NYUSSP Chair Arthur Miller and Directors Arthur Caplan and Lee Igel examine probes of sexual orientation specifically arising from the NFL Combine and University of Colorado player Nick Kasa. How does this issue play in to society as whole. They ask:

Would it make a difference if the player was a projected first-round pick like Te’o or a likely late-round pick like Kasa? Would teams find it easier to manage issues that arise around an athlete who is openly gay than one who isn’t?”
