You have to know what you don't know.
I, being a season ticket holder for the mu tigers was very proud of our sec defensive player of the year. I enjoyed his seasons at Missouri. He had to come out. Most of columbia knew he was gay. He wore rainbow wrist bands and frequented the gay bar. I am proud of my town for not making it a big deal. That said the news was gonna drop. I am glad he got to announce it on his terms. Unfortunately he is to short for dline and to slow for lb in pros. Hopefully he makes special teams and practice squad. It is news b/c he is breaking barriers. Again I am very proud of our Michael Sam.
You said he came out to boost his draft stock, but he fell right where the so called analysts had him going which was late in the 6-7th rounds.
And camera crews aren't with 7th round players, you are also correct. But Michael Sam transcends the round he was drafted in. When you are the first in something, people are curious, people want to know what is going on. That's just the gist of it in today's world. Had he been the 24th openly gay player drafted, no one would've cared. But being the first, that is saying something and that is worth celebrating.
I'm so glad that Jackie Robinson didn't accomplish his feat in the age of Twitter.
It's always interesting to me to hear people say "it's about the game" not about anything else, or maybe not even a football game but life in general. But those people are usually straight, white, males who have the luxury of not being the first to do anything.
You are correct. I am a straight white male. Saying you football knowledge exceeds your MMA isn't really saying much.
Tinkerbell? Was that your pet name during your time away?
Don't kid yourself. Saka. Everyone knows your morally superior routine on here. He ain't the first gay player. If you would actually use your brain instead of trying to come off as better as everyone else or throw lame insults like tinkerbell out there then maybe you wouldn't cry and bitch and take your ball and go home so often. I don't give a fuck that he went in the 7th close to where he projected( actually that was the high most thought undrafted). My point is the timing of his announcement. If you can't see how the timing was just him using being gay as a benefit that's your problem. If you are truly going to ignore the fact that I said its not about being gay but that I am tired of people using anything to get media exposure to compensate that they are not that good. Also I do believe I even said its an injustice that the Rams and fisher all but said they drafted him because he was gay. Sorry but he should be drafted on his skills alone. His preference of hole or pole shouldn't matter.
And I'll say it again, I think you are wrong for saying him coming out was used as a advantageous tool to get him drafted. He isn't the first gay football player drafted? Who was then?
Tinkerbell was the name I got in prison. How did you know? Man I sucked all the dicks there. 100's of them.
