49ers tackled by another LGBT issue

SAN FRANCISCO

The "It Gets Better" project is aimed at combating the bullying of LGBT youth. Friday, the group's founder removed the Super Bowl team's video from its website.

The move comes after USA Today reported that linebacker, Ahmad Brooks, and nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga say they didn't know the video they took part in last summer supported gay rights of teens.

The report says the two players first denied making the video and then said they thought it was only to prevent bullying in general.
