While Michael Sam has mostly received an outpouring of support since announcing that he is gay, his father is struggling with the news, according to a published report.

Sam revealed to his Missouri teammates he is gay last August, but he didn’t disclose his sexual orientation to his parents until last week. He said Sunday in interviews with ESPN’s “Outside The Lines” and The New York Times that he is gay. […]

Sam Sr., who described himself as “old-school,” told the newspaper the idea of a gay player in the NFL bothers him, even when that person could be his own son. …

And according to Sam’s roommate, TE Eric Waters, some of his teammates were old school too, “talkin s___ behind his back”

Far from the media’s portrayal, alot of people aren’t onboard with this act of “courage”

I’d read that he let his dad know via text.

Headline of the Day Poll

Should homosexuals be allowed in the NFL showers?

Yes. Homophobia should be rejected.
I don’t know.
No. Heterosexuals have rights, too.

You will be seeing more of these athletes coming out as “Gay” so they can be guaranteed a contract..its to gain sympathy, Jason Collins did the same thing, to get attention from the media and to get on a championship winning team..of course ESPN was like “How come no team will take him” Uh, cause he SUCKS

Sam Sr. is just figuring out that he invested all this time to raise an NFL-playing son but he’ll never get to see any of the signing bonus.

He’s also going to catch a lot of flak at the pool hall or wherever it is he goes to hang out with the guys.

Plus, he has the same name so wherever he goes and introduces himself as “Michael Sam” strangers will go “that name sounds familiar... oh, yes! The gay football player! I remember now.”

That dude is just going to hate his life.

Ummm, maybe because he’s not? I am attracted to both men and women, but that doesn’t mean that I am attracted to ALL men and women.
Maybe he likes slender, pajama boy type guys, so he wouldn’t be turned on by a bigger, built football player.

“Maybe he likes slender, pajama boy type guys, so he wouldn’t be turned on by a bigger, built football player.”

And how, pray tell, will the “boys” in the locker room know whether the gay in the shower stall next to the likes big football players or pajama boy types. Are they supposed to be psychic? No, all they will know is that they feel uncomfortable, very uncomfortable.

A gay coming out is “brave”? Bull crap. They’re all showered with adulation.

In America, since roughly the 1990’s, “brave” describes those who openly support capitalism, or declare that a child in the womb is, well, a child in the womb.

The media and the king and queen tweeted thier pleasure, he is courages and a role model. Funny how they all have managed to color over the “actual physical meaning” and replace it with words of praise and admiration. Think about it

Sure, if you want to use a term coined by that particular Austro-Hungarian journalist. (He also coined “heterosexual” at the same time.)

Sexually chae or just attracted? There is a huge difference.
