I was out and about doing stuff, so I caught this stand-up post by Robbie Rogers late. This type of news doesn't really faze me or make a difference in my view of a person when it happens, but I'm very happy for him that he can simply be himself now. Hopefully, his departure from soccer is temporary and way more about becoming comfortable being who he is than any fear of shabby treatment inside the game.
I also look forward to the day that stuff like this isn't seen as a big deal. And thanks to Robbie, I think we're just a bit closer to that time than we were yesterday,
