Michael Sam Jersey Sales Surge To No. 2 Out Of NFL Rookies
BuzzFeed ^

Posted on 05/12/2014 10:39:59 AM PDT by MadIsh32

In the less than 48 hours since Michael Sam was drafted to the St. Louis Rams Saturday night, sales of his jersey have already soared to No. 2 out of all of the NFL rookies drafted, OutSports reported. “This is unprecedented for a Day 3 pick, let alone a seventh round pick, to crack the top five rookies sold following Draft weekend,” NFL spokesperson Joanna Hunter told the publication. In other words, the jersey sales are significant because Sam’s became available 48 hours later than those of the other four players in the top five best-sellers.

As of Monday morning, sales of Sam’s jersey ranked second behind Johnny Manziel of the Cleveland Browns — who was drafted in the first round — and ahead of three other players drafted far ahead of him: Jadeveon Clowney of the Houston Texans, Teddy Bridgewater of the Minnesota Vikings, and Blake Bortles of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Just hours after Sam’s selection, it was reported that the NFL was scrambling to fulfill a “ridiculous” quantity of request for Sam’s jersey.

All you haters need to watch ESPN’s beautiful special interest story about Sam and his boyfriend. They have been trying to have children for more than a year without luck. They are exploring in-vitro options, but have not given up on “traditional” anal sex means of becoming parents. Let’s all hope they find out the mysterious cause of the infertility problem. Sam himself was quoted as saying, “if we keep trying I’m sure a little baby will come out of his bottom.”

And that is really the big deal here.

The NFL, like the NBA (and the Don Sterling issue) only care about one color, and that is green.

If the NFL is seeing “unprecedented” jersey sales for Michael Sam, what does one expect the league to do going forward?

One thing I am glad about....get done with all this “first this” and “first that”.....soon we will run out of firsts....for some reason a lot of groups like to classify themselves and get their “first” in the limelight. The problem is the idiots don’t realize that they have had hundred of gays in the NFL prior to today but they didn’t have to display their sexuality for all to see. The one difference between the hundreds before Sam is that Sam will make a bundle on this. The book deal alone will be low millions.

Just as I predicted.

“No doubt that Michael Sam jerseys will sell in large numbers, but most will be bought for the purpose of burning them.”

I bet the NFL bought all those jerseys, or some other special interest group.

I doubt they were bought by many fans.

In other news, sales of all other Rams shirts are down 95%, and many a Holt, Warner and Faulk shirt has been put away for the time being by Rams fans who won’t say why because it would get them banned from Ram chat boards.

Well, faggots do have a lot of money.

Wearing a Sam jersey in public will be like sending a message to fellow deviants that “this anus is available.”

Oh c'mon. I think the average rank-n-file NFL watcher is tickled pink about Sam's history-making addition to the sports world. Why, I bet fathers all over this country took their sons out for a special shopping day just to snag one of these jerseys. Think of the teachable moments!

I’ll go ahead and call BS on this one.
In almost every case, the top draft picks have the most sales, and 4 days are just too early.

and NO true fan would by a jersey of someone picked in the last round. And notice: no NFL confirmation on that story.

Sheesh. How many were bought by people named Sam, or to give as gifts to people named Sam? Purchasers don’t have to be “supporting the cause,” they might just be having a little fun.

Of course, the Left is so humorless that “fun” is an alien term.

No straight man will allow his son to wear a rams shirt let alone a homosexual’s shirt. (see plunging retention numbers of the boyscouts)

When a child comes into the ED and there is a suspicion of sexual abuse.They are identified as a SAM.
(Sexual Abuse Molestation)

I guess that will change soon as it will be politically incorrect.

Look on the bright side. Where would you rather have homosexuals and Liberals spending their disposable income? On outrageously priced officially licensed NFL jerseys, or on Liberalm Democrat Congressional and Senate candidates?

Every $ spent on a Sam jersey is a dollar they can’t spend on the 2014 midterms. Conservatives should actually be encouraging this spending behavior.
