That's actually my interpretation. I guess I would interpret "for years" would imply more than 4, but that's just my mistake.

Just go to their site...That's what they want to be now..

That doesn't change the fact that both actions are legal. It is not the medias job to make moral judgements. It is the sole purpose of the media to report things that the public would want to know. I believe that the media making value judgments as to what is "appropriate" to report is in and of itself immoral. Note that does not mean they ought not follow applicable laws regarding their reporting. That's not a judgment they have made, but one made by the government they operate in.

This is not illegal, presumably takes place between consenting adults. Would likely be the source of distraction and perhaps ridicule publicly within the team. And seems to me in every way comparable to Homosexuality, especially in states where homosexual marriage is illegal.
