    And why isn't Colt Brennan or Dan LeFevour lighting up the NFL? You see how many passing yards they had in college?

    Don't say that name.

    Redskins fans basically created what was jokingly referred to as the Cult of Colt back when he was on the team. The fervency and desire for the 3rd string guy to become the starter had never been so strong.

    But did you see all his offense in college? I thought that automatically translated to success in the NFL.

    That's a axiomatic truth that reaffirms itself daily on this very forum.

    2.) whats he have to do with equal rights?
    3.) again none of this happened so you continued strawman continue to fail and get destroyed.

    still waiting for that qoute by the way, why do you keep dodging this request.
    What does Michael Sam being picked in the 7th round have to do with " equal rights " ??

    He's a gay man first, a future roster cut second.

    Ok I'm going to enter this stupid thread right about here. Can someone tell me exactly what "barrier" Sam broke, and what exactly was this triumph over bigotry in the NFL? Don't any of you libs realize that you're being fed this narrative but in reality your mind just assumed that a sport known for masculinity was somehow automatically discriminatory of gay athletes? What a crock of ****, and you should all be ashamed that you fell for it hook line and sinker. Just because "some" players in this league or that league have made openly derogatory remarks concerning gays, it is in no way more or less prevalent than in any other sector of society. Hell even famous libs that make the same comments and get their usual pass make the same comments and at the same frequency, and the particular sport or line of work, or standing in society is not a very good indicator of institutionalize discrimination. There has never been a ban on homosexuality in any sport that I can tell, so would you all please stop with the narrative force fed to you and start thinking for yourselves for once in your life.

    Continue on with your false narrative if you wish, but please keep the facts in the forefront when discussing this Michael Sam thread.

    Congrats Mr. Sam! another hurdle over come. Nothign much needs said on this.
    Like all draftees I hope you have great success on the field. Good luck!



    I read about a young black man that had to overcome hurdles in his life to become a Rams draft pick.
