Actor and former pro football play Terry Crew speaks on his experience in the NFL which he considers a ‘cult”.
Did we see any other draftees kissing anyone after they were drafted? Seems really weird and staged. Michael Sam can do whatever he pleases behind closed doors but throwing his homosexual lifestyle literally down the throat of NFL fans on television was sure to backfire.

Last Tuesday, Michael Sam Sr. was at a Denny’s near his home outside Dallas to celebrate his birthday when his son sent him a text message.
Dad, I’m gay, he wrote.
The party stopped cold. “I couldn’t eat no more, so I went to Applebee’s to have drinks,” Sam Sr. said. “I don’t want my grandkids raised in that kind of environment.
“I’m old school,” he added. “I’m a man-and-a-woman type of guy.” As evidence, he pointed out that he had taken an older son to Mexico to lose his virginity.
Never heard anything about this Michael Sam character.Still am confused as to why he must hoist his homosexuality onto the general public before he has played one down in the NFL.Seems like a private matter that should be kept private, instead of trying to gain acclaim for his choice of men over women. We will see how this effects his career and if this open the floodgates in professional sports and becomes a trend or just a blip on the screen.

Coaches at the University of Missouri divided players into small groups at a preseason football practice last year for a team-building exercise. One by one, players were asked to talk about themselves — where they grew up, why they chose Missouri and what others might not know about them.
As Michael Sam, a defensive lineman, began to speak, he balled up a piece of paper in his hands. “I’m gay,” he said. With that, Mr. Sam set himself on a path to become the first publicly gay player in the National Football League.
