Michael Sam, draft prospect, admits he's gay

Recommended Posts

I was not trying to be sarcastic with my original question.  Was really wondering whether it was real....or someone faking something to get their 15 min of fame.

 

basically was that, though not the usual culprit.

I could not imagine anyone ever writing something like that and returning it.....but then again, there are a lot of idiots out there.

I can.  Someone in my mother's congregation - in Vermont - had something similar occur a few years back.

The problem is you need help. Why is the whole freedom subject keep been brought up? No one is stopping this guy to live the way he wants to. BTW I never know any person to say anything about their sexual preference on TV or in the newpapers and every where else. I don't go telling the whole nation I'm having sex with a women or having to tell them I'm straight. Bottomline a lot of this is for attention more then anything. Call it what you want. That is the way I see it. I don't care if he is gay or she is gay or if Obama is gay. I just don't want to keep hearing or reading about people sex life. Whether they sleep with a person other gender or their gender. But sure heck don't want to hear about. Plain and simple. Who you sleep with has nothing to do with you freedom. Just a like a lot of groups in the world. The whine and cry and try to get attention in the media to get notice. No one really cares whether he gay or not. His job is simply to come out on Sunday and win games. What you do in your personal life is your business I don't want to know.

Actually millions of people care. People like you who say no one wants to hear about it only say that because you just quietly want it to go away instead of facing it head on. Face the facts. Times are changing and for the first time in a long time in this country people of different sexual orientation don't have to have the fear of getting beat up walking down the street if they were gay. They don't have to worry about being thrown out of the military if someone outs them. Millions of people want to hear what this Sam kid has to say because he isn't afraid of what people like you will think about him. And sadly he will go to nfl home and away games and get heckled and have the nastiest things you can think of being hurled at him and he doesn't care because he is now free to be himself finally.

Get with the times. People like you are just going to have to come to grips that these people have rights to and you can't keep ignoring them

The NFL draft — the league’s Radio City-staged, nationally televised, endlessly hyped off-season spectacle — opens Thursday night, and for the first time an openly gay player will be waiting for a phone call.
 
But it could be a long wait for Michael Sam, the University of Missouri defender and all-American who came out in February. Draft analysts say he might not be selected until the last picks are made on Saturday — and perhaps not at all.
 
If that happens, Sam could still sign with a team as an undrafted free agent and play on Sundays this fall. But it would pose a public-relations problem for the NFL, the most profitable league in America, which has never had an openly gay player.
 
“For them not to select him would be very problematic,” said Cyd Zeigler, the founder of OutSports.com, which published an insider account of Sam’s coming out three months ago. Fairly or not, he said, “If he isn’t selected, it’s a public black eye on the league.”

 

 

Maybe...or maybe he just isn't talented enough.

 

But I bet he gets picked up though

I never heard him as a third rounder, where did you hear that?

 

On multiple draft sites, the day I heard about him. Many were even saying second round.

 

He was only known as the SEC DPOtY at that time (the last seven years they have been taken in the first round). But after that he was under the microscope, the criticisms of his "on the field play" came flooding in. In reality it was damage control if this dude dropped for no reason other than his orientation.

 

Not to mention this has already happened to Kerry Rhodes, the dude was ranked as the 4th best FS the year before he got blacklisted for the mere accusation that he was gay.

I really did not know the guy and when I first heard about him, I heard 5-7.

 

Then, when I saw his measurables and combine, I went to round 7

 

He is the size of a 34 OLB, but not nearly fast enough to play the position.  He is too small too play the 43 DE.

 

That is what I base it on, not sure about the NFL

7th after all. Charity pick so he can be cut later and kicked out of the league and everyone won't be surprised.

Hope like hell he makes the roster!
