Asking an NFL prospect about his sexuality? Really? In 2018?

You know it’s almost springtime in the NFL because pre-draft stupidity — if not outright bigotry — is blooming again. Another defiant team asked another promising prospect about his sexual preference during the scouting combine, and it has led to another round of national criticism and another admonishing league statement. When the controversy settles, the NFL will talk about lessons learned and issues discussed and policies reinforced, only to watch another embarrassing team ask another inappropriate question in a year or two and make claims of discrimination sprout anew.

It’s a semiannual concern now. Soon, the NFL will have to put the event on its calendar: March 1-April 1, open period for teams to show how backward and aloof the league can be. This is the third time in five years that a player has gone public with an example of a team defying league policies and, in some cases, federal and state equal employment opportunity laws to ask a sexuality question. This time, the bewildered interviewee was former LSU running back Derrius Guice, who is one of the top players at his position in the 2018 draft class.
