Extreme Christian lobbyist threatens 'relentless national boycott' of whichever NFL team drafts openly gay rookie Michael Sam
An influential Christian lobbyist has said he is planning to build a 'national coalition' to relentlessly boycott any team that drafts gay NFL prospect Michael Sam.
Jack Burkman, head of the Washington, D.C. lobbying firm J.M. Burkman & Assoc., said he would 'leverage his political clout' to ensure that the franchise that selects the player would get 'roughed up financially.' ...
'We shall exercise our First Amendment rights and shall not stop until the drafting NFL franchise cannot sell a single ticket, jersey or autographed football,' said Burkman. 'In short, we shall be relentless.' ...

I doubt he is even gay. He’s just trying to bump his draft.
There have been gay players in the past. There are probably some now.
This should be interesting to see. Kind of like the liberals’ attack on Chick-Fil-A and Duck Dynasty, huh? But what do you want to bet the democrat politicians and all of the MSM just GO NUTS about what an evil thing this type of boycott would be.
Hey, Burkman . . . we’ve lost. Fall back to a position that we can defend.
You can make money doing this?
Give me a break. As previously stated we have had homosexuals in sports since the ancient Greeks. This clown is as worthless as the homosexuals who prance around like fairies and protest for equality and then some.
I guess it’s a good thing Kwame Harris was out of the league before he was out of the closet...
Jack Burman in an attention whore. He’s a buttholes in a town of buttholes he stands out.
What about all the teams drafting known thugs and criminals? This is just ridiculous.
“’We shall exercise our First Amendment rights and shall not stop until the drafting NFL franchise cannot sell a single ticket, jersey or autographed football,’ said Burkman. ‘In short, we shall be relentless.’ ...”
The FAGGOT jerseys will have a very limited appeal and consumer base.
The urban Yutes are about the only ones that buy the crap, and not very many will want ‘Queer Gear’.
Count me out of this boycott. It sounds like someone trying to gin up publicity and $$$$$ for his lobbying group. Besides, I could care less if an NFL team has a gay player as long as he isn’t pushing gay issues and wearing like a badge of honor.
Sounds like a false-flag operation to me.
I don’t want to know about what kind of ball a player plays with on his own time.
I love football but hate the NFL so I’m in. I’ll boycott every game of the season.

How does it bump his draft?
No team is going to want the liability of drafting him, then cutting him.....Why even bother to draft him in the first place, with the circus it would create?
which NFL team wants to commit suicide.
which NFL team want to be the “homosexual team”
the second a team hires this homosexual their logo will become synonymous with homosexuals and no self respecting normal person will want to be associated with it.
