Not in this case. I wonder how the people in St. Louis believe this forced celebration of sodomy will affect their culture.

How lucky for us. /s

I wouldn’t have had to see it other than the fact that they broke in on another show on FOXSports1 to show me.

ESPN wasn’t surprised by the homosexual action....The people in charge were HOPING for this to happen.

I’m so glad I don’t follow football. I’ve never given a Super Bowl party in my life and I never will after these past few months. What disgrace to an American sport.

How many heterosexual kisses were newsworthy for the NFL draft in the last 50 years? Why do the agenda-driven media think we want to see anyone kissing in a sports story, let alone perverts who will make decent people leave their channel/website?

Funny how liberals are the first to be offended by anything remotely Christian, but they have no problem shoving the most offensive things out there so we are forced to see it whether we are offended or not.

Good luck to the team if he is not good enough to make the team on opening day. Cut him and it will be Donald Sterling all over again.

I wonder how many fast channel changing clicks took place and how their ratings faired? At this stage, do they even care if their audience turns them off?

He’s going to be cut. He is a defensive end that weighs, at most, 235-240 pounds...plus, even though he is small, he isn’t fast enough to play in the NFL, unless they put him on special teams...even then his speed is an issue...SO small and slow, not a good combination...

So much hoopla over a below average draft pick...

Every female singer has been getting it on lesbian style for years. A great inspiration for all our kids. Plus every actress keeps saying they did it. What a wonderful culture.

Btw I don’t recall many heterosexual men kissing a gf when they get selected. Gee do you think gay men like to flout this stuff?

I think this guy is a complete jerk. And he will be nothing but a problem.

"He’s going to be cut."

Not this year I predict. The fallout before the start of the season would be too much. He'll make it some way, some how. Even if it's on the practice squad.

Thank God the Seahawks didn’t get him. I would have had to turn in my Seahawk fan membership.

How appropo this Sam guy was drafted by the “Rams”- he could have fit in with the “Packers”

It would not surprise me if we find out later that the kiss was staged and suggested by some ESPN producer to them to do when he was drafted.

We will be “treated” to endless mini-stories on this loser all season. When he gets cut, there will be protests and intimidation campaigns. He will then go on to star in his own reality show. This pop-culture nation is so disgustingly ill right now.

Heterosexuals are the new racists.

Remember back in the days when the really cool people felt it was necessary to prove they had some connection with blacks?

They claimed to have black friends, or that their daughter had a black boyfriend, or that they were planning a trip to Africa...

Well, we are now entering the phase where people will be bragging that they have good friends who are queer, or their brother or uncle is a queer, or that they have had a homo affair in the past.

It will be the cool thing.

Anyone who isn’t queer, doesn’t have queer friends or doesn’t have a good yarn to spin about their latent homosexuality will be looked down on as more or less a Neanderthal.

People will be flooding the queer bars, queer bathhouses and queer bookstores just to prove that they are progressives and part of the really cool people.

All you haters need to watch ESPN’s beautiful special interest story about Sam and his boyfriend. They have been trying to have children for more than a year without luck. They are exploring in-vitro options, but have not given up on “traditional” anal sex means of becoming parents. Let’s all hope they find out the mysterious cause of the infertility problem. One day, medical science will catch up to this.

When Hollywood celebrated a story of two perverted cowboys buggering each other up on Brokeback Mountain, this vision of a gay athlete kissing his lover at the draft became a foregone conclusion.

I am now waiting for the escalation of exactly what queers do in the privacy of their bedrooms to be paraded before us all on prime time TV situation comedies et al.

Not common knowledge, but there is a black sub culture that is homosexual in nature but not considered homosexual acts....

Being on the “low down” is what it is called...so having a homosexual in the locker room is probably not going to be a big deal....

Micheal Sam being open and upfront with public displays will be a problem....

Popman, I think the figure of speech is ‘on the down low,’ but otherwise you’re right. It’s exhibited by black men that engage is homosexual acts, but still consider themselves straight. It’s unusual, but this behavior is seen in prisons, too, by all races.

If only the pro-choice liberals would mandate the unbundling of cable television channels so the American consumer could choose which networks she/he wished to pay to watch and did not have to subsidize others. ESPN, MSNBC, and several other networks would not be receiving my money.

Freedom to choose for progressives applies only to sexual acts and abortion. On other issues only the enlightened members of the elite class are capable of choosing for the rest of us.

Sam, by his actions, has clearly shown he is more interested in being a Gay Rights Crusader, than a football player.

The Rams’ management has to be freaking out about what they just did.

I think the NFL made a deal with the Rams, to sweeten their deal to move back to LA.

And Sam will be the toast of the town when they return there.

In 2008 Hillary was "robbed" of her turn at the presidency because progressives and other idiots decided they would rather have a neat black guy than a dumpy white woman as president.

In 2016 will she again be "robbed" of her turn because the progressives and other idiots decide it is more cool to have a homosexual black and his "boyfriend" as president and First Lady than a fat, old, white woman and her aging leg-hound husband as the president and First Hubby?

It bears repeating, the sports media is at least as liberal as the rest of the media, and ESPN is at least as liberal as CNN. Sports are not a safe haven from the leftwing agenda, in fact, those broadcasts and the attendant advertising are among the very worst.

I think this went beyond “Hope”....I think it was orchestrated.

Call me cynical, but I bet they posed for that kis a dozen times, so the media could check the lighting, etc. for the big shot.
