    Exactly. Michael Sam isn't even close to the first gay NFL player he's just the first who announced it before he even got drafted. The media are the ones who are behaving like he's some new attraction at a zoo.

    Oprah was gonna do an entire show devoted to chronicling his rookie season??? Oh please, spare me. She should be smarter than that and if it's been put on hold maybe she is. Just let the dude play football and leave his personal life out of it.

    4th you're right. The next thing the media is waiting for is something negative to happen so they can make a story of that too. What ever happened to just reporting new as opposed to manufacturing it to a point of almost scripting the outcomes?

    Oh yeah, I forgot. They already do that and they call them "reality shows". Reality? LMFAO!

    Is anyone else glad that J'Marcus Webb wasn't the first openly gay player? Jay would've been crucified for getting angry at his ineptitude.

    Have fun if you have to cut him you lose every which way on this BS. I still believe that was his main motif for coming out. I don't know much about his play but heard he just a fringe player at best so coming out could only help his cause. "See they didn't draft me because...." Now if this was Clowney that came out I would say he's has real balls. (I don't even know if that is pun? I guess if I would of said 'useless balls')

    I find it sad that the media is spending too much time with athletes that sleep with the same sex than athletes that perform on the field more.

    They can deal with rapists and murderers, but not a gay man.

    To be fair, Dungy never drafted a known rapist or a murderer either
