NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – You’ve probably seen it. If not, you’ve definitely heard about it.

Michael Sam became the first openly-gay man to be drafted by an NFL team on Saturday when the Rams took him with the 249th pick in the seventh round.

Upon hearing the news, the former Missouri standout kissed his boyfriend, Vito Cammisano. It was televised for the world to see.

Many players, journalists and fans embraced the moment and supported Sam. But, as expected, others found the moment unsettling and inappropriate.

Children should not be exposed to their sinful behavior. They should keep it in the closet.

Conservatives need to have this as a "teaching moment" with their children. Every parent has the opportunity to tell their children about the people who practice sodomy and how they are harming themselves. ALWAYS refer people to the Centers for Disease Control website and refer them to the MSM information. DO NOT TACKLE THIS HOMOSEXUAL - MARRIAGE EQUALITY ISSUE IN ANY OTHER WAY EXCEPT TO REFER THEM TO THE HEALTH RISKS OF MSM!

The gaystapo media is winning the war on this because people are not looking at the issue from where it should be looked at. Sodomy is disgusting and filthy and produces DISEASE. Marriage equality?? I don't think so. Men having sex with men (MSM) is a filthy degenerate proposition that has zero equality to a man and a woman in a marriage.

I was honored to spend many decades of my life with them firmly in their damn closet. I just didn't know how lucky I was at the time.

Is there anything left that hasn’t been ruined by sodomites and liberals?

There is nothing the MSM loves more than tasteless side shows, e.g., Mylie Cyrus and the Kardashians.

The media never reports anything the CDC has to say about gay men as disease-carriers. It’s readily available, but verboten to report.

This mess is just little more strange than just about a same sex relationship.

The boyfriend, Vito Cammisano, is the grandson of Willie 'the rat' Cammisano a former enforcer (aka; 'hit man') in the KC mafia. Willie got his nick name because of his reputation for dumping 'his kills' into the sewer system for the rats to consume.

Even more strange about the relationship is that the mafia is known to be VERY bias against (and unaccepting) of both blacks and homo's.

God has spoken clearly, so it is first and foremost a moral issue in my house. Disease is the temporal consequence of breaking God’s law, but that’s nothing compared to the eternal consequence. Even if there were no disease, it would still be a perverse lifestyle condemned by God’s Word.

Disgusting! The Rams will rue the day they drafted this perv. Wonder if the true story of his draft will ever surface.

Stephen A, Smith went so far to say that a conspiracy that Sims should have been draft earlier when every expert said if he got drafted it would be in the 6 or 7th round before the draft.

Sodomy is disgusting and filthy and produces DISEASE.

This is a great point and bears repeating. There's a very good, very valid reason that every blood bank in this US asks the question "Have you ever had sexual contact with another man, even just once?" It's an automatic disqualification to donate, because the number of possible STDs among other diseases is so numerous as to be statistically poor for them to even waste their time and resources to draw your blood.

If they test the blood and find any of the host of STDs or diseases spread by sodomy, they have to throw away that blood at the cost for the people who drew and the equipment used to do so.

His performance at the combines was mediocre at best. A 4.91s 40-yd dash doesn’t cut it for an NFL defensive end.

And if you're undersized, you'd better be fast as lightning because that's all you've got going for you in the NFL.

Michael Sam weighs something like 260 pounds, and there were 320+ pound offensive linemen turning in faster 40-yard times than him.

Personally, I think the guy has no interest in playing football (maybe that's why his performance at the NFL combines was so poor) ... and that at some point he decided that "coming out" before the NFL draft was the best way to advance his most lucrative career prospect: as a professional homosexual.

I don't follow football like I used to, either. From everything I've read he's a borderline NFL player whose draft position dropped considerably due to two major factors: (1) his poor showing at the NFL combines this past winter, and (2) the fear on the part of many NFL teams of inviting a circus-like atmosphere to the team if they draft him.

What makes this story even more strange is that he was drafted by the St. Louis Rams, who already have some of the best pass rushers in the NFL on their defensive line. This guy will have a hard time making the team.

I think when your attitude is pervasive among sports fans, the tide will start to turn. My only interest in sports is when a WI team gets into the Super Bowl, or the World Series, or whatever. When they win, my coworkers are VERY easy to get along with. (Except for the occasional Bears or Vikings fan.)

the Rams took him with the 249th pick in the seventh round

My math doesn't correspond here. Each team gets one pick per round, and there are 32 teams. Therefore, round 7 consists of picks 193 through 224; pick 249 would be in the 8th round, only I thought they went a total of 7 rounds. What'd they do, extend the 7th round to another set of picks until someone gave in and drafted the gay guy?

I wonder it it won't be just the opposite. The Rams may find it difficult to cut him because of the PR hit the gay media will put on the management.

NFL teams: "We can't have Tim Tebow on our roster because of the distractions his presence will attract. But we love the idea of bringing in a man that plays tongue hockey with another man on national TV, no controversy there."

There’s also compensatory picks for teams that lose drafted players to free agency. Compensatory picks come at the end of a round.

There are supplemental draft picks between rounds. If a team loses a free agent to another team, the team will get a supplement pick.

MSM is winning because conservatives won’t cut the cable or satellite. They continue to tithe to the left. I’ll bet that includes a majority on this site.

Not really. He’s undersized to play LB - which I think was his college position. The Rams have drafted him to be an edge pass rusher - but by that notion, he’s not really fast enough to play DE.

I suspect he’ll play special teams first and maybe nickel packages a bit. But that’s IF he makes the team. He was a 7th round pick after all and the Rams have one of the better D-Lines in the game.

It was poor judgement by ESPN, IMO. You would have had to expect that reaction from Sam - and I’m sure they did, which is why they had cameras there to catch it.

Polarizing issues shouldn’t be thrust front and center over national broadcast media. It’s like when that idiot Bob Costas went on ranting about guns before - some NFL game - I forget. I was dumbfounded that night.

Professional Sports and the combat military were the last vestiges of examples of real men. But real men are politically incorrect today. Now these last vestiges are being replaced by limp wristed fairies and ugly ass dykes.

Pretty soon the NFL will be co-ed flag football where if anybody grabs a player anywhere close to a private part they will be suspended and sent to sexual harassment re-education camp or just sued for battery and sexual harassment.

The guy from the rams is named Les Snead, or to put it another way, there is less nead for Sam.

What kind of PR flak are the Rams going to take if he’s not good enough and they need to cut him?

My guess is they look for another team that is eager to make a PC statement and trade him off for nothing. Or some variation on that.

Maybe. But if he stinks, he stinks. And it’ll be obvious. Like Tim Tebow. If that guy could play, teams would have been clamoring to get him. Same thing here. If he’s not good enough to make the team, he won’t. And BECAUSE of the potential PR mess involved in cutting him, that will make it all the more believable. Only until he’s picked up by someone else and plays like a stud will the Rams cutting him become a story. Look at all that crap surrounding Mantei Teo. The guy isn’t that good.
