Gives a whole new meaning to 'tight end' and 'wide receiver.'

This is great timing as the team that picks him will become the butt of jokes(pun intended)!

Yes, you are a complete loser. No doubt you displayed the same stupidity when Doug Williams won the Super Bowl, and would have said the same thing about Jackie Robinson.

Unless you're a closet queen, Michael Sam wasn't talking to you. He was talking to 30 million LGBTQ people.

No, you are trying to run the gay card on the same ticket as the race card..

do you actually think this is the same thing ?..

I laugh at that analogy..very simplistic and media driven..My statement is not stupid, like your lame attack, it is based on complete balance of "Who cares what your sexual preference is"... for what purpose is that a factor even being included in your decision to play football..

It's fair what that poster played, relevant to an opposing hand of bias, bigotry, and prejudice. Sam is showing his cards to the pro GMs, coaches, etc; rather than some 3rd party playing them.

The only thing simplistic is your complete punt of a reply.

OOOOOOOOk

So he shows his cards to the 3rd party because he expects them to not play them ?

Let us see what happens in the draft stock.

Right, I felt that way when Bishop Romney, et. al., keep going on about their heterosexual lifestyle choice of a spouse and kids. Sickening. Same for all those heterosexuals who either discuss romantic comedies or dating or beauty pageants or keep family photos on the desk at work.

Hey Cletus, sexual activity and sexual orientation are two different things. Get used to it.
