Gay Players...Appreciated or Unwelcome?

Had this through this morning from theacademic:

I am carrying out an anonymous survey on fans' views towards gay football players.

This is in response to the Premier League dropping a campaign on this issue and Max Clifford claiming that 'football is steeped in homophobia'.

We want to assess how fans feel about this. Our pilot data was published in The Observer on Sunday and discussed again on The Nolan show on Radio 5Live on Sunday evening and BBC Radio Leeds and Stoke this week.

The address is: and the site is being managed by Staffordshire University.

If you could keep the article comments respectful it would be appreciated!!! Now what image do I use?!

As he is stood next to a carboard cut out of a question mark to symbolise the fact no one knows who is homosexual in football as the surve suggests..... maybe?
