Michael Sams Rams jersey is flying off the shelves at NFLShop.com, with the No. 249th pick out-selling the drafts top overall pick.
The jersey is the second best-seller among players drafted over the weekend, trailing only Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel, who got a two-day head start on the former SEC co-defensive player of the year. Sam, who became the first openly-gay player selected in the NFL draft...

Don’t Sam me bro!!!
Sexual deviancy is the “next big thing” in this country. Being an “openly gay” homosexual is really popular. I guess now we know why the Rams chose him. Money.
Turn burglars and the guilted running out to show support. By the end of the next season he’ll be largely forgotten.
So if the jersey is second to Jonny Manziel’s, then it’s hardly an “unprecedented” rate.
Yep. Although a lot of the purchases may be homo-politics.
How did we go from “the love that dare not speak its name” to “the love that will not shut the bleep up?”
Maybe unprecedented for a 7th round pick?
I can’t wait to be seen at the mall wearing one! /S
San Fran should start their own NFL team.... The San Francisco UNICORNS...
Well, it's unprecedented when compared with the jersey sales figures for every other NFL player who was drafted because he was openly homosexual.
Indeed they do. I still want proof on this article. I simply don’t believe it.
Every lib female will get one for her husband or boyfriend expecting that he will be thrilled to support the fight for social justice. They will be surprised. And imagine these same mothers getting one for their teenage sons thinking he’ll love wearing a jersey that will get him a lot of catcalls and laughs.
Interesting since Sams hasn’t even been assigned a number yet. The 52 he wore at Mizzou is already in use by another Rams player.
They’re going to feel real stupid when he gets cut and goes to another team.
The chances of him making the NFL are slightly higher than yours and mine. Only slightly.
BUT - I will give him this. He's smart. There wouldn't be 1/10th the buzz around him, if he'd kept his mouth shut. And - when he falls on his face (as is most probable) it won't be due to a lack of skills. It will be because of "homophobia" or some such nonsense, so he'll be able to save face, professionally.
I call bull. This is an anecdote from one or two locations — at best. Show us the numbers.
How about “?” or “TBD”?
I have been told by some high school kids that it is now considered “cool” to be gay. And this is at a fairly affluent school in a nominally conservative community.
We have really sunk to a low level as a country.
Yes but that accounts for less then 1 percent of the sales (population of gays is less then 1 percent and half of them won’t buy a jersey). What about the rest? I think the straights are buying in droves too. Crazy world.
Jerseys? Pah, that’s nothing. Wait ‘til his agent gets the endorsement contracts for signature model bike cups and open back pants.
Will the Rams now have rainbow colored helmets?
Gay. “Ram”. It fits.
I won’t be buying one
I do not approve of people defining themselves by their sex lives
I would not buy one of Wilt Chamberlain’s either
I would not buy one of that dumb Dunham girl either or a Fluke jersey
All you freaking exhibitionists, people really don’t give a flying flip about your inane sex lives. Shut up about it. It is a crashing bore.
> San Fran should start their own NFL team.... The San Francisco UNICORNS...
Well gays should like football. You’ve got 1 man standing behind 10 men that are bent over half the time...: )
Is the number on the jersey just under 70?
They don't have to spend money raising kids.
I hate to say it, but a few photographs, clinical and medical of course, of the aftermath of such behavior might change a few minds about how “cool” it is....kind of like how the reality of abortion as infanticide is made real by pictures of the innocent unborn.
> Yes but that accounts for less then 1 percent of the sales (population of gays is less then 1 percent and half of them wont buy a jersey). What about the rest? I think the straights are buying in droves too. Crazy world.
It’s the 44% that are not only tolerant but want their kids to grow up to be homo or bisexual in this country because they think it’s “cool” not being smart enough to realize that it’s promoted by the government as a depopulation tool.
Is this the “Blue Dress” model jersey with the authentic dribble stains?
“I have been told by some high school kids that it is now considered cool to be gay.”
I have been told the same...and seen it to some extent. If you go to a high school, you will see lots of boys with really tight jeans and shirts, talking in high pitched voices. Its a ‘look’...even if the kid is dating a girl, he still goes for the look.

So, is it because this jersey is now the new secret “signal”?
If so, it’s gonna quickly kill sales to anybody but homos.
Maybe I'll get a Don Jones jersey
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 their daughter had a black boyfriend, or they were planning a trip to Africa to adopt a black baby.
We have now entered an era where people will be bragging that they have solid connections with the queer world.
The will claim to have good friends who are queer, or their brother or uncle is a queer, or that they themselves have had a homo affair in the past or want to have one in the future.
It will be the cool thing.
Anyone who isnt queer, doesnt have queer friends or doesnt 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 rub elbows with queers and demonstrate they are progressives and part of the really cool people.
It will become almost impossible to get a good job, get hired by a government agency, get admitted to a top college, or find success as a sports figure or entertainer unless you can demonstrate that you are queer.
That was my thought. Gays going out and buying those in droves. When you don’t have a family, or really any responsibilities, its amazing how much disposal income you have.
a Ram Sam Sam!
Sam the Ram
Just waiting for the rest of it
I expect some wealthy gays and Hollyweird types are driving the sales. One thing that is true about the gay lobby: it is well funded.
I don’t understand why it’s popular to celebrate how someone has sex. For millenia, man has gone through life procreating normally, but there were no ticker tape parades or movies written to celebrate how we evolved through intercourse. Now all of a sudden you get a bunch of rugmunchers and butt-hole-rammers celebrating how they “love” one another physically, and the world stops to applaud them.
What the everliving Hell is going on in this world? Does anyone else not see this as abnormal?
yes, it is unfortunately
Hollywood the media and the entertainment industry are doing a great job at what they do and politicians are spineless about it, and religious leaders are falling too
