Oprah acquires rights to Sam series
ESPN ^ | May 14, 2014 | Darren Rovell

Posted on 05/14/2014 6:05:16 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) announced on Wednesday that it had purchased the rights to a documentary series that will follow the life of Michael Sam. Terms were undisclosed, but sources said that negotiations to make the deal took two months.

Sam became the first openly gay man to be taken in the NFL draft when he was picked Saturday in the seventh round by the St. Louis Rams.

Cameras for the network were with Sam when he received the call that he was drafted and will follow him through training camp as he tries to make the team.

The network said the working title for the series is "The Untitled Michael Sam Project."

It won’t draw any viewers that she doesn’t already have.

It wasn’t enough that she bashed and lied about Ronald Reagan in “The Butler,” now she has to promote the homosexual “lifestyle.”

What he will bring to the long tradition of fruity NFL celebration dances will change the game forever. Finally we will see gyrating self-congratulatory mincing performed by a 250+lb dude and be absolutely correct when we think ‘that guy has to be gay.’

I think this could be described as a “One Trick Pony”, but I could be wrong, maybe his entire ‘appeal’ is not soley based on gayness. So now all the Ram decisions will be scrutinized and catagorized by non professionals. Great.

Its’ working title is “The Tight End that Wasn’t”... Seriously, when this overhyped social experiment gets released before the season starts, she can lead the protests against his obviously bigoted coaches.

“Every butt slap will be debated.”

And every time a butt slap isn’t bestowed on Sam in an obvious butt slapping situation.

Just think about the first openly gay MLB position player, maybe the most individually judged position in the big three pro-sports. It has to be coming down the line. There will be 4-6 discrete regular chances to judge if pitches inside are intentional and on account of his gayness, not to mention how the ump calls balls and strikes on him.

PS I had never really thought the struggle of black people for equality to be equivalent to the desire of homosexuals to flaunt their lifestyles.
But if Dohprah says so, it must be so.

Gee, just think a year ago “Capt Courageous” outted himself to his team but didn’t want them to tell

Now we know why . . . $$$

Again, will the NCAA look into the relationship between Sam and his “handlers”?

I'd say that's a given. Jason Collins got to sit with the First Uruk Hai at the SOTU.

I hate to think of the things carved into Lincolns Bed by the guests in the past 5 years.

He will be watching from the men's room. He is not an NFL talent. He did only 17 presses at 225. A 4.91 40. A 25" vertical. High school players do better.

You have to admit, he (or his advisors) is brilliant.
The guy is famous, has a lucrative endorsement deal with Visa Card, and is likely good for several years at NFL “minimum wage” $420,000 for a 7th rounder.

Without the gay thing he’d be selling insurance or used cars likely making about 25 grand a year.

Yep! Every time he gets brushed back or hit the pitcher will be under suspicion of being homophobic.

When Doprah saw Sam getting humped by the draft, she paid the pimp Rams to draft him to keep her deal from being instantly blown.

HAHAHAHAHA This whole Al Queerda SAM story is so manufactured. This proves it. First he announces he’s gay to get the guaranteed gay pick. Then, he cries about not getting picked in the first round. NOW Oprah is making a documentary about him!!! Biggest phony fake collection of bovine excrement since global warming and Obama.

I KNEW something was staged when I first saw the draft pick/kiss video. All these professional TV people were clapping and taking video. Sam himself looked over at a camera after one kiss as if to say “did you get that”?

The whole time a “documentary” (reality show) was being filmed. We all know those shows are total set ups. Come on shoving cake into each other’s faces and kissing? No sincere gay man just humbly trying to make it in the NFL would purposely come on that strong right away and allow a TV show to distract him.

Sam knows he isn’t going to make the team unless that is setup too. He certainly isn’t putting maximum effort into football.

This could blow up in her face. There are two serious trains of thought about Sam. One is, teams didn't want to take him, not because he is homosexual, but because he isn't a very good pro prospect, and nobody wanted to take the heat for cutting him.

The other is, according to a number of young women of his acquaintance, he is not homosexual at all, but a good actor, who used the "gay" thing to cynically enhance his celebrity status and hence his marketability.

If the latter proves out, Oprah could be headed for the pratfall of the ages.
