I am sure the anonymous Rams player is saying what a lot of people within the Rams organization is thinking.
Here is the quote via ESPN.
“Sam having a reality show does raises some eyebrows, maybe a distraction.”
I don’t like anonymous quotes if you have something to say, you have to say it with your chest. But, if you say anything about Michael Sam you get suspended, fined and reprimanded, so it is a catch-22 situation. In those instances, it is just better to not say anything.
I am not saying Sam doesn’t care about football, but that isn’t the only thing he cares about. So, when he said it was all about football and he didn’t want attention it wasn’t sincere. He cares about his brand, marketing and making some money off being a “gay” football player. I am sure he wants to help others by putting his story out there, but he needs to be more honest about his motivations, so no eyebrows will have to be raised.
