Also, I'll mention this again because apparently its a thing to hold Sam in ill contempt for contemplating a reality show while playing football, why is it wrong for him but not for any of the other players getting shows? Are you going to condemn entire teams for participating in hard knocks? I could have sworn "distractions" was plural as well. The argument that his focus isn't on football two weeks after the draft because he contemplated a show is beyond egregious.
What has he changed. You throw around the phrase like something has come out of this. It's today's news and forgotten about once the season kicks in.

you know, unless you're a high school football player who happens to be gay. now maybe you feel a little less ****** about yourself everyday because there's someone else in sports like you.

but yeah, nothing ever matters at all. jackie robinson? ******* joke. jesse owens during the '36 olympics? why the **** does anyone still remember his name, anyways? what an idiotic opinion.

I think the main thing we can take away from this story is that if it doesn't make a difference to you it doesn't make a difference to anyone.

Well, at least it's rather easy to spot someone's political alliance in this thread. Just throwing that out there. As an aside, Michael Sam's boyfriend is pretty hot.

Well put. Especially about the marginalization of kids that are different. Small differences weigh on a kid (weird, shy, small physical defect, etc...) let alone things like race and sexuality. Thankfully we've matured quite a bit as a society wrt race (a long ways to go, but we are doing as good, if not better than any society on the planet), but we have a ways to go with sexuality.

to suggest those examples and indirectly compare it to this is a reach. Has he caused athletes to come out, or college athletes. Not nearly as memorable

What impact has Michael Sam done other than promote himself. This has not changed the landscape of the game or made it okay, especially when the media hyped you to be a 2nd day prospect and you went in the 7th round. That's how it would be looked upon. It confirmed that a percentage of fans aren't okay with it when some believe the league forced the Rams to take him.

Just accept that in the real world, it will ALWAYS exist.

yes, in the like, 2 months since he came out and was drafted. brilliant. do you spend any time at all thinking before speaking, or is it just verbal vomit and an intense desire to press submit as quickly as possible that leads you to say things like that, as if you actually have serious conviction in them?

and i'm not the one reaching. i'm giving you direct examples of exactly what you're saying doesn't make any difference. it's not my fault they make you look bad.

it confirmed nothing about fans. that's the stupidest thing you've said in a long string of stupid things. and again, what kind of impact, specifically, did you expect it to have during the offseason? you're basically saying, "holy ****, racism didn't go away the minute martin luther king said 'i have a dream' so cleary it had no impact". i mean, seriously, read what you're writing before posting it. it'll save a lot of undue embarrassment.

yup, we should never try to make progress, or do anything to make the world better, because some fuckwit somewhere will still hate someone. brilliant thoughts, bro, brilliant.

I have nothing against the guy, nor his preference, but just as you can believe he is the change the NFL needs, I can believe that it won't change a thing. Just like Collins was the change the NBA needed.

That's what it'll be like when it's really not an issue anymore, but that won't happen until we kill off 98% of our species and all that's left are the humans capable of putting some thought into their actions/opinions/behaviors.

Oh **** you, there's a lot of people who are politically conservative who are gay, gay-friendly, or just friends with plenty gay people. I'm not the only one. Just cause republicans and the tea-party they took over make us look like ass holes doesn't mean conservatives are any more homogenous than liberals.

How do you know that? Maybe a bunch of kids who were going to quit football because being a gay college athlete was too much for them to deal with and are now going to stick with the sport? That's a huge change that you'll never be able to identify unless these players someday come out and say Michael Sam got them to stay in the game.

Plus it's been how many weeks since he got drafted? Now how long was it before the second black player played in the MLB?

Truth. But I also think the standardized political paradigms are a farcical construct designed to keep us at roughly a 50/50 ratio and divided on relatively minor issues whilst the men behind the curtain mostly do whatever they want.

Not to mention how the "differences" that get played up around election time never seem to play out in actual policy as Obama-care is just an extension of Bush's prescription drug act, Barry's bailouts were just bigger versions of Bush's TARP, how Democratic presidents have lead more wars in the past century than their republican counterparts, and how beholden both parties are to the same powers.
