Was a former Giants lineman denied access to the Super Bowl media center, game and parties because he is gay and HIV positive?
The NFL says his sexual orientation and health status have nothing to do with it. Uh huh.
Simmons, who played for the Giants from 1979-81 and Redskins in 1983, disclosed that he is gay in 1992. He was the first former NFL player to come out as HIV positive 10 years later. He now works as a supervisor at a halfway house in Long Island.
