  1. Wish you well with all my heart – and all the others too who may now feel that they can show themselves to the World squarely and without fear

  2. A very brave guy. Thank God for him and hopefully the others to come. Now all we want is some British sport stars to show some balls and follow him.

    well done Jason Collins. you are a leader and a brave one.

  4. HUGE RESPECT MR COLLINS

  5. This has had an ENORMOUS impact in the U.S., almost equal to the repeal of DADT. The feedback for Jason has been overwhelmingly positive and repercussions and results will be felt for some time to come. It’s helpful, too, that Jason doesn’t fit so-called gay “stereotypes”. He’s a very big, very physical player on the court, known for making repeated fouls.

  6. Not sure ‘fouls’ count as a plus- but well done, guy, and hold your head up against the haters,

    Homosexuality is not deserving of the approbation of man.
