Michael Sam Coming Out As Gay Is Only A Distraction Because NFL Personnel Want It To Be

michael-sam-missouri-image-ncaa-nfl

Michael Vick killed dogs; the Eagles welcomed him in.  Riley Cooper publicly screamed the n-word; Eagles kept him.  Ray Lewis was guilty of obstruction of justice in a murder case that you do not have to look far to realize he had more to do with; Ravens were so put off by this, they built their team around him as their face and leader of the franchise.  Ben Roethlisberger was involved in a rape case that led to a civil suit which was “settled”; the Steelers, the NFL bastion of civility, kept him on after a 4-game suspension (even lowered by the NFL from 6).  Leonard Little committed a DWI manslaughter and the Rams overlooked it – just as they did when he committed yet another DWI later in his career.

But Michael Sam, committing no crimes, but daring to be himself, an openly gay man, is a distraction. Continue reading

The Invisibility of The Knicks’ Iman Shumpert

iman-shumpert-shooting-knicks

We started the season under the guise that perhaps Iman Shumpert could get traded at some point.  Fans pointed towards his defense and those few foreshadowing sparks of offense he has had over his career as signs that there was potential that we could not overlook.

Then came the Kenneth Faried rumors and we saw that the league does not quite value Shump like we do, as Denver laughed off that trade possibility.  Still, trade rumors loomed. Continue reading

The Seattle Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers 23-17 to advance to Super Bowl 48 on a last-minute interception tip by Richard Sherman that fell into the hands of fellow defender Malcolm Smith.
