For someone who says he just wanted to be treated like everyone else and  to just see him as a football player, Michael Sam sure has a lot of  extracurricular activities going on that has nothing to do with the NFL, but more to do with him being gay.

He has ESPN at his house, he is selling gear, he is talking to People magazine and now this. According to ESPN, he will be featured in a multi-part documentary on the OWN Network. For those of you who don’t know, that is owned, no pun intended by Oprah Winfrey.

I don’t have a problem with Sam trying to cash out, but don’t say you are just concentrating on being an NFL Player when you are blatantly capitalizing off the fact you are the first openly gay NFL player.

According to OutSports.com via Larry Brown Sports they were filming at the draft, so Sam has been manipulating us the whole time.

A crew from OWN was at Sam’s draft day Saturday in San Diego where ESPN broadcast him kissing his boyfriend on national TV after he was drafted. The crew will follow Sam throughout the late spring and summer as he attempts to earn a spot on the Rams roster.

That is hypocritical no matter your sexual preference.

  1. The hypocrisy of the media and human beings towards gays is overwhelming. There is no doubt about that. And there is no doubt that Mr. Sam was drafted in the 7th round because he is a GAY MAN and he had the audacity to actually come out with it with no shame. I don’t doubt that for a second. This is new territory just like it was when Black people were making their strides toward equality in the 50s and 60s. Michael Sam has every right to capitalize FINANCIALLY on this opportunity just make sure the focus stays on football and I think he will be successful. We live in an unfair world bro. Life is not fair and that doesn’t make it right and it doesn’t mean you have to accept it but it is what it is. If he works hard he will make it in my opinion whether he’s gay or not. I, as a heterosexual black man, have struggled with this issue from biblical stand point but I realize my job is to accept everyone for who they are and not judge. If we believe being gay is a sin then we better be just as outraged about having 6 baby momas (premarital sex), stealing, killing which by the way are all in the bible as well. So with that being said I have to treat everyone with respect whether I agree with their views or not.
