    Exclamation Michael Sam



    Ok, yes, the cake make-out session got me a bit uncomfortable, but that's because I'm not acclimated to it. Nonetheless, this seems like a positive development for society and I want to know your reaction to this moment?

    Gotta admit Sam has guts to come out before all this pressure of playing in the league.

    I wish him well, they probably dragged that make out session a bit longer than necessary, but that's ESPN for ya.

    The Rams and Fisher are going to be scrutinized a bit from this point forward in regards to Sam.

    Yeah, the media loves to crowd the social issues like mosquitos to human flesh.

    But in the 7th round, you can't make a football move that will get scrutinized too much.

    i think its clear that teams viewed Sam as somewhat of tweener. I would think Sam would do well, if not as a starter, then as a special team ace.

    I was actually hoping we draft Sam in 6th round as a guy to replace #51 that left last year. No, not because of their political or social view, but i think Sam would be relentless guy that would do anything asked of him.

    I wonder what it must feel like to be gay, or how people became gay. What a mind fuck

    Remember when you became straight?

    Pretty similar.

    When did you wake up and decide you're straight?

    I meant how the gay traits were created/inherited. Not that it was a conscious decision for him to be gay.

    Poutine is probably my favorite food on Earth...

    I'm with Lowrider. Man-Man PDA leaves me feeling a bit uneasy. PDA beyond holding hands, quick pecks, hugs etc does in any combination of Man, Women and in between, but even the quick peck leaves me feeling a bit uneasy. Woman-Woman, whole different story.
    It's unfair, it is however benign. It will, I'm certain, fade over time, it's simply a shock to the system. The original kiss, the first time it was shown, was very innocuous and did very little to bother me. I do however feel a bit bombarded that it is everywhere, and the "seemingly staged made for TV cake moment" was a bit intentionally over the top for me.
    It is what it is, it had to happen to get where we are going, and there is NOTHING inherently wrong in ANY of it... Not in a million years would I say it doesn't belong on TV, even over the air, free daytime TV, but it's simply something that some people will have to witness more then a few times to be entirely comfortable with, which is EXACTLY why it should have been done.

    I feel a bit bad for Sam that he "has to?" be THAT GUY... someone HAD TO BE that guy... I guess he chose to, but it was almost certainly a generous choice. If it was a choice made for personal gain, shame on him, but I doubt it.
