Randy Moss raised some eyebrows earlier in the week when he decided to come out and call himself the greatest receiver to ever play the game. The statement may have been arrogant, but it certainly wasn’t the dumbest thing a San Francisco 49ers player has said all week. Leave that to cornerback Chris Culliver, who made incredibly insensitive homophobic remarks during a media day interview on Tuesday. Culliver later apologized after he was ripped to shreds by media outlets, fans and many of his fellow players. On Thursday, Moss shared his thoughts on the topic. “You see guys, you sometimes wonder but it’s not anyone’s job to call them out,” he said according to CNN’s Rachel Nichols. “I really believe we should be able to look beyond that. It’s 2013.” Moss was then asked if he believed an openly gay high school recruit would be treated the same way other straight college prospects are. “I don’t think we’re ready to move past that, but we should be,” he said. “We need to be able to move on and accept it.” It’s a shame that Culliver’s boneheaded remarks have made this such a major topic of discussion just days before the Niners will be playing for a championship, but Moss handled himself well. In the year 2013, these should be issues we can move past. As we know, they are not. The only thing more disappointing than homophobia is a professional athlete using his influence to perpetuate it.
