    I thought this was better off in TH for obvious reasons.

    This guy is going to have a miserable camp. He's already pissing of teammates he's yet to even work with. Lose your gayness as your leading public issue and focus on business young man.

    He's going to use his gayness as a crutch and a way to be an activist.

    While I applaud him being out in a traditional "macho" setting. It time to concentrate on making the team. Fair or not young gay athletes are going to look up to him and he's not doing them any favors by getting distracted and getting cut.

    The fat white liberal mediots at ESPN are definitely rooting for him as an activist. Sports coverage? Who cares. Wait, Sterling just said what now?

    I wish the kid luck, but ESPN has already beaten this story, like every other story they latch onto, into the ground. I don't need more media coverage, please make it stop

    If you think it's bad now, wait 'til Sam doesn't crack the starting lineup or-heaven forbid-gets cut from the team.

    My thought was not a suit but just to cash in as fast as he can because he may think his NFL future is very limited. I can think of no other plausible reason to do this to is future co-workers.

    What's going to happen if a Rams opponent does this during a game (and knowing football players, somebody will).

    Surprising to say the least. When I saw Oprah's name attached to it, I assumed nothing would get in the way of it and Oprah getting everything she wanted out of it. Do you have a link?

    This has nothing to do with bigotry and everything to do with a kid who is going to be overhyped and kept on a team BECAUSE of his sexuality and fears of backlashes, versus any actual talent on the field.
