LA Galaxy winger Robbie Rogers says
teammates turn to him for fashion advice.
The 26-year-old Rogers debuted earlier
this year with the LA Galaxy after coming out gay and announcing his
retirement from soccer.
In speaking with ABC's This Week,
Rogers, who previously said that his greatest coming out fear was the
locker room, was asked how his teammates have reacted.
“So, any awkward moments in the
locker room?” David Wright asked.
“For the most part no,” Rogers
answered. “Especially in our locker room, the guys are very
respectful and, you know, we make jokes ...”
“What kind of jokes?”
“I'm the first person they come to
for like fashion advice. And I'm just like, 'Come on. Are you
serious?'” the always dapper Rogers replied.
Rogers added that Philip Anschutz, the
billionaire who owns LA Galaxy and helped fund Colorado's Amendment
2, which prohibited municipalities from enacting anti-discrimination
laws based on sexual orientation, has not said a word to him.
“No conversations at all,” Rogers
said. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit
