Michael Sam didnít disclose doc plans, fearing it might hurt draft stock, per report
SI ^ | May 15, 2014 | Bryan Rose

The Oprah Winfrey Network is set to begin production on a documentary series surrounding Michael Sam, a plan that Sam and his representatives knew about before the draft. The problem? The latter group didn’t disclose that fact to the St. Louis Rams or other teams.

Per ESPN’s Ed Werder, Sam and Co. didn’t disclose their OWN documentary plans to teams ahead of the draft out of fear that he “might not be picked.” St. Louis scooped up Sam at pick No. 249 overall.

I bet the Rams coaching management don't appreciate being lied too. If Fisher has any guts he would cut Sam but we all know Sam is being protected by Goodell for at least the 2014-15 season.

Don’t the Rams get a say in this?

What if they don’t want a reality show camera crew in training camp...can they say no?

The Rams deserve it. They allowed themselves to be bullied into taking him, they won’t dare cut him.

The Rams can keep Oprah/Sam off their facilities. This would all about Sam outside the Rams sites.

I knew right away when he kissed his little white friend, that he was planning on a reality show. Just shocked it wasn’t ESPN’s idea.

The NFL pretty much dictates that teams must allow access.....it’s the same with HBO’s “Hard Knocks.”

I heard a radio analyst, I believe it was ESPN radio, say that he had no problems with Michael Sam “trying to make some extra money” by doing this. The brainwashers are out there!

The Rams were incredibly stupid to hire this guy. There’s no way that the PC Police will allow them to discipline or fire him. And there’s no way they will be allowed to keep him on the bench, even if he plays badly.

Hire a double-PC guy, and you are stuck with him forever.

I’m waiting for the segment where Vito struggles to remain faithful while Michael is at training camp.

Ten-to-one he doesn't make the team.

Remember that we live in a politically correct world now.

Under political correctness, certain people, such as homosexuals, are special because, well just because.

If you are a member of a special recognized grievance group, such as homosexuals, then you are allowed to get away with things the rest of us are not allowed to get away with. You are held to a different standard than the rest of us.

In this case, Sam was allowed to lie about, and/or not disclose his intentions about the reality show. He will not be called to task on this, because of his membership in the grievance group known as homosexuals.

I’ve heard Oprah’s network has very low ratings, and she has had problems getting her network off the ground.

I don’t even get Oprah’s network. It’s on a higher tier of channel packages, which I don’t get as of now. Am I homophobic if I don’t sign up for the higher level of channels, so I can then watch Michael Sam’s reality show????

Yes, the team can say no. The NFL can probably say no too.

Sure they do, but if they don't cooperate with enthusiasm, they will be anally probed by the media, the leftist grievance groups, probably the League, and Obama.

Bullied? Jeff Fischer was ecstatic about adding Sam.

I wonder how proud they are that the first openly gay football player is also black? The brutha’s don’t care for that.

where Vito struggles to remain faithful

does that mean keep it down to 2 other partners at a time in the gay community?
