Michael Irvin: Response mostly positive

By ESPNDallas.com

Cowboys Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin revealed the reason behind his recent interview to Out Magazine in support of gay rights. Here's what he told Lynn Hoppes of ESPN's Page 2:

“I’ve been wanting to talk about this for years. I don’t know if it’s because I’m older or because I’m at peace with myself. I think everyone should be treated equally. A lot of people have called and emailed after seeing the story and talked about how they have friends in the same situation. Most of the response has been very positive.”
