kudos to him for being willing to put himself out there during his playing days.
