Another sportsman on our side. 🙂
The climate around the 2014 Sochi Olympics is unique. With the host nation taking an extreme approach to anti-gay legislation, athletes participating in the games have come into focus for their thoughts on the matter. Considering the NHL Players’ Association’s intimate relationship with the You Can Play Project — an organization that advocates equal rights regardless of sexual orientation — some players have been put in a difficult position.
Many have chosen to provide no comment as a strategic approach to avoid distraction. Some of the more prominent players have voiced their opinions or, at the very least, insinuated them.
