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
