Default Michael Sam Admits....

http://espn.go.com/espn/otl/story/_/...igers-says-***

Quote:
Michael Sam, an All-American defensive lineman from Missouri Tigers and the Associated Press' SEC Defensive Player of the Year, said that he is *** in interviews with ESPN's "Outside the Lines" and the New York Times on Sunday.

Sam stated publicly what his teammates and coaches at Mizzou have known since August: "I am an openly, proud *** man."

Sam is eligible for the NFL draft in May. Assuming that he is drafted, Sam could become the first openly *** player in the history of the NFL.
I applaud him, wish him the best.

This will get interesting. I'm glad he is comfortable enough to he open about it. This should be interesting to see how his stock if affected and how the game is affected through this. I hope people can be decent about this.

Lets do our best to be adults and not get this locked up.

Yeah, the draft just gained a whole lot of interest. Hopefully, it has no actual bearing on his draft stock, but as we all know, that won't be the case. Someone will want to draft him earlier because they like his talent and want some additional pub, while others won't draft him at all. We'll see.

I'd get a kick out of San Fran drafting him, not just because of the city, but because of Chris Culliver. Lol.

Being nearly 25 years old, this is an issue that wouldn't bother me if I were playing football with him or against, and that also seemed to be the consensus at the Senior Bowl, where many players were already aware of his sexual preference.

Will it have an impact on NFL executives and decision makers? I believe so. There are going to cities and locker rooms that are more equipped to take on a player with this type of story, and some teams may eliminate him from their board just to avoid the "circus".

Good for him. I am with the guy who just posted before me that I hope it doesn't hinder his stock, but we know the NFL's ways. But hey, Missouri coaches and players knew it, it wasn't a distraction and they won the SEC East.

Sound like people give him a mid-round grade, Scott has him the tenth DE, so we should see how the NFL reacts to this.

There's a football team here in New York. They seem to like making moves that get them on the sports page. Even when those moves don't particularly make sense. It's also as though the owner enjoys it when the circus is in town.

I think that team is now one of the frontrunners to draft him.


And I'm not talking about the Giants.

this is a good move on his part because it sounds like this was no secret to anyone who did a little research on him and now he has this out there so the nfl cant blackball him and get away with it

Good for him. I hope the league is supportive and that it opens to the door for anyone who has been - to this point - afraid to come out. Props to Missouri for being so supportive. Very cool story.

I don't think teams really care about that at this point, but I do think he's going to become something of a Tebow figure who creates a PR headache. Still one of the top pass rushers in the draft though and a likely second-day pick.

It only makes sense if the Jets are planning to move him to OLB. He definitely is not going to play the 5 technique.

I'm not buying that he's going to create a circus or anything like that. People are coming out every day. There's going to be months between when he came out publicly and when he starts training camp.

The only reason I don't care for the announcement is because it'll surely take away from the discussions about players and their abilities, which is what the draft is all about. ESPN is having a party tonight - that's for sure.

The best part of the story is that his teammates knew this whole season and had a great one. And at the senior bowl he said a lot already knew.

Plus he had a great year after coming out. All round I'm very happy for him.

Honestly glad this is over, the fact that people are making it a story is just stupid to me. He's not the first in the NFL, there've been many, but this one is going to get publicized, and good for him whatever. People want equality, but want to continue to 'celebrate their differences' It's like, enough already. If you swing that way cool, go about your business and get it done on the field. No one is going to care unless you bring drama to the locker room...

Anyway, sorry to sound negative about it, it's just such a double standard to me. Yes, let's be equal, except celebrate me because I'm different...

I hope this promotes absolutely 0% difference in where he's drafted, don't need him sliding down the draft boards because of this, that'd be terrible.

Anyway, sorry to sound negative about it, it's just such a double standard to me. Yes, let's be equal, except celebrate me because I'm different...
I don't think he's asking to be celebrated. He wanted to be the one to tell people what his sexual orientation was, not some new outlet or reporter, and I can't blame him for that. He's not making a big deal out of it at all. He said he's a football player and he just wants to play football in the interview. It's a story because he's going to be the first openly *** athlete to play in a major American professional sports league.

This isn't in the news and a story on ESPN because people want to celebrate the fact that Michael Sam is ***, it's in the news and on ESPN because it's a historic moment. He's doing something that no one has ever done before. He just wants to be the person to let the world know who he is, not the media.

Edit: Seriously, the word *ay is censored on this forum?
