Video Dallas Sportscaster Goes In On NFL Officials For Saying Michael Sams Stock Will Be Hurt On Dra - YouTube
This despite discrimination being illegal in many of their cities.
But look, if about 5% of pro athletes were openly gay and were truly a non issue, you think i'd root only for them? Come on lol. It's the *total* lack of representation that gets immediately noticed and received as "You are not welcome here." I certainly wish it were a non issue, but what i don't see is any criticism by you or others here of the homophobic jackasses who created this. You seriously just posted that it's sheer coincidence that none has come out till now and there's nothing the league could do.
Beyond that, many face rejection from sports at a young age, often because of their sexuality, then turn on TV as adults and yeah, same bully **** is going on (minnesota special teams coach only latest example), still not welcome. That's the thing. I rather like football, but not when being so disrespected. Went to a Lions game once. Boy was that a mistake. Time for the NFL to clean up its act and confront its bigotry.
The reason you see such attention on this is because this is a market segment that's been totally ignored and disrespected. No more. Whatever team Sams ends up with will have a cult following.
