    Yeah, i know Sam is a feel-good story in this day and age (and i hope he has a long and fruitful career in the NFL), but he is NOT a good fit for this team, he will go to a 3-4 team.

    And it is with their evaluation that will be the official reason why the Bears and other teams pass on him.

    I don't care if he's gay or straight. But any team who drafts him not only gets Sam, they get a media circus. If you're okay with that, fine, but I think a lot of teams would just as soon do without it.

    I believe in live and let live, i dont give a monkey's what sexual persuasion he is, what skin colour he is, what religion he is, who he votes for or what he likes on his pancakes. I honestly couldnt give a fk. i understand its a first but can the media stop fawning all over him in this incredibly sanctimonious and patronising way. the guy is gay, not a war hero. its the 21st century for crying out loud. how many more tweets am i gonna have to read on this? how many more articles by people with zero connection with him falling overthemselves to prove how liberal and accepting they are, showering him with accolades?

    the guy is gay, big f'in deal!

    I mean.. 'Emery will evaluate his skillset as a football player' no sht sherlock! I'd thought his skills as a high-flying trapeze artist or perhaps as a carpenter would be more salient? or perhaps he wants to see if he can juggle 4 oranges while whistling dixie, or is going to grill him on the finer points of Euclid's theorums? Maybe that will prove more revealing about whether or not his presence on the team could help stop us getting gashed to sht in the run game every time we set foot on the field!?

    jesus, what has the world come to? does EVERY single person in the US feel compelled to comment on this lest they be seen to be some closet homophobe? what an obsessively neurotic bunch of self-loathers the west is becoming.

    If I'm a player for the team that picks him, Im not going to knock him for what he can or can not do on the field because of his sexual orientation.

    BUT, the locker room situation is going to be akward. Call me a homophobe, but that is the way I feel.

    This guy seems to be in the mold of SheMac, ie 3-4 OLB, and is considered a mid round pick.
    The team is looking at staying in the 4-3 front.
    Emery will take move back to 20's area and draft him.

    How did the weird locker room vibe affect Mizzou this last season?
