Reporter’s Insightful Reaction to Michael Sam Will Make You Think [VIDEO]
Michael Sam, the All-American defensive end from the University of Missouri, made waves recently by announcing he's gay, sparking a conversation about whether the NFL is ready to accept homosexual players in the locker room.
While the debate rages on, Dale Hansen, a reporter for WFAA in Dallas, threw in his two cents with his thought-provoking opinion on the matter:
You beat a woman and drag her down a flight of stairs, pulling her hair out by the roots? You're the fourth guy taken in the NFL draft. You kill people while driving drunk? That guy's welcome. Players caught in hotel rooms with illegal drugs and prostitutes? We know they're welcome. Players accused of rape and pay the woman to go away? You lie to police trying to cover up a murder? We're comfortable with that. You love another man? Well, now you've gone too far!
Sam is projected to go anywhere between the third and fifth round of the NFL Draft, something which befuddles Hansen, since Sam was the SEC Defensive Player of the Year.
