Skip to comments.OWN Postpones Michael Sam Docuseries

The news comes amid reports that the NFL and the St. Louis Rams were unaware of Sams docuseries plans and just two days after the Discovery-owned cable network officially greenlighted the reality show.
After careful consideration and discussion with the St. Louis Rams, the untitled Michael Sam project has been postponed, allowing Michael the best opportunity to achieve his dream of making the team, said Erik Logan, president of OWN. OWN is about elevating and empowering people to achieve their best. Its clear that we, along with the world, recognize the important opportunity that Michael now has in this moment. We will continue to support him in his journey to earn a spot playing for the Rams.

you mean st Louis didn’t know they were signing up for a circus?
Wasn’t this a violation of NFL rules?
Homos have no impulse control.
homosexual role models we dont need
Guess the gay porn movies are off also, until he gets cut, anyway. It’s all about football, donchaknow.
Apparently their plan was to do the filming away from NFL-restricted locations.
“We will continue to support him in his journey to earn a spot playing for the Rams.
Hedging their bets. LOL
Cutting through all the BS, the NFL totally controls and must pre-approve, be involved with, and control the flow of revenue of ANY commercial venture that any NFL personnel are involved in.
Obviously, the Okra folks are completely clueless about how the NFL works. Sam, until he was drafted, was not an employee of the NFL and could do what he wanted, but now that he’s an employee, he can’t do squat without NFL approval. You’d of thunk his agent would have explained all of this to him, but looks like he’s got a clueless agent as well. Or maybe they all just thought being queer was special enough that the regular rules didn’t apply to him, you know, “Being queer means you never have to say you’re sorry.”
You mean they looked into it and realized it would attract only 15% of OWN Network viewers?
In other words, 6 viewers.
If this had been known before the draft, he would have never been drafted.
This makes sense now.
Sam was never serious about playing in the NFL. He didn’t prepare for the Combine. He showed up out of shape and indifferent. His coming out can now be explained as a ruse. He has been looking to cash in since Mizzou played its’ bowl game.
With this TV show cancelled now, I believe that there is a 60-40% chance that Sam will not show up when training camp opens. He is a star now, (much like The Kardashians) and he cannot risk injuring his wonderful body. Don’t believe me, just ask his boyfriend...
Biden’s head might look better if someone parked a turd on there.
Plus Hollyweird arrogance.
So he's not circumcised yet?
Apparently Sam believed he could have cameras on him and all the other players throughout training until he’s cut. I can understand why he believed it. He now believes he can get anything. I predict he’ll be working in a car wash in a few years. Once he’s cut and everyone is finished using him they will abandon him.
Stupid! The people of her color have never accepted or condoned homosexuality in my opinion. Only the socialist elites among them approve and condone this unnatural behaviour.
He’ll be like Olbermann and Meghan McCain coming up like Mr. Hanky, right when you think they are finally gone.
His degree in basket weaving will help him after he is cut from the Rams.
There was a professor at Baylor University who taught a physics class that all football players took. His name was Packard. The class was referred to as “Packard’s Football Physics”.
Dick’d that one up, eh?
What’s on his neck then?
Why not, the seventh round draft pick gets phone calls from the president now. Maybe he can become a "body man" when his calendar opens up in the next several weeks.
Is the warranty still good on Biden’s hair plugs?
My problem with OWN is that the nestled it in among a block of channels (on my system) that I check out. They should have moved it up a bit to be with Al Jareeza and Pivot, where it would attract less negative attention.
I’m just glad race-pimp liar Oprah is crumbling to irrelevant dust. She called for an anti-white genocide. Now she’s a Whoopie Goldberg except without the Harlem hobo look.
He blew it too....
He really overdid it. First the embarrassment on ESPN, which you can’t tell me didn’t hurt the Rams’ various sales, then the corporate contracts, then the line of his gear, all for a seventh rounder who may not even make the team.
I remember one afternoon in the early 2000’s, the Atlanta Braves had gay day at the park. They hyped it like crazy, and thought it would be roundly accepted. They got torched. The announcers stopped talking about it a week beforehand, and when it came, the cameras were very careful. I don’t think they did it again.
That inbred hillbilly idiot loves nothing better than a circus.
Drat. Was so looking forward to watching the episode where Michael’s interior designer pals decorate his locker.
Apparently also selling his own merchandise online
Whatta freak show. I hope St. Louie fans weren’t expecting too much this season.
When the players shower, no one soaps their eyes ‘cause they want to keep an eye on Sams, right?
It must be like a Lifetime movie in the Rams’ locker room. Oxygen or whatever that fag channel is called.
Whoa! Lennie dropped his soap, and everyone froze. “OK, I’m picking up my soap now.” (Lennie crouches, looks anxiously around. A shot rings out!)
He better not be doing that on the White House Oval Desk grrrrr
The Rams should have cut $am for failing to disclose the Oprah deal as he basically lied by omission.
Either way, hell be cut as he doesnt have the talent to make the Rams DL which is the best in the NFL and is deep.
And it’s unlikely they will carry 9 DEs but if they do, the 9th will be Ethan Westbrooks who can play both DT and DE, unlike $am.
Cut from the roster. I doubt that he makes the team.
Looks like the Faggot Express has been derailed.
That explains a lot
This is great news. Now they can hire David and Jason Benham to do their show......
Being queer means you never have to say youre sorry.
Would make a good Hallmark card for disclosure of AIDS between infected gays and their “body men.”
Wrecked ‘em?, damn near killed ‘em!
No one will watch.
What a buzzkill.
I thought we were just going to put him in the NFL Hall of Fame and have him parade the latest androgynous styles up and down the runways of those fashion shows to handclaps and cameras flashing and get put on the cover of magazines?
Didn't Obama get the Nobel Peace Prize before he even took office? All that was left for Obama to do after his coronation was to improve his golf game assume effeminate mannerisms. He never had to actually do anything.
So how come it is different for this Michael Sam? Why is he expected to show up for practices and actually "prove himself" when instead they should be retiring his number, handing him Super Bowl rings (with matching set for boyfriend), and building statues in his honor.
I find it hard to believe that they did not know...
They saw the $$$$ and figured maybe we can get away with it....
After all, restricting any of Michael Sam activity is "homophobic"...
Parking a turd on Vice President Biden’s head is redundant.
Sam is getting horrible leadership and advice. He has sought out the wrong “friends” that’s for sure. His agent has spent the last two months putting this Oprah show thing together and making himself a producer on the show. The twink he is seeing comes from a mob background and has previously dated a male porn star. Whatever good intentions Sam may or may not have started with, this thing is a train wreck now.
Really ? Screams conflict of interest...
Proves that Michael Sam is not only a undersized NFL DE relegated to the Special Teams roster if he makes the team, but the guy is not too bright either ...
This deviant’s “dream” is not “making the team”, but rather shoving his feces-ingesting perversion down the throats of normal Americans.
