Posted on 05/13/2014 1:37:09 PM PDT by chessplayer
While Tuesday's Washington Post covered ESPN's elaborate planning to broadcast "a kiss that rocked the sports world" -- after openly gay Michael Sam was drafted, and they don't mean the later cake-shoving kiss that seemed a little scarier given Sam's size -- the debate over the kiss submerged the flagrant liberal editorializing that ESPN aired a few minutes before the Rams selected Sam with the 249th pick.
ESPN reporter Chris Connelly (formerly with MTV) uncorked pre-emptive anger, that if Sam went undrafted, the verdict of "history" (read: liberals) "will be derisive laughter, aimed at a league thus deemed by many to be unworthy of its place in contemporary society." Connelly attacked "tired old" prejudice and praised Sam for "weeding out the hopelessly hidebound" teams of the NFL.
Well, it was obvious Sam was selected because he’s gay, not because he has any talent. Just think of all the other, better players who didn’t make it so this loser could be drafted.
The “S” in ESPN stands for “sodomite” now.
Isn't that special?
Does everyone realize that drafted players don’t necessarily make the team coming out of training camp?
The activists pushing for a homosexual player are all happy right now, but, let’s see how camp goes. Suppose the Rams cut him before the season. It is not unusual for a last round drafted player to not make the team.
So, then, will the Rams be homophobic and all that, if Sam doesn’t make the team coming out of training camp? That will be the next event to watch by the politically correct crowd.
Sam is smart or has some smart advisors.
He’s gone from an unknown player who at best was probably a UFA to a household name with Visa endorsement deal and currently the #2 selling NFL rookie jersey.
Well, the NFL is worthy of contemporary society. It’s not worthy of my God though. I try not to afflict my spirit with trash like the NFL.
I had read rumors that the Rams were told they better sign Sam otherwise there would be hell to pay..he isn’t even talented, heck I probably have more football talent than he does, but he was chosen just because he is a fag and that is the ONLY reason
They can never cut him
Do you mean this old white dude (ESPN reporter Chris Connelly) with the Obama superior attitude problem is going to be the moral authority on 'contemporary society'?
I used to watch sportcenter a lot. But then it got all goofy with the Stuart Scott speak, and they covered all kinds of crap I didn’t care about.
I started watching Mike & Mike in the mornings. Safe, simple, sports based, with no gotcha interviews.
Now, Mike & Mike is adhering to the agenda. If it’s gay, or racial in nature, they are going to talk about it until you want to throw up.
I watch Golf Central. I know, it’s owned by NBC, but when I tune in, it’s about golf 90% of the time.
To hell with ESPN.
The NFL already has every other kind of lowlife. There are certainly queers playing in it now.
Before joining ESPN, Connelly worked for Rolling Stone Magazine, as a music critic. During the 1980s he also served as Special Music Correspondent for Good Morning America, which involved interviewing the music stars of the day. Next Connelly spent thirteen years at MTV (19882001). He hosted the pre-shows for the MTV Movie Awards and prior to that, The Big Picture, a weekly show with features and movie reviews. He was also an editor and reporter for Premiere magazine, eventually becoming Editor in Chief. After six months however, Connelly resigned in a dispute over journalistic integrity after the owner of the magazine reportedly asked that he quash a story that unfavorably portrayed a business associate.
Yeah, if he was not drafted, the world would say in the future “Michael who?”.
ESPN is the MSNBC of sports.
the queer agenda is to destroy every aspect and institution of American life and culture.
It is fitting that ESPN is almost a contraction of “Espanol”; the desperation with which they are trying to get Hispanics to eat up American football is pathetic. Whatever people think of soccer, I still have more respect for people that refuse to be bombarded with commercials; Hispanics will never settle for American football.
ESPN reporter. E:60 round tabler. ABC News contributor. MTV News alum. Premiere magazine vet.
The ESPN crews seemed to get really, really aroused by Michael Sam’s face-sucking make-out session.
That’s all I need to know about ESPN. Bunch of creepy, degenerate perverts in charge over there. I wouldn’t let a single one of them near a child.
I think the Rams were either paid by the NFL to pick Sam, or possibly were spared some sanction they may have deserved if they'd agree to take him. Consequently, he won't be cut either under the same deal.
Of course this could just be conspiracy theory thinking on my part. That's the trouble with affirmative action hires. No one believes they'd have been hired for what they bring to the team.
the queer script has Sam being named MVP this year.
ESPN Denounced NFL as ‘Unworthy of Contemporary Society’ If Sam Was Undrafted
The NFL IS ‘Unworthy of Contemporary Society’. And has been for some time. And that fact has noting to do with Sam.
No way they can cut him. They would be crucified endlessly in the media. They’re stuck with him.
a muslim queer in the oval office. SMH
Are there really people out there who believe their life’s goal should be “to be worthy of contemporary society”?
Is it possible this whole thing was orchestrated?
There has been talk in recent years about what reactions we would see, if we saw openly gay players in major league sports.
And, we learned long after the fact, in the case of Branch Rickey and Jackie Robinson, that Rickey was looking for a Negro ballplayer to integrate major league baseball.
So, I’m thinking that, behind the scenes, the powers that be have been looking to find their first openly homosexual NFL player.
But we may not learn all of the details of how this came about, until years from now, when books are written, and movies made about this “historic” event.
Geeze, at least Jackie Robinson could play ball.
Can you imagine if Jackie Robinson shoved a cake in someone’s face and gave them a big wet kiss? These people have no sense of the “history” they talk about.
What history will remember is what a bunch of self-absorbed jackass these jerks were.
"the queer script has Sam being named MVP this year".
MVP in five, four, three, two.........
I used to be a sports nut but, thanks in part to this stuff but mostly to their sense of entitlement and arrogance, no longer. It’s even trickled down to college sports.
They can count on the members of their diverse audience to pay their bills.
you got it
“Good Morning America” correspondent Chris Connelly talked with horror novelist, turned religious fiction writer, Anne Rice on Thursday about how friends reacted to her becoming a “Jesus freak.” Though the interview was a friendly one, Connelly did ask, in a jovial tone, what it was like when friends said, “’Oh, my gosh. She’s out of her mind. Oh, no. Look, she’s become a ‘Jesus freak.’”
Given that Sam was the 249th pick, there probably weren’t many better players that were passed over in favor of him. I suspect he probably wouldn’t have been picked at all if he preferred the company of women.
“I think the Rams were either paid by the NFL to pick Sam, or possibly were spared some sanction they may have deserved if they’d agree to take him. Consequently, he won’t be cut either under the same deal.”
You could be right.
Roger Goodell has a brother who’s gay.
I would gladly boycott ESPN, the NFL and the NBA... unfortunately I’ve already stopped watching them.
It’s a liberal jock sniffer thang, you wouldn’t understand...
In another age the fact he was drafted by the Rams would have been fodder for late night TV.
What a bunch of histrionic dickweeds.
Of course it was orchestrated..same thing happened with Jason Collins..Ive watched the NBA playoffs and not ONCE have I seen Jason Collins play..I haven’t even seen him at all, probably sitting his ass on the bench..he averaged 2 points a game before he “came out” he only came out because he wanted to be drafted by a winning team..he has been a bench warmer his ENTIRE career, no one has ever wanted him, but when he comes out as gay all of a sudden teams want him, for publicity..to show they are “tolerant” same thing with Michael Sam, he came out so that he could be on a winning team, to get publicity for himself and his homo agenda
I can now see why I never watch ESPN. It’s the girlyman channel for “openly gay” homosexuals.
In the old days Rush could have told us the inside story of this all but now he can't. Not that he's afraid for himself but any revelation would immediately make his source a target of revenge from the homoroids. I'm sure he knows the story.
“I watch Golf Central. I know, its owned by NBC, but when I tune in, its about golf 90% of the time.”
Golf is about the only thing I watch on TV anymore. I imagine it won’t be long that the first openly gay hacker will come out of the closet and ruin that too.
Well when this mediocre player gets destroyed playing a real game against real men then what will they say?
Are they going to sue the player that takes him out?
Or will everyone be required totackle him nicely?
And if he gets AIDS are you going to let him play and bleed all over everyone?
