....While Sam is a really good player -- not a great one -- the NFL is promoting him as one of the biggest spectacles at the combine....
The NFL is promoting it that way because a lot of people are interested in seeing Sams workout.

By the way, nice choice of words, Mr. Headline Writer.
In the end.... Hopefully, as a packer.
At the rate his stock is dropping with scouts, he may never have a legacy.
So, when he gets fired, does this mean we won’t get a bunch of stories about how he washed out due to homophobia?
That sure is the truth. Well said!!!!
- Barack Hussein Obama Junior leads Sambo from behind ..
Ever notice that whenever the issue of removing a moral boundary is up for debate it is always the Leftist eager, to the point of irrationality, to remove the societal moral guardrail?
I saw him the other day say he wants to be treated like any other person, yet every time he turns around he has to shout out that he’s gay.
I wonder what will happen the first time a straight player states he feels uncomfortable showering with another man who may be sexually attracted to him?
“So, when he gets fired, does this mean we wont get a bunch of stories about how he washed out due to homophobia?”
In short, yes.
He already has a legacy? Wow, this guy is gooooood.
He’ll be pushing the stools in the locker room.
I was at a restaurant last night and they had one of the ESPN channels on various TVs. What was it showing? An empty podium waiting for NBA NJ Nets coach Jason Kidd and 10 day contract signer Jason Collins to give a press conference.
It’s the combine, usually the most interesting thing about it is the question of whether rich Eisen will blow out his hammy doing the 40 in street clothes. So yes they’re featuring the only player there to have made any headlines since the college season ended. Not terribly surprising.
Nothing is sacred anymore.
This is the same reason why we have "public" education, a push for gay marriage, welfare, common core, etc. etc. etc.
Nothing is sacred anymore.
Indeed. Everything is acceptable. Whatever makes you happy.
I wish. If Ham is a bust in the NFL, as he may well turn out to be, then a lot of Ham's supporters will blame his failure in the NFL on everything except a lack of talent to play at the pro level. Just like with Tebow supporters.
Sorry, forgot to add the sarcasm tag to my previous post!
The gay Missouri guy was here for the NFL combine.
So he has this big press conference Saturday with 60 reporters and says I wish people would just treat me like any other football player
WTF?? Why not just keep your mouth shut in the first place.
His weight lifting horrible for a defensive lineman.
He is a Linebacker but he is too slow for that position. One brave person tweeted that his path to the NFL is too work on being on the kickoff team.
When a player got slapped on the butt, it was a way to celebrate a good play.
With Michael Sam it could be construed as sexual harassment.
Happened to be visiting someone who was watching news on an ABC affiliate. Had an interview where he was whining that he wanted to be judged as a football player, not a gay football player. IIRC, he told everyone he was gay. If he didn’t want to talk about it, he shouldn’t have talked about it. IMHO.
This is a commie tactic - to infect just a part so that you think that it is the whole.
What real guy is gonna want to play a gay sport?
He won’t be a tight end for long.
“He is a Linebacker but he is too slow for that position. One brave person tweeted that his path to the NFL is too work on being on the kickoff team.”
Yup, he will be a special teamer at best. He is just not that good!

Do you mean if a ‘straight’ player slaps ‘ITS’ butt
OR (maybe even worse)
If IT slaps a ‘straight’ players butt.
One would/could be sexual assault OR sexual harassment.
It gets harder(?) to keep the facts straight(?) every day.
While ‘they’ may not target IT, surely those that choose to ‘pal up’ with IT will be a target and Lord help the player that stands to close to him in the huddle.
Of course, they are making moves to stop the trash talk so....
If IT makes it and some other ‘confused souls’ - those not sure if they are M or F or Other - will put new meaning into the old saying “Why not put dresses on them and let them hold hands in the huddle”.
Make Alex Karras not only correct but (probably) wanting him to punch another horse.
At least he didn’t have to see this, but he did sort of ‘predict’ it.....
so the F’ in NFL stands for fag now?
Sams combine workout has been a total flop....4.91 seconds in the forty while most 280 defensive lineman were running in the 4.6’s and 4.7’s (Sam weighs 260lbs), 17 reps on the bench press (24 was the average for dlineman), 25 inch vertical jump (only 3 were worse- 330-pound Louis Nix was 25.5 inches) and he looked awful in drills...
And there you have the reasons for him “coming out” before the combine and draft. In the vernacular of the NFL, Sam is a “tweener,” too small to play DT, a bit short for DE and a tad slow for OLB. He was looking like a late-round draft choice, and I imagine there were plenty of NFL GMs willing to take a pass on him—maybe offer a free agent contract.
Now, as the “first openly gay draft prospect,” Sam is almost certain to be drafted, probably in round three. There are plenty of “progressive” front offices in the league who would give him a shot, just for the favorable p.r. And once he’s on a roster, it will be more difficult to get rid of him, and risk being labeled a homphobe—or worst.
As I posted previously on FR, Michael Sam’s career will be much longer that it would/should be, thanks to his emergence from the closet. You might say that Sam “gayed” his way into the NFL, just as Jayson Collins has resurrected his NBA career by coming out.
That’s because all those scouts are “homophobic”...
“There are plenty of progressive front offices in the league who would give him a shot”
another words he’ll play ten years with the pittsburgh steelers....
There’s a field behind the arena where gays hang out.
This gives the “F” in NFL an entirely new meaning!
I asked my wife the rhetorical question this morning: “Why do they want to force people to go against their religion?”
Then I asked “And why are muslims exempt?”
The only possible solution is to destroy the country.
Then I ask “Why does the left want to give their kids a country that won’t offer them the opportunities they had?”
Great minds think alike!
I guess the stopwatches are as well.
Yes. You see, the stopwatches are Swiss, and it is a well established fact that the Swiss are homophobic.
Just wait until someone hits him too hard, and Holder tries to prosecute it as a hate crime.
Wonder when a player will come into the draft announcing “I’m straight. I’m a normal person. I’m in Biblical alignment with God’s will.” Will the press say “what a brave individual this guy is. Going against all the PC B.S.”
What agent in their right mind would encourage a “coming out party” for a prospect? Whatever becomes of this media frenzy, Sam chose to bring it on himself by making a big deal of his sexual preference. Instead of a football player who just happens to be gay (Jerry Smith of the Redskins), he is now known first as a gay man who plays football. Apparently this is to get him selected in the first round, kind of an NFL version of affirmative action.
I’m almost sure the Broncos will draft this puke as he got a hard on’ thinking of this fag.
Didn’t that basically happen with Tim Tebow? The media hates him.
I do not understand his admiration.
“...to remove the societal moral guardrail?”
Post modernism. It tears down the existing power structure.
Sam was always a fourth round pick, at best, that’s why he chose to play the sodomy card. He got what he and his agent wanted, tons of attention and pressure on someone - anyone - in the NFL to draft him.
In the most calculating and crafty of ways Michael Sam is leveraging his sexual preference into the public eye. He may likely be a total bust in the NFL, but Michael Sam will be called “the first” and will earn unending adulation and attention that he and his agent will turn into cash.
What is the only reason the Jason Collins got a 10 DAY contract? For no other reason whatsoever than to legitimize him by forevermore forcing everyone to refer to him as, “former NBA player, Jason Collins”. It’s a total scam, but’s that’s how the Left works, through deceit.
