Skip to comments.'I can't believe ESPN even allowed that to happen': former NFL running back (subject: Sam's kiss)
Posted on 05/12/2014 6:18:14 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement
A now-retired Super Bowl-winning NFL running back went on a Twitter tirade on Saturday after openly gay 2014 draft pick Michael Sam kissed his boyfriend on television.
Derrick Ward, 33, who was a member of the New York Giants Super Bowl XLII-winning team, didn't hide his disdain for ESPN's decision to air Sam's smooch with boyfriend Vito Cammisano after learning he would become a St. Louis Ram.
'Man U got little kids lookin at the draft,' Ward complained. 'I can't believe ESPN even allowed that to happen.'

You really think that isn’t a good possibility? I would hold the sarc tag.
What is going to happen to viewership? Will Dads decide it’s not worth tuning in at the risk their little children will see things they should not?
The Gaystapo will see to it that he and his family starve. That’s how they teach “tolerance” these days.
Tebow prays and is laughed at, tossed out, and called many unpleasant names.
Sams gets to kiss his puppy on national television and is a hero.
Black is white, up is down, left is right, we are in such trouble!
Just wait until the first out of the closet goat-porker is drafted.
I wonder if there are any current players who are willing to speak as Phil Robertson did on the subject of homosexual behavior. Maybe Papa Manning would risk taking on truth. Nah. The Mannings are all about politics.
Yep, with predictable results....
Don Jones fined, suspended by the Dolphins in wake of tweets critical of Michael Sam
Adrian Peterson, from a year ago:
NFL MVP Adrian Peterson says he has family members who are gay whom he loves and respects. But on gay marriage, the Minnesota Vikings running back says “that’s not something I believe in.”
Allowed it? Hell, I’m sure they scripted it.
Not half as bad as a viagra commercial every 10 minutes.
I suspect we’ll hear ESPN announce in a few days that they are going to have a Reality Show featuring Sam going through the Rams training camp.
Burn the unbeliever at the Stake!!!!
The NFL was already a terrible product: slow, fat, old, tattooed, self absorbed idiots walking around the field with no sense of urgency because, win or lose, they’re making 300,000 every game. Incessant “instant” replays, the worst, most hyped championship game in all of sports, and predictable boring offenses. Just what’s on the field is bad enough. Mix in stripper cheerleaders, viagra and beer commercials, Tim Tebow derangement syndrome, United Way Marxism, now the Lavender Mafia, I’ll never watch another down.
The Left is successfully ruing the whole country, even sports. I wondered how they would queer up the NFL. It didn’t seem possible. Here it is.
Michael Sam is too small and too slow for the NFL. The Rams can't play him aggressively or risk him getting clobbered.
Other NFLers are either waiting for a chance at payback for politicizing the game or are worried if they hit him too hard, they could be accused of some anti-homo crime.
If St. Louis cuts him, they can expect White House scrutiny or worse.
Sam brings more issues and distractions than any player in recent history...
That wouldn't surprise me in the least. That, along with Sam's whining about not being drafted in the 2nd or 3rd round, tell me this whole saga is laced with a lot more "agenda" than some are willing to admit.
The are actually all about the Mannings~
Let’s not...I don’t need to see that pic ever again.
