Yes, its not his job to be commenting on such issues, his job is to play footy, and nothing else.

This is another thing I wanted to bring up. Why is he viewed as Homophobic because he suggested players should keep their sexual orientation to themselves? I do realise there are Homophobes that will find any convenient excuse to promote their dislike of homosexuality. The thing is his comments were not exactly hateful and he was not calling for any acts of violence upon gay players.
If people's comments get called "homophobic" just because they talk about a minority, then where does the line get drawn? Is one Homophobic for saying they do not want Gay Parades in their neighbourhood? Is one Homophobic for saying they don't want billboards promoting Homosexuality near their homes?
