I read an interesting article in Four Four Two magazine a couple of weeks back about homophobia and racism in the beautiful game today, particularly in Russia, and Thomas Hitzlsberger only daring to come out after he had finished his playing career. If 'brave' Hitzlsberger felt so strongly about his sexuality then why didn't he come out whilst he was still playing seeing how, supposedly, the game has changed so much since the infamous days of the so called Three Degrees and Justin Fashanu for example:
How brave are you Rhodesly? Why haven't you come out? I mean it's pretty much common knowledge but none of us could care less.
