    A pair of high-profile NFL rookies crossed paths Saturday night -- a meeting highlighted by Michael Sam mimicking Johnny Manziel. Sam, the first openly gay active player in NFL history, mocked Manziel's "money sign" after sacking the Heisman Trophy winner in the fourth quarter of the St. Louis Rams' preseason victory over the Cleveland Browns.

    So if you haven't heard, this is interesting. It seems that Vito Cammisano, the youthful lover of Michael Sam, has some colorful ties. His father went to jail for running an underground gambling ring and his grandfather was a Kansas City mob boss. http://www.bet.com/news/celebrities/2014/05/14/michael-sam-s-boyfriend-has-mob-ties-porn-past.html?cid=socialMusicCeleb_20140514_23927304 But even more interesting is that Queerty claims Cammisano is the ex-lover of Austin Wilde, described on one pornography database as a 5'9" "muscular, shaved young stud" who has made 36 adult films, clocking a total of 56 scenes. Some of the films to his credit include the following, with summaries, follow. Don't click on...
  • ESPN Analyst Jason Whitlock On Michael Sam: ‘I’d Be Very Tempted To Cut The Guy Today’

    Whitlock pointed out that it seems like Sam is taking advantage of his position and it’s evident by him selling his own merchandise online: “I feel duped. Again, he’s got a website up selling t-shirts – it’s a merchandise store. This all looks like a cash grab more than a guy that wants to be a great football player as he has said. I don’t wanna come down too hard on Michael Sam, he comes from a very difficult background with his family and as we saw on draft day he was not surrounded by family as most people are...

    The news comes amid reports that the NFL and the St. Louis Rams were unaware of Sam’s docuseries plans and just two days after the Discovery-owned cable network officially greenlighted the reality show. ... “After careful consideration and discussion with the St. Louis Rams, the untitled Michael Sam project has been postponed, allowing Michael the best opportunity to achieve his dream of making the team,” said Erik Logan, president of OWN. “OWN is about elevating and empowering people to achieve their best. It’s clear that we, along with the world, recognize the important opportunity that Michael now has in this...
  • Clippers Owner Settles Discrimination Suit: Where's the Rush Outrage?

    Last month liberal media members armed with false allegations of racism went into a full-court press to prevent Rush Limbaugh from becoming an owner of the St. Louis Rams. On Tuesday, the owner of basketball's Los Angeles Clippers settled a multi-million dollar discrimination lawsuit wherein it was alleged that he had for years tried to keep blacks and hispanics out of his apartment buildings. This is actually the second such suit Donald Sterling has settled in the past four years. Despite this, America's television news media, which had a field day going after Limbaugh last month, completely ignored the story.

    Rams guard Harvey Dahl disagreed with the holding penalty called against him late in the St. Louis-Cincinnati matchup, and told the referee as much in a colorful manner—while the ref's mic was still open and broadcasting to the Edward Jones Dome. That earned him another penalty and sent CBS announcers Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf racing to see who could apologize first.

    In an October 28, 2009 House Judiciary Committee hearing, Congressman Steve King questions NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on comments he made regarding Rush Limbaugh. VIDEO Rush's Response to Commissioner Goodell's Answer: Of course, Goodell's a total weasel. He had no answer about the Dolphins' owners so wouldn't even address the question, and he got on his high horse about how McNabb is a fine player and a fine person and it has nothing to do with the color of his skin, when I (a) never said he was not a fine person; (b) never said he was a bad QB...

    Media Bias: Not long after pro football welcomed a convicted felon back on the playing field, Rush Limbaugh is dropped for his opinions from a group seeking to buy an NFL franchise. Won't someone throw a flag? When even Keith Olbermann says back off, you know the politically correct critics of the conservative icon and megaradio talk host's proposed part ownership of the St. Louis Rams are guilty of piling on. The prospect of the leading conservative voice in America participating in the purchase of a football team sent the liberal elites into cardiac arrest and into a frenzied campaign...

    Miami Herald ^ | 10-14-09
    Amid scrutiny from numerous decision makers in the NFL community, Dave Checketts released a statement on Wednesday announcing Rush Limbaugh has been dropped from the group seeking to purchase the St. Louis Rams. When it was revealed Limbaugh was part of the group to buy the Rams last week, several people, including NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, stated their ambivalence with the conservative radio personality having stock in the league. Checketts, also the owner of the St. Louis Blues, has decided to move forward on the bid without Limbaugh in the mix, according to the St. Louis Post- Dispatch, seemingly as...

    The N.F.L. has a policy for just about everything. Tucking in shirts. Use of cellphones or felt pens in celebration of self. Smarting off at inappropriate moments. Wipe that smirk off your face, mister, you’re not in junior high school anymore. And that’s just for owners. So it is no surprise that the N.F.L. also has a written policy governing the acceptance — and let us hope rejection — of potential owners. The current club owners seem to have the power to turn down somebody just because they don’t like the cut of his jib, whatever a jib is. This...

    Is NFL Players Association Chief DeMaurice Smith being forthright when he contends he wants to protect the sport from "discrimination and hatred" as he has claims, or is he engaging in partisan hackery, with the benefit of having the ear of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell? ESPN's Chris Mortensen shared Smith's concerns on the network's Web site Oct. 11 based on an e-mail Smith had sent to Mortensen which said the following: "I've spoken to the Commissioner [Roger Goodell] and I understand that this ownership consideration is in the early stages," Smith wrote. "But sport in America is at its best...

    Mathias Kiwanuka loves his former defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, but the Giants' defensive end says he will never play for Spagnuolo's Rams if Rush Limbaugh purchases the team. Kiwanuka and the Jets' Bart Scott made it clear Thursday that they would never play for the Rams or any team owned by the controversial conservative radio host. "All I know is from the last comment I heard, he said in (President) Obama's America, white kids are getting beat up on the bus while black kids are chanting 'right on,'" Kiwanuka told The Daily News. "I mean, I don't want anything to...

    A former college teammate of Pat Tillman – the NFL player who left football to join the Army and was killed in Afghanistan – has followed in his footsteps and joined the Marines. Jeremy Staat, who also played professional football, left the game at age 29 to endure the rigors of boot camp and life in the military. Staat was an offensive lineman at Arizona State University while Tillman played there, and the two were roommates. After college, Staat moved on to the National Football League, playing with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders, Seattle Seahawks and St. Louis Rams, plus...

    ST. LOUIS - The FBI has issued a "very vague" alert warning that people with ties to terrorist groups are downloading images of U.S. stadiums from the Internet, an agency official said Wednesday. The intelligence bulletin was sent in recent days to law-enforcement agencies nationwide. "There's no specific threat," said Bill Eubanks, head of the FBI's St. Louis office. "They just simply accessed the Web site." Images downloaded from www.worldstadiums.com. included the Edward Jones Dome, home to the NFL's St. Louis Rams, and Indianapolis' RCA Dome, he said. The FBI said it has contacted authorities in both places about security...

    LAKE FOREST (AP) After turning around the St. Louis Rams' defense, Lovie Smith is taking on the Chicago Bears. Smith was hired Wednesday as the Bears new head coach, and he will be introduced at a news conference Thursday, team spokesman Scott Hagel said. Smith was given a four-year deal to replace Dick Jauron, who was fired Dec. 29. "There's a position right for everyone," Smith said Tuesday when he came to Chicago for his second interview. "And I'm hoping this position is what is right for me." The Bears focused on Smith and Pittsburgh offensive line coach Russ Grimm...
