Calgary Stampeders receiver Maurice Price was fined an undisclosed amount by the CFL on Tuesday for making inappropriate negative comments on social media towards St. Louis Rams defensive end Michael Sam and openly gay professional athletes.
Price tweeted: "My faith won't allow me to ACCEPT what took place over the weekend! Sorry, NOT sorry! #AdamAndEve #NotAdamAndAdam."
"The CFL will not tolerate discrimination of any kind," said CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon in a statement. "Whether its race, religion or sexual preference, our values are of acceptance and equality. We fully support openly gay athletes in our league, and in the sports community in general."
