    What's the lead story on ESPN? Michael Sam made a tackle! (and registered a QB hit!)

    I didn't have a problem with them showing him kissing his boyfriend when he was drafted. I thought that was fine. The draft is a spectacle. But this bothered me. We are now in the "football" part of the football season. Michael Sam is a 3rd string DE on the St. Louis Rams. He shouldn't be 90% of the Saints-Rams highlight, and he definitely shouldn't be the lead story when there's actual news to report. Unless he's making highlight worthy plays or someone says something ignorant to the press, we shouldn't be hearing much of anything about Michael Sam until we find out if he's made the team or not.
    If Michael Sam made a tackle and the Rams cut him, they are homophobic. I would expect Goodell to have an investigation and Mike Lupica, who is still talking about Ray Rice, would have a topic to pontificate on for the entire football season.

    Ha ha ha! And it's not even about race.
    You're right, that's probably where it's heading...more goodies in store which is exactly what goes on in society.

    Meanwhile, this thread will get to 20 pages with heated debates and will eventually get locked when it gets out of hand. But yeah, you're right op, no one cares. ............

    What does Gholston, a top 5 pick, have to do with it? If Sam wasn't gay, if he was drafted where he was and never made a tackle you would never know.

    That's the point

    In fairness, you compared this to racism. Or to how those effected by racism felt. We're not talking about racism, we're talking to the point that if Sam wasn't gay ESPN never, ever would have shown his tackle or talked about it.

    Maybe that's what you as an individual are talking about, but that's not what many are talking about. Most don't wanna hear about gays period.

    That's what you see, and hear, but as always the wack jobs are the loudest on both sides of the aisle.

    The only fact that's been settled here is that no one wants your gayness shoved anywhere.

    Rams better pray Sam turns out to be a good player.
    If he does not they can't win. He stinks and they cut him - they're homophobes. He stinks and they keep him - they're afraid to cut him.
