ESPN Analyst Jason Whitlock On Michael Sam: ‘I’d Be Very Tempted To Cut The Guy Today’
tampa.cbslocal.com ^ | May 15, 2014 10:57 PM

Posted on 05/16/2014 7:54:46 PM PDT by BenLurkin

Whitlock pointed out that it seems like Sam is taking advantage of his position and it’s evident by him selling his own merchandise online:

“I feel duped. Again, he’s got a website up selling t-shirts – it’s a merchandise store. This all looks like a cash grab more than a guy that wants to be a great football player as he has said. I don’t wanna come down too hard on Michael Sam, he comes from a very difficult background with his family and as we saw on draft day he was not surrounded by family as most people are on draft day, he was surrounded by two of his handlers and his boyfriend. You have to wonder if he’s not being manipulated and influenced because everyone that I know that knows him as a football player says he’s very passionate about football, but here he is now as a 7th-round pick, a guy who is a longshot to make the roster, he’s now involving himself with a reality TV show, he’s got a website up hawking t-shirts, his agents cut a deal to be producers on this show, his publicist cut a deal to be a producer on this show, again it just doesn’t pass the smell test in terms of authenticity. It’s disappointing because I think whoever is maneuvering him needs to understand, the most important thing he has to do is make the football team. If he doesn’t make the football team all their causes, concerns about the LGBT community, the selling of merchandise, it all goes away.”

Whitlock also admitted that if he was a Rams decision-maker, he’d consider cutting Sam immediately.

By Monday morning ESPN will have taken Mr. Whitlock to the woodshed. And the beating he’ll take won’t be pretty.

Welcome to fascist America, Jason.

Cutting him for anything less than absolutely atrocious on-field performance will be met with loud screams of “homophobia”. I think that the Rams are stuck with this guy for at least a couple of games.

Give it a few days, this guy will be singing a different tune..BSPN will throw him in a closet and demand that he apologize to the homo community..of course Michael Sam is using his gayness to make money..DUH..he knows he stinks as a football player, just like Jason Collins knows he would be in the D league right now if it weren’t for the fact that he “Came out” its all about getting on a winning team..then they sit their asses on the bench and you never hear from them again

Nothing worse in team sports than a cancer in the locker room.

Once it becomes known that Sam is only interested in Sam, then any continued association with the organization would be fatal to the teams chances for that season.

He may be cut.

It is too early to cut him. It would seem underhanded, even though they can't blame homophobia since they new what they were getting with him. But by most accounts, he is not qualified athletically to be on the team. They can let him go through training camp, assign him to a practice squad, and cut him later, after his numbers show that he is not good enough to make the team. If he doesn't have the measurable numbers to make the team, nothing Oprah can do can change that.

Whitlock is the same guy who said something unpopular with this crowd here one time at least. So, this time, perhaps he evens it out a little.

“Whitlock pointed out that it seems like Sam is taking advantage of his position and it’s evident by him selling his own merchandise online: “

Uh, as I’ve pointed this out before, the NFL is gonna shut down the homo-merchandising REAL soon as no NFL employee is allowed to earn a dime outside of their NFL salary UNLESS and UNTIL the NFL approves AND gets a cut of the moolah.

Disagree, Whitlock has the golden key to say anything about anybody with impunity.

They just need to get a few minutes of video of him looking like he's playing, then they can make him into a trailblazing hero for the lefties. They'll name some high schools after him, build a museum about his struggle for equality, and so on.

“I have a feeling that this whole debacle is going to end badly for Mr. Sam and his boyfriend.”

Yeah, I think you’re right. And the sad thing is that if Sam had kept is mouth shut and just played football like everyone else, he might have been a good football player. It could be that poor ol’ Sam is just a weak-minded dupe of the homolobby and will just end up being another one of their victims. Heck, perhaps they’re even deliberately trying to make Sam a martyr.

Personally, I really don’t give a rat’s ass about who screws whom, I just don’t want to hear about it.

No. The Gay always trump The Black. Gays give more money to Democrats. Besides, Blacks slamming gays give Democrats an excuse to do what they enjoy best...subjugating blacks (just like they did in the good ol days with slavery, lynchings, and rape).
