Michael Sam

Michael Sam is a name synonymous with failure. The 25-year-old openly gay football player quit the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League today.

This is the 2nd time Sam has walked away from the team that showed interest in him after every NFL team turned their backs on him.

"The last 12 months have been very difficult for me, to the point where I became concerned with my mental health," Sam tweeted Friday. "Because of this I am going to step away from the game at this time."

Sam was probably referring to the breakup of his on-again, off-again relationship with gold digger, Vito Cammisano.

Sam made his CFL debut 2 weeks ago. He took off from work last week, complaining of a sore back. But even before that, Sam did not endear himself to his Alouettes teammates. He also didn't show any of the flair for tackles or quarterback sacks that he was known for in college.

Sam's hometown St. Louis Rams drafted him in the 2014 NFL draft, but he did not make the final roster. Sam was also cut by the Dallas Cowboys who signed Sam as a favor to the NFL league office.

      He is whack. Ill say it again; this foolnever really wanted to play football. He did all of this to build a gay platform.

    • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

      My poor baby so emotional? This is a classic case of a confused colored boy. He let the White masses convince him that All lives matter, and are accepted. No guidance. He's a bottom who was dating a queen. Never a good mix. Like Nicki and Meek?? He didn't upgrade you bew?? Michael needs a Black king by his side to uplift his spirits?? feed his soul?? understand/share his plight?? swallow his babies?? He's like Lionel without the Commodores, sure he went Platinum, but he also got that ass tagged by Brenda?? it's like uhhhh, I think I lost my train of thought?? That damn Brenda was then, and will always be my Shero?? I garauntee she was the inspiration for Bernadine Harris???

      Wait..what happened to that kiss they made on camera to make a statement????!

    • mzwhang90210

      Welp!

    • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

      Oh I think he wanted to play, he just allowed the wrong people to convince him that THIS is bigger than you...That whole speech. He was convinced he would be an icon, a trail blazer with his Becko as his First Lady. Misguided?? Like the OWN docu, misguided. He probably figured he couldn't go wrong with O...Well, yeah??

      How is he considered a football player? He sucks (literally) lol

    • hottlanta

      His coming out was more about that white boy than him. They egged him on to do it, cheering and carrying on and where are they none GONE. Because they can't take his gayness to the bank and cash it.

    • hottlanta

      He said the word his "mental health". LBGTQ community doesn't like that word in their vocabulary/

    • 1/8

      I agree with hottlanta. Sam listened to the wrong people and once their advice drove him off a cliff, the ill advisers ran for the hills.

      Besides, we need to realize that what works for white queens, may not work for us.

    • 1/8

      Yeah, where is she?

    • oh.ok

      And then they cry about the DL epidemic...They gays can't win for losing in the black community. If he talks about his gayness he's doing too much and should stop. If he doesn't he's not saying enough.

    • LordeAmbler

      Right white people do that to straight people. Straight use us and then they done.

    • LordeAmbler

      Right. They support each other. Black people don't support each other. So him and frank ocean need to get together and figure some sht out.

    • Kanyade

      Vito? The gold-digger? I thought his family is rich. I agree what someone said below; the announcement of "I'm coming out...in the NFL" was more about Vito than Michael. Good luck to him.

    • barbeez

      Most people don't have a problem with gay people. I love me some gay males. Yeah, we weren't crazy about gay marriage but whateva ...it's the law. What's turning people off is this gay agenda. It's too much. Scandal, Empire, and How to Get Away with murder...trying to force homosexuality down the Black viewers throat. It's turning a lot of people off and ruining a lot of careers. Be gay and live. You don't have to make it an agenda. Gays have laws that protect them and most of all ...a majority of Americans embrace them as human beings that deserve love and respect. Now it's time for gays to just live and drop the agenda.

    • TheRealLee

      Perhaps Sam feels he was used to make statements. Unbeknown to a lot of people, he turned out to be a football player with no discernible NFL skills. Now Sam knows it. He also knows the guy who wanted to tag along for the glamour ride dropped him because there is no glamour and money to be had. So now he is having mental health issues. Interestingly, he is not the first gay player in the league, nor the last. There are active gay player as of now. Their sexuality is as unimportant to the public as the straight guy also playing in the league.

    • BlameItOnVanity

      well said!!!

    • Elevated Soul

      He's having a hard time because he think he is entitled just because he love packing fudge.He's also wigging because he put his all in that white boy and he left his tail,once he saw what a loser he is.

      He went in the NFL with an agenda and it has backfired on him and all of his shark teethe.

    • ramosyo

      Shark teeth! I'm hollering. U know he needs to find his inner man and cast aside his biiatch f33lings. Get back in the d*** game! Wth is his daddy?

    • the guest

      Perfectly said. I think he and his parasite thought he'd make a killing in endorsements. But that didn't happen. I think he likes football but he desires the rich freewheeling g-ay life more. No work all play. If he were white he would have achieved that goal. But the g-ays tend to prefer to make white g-ays rich and use black g-ays as symbols and pawns.

      And studs

    • stanhope

      He was immersed with the white people...just like OJ, Iyanla when she was stupid enough to believe Barbara Walters, and so on. He won't be able to come back from this as he handled everything all wrong. Boy white wife is gone with only a stretched @@@@ to show for it. He should have "played the game" created a reputation on the field and year 3 paraded his little white tart around. By then he could have had all of the white poontang he wanted not some porn actor's throwaway piece. Like Nancy said....when you're at a corner table and there's nothing much to say.....does he have to draw you pictures...does he have to shout out loud.....you'd better face it girl it's over. Now he's just another Jeopardy question rather than a big time player and highly paid sports announcer.

    • stanhope

      When they tried to put that charge card through it came back declined

    • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

      ??Touché?? O.J. truly loved being the White mans boy. Even his best of friends, those he was allegedly intimate with like James Woods...Who we now know is an outspoken racist who could know longer mask his feelings after 2008?? He'll share a woman, White woman, with a Black man, allegedly, but don't you dare put one in the White House...Anyway, digressing...Iyanla is a great example. Allowed Barbra, a friend of Oprah, steal her from Oprah...Only to leave her in the gutter broke, destitute, and mentally unstable. Much like Michael Same described himself. Very poignant correlation by you??

      Ok forgive me early on for my ignorance, but "taint" a bottom a queen too? And queens don't date queens do they? Lastly, I heard gay men don't really like "queens" considering they all flamboyant and girlie...please enlighten a curious one. ????

    • Canary Red™

      ???? you are a refreshing mess. I swear I would hang with you all day ( if u allowed me?). But I love your delivery on topics and facts we discuss. Just tickles my soul with joy I tell ya!!!!!

      And I am waiting on that lotto too baby!!! ???????????????

    • Canary Red™

      So true! IMO- I hate to say it but sometimes you got to play the politics.
      He should have waited n then came out n then sued if they discriminate(d).

      But he listen to the wrong advice...!

    • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

      ??XZAKLee, you said it all. No need for enlightenment?? It's like a Black person not liking a "Dayquan" for they tend to reinforce all the negative stereotypes. Michael seems like the type that needs to be held, where as a queen needs to be held, reassured, center of attn, rolls his neck, rolls his eyes, and can walk in a pair of heels just as good as any woman? I'm a queen? Yanno I read somewhere Michael was hanging with a few straight, Black football players recently. I thought to myself, that's great! I was hoping they would inform him, or reinforce,,,where he went wrong. Race definitely played a role. Black men learn a lot from experience. Things Michael may not have learned being special. A stand out athlete, YT friends, maybe he was able to avoid the Black experience like Rayven Symone was??? However, he's Black! America doesn't cry for Black men. Especially darker hue Black men, and SHIRLEY not gay Black men. With the latter, you have not only YT, but a large portion of Blk folk against you as well. He could have made his announcement and kept it pushing, instead they convinced him to make it a grand opening. Lights-Camer-Action---CUT! Cut got dammnit! They did the same with ol boy from Empire recently. Allowed Ellen to convince him to tape a special segment to discus his sexuality. There was no need for that. Black folks already knew, she did that to appease YT folks, who tend to be a lil, just a lil more tolerating when it comes to sexuality...I like him though, he's pro Black??And having Black friends to pull him back is probably why he hasn't become a gay spokesperson, yet. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but you're Black first, which is what I said recently to a well known, but not out Gay man. Black man. Gay YT friends are telling him to come out. I believe, he's too important to our community to do that now, anyway anyway soooooo digressing. Yeah, a mess. What a mess this has become. Jokes aside, I wish him well??

    • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

      ??????Thank you, same to ya?? It's tough outchea, we have to relax and let loose sometimes or we'll go nuts?? I may have already crossed said line, but yeah???

    • Canary Red™

      Well said!!! Great points you have made.
      I had no idea Ellen was behind Jussies come out party? makes sense now.
      And the white community is very understanding to any situation regarding your identity. They support -100% , referrals programs etc...but the black community not so much.
      For example, Let me tell my family /friends I'm stressed they would be like "your weak be strong depend on God etc"...but if I tell them white folks on my job I'm stressed they like "you need time off -Paid- you need to see a counselor - use your mental health benefits". They support that kind of stuff - I see it on my job all the time.
