I don't see what's so different. You don't think a religious player could be recorded saying all gay people are subhuman and should burn in hell?
Or players making racist comments about Jeremy Lin? You know that's happened....
Or say during a lockout an owner talking negatively about what basketball players would be doing without the NBA?
