ignore him, he's trolling
Michael Sam was drafted #249 in the seventh round; 7th rounders have roughly a 20% chance of making an NFL team. There is not an 8th round for a reason. Sadly for Sam, no one has ever made an NFL team who was drafted #249. He is as close to Mr. Irrelevant as you can get.
Except that he is gay. So when Sam doesn't make an NFL team, queue up the gay mafia machine of tolerance to insist it was because Sam is gay.
It's about to get even more entertaining.
He'll be a footnote by Sept. No way he makes that roster.
What's it to you? Are you a rams fan or something?
First off, where do you even see me saying something like that? No, I'm not a rams fan. Frankly I'm not a huge NFL girl. I'm a Gator fan.
It's a general statement. Didn't realize I could only reply or have an opinion if I was a Rams fan...especially since this thread is in Too Hot and not in the sports area.
You seem outraged that the rams are going to keep this kid on their team despite his lack of talent just because he's gay. I'm wondering why you care. Hence why I asked if you're a rams fan.
Yes I'm outraged about it. Because it's a double standard, one that's seen repeatedly in cases of reverse discrimination, too. It's hypocritical and I'm good and tired of it. People can't have things both ways. This kid is going to be given a spot on a team BASED SOLELY on his sexuality and NOT on his football skills, which means another kid who likely DESERVES a spot based on TALENT will lose out. And if the idea is that everyone needs to be treated equally based on their skill and talent and not on race, sexual orientation, etc, then, yeah, I have a huge problem with it.
someone's trying to pick a fight
Please don't call me a troll.
You seem fairly angry about something that hasn't even happened.
It's actually what your were doing when you came into a thread screaming bigots. Your only intention was to seek a fight, unfortunately you got someone to bite.
He said you were trolling, not that you were a troll. Lighten up Francis...everyone new gets called that until a certain point.
And you're right, it hasn't happened yet. But the writing is on the wall, and if you don't think there will be large amounts of people screaming if he gets cut that it's happening because of his orientation and NOT because of his sexuality, then you have your head buried very deep in the proverbial sand.
You also seem to have preemptively ruled out the possibility that the SEC defensive player of the year might earn a spot on the roster by playing well.
Guilty LOL You're right, though, I probably shouldn't have. In my defense, it's been a long week.
Unless he does a miracle 180, he earned SEC defensive player of the year on a really bad year, and had a miserable combine showing, so no I don't think he's going to play well enough to make the short roster.
Please don't call me Francis.
And likewise, it seems CLEAR that a contingent of people seem ready to scream and stomp their feet insisting that if he makes the team it was because he's gay, not because he played well.
It was my commentary on the article you posted. I have no desire to fight you.
So it was the commentary in the article that made you come in and call everybody bigots? I'm just trying to understand your motives here since you came in with guns blazing,
I didn't call everyone bigots. I was referring to Doyel (what a gas bag) and Whitlock.
So totally bent out of shape that he kissed his BF on TV. Bigoted.
Perhaps you should have made that clear because it certainly doesn't come across that way. Secondly, that is totally off topic of the article, so you're really hijacking the thread.
You don't get the reference? It's a "Stripes" reference. Maybe you're too young.
And all I'm saying is that he needs to be judged on how he plays and not the agenda. However, it is looking more and more unlikely that he will be judged on his merits. Which, in essence, would be reverse discrimination.
And BTW, I'm a woman, a minority, and no I don't believe in affirmative action. You get there on your merits or not at all. His TALENT and how he PERFORMED do not show me that he can make the final roster.
