While they won’t admit it 100%, it was the Rams that strongly suggested than Michael Sam’s Oprah reality show be postponed.

Jeff Fisher gives the reasons why via the Sporting News.

“I think the Oprah thing, it caught us off-guard,” Fisher said. “Whenever it takes place, I think it’ll be a positive piece.”

Just not this summer.

“Not good for the locker room,” the coach said. “Nor Mike to get involved at this point.”

Just a few hours before the series was postponed Friday, a camera crew filmed a rookie workout, interviewed reporters and asked other media members to sign release waivers.

“We had a meeting and we got it resolved satisfactorily for everybody,” Fisher said. “The best thing for Mike right now is to just focus on football.”

So in essence, Oprah’s people were causing a distraction even though they said they wouldn’t. Funny how that worked out.
