Michael Sam

Michael Sam will probably never play another down in the NFL — and he has no one to blame but himself.

Sam, a 24-year-old SEC Defensive Player of the year out of Missouri, announced his homosexuality in February, leading many to believe it was a calculated attempt on his part to boost his chances at the NFL draft in May. Being an SEC standout was no guarantee that Sam would be drafted at all. Even more suspect was the fact that Sam apparently inked a deal with Oprah OWN Network to film a reality TV series before he was even drafted. Then there was the wedding cake incident when Sam tongue kissed his feminine boyfriend on national TV on draft day. ESPN’s cameras were there to film the 7th round draft pick licking icing off his boyfriend’s face.

Michael Sam and Vito Cammissano

Grown men recoiled at the sight of St. Louis draftee Michael Sam licking cake icing off the lips of his boyfriend, Vito Cammissano. Only seconds before “the kiss”, these same men cheered St. Louis for having the courage to draft Sam with its 249th pick in the NFL draft on Saturday. 31 other teams had bypassed the SEC Defensive Player of the Year who was projected as a mid- to late round draft pick.

ESPN taped Sam’s reaction and aired the tape immediately after his draft pick was announced. Social media’s reaction to “the kiss” was wildly mixed. Some applauded the NFL, St. Louis and Sam for their courage. While others — including professional and college football players — expressed their distaste with ESPN for repeatedly showing “the kiss” on air. Many believed ESPN went too far.
