    At the Scouting Combine, NFL coaches and team executives made it clear they were only interested in how openly gay prospect Michael Sam could help them on their football field. But a study of Twitter reactions to Sam’s announcement indicates some markets might be more ready to accept him than others. Via Outsports, an Emory…

    Sam as a football player and sam as an activist, negates the former. Why add this trouble to the mix?

    Why is everyone making such a big deal. I think he came out just to get attention. Hope he doesnt cry when he drafted late and use the excuse cuz hes gay. He was a projected to be a late round to begin with. Just cuz hes gay doesnt mean he should get special attention. This isnt really news and nothing to do with the chiefs.

    I think he came out, to be honest and not hide for who he is. He would be questioned about it at the combine and it would come out then, so at least he can do it on his own terms. He has not continued to make it a story. Attention seekers keep bringing it up to keep the spot light on them. He came out publicly before the combine and basically went about his business.

    Yea im not realpy blaming the guy. it was a smart move if he was going to come out to get ahead of the story and on his terms. Its just hes getting so much attention about where he fits. He wouldnt be on anyones radar if he never said anything. Now if he had alot of talent and was a top pick then id be interested where he goes cuz of his talents but not cuz hes gay. I just question his motives for coming out that hes gay I guess. More power to him though. All he proved is that he gots guts.

    Getting a lot of attention is often a great career move anyway.

    Hard to fault a guy for THAT, in my opinion.

    Il bet after all this attention he will still be a bust if you can even say a late round pick can be a bust.
