u can kind of tell he's possibly a homosexual by looking at him. he's got really some really fair features with them doey eyes, thick eye lashes, pouty lips and relatively delicate nose

proud of this dude

I doubt the GMs are actually homophobic.
They know that an openly gay player would offend players like Vilma and ruin the locker room

GM or player, I'm just wondering who has a Hardaway moment. As for offending teammates that kind of thinking kept black people out of major leagues. And it's an issue that everyone eventually got over. Open homosexuals are going to be in our major team sports. As the first of them Smart may have a few speed bumps but our society is growing both more tolerant of gays as well as intolerant of homophobia. So long as Smart is good enough for the NFL he's going to get a chance and have a career.

Players better control their opinions because the last I checked you're not allowed to discriminate in the workplace.

you fkd up sammy .. should've kept your queer fantasies to yourself .. the nfl isn't a queer friendly type of environment .. one of the more masculine type sports .. wtf would you wanna announce that shit ? .. I predict he'll get drafted in later rounds and then fade away eventually .. and I predict he'll score a sub 10 on the wonderlic .. dumbass

In the Marcus Smart thread you're on some "retarded, low iq, ghetto trash blah blah blah" and now this. You're a f*cking idiot.

Good for him. This was only a matter of time. He'll hear it from opposing fans when on the road, but he sounds like he has the mental makeup to take it in stride.

More of a 3-4 pass rushing OLB than a DE. Small.

I don't think its a bad thing that Michael Sam is gay, and I hope he doesn't have any problems in the NFL.

My personal opinion is that he should not have mentioned it unless he was asked. But, then again Im not gay, so I don't know what kind of issues go into making a decision like that.

I think there will be the occasional homophobe who will speak out and put his foot in his mouth, but i don't think it will be a major issue

Missouri tight end Eric Waters, apparently tired of some parts of the narrative, took to Twitter to tell, well, the entirety of what it was like for Sam.

"Half of y'all posting these pics saying how proud you are. But most of y'all was the ones talkin s--t behind his back in the locker room," Waters tweeted (without the hyphens). Soon after, he followed up with this:

https://twitter.com/E_Waters81/statu...21420364181504

Translation: Not every teammate was behind Sam.

If his NFL teammates keep their homophobia private and some snicker behind his back that's probably the best they can hope for.

This dude must really love men, his full name consists of two common male names.

His own name is a personal fantasy for him.

This comes out during the slowest sports news week of the year... makes sense. I suppose ESPN and/or the gay community wanted him to do it. Very brave of him, but Jackie Robinson he is not.

I got your pattern figured out .. you love insulting others when they're right and you're wrong .. keep it comin'

What are you babbling about? Damn you are one stupid individual. Look at what you posted. So you obviously have issues about black males from the inner city. And now you have issues with homosexuals. Its clear as day in how you post here.

As far as nfl not being gay friendly. It is what it is, but as long as you produce on the field? Things you did, you are get swept under the rug. This is a fact. Brandon Marshall a woman beater. No one gives a damn anymore even after espn outside the lines exposed him. He catches footballs and is considered an elite WR in the game. He's producing. Riley Cooper in a used the n word. Nothing was doctored or taken out of context. He said it, and said it to another person of color out of pure rage. Some teammates said they couldn't respect him. Some anonymous league official said he wrote his own death certificate no one is going to pick him up now (it was assumed Eagles would cut him). Video footage of teammates alienating Cooper at practice. Awkward, weird, cringe worthy. Fast forward to today, he comes off a career year and is a free agent. He will be picked up and rewarded financially. Probably by the Eagles. Plenty of scumbags in the NFL.

Players will talk about Michael Sam behind his back about being gay. Much like some of his teammates did at Mizzou. In fact Sam said he sensed on two occasions the rumors swirling on campus last year before he decided to tell his coaches/teammates privately. And at the Senior Combine when a few mentioned it to him. So he took it upon himself to address his sexuality before rumors ran rampant. So I dont see how Sam cant last in the NFL because of his sexuality and someone like Riley Cooper can. As long as he produces him being gay will be swept under the rug just like the other idiots in the NFL.

And lets see during the draft where he goes. 3-5 projected. And what relevance does his Wonderlic score have to do with any of this? Because you disagree with him coming out now he lacks intelligence? Again you post STUPID SHIT HERE, why dont you question your own intelligence jackass.

Nothing you said in your post was "right" it was ignorant babble laced with ASSumptions. Like I said for someone who bags on others intelligence you sure do say dumb shit.
