Oprah Gives NFL Player Michael Sam A Reality Show On OWN

Oprah gave Michael Sam, the NFL's first openly gay player a reality show on OWN.  Will you be watching?

His teammates who want to remain anonymous think it will be somewhat of a distraction:  

Publicly, everyone on the Rams who has expressed an opinion about Sam has been supportive. But the same player said that privately, some players may just be expressing political correctness, rather than giving their honest views about having Sam on the team.

“Clearly I’m not sure how everyone feels, but from what I can tell so far I think it’s a little bit of both, honestly,” he said.

If players have a problem with Sam’s sexual orientation, that’s their problem. But if Sam is alienating teammates with a perception that he’s trying to make himself a star while everyone else is simply trying to make the roster, that could be a problem for him.

The gay agenda is real and they are using blacks.

I'm so over this dude already. Just pay football, you are not a matyr. I feel the only reason he came out was to increase his chances of being drafted because if no team would have taken him the NFL would have been considered "homophobic" by the media.

Wrong move....concentrate on staying on the team first, then do the show.

I think him & that awkward kiss stole the spot light from the young men who worked their butts off to get drafted.  I hate how the media is forcing gay acceptance & tolerance down everyone's throat, & if you don't accept or agree with it then you're somehow wrong; as long as the teammates aren't preventing him from playing & performing, then I don't care what he does when he turns off the lights. 

I feel like I need to do a press release to let people know I'm still straight and proud of it.

Someone needs to tap this young man on the shoulder and remind him that just because you get drafted it does not guarantee you a spot on the team. What happened to him just wanting to be treated like every other football player?
