    Michael Sam shouldn't be "celebrated" or deemed a "hero" for telling everyone who he is attracted to, he should only be judged on if he can play football or not, anything other than that is irrelevant.

    Let's hope that is the case. Hansen is not celebrating him.

    Hanson acknowledged his own faults but welcomed Sam, saying it was "time to celebrate him." Sounds like he's trying to celebrate him with that quote.

    Like Dale Hanson or not, his take is blowing up right now. Without question the signature moment of his professional career number wise.

    Judging his college career as well as the recent developments, he should be highly celebrated

    I do think Hansen got it wrong saying "now he is a 3rd to 5th rounder". I think even pre-Senior Bowl he was thought to be in the 3rd to 4th round range.

    I agree, I saw him from 65-80 in rankings.

    No he shouldn't be, he is projected as a 5th round guy and 4th round at best, he's not in college anymore so he shouldn't be celebrated. Nobody outside of college football guru's and Missouri fans had never even heard of this guy before he came out.

    So what? If he wouldn't have came out, do you think that he would be getting the publicity he is getting now? Don't try and act like he's being celebrated for his college football accomplishments. He's a 4th round draft guy at best.

    I think players stunts should be killed before they turn ugly just to get a name out there, he dindt do this for any reason but to be heard about. It will probably work for him but the next guy is going to think of something bigger.

    Why is the media emphasizing Mr. Sam's proclivity to have sex with other men?

    I appreciated what his Dad had to say.

    A lot of people feel that way.

    Football players should not be chastised for not wanting this guy in their locker room showers. It's no different than cheerleaders being forced to have football players take showers with them. Stupidity.

    And what happens when this guy gets injured because of a severe tackle or block? Is it going to be deemed a "hate" tackle/block/crime?

    Bad idea all around. I hope he doesn't get drafted.

    The same people that say we should celebrate people who are different are usually the same people who chastise people for not accepting those differences. That reeks of hypocrisy.

    There will be a lot of new dynamics that come into play with a gay NFL player, .. with the showers and undressing/dressing in the lockerrooms being the most obvious.

    But there are others, ... when players hug and embrace after big plays or wins, when they pat each other on the butt, .. sometimes they are face to face, or cheek to cheek when they are trying to console after something bad happens.

    At the bottom of a pile, what if this players hand end up somewhere that make another player uncomfortable?

    When those things happen with this player, will anyone pull back or act differently?

    This will all be interesting to watch unfold.

    It's fun to read posts worrying about how high-income guys who went to at least a little college and who play around guys with DUIs, domestic violence rap sheets, drug arrests and major dog-fighting operations are concerned about being ogled in the showers by a guy who has been taking showers with naked guys for years and has yet to rape, grope or fondle the tender bits of any of them. Wait. "Fun" is the wrong word. I meant "depressing".
