Re: Rams cut the gay guy

They didn't cut him because he was gay. They cut him because they were already set on the line and he is basically a one trick pony. St L didn't need one.

Re: Rams cut the gay guy

Sam is a casualty of the numbers game; STL is loaded at D-line. He did play pretty well in the preseason, but it wasn't like he was facing the 1's or much of the 2's, for that matter. I believe he should get a shot at another roster that doesn't have the depth or talent on the D-line that STL has. It ain't us...we have plenty of D-line depth and talent. He should be getting a call from Jerry Jones shortly. That Dallas D is putrid, and that D-Line ain't nothing to brag about. Plus nobody likes a media circus like Mr. Jones.

However, some will conclude it was simply because he is an openly gay man. Sad. You know this is inevitable. Hopefully Sam has the dignity and grace not to make this claim himself. But some talking head will claim this as a fact.

I feel a big, gigantic wave of backlash coming soon from a news media outlet near you. Help us all...

I hear San Francisco is interested. Not the team, the city.

Re: Rams cut the gay guy

Apparently some didn't catch my sarcasm. Every story we heard about Sam mentioned him being gay ad nuseum, espn was obsessed by it. I was taking a shot at the medias obsession with him being gay.
For the record I couldn't give a shat less about his gayness.
I even received a breaking news update on my phone that the gay dude got cut. Seriously?

Re: Rams cut the gay guy

Yeah pretty ridiculous ... He was a 7th round pick... He was a long shot to make the roster anyway .... So what he gay ? He gets judged on his football skills n the nfl not his sexual preference ... Bye Felicia

Rams cut the gay guy

As I read down the comments I was fairly shocked by some of the defensive comments.

If ESPN, the NFL, and Opera can headline 'gay guy drafted', how does that differ from Danno's 'gay guy cut' headline.

For the record I am defending the NFL, ESPN, and Opera. Danno is just a copycat.

On Barry from MS comment - I don't think any aversion by franchises to Sam is because he is gay. A lot of teams do not care for a player that is more distraction than talent. He is a defensive version of Manziel.

I stand by be original statement from the day he came out. His sexual orientation is moot, had he gone through this on the pure merit of his talent he would have had a a much fairer evaluation.
