Footballer is gay, retires

Robbie Rogers was just a normal, everyday 25 year old footballer....... with a dark secret!  Secretly he loves men and this is why he has retired from the sport.  Because that makes total sense

Rogers was released by Leeds in January after a loan spell at the mighty Stevenage and clearly his love of other dudes was too much to continue struggling to be shit at football.  Although he has 18 caps for America, his career hasn't exactly been on fire and he wrote this letter on his website:
"I always thought I could hide this secret. Football was my escape, my purpose, my identity," said Rogers.
"Now is my time to step away. It's time to discover myself away from football."
He said a whole bunch of other stuff about being gay and how he hopes his 'Creator' has some sort of plan for him, which is very nice.  I'm glad that he believes in an all powerful God that made him so scared of his own sexuality that he has to run away to be able to feel normal.  That sounds like a nice thing to have faith in.
