"We just felt the time was right," said team owner Clark Hunt. "American society has thankfully become more open to gays, but there is still pushback in sports. It is our hope that this announcement can open dialogue in sports and encourage other teams and players to come forward."
The franchise says it has known they are gay for years.
"Back in the mid-60s or so we when we were only a few years old we started having conflicting feelings about the Raiders," said former quarterback Len Dawson. "But I'm not sure we really even knew what gay was back then. And if we did, it wouldn't have been accepted in a state like Missouri."

"But I think people thought that if a team would do it, it would be some soccer team from the coasts. But we're an NFL team, we're tough, we're macho, we're from the Midwest and we are very, and proudly, gay."
