    Just wait until the Jets fans get their hands on him too.

    That's how I read it too.

    Re: Do you agree or disagree with Tony Dungys's comments about gay player Michael Sam

    First, I have a TON of respect for Tony Dungy as a coach and a person (from what I know of him). But I have a tiny bit less of the latter for him today.


    I am getting a little tired of people saying the same thing:

    'Good luck to him - but I don't want him. Too distracting.'

    That's a little like saying 'I love blacks - I just don't want them at my party...too distracting.'

    Since no openly homosexual man has EVER played in the NFL, then there is no way possible that they can know how distracting he will be.
    Maybe he will be distracting. Maybe not at all. Maybe he will aid the team's bottom line as LGBT fans/non-fans buy the teams paraphernalia in huge numbers, all over the nation in support of drafting him.

    And multi-millionaire head coaches/GM's should have a little more on their mind then just winning and losing...like doing what is right once in a while. Furthering the cause of humanity should creep into the equation sometimes - and since LGBT represent probably well over 10% of the population...that is a lot of humanity.


    I am a HUGE Dallas Cowboys fan and I am straight.

    But I would have LOVED for the Cowboys to have been the ones who drafted him...even if he turned out to be a huge distraction. Just so I could feel a little bit more pride in 'America's team' (no - I don't like that nickname either).


    Btw, it's lucky everyone did not say that about Jackie Robinson.


    Finally, I am not the slightest bit interested in debating this. If you don't agree with me - I don't care. And if you do - then there is nothing to debate.

    I am simply stating this to add my opinion to the discussion.

    Re: Do you agree or disagree with Tony Dungys's comments about gay player Michael Sam

    Based on what I read that he said, I agree with him. The guys in the league will probably not care, as long as he does his job and helps the team win. I feel that if he is overrated, and is a drain on the team, THAT will get the other players on his team a lot more upset than what he does in his own bedroom. Of course, there's always going to be some dingdong (pun intended) that will get his nickers in a wad about a gay guy being in the locker room.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    I don't often side with the "Gay Mafia" but in this case we're talking about a fully grown man who has spent his entire life either playing, coaching, or commentating on a children's game, basically one step removed from professional hopscotch.

    It would be no real loss to humanity if the "GM" was successful in their illicit endeavor.

    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    I agree with Dungy 100%...Anyone who thinks this guy won't be a distraction in the locker room is smoking something also if he is cut people will say it is because he came out when it just might relate to his football ability.

    Even if he makes the team, I doubt you will hardly ever see him on the field. Slow and undersize for the NFL.
