The Dallas sportscaster is correct.

However, there is another part to that.
If the gay football player didn't want an issue made about his sexuality then he shouldn't have made an issue about his sexuality. It was no one's business but his own.

Sam is undersized to play defensive line in the NFL. A team would likely have to play him at a different position. So the third round projection has been based on his abililities from the beginning. I thought from the beginning it was a publicity stunt to up his stock since its so close to the draft. I don't think he got the reaction he was expecting

The first time someone asked him what he did last night he would have to choose between saying he was on a date with his boyfriend, or lying. If he told the truth, it WOULD have become an issue, even if he downplayed it. And lying? He SHOULDN'T HAVE TO.

The fact that he would even have to make this choice leads inevitably to headlines, and points out that the real issue is with the people that have a problem with it, and NOT with him or his lifestyle.

I agree that it should never be an issue, because it's no big deal. But that's not the world we live in.

My two cents: Dale Hansen is exploiting Michael Sam. Sam came out for his own reasons. Then the media storm took over. They just dragged on this story.

An opening gay football player 'coming out' was bound to happen. He won't receive any more or any less ridicule than he would in our sub-culture we call America. That's what the NFL is: a sub-culture...just like powerlifting.

I'm not the greatest fan of Roger Goodell but he has done an unprecedented job protecting the NFL brand. He'll most definitely do the same in embracing the first openly gay draftee in the NFL.

This won't affect his draft rating one bit. Don't believe me. Two words: Manti Te'o. All the pundits claimed he fell in the draft due to his 'imaginary girlfriend' debacle. Reality is he went 38th because he is a slow, undersized linebacker who benefited from a Notre Dame system that highlighted his strengths and hid his weaknesses. He then went on to perform lower than his second round pick.

Believe me: the talent board on NFL draft day does not have an asterisk for gayness. Just for talent and team leadership.
