Bisexual NFL Player: Michael Sam Doesn’t Speak For Us

Michael Sam

Michael Sam was wrong in saying that other gay NFL players didn’t have as much courage as he has. Deciding what to reveal in your personal life regardless of your sexual orientation is a personal choice that has less to do with courage and more to do with if you want your information out there for the public to see.

No one should feel like they have to hide, but if they choose not go on Oprah, they shouldn’t be branded as cowards. That is the message one Bisexual NFL player decided to share with TMZ.

The player — who didn’t want to be identified by name — has played in the league for several seasons and says he’s open about his sexuality with close friends.

But when the player read Sam’s recent comments about gay men in the league — he was offended.

Specifically, the player was upset when Sam said … “I respect the players that did reach out to me and had the courage to tell me that they were also gay, but they do not have the same courage as I do to come out before I even played a down in the NFL.”

The player’s response — “As a bisexual man, I just feel like Michael Sam does not speak for all gay men.”

“He has his own opinion … but DON’T say that we don’t have the courage to come out. It’s totally wrong. Just speak for yourself. No one else.”

“It’s no one’s business what my sexuality is. You should like me for me … not for who I choose to be with.”

Despite those opinions, the player says he believes Sam DID get a fair shot to make a team — “I just don’t think he performed well.”

The player also said he didn’t think teams and GMs aren’t totally comfortable with having a player who is gay on their roster. With that being said I am sure they aren’t totally comfortable with women beaters, alcoholics and drug addicts either, but they deal with if you can play. That is something Michael Sam hasn’t come to understand yet.
