Isn't what he did by coming out at this time a chess move? A mediocre player, most have not heard of, is close to being let go. He jumps up and comes out making the owners look like bad guys if they terminate him now. So the move is akin to using the race card. "I'm being fired because I'm gay!" Obeyme calling him upsets me more...follow the money on both of them, the player saves his job and the president is looking for support/money/votes etc...transparency at it's finest.
