I think "Republican" Dwayne The Rock Johnson presented the award.

Getting an award for being homosexual. Crazy.

God help us. We’re not only flaunting sin in the street, we’re standing and cheering it as honourable.

I wish I could post one of those little vomiting guys.

I do not watch this crap, but DID notice the local Miami media was SOOOO HAPPY about this.

Does anyone know if Tim Tebow was ever given an ESPY?

Sure means something different than my days. What courage? Did he do it without KY jelly while looking at pictures of Oregon cheerleaders?

when accepting an award for his incredible courage.

Maybe Michael Sam really is incredibly courageous, I don't know. But what danger or persecution is he facing? It's hardly an act of bravery to come out as gay to the media in 2014 - this is not a little black girl trying to make her way through angry crowds to a newly desegregated school in the '50s.

And I'd buy Sam's claims that he just wants to be known as a football player if he didn't spend so much time and effort trying to make sure he's known as the incredibly courageous gay football player. This is a guy seeking celebrity, not recognition for his game.

Now, if his boyfriend is still the one who was reported to be the son of some Mafia figure, there might be some bravery involved in that.

awesome...soon they will be honoring the first gay couple to have open sex on the streets and call it groundbreaking. Something for the whole family to watch and to learn about acceptance and tolerance.

There’s a difference between courage and stupidity.

Committing sodomy is stupid, not brave.

Sort of like a golf trophy, I'm guessing.

There is no way the St. Louis Rams will be allowed to cut Michael Sam at least for the 2014/15 season.

Gay people eat feces. A fact. As it is a fact that less than 2% of the human race likes to eat feces and are AKA gay.

They are not a minority number wise, they are a blip on the statistical scale and such are not relevant in the scheme of things.

The reason that queers are in the news often is that the media has an unusually large number of this super minority in its employ. Because of that the queer issue is pushed and pushed not only by the queers themselves but they idiots around them who have been trained like circus animals to do what the queers want them to on demand.

As for me I really don’t care about the feces eaters, in the scheme of things they simply don’t matter.

I turned the ESPYs off after 20 minutes because of Drake’s foul mouth. So I did not see this.

I really think the left loves faggotry because of their deep belief in depopulation. Homosexuals not only die young, but can’t reproduce. They’re a twofer. The left loves baby murder for the same reason.

Many/most of them believe the planet should have no more than 100 million people, all as “enlightened” as they are, of course. Without that “enlightenment,” leftists kill in a wholesale way, by the millions, when given the power to do so.

The real reason the Anti-Christian Left latched onto the gay movement is because, they know the more homosexuality gets legitimized, the less legitimized Christianity becomes in the eyes of the masses.

As a Bama fan, I must admit that seeing Michael Sam at the ESPYs is even more disgusting than seeing Auburn beat Bama via the Kick Six. (I never thought I would say that)
