The hot and humpy players of the  Toronto Marlies professional hockey team in Toronto, Canada have taken the pledge to stamp out homophobia in hockey.

The entire team signed the  pledge that now hangs on the wall of their locker room at Toronto’s Ricoh Coliseum.

“The Toronto Marlies pledge to support all of our teammates, coaches, and fans – gay or straight,” it reads. “We stand for the idea that athletes should be judged by their character, work ethic, and talent. Not their sexual orientation.”

The pledge, created in conjunction with the You Can Play organization, started by Brian and Patrick Burke, continues with a promise to stamp out homophobic, racist and sexist comments.

Le WOOF!
