Missouri's Michael Sam declines White House dinner invite
nfl.com ^ | 3/4/14 | Chase Goodbread (yeah, right)

Posted on 03/05/2014 7:24:02 PM PST by SoFloFreeper

The White House put Michael Sam's decision not to be, at least early in his NFL career, perceived as an activist for gay rights to the test, and the former Missouri defensive end passed it. Sam, the NFL's first openly gay draft prospect, declined an invitation to the 2014 White House Correspondents' Dinner, according to his publicist, Howard Bragman.

I guess that 'look at me I'm homosexual, don't judge me on that basis, just judge me as a football player, by the way do you know I'm homosexual' plan isn't working out too well.

Smart move by his handlers to tell him not to go.

The National Fornicators League is setting it up for this kid to get passed by. Here is a line from the end of the story:

Sam had a sub-par showing at the combine with a 4.91 40-yard dash and other combine drills, which led to talk that he could go undrafted....

Roger Goodell and the pro-homosexual elements of the NFL are ACHING to get on board with Team Obama's agenda. Maybe Michael Sam will be able to fit the bill, but maybe not.

Perhaps Obama should invite the victims families of the Benghazi attack, oh yeah I forgot, he doesn’t have anything to gain politically from doing that..how about inviting Maureen Faulkner to the White House, oh yeah I forgot, Obama wants the man who defended her husband’s killer to the DOJ

He will be lucky to get drafted after he stunk it up at the NFL combine.

In his defense, the poor guy had a gerbil up his butt that didn’t like all the moving around within his home.

Gerbil scratches can be nasty, requiring a kiss to make it all better!

Sam was terrible at the Senior Bowl then performed horribly at the combine...he has one more shot at pro-day on March 20th...leaving to frolic with the WH would be just another dagger in his draft stock...

What NFL career? He will be lucky to even be drafted after his lousy showing at the combine. He will be an undrafted free agent that no one wants to touch. Not that he might not make it, but no one wants to be the GM that cuts him

Well maybe Obama should invite the woman who drove herself and her kids into the ocean - with a baby strapped in her seat - instead. After all, abortion is abortion - just a technicality how old they are.

I'll bet he's all lawyered up to sue the NFL or someone connected to it if he doesn't not only get picked but not put into 1st string. There's some deep pockets in the NFL, and I'm sure they're already getting ready for some long days in court because of this homosexual.

Don’t worry. Much like the cruddy basket ball player, you’ll be picked up even if you lose all four limbs in a freak logging accident. President’s orders.

Just had a terrible thought.

Michael Sam may end up on the Miami Dolphin practice squad.

After all the gay bashing Twitters between Incognito and Jonathan Martin, the NFL will probably force us to prove that we embrace diversity.

We probably can’t cut Jonathan Martin, either, unless we want a lawsuit.

Two losers on the roster, just so we can prove we are not prejudiced against gays or guys with clinical depression.

If this is a nation of true equality than the best
thing that could happen for gay pro athletes and
everyone else is for this whole thing to get to the
“no big deal” stage just as soon as possible. If the
guy becomes a pro football player he would owe it
to his team and himself to not be a spokesman for
any gay causes. Nobody cares about my heterosexuality
so I sure don’t need to hear about his gayness.

As a matter of fact if queerness is so freaking normal
then why do they need gay parades and rodeos?

With a 4.9 in the 40, the only place he’s going is to the Arena league or a UPS stockroom somewhere. But . . I’m sure he’ll get a nice 200K billet in the NFL office of queer tolerance in New York.

The guy made his career about politics, so declining the invitation was self-defeating for him. I’m glad he did it.

I don’t understand the pedestal mentality of football players.

Both Sam and Tebow are terrible at football but were worshipped like they were gods. It is so sad how we make these folks seem better people then they are.

Exactly....

I’m sure he would have felt like the token “negro” the left always accuses the right of doing to black conservatives.

Except...he would be the token “homo”...

The thing is with Sam is his size, he’s a tweener by NFL standards. Not big enough to play DE but too slow to play OLB. He had good stats in college but then lots of other guys did too and they never sniffed an NFL trainkng camp. Will be interesting.

And like Tebow, when Sam fails as an NFL player his supporters will blame it on everything except his inability to play his position at an NFL level.

In the process making the person they claim to support too radioactive to be carried on a roster. I agree totally.

Good in College, but was not good enough for the pros. He was given WAY more chances than most get because of the media interest. He was the affirmative action candidate that never lived up to the reality.

He was the anti-affirmative action candidate.
Discriminated against because he was the “Circus” candidate.
How many times did I hear -”You don’t want Tebow. He brings too much Christian baggage.”

Every player has his plus and minuses. Yes, he needs to be a more accurate pocket passer, but he is a leader and motivator on the field.

Tebow was always gracious when given a chance and then released. A total team player who almost got the Broncos to the Super Bowl.

Not true. Both were very good college football players. Neither one projected to be the same in the NFL. Tebow was persecuted though for being a Christian who was up front about it. Sam on the other hand is being praised for his sexual deviancy and being up front about it. Worshipping any entertainers as gods is just wrong on its own
