Michael Sam and Tony Dungy

Former NFL coach-turned-NFL announcer Tony Dungy outraged gay groups by expressing his opinion on drafting gay NFL player Michael Sam.

The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts coach told the Tampa Bay Tribune he would not have drafted Sam because he believed Sam would be a distraction to his teams.

A gay Yahoo News writer who disagreed with Tony Dungy's opinion ignorantly compared homosexuality -- a sexual act -- with the struggles of the black race for equality.

From Yahoo Sports:

Speaking of backlash, Dungy will receive some — and he should. This will not make for a popular stance among the media, who typically look to Dungy with respect on his opinions, and it appears to fly slightly in the face of what he has said on the topic previously.

No one can appreciate a meritorious approach to building an NFL roster than Dungy, who played in the NFL as a minority in the 1970s, when racism likely was stronger and more prevalent in the league than it is it today. Had NFL teams held a similar stance about keeping African-Americans out of the NFL then as Dungy seems to be taking on the Sam issue now, then we'd be looking at a league that would have handicapped some of its best players.

The journalist ended his diatribe by asserting that Dungy's opinion about Sam was "in the minority." He obviously doesn't read his own comments section where most of his readers share Dungy's stance on the subject.

A Yahoo reader with the username "U Can'T Be Serious!" wrote:

@The writer..Once again, you and your colleagues missed the point. Why should Dungy be criticized? He said nothing bad about Sam as a person. You speak of Vick---Only you media clowns would be tripping off of him, not his teammates. And this is the point he was making. He was talking from a players perspective; that camaraderie could be fractured. If you guys would stop trying to [throw] homosexuality down sports organizations throats, you might not get this type of response.

And user "Oohay" wrote:

Agree with Coach, its the same reason that many teams didn't want the distraction of Tebow. Sam has got tons of media exposure, accolades from even the white house. Not for anything he's accomplished but rather his sexual preference.

      From downstairs. I am out this bish :peace:

      Cater 2 U was the dumbest song in this universe. I aint branging no house shoes when you come home. I aint fuggin with you, your doo rag OR your Dax grease. Fugg your waves. And I sure the hell aint rolling over when you tap me. You better get some while I am still SCHLEEP like my ex-husband used to do. But asking me to be an AWAKE, active, and willing loving participant at some ungodly hour is a NO.

      This is why I hated “Superwoman” by Karyn White back in the day. I was all of 10-11 yo and I already knew I was NOT ABOUT the submissive life. Fugg you sir. Squeeze ME some orange juice. Put some sugar and cream in MY fawkin coffee. TUH.

      I wonder why yhe gay movement is continually compared to the plight of Blacks in the Civil Rights movement, but not yo theJees in Holocaust, the petsecution of the Japanese in the internment camps or the Native Americans during the Trail of Tears. Why is our plight the scapegoat for others' agenda?

      the holocaust didnt last but a few years, slavery went on for centuries & civil rights is still an ongoing struggle.

      a lot of ppl dont know about the Japanese camps and their struggle in the U.S. is virtually over. they done came up PLUS got reparations.

      unfortunately, dont noboby really care about the native americans

      also the native americans are not a visible entity in society. they keep to themselves on their own reservations and do not participate in our politics. they never really asked for civil rights, they just want whitey to stay the fugg from round them.

      Thought I was the onliest one who thought that this was the stoopidest song ever written. When it came out I was already married had been married and I was like I aint done none of that chit. How did I get a husband.

    • CocoKhaleesi

      I don't know who told you they ain't asking for civil rights? They see fighting desperately to get these racist ole day walking mouth breathers to remove all racist mascots from all the sports which is still moving slowly...

    • Unshakable

      @User,

      I agree bew, but during that time, many of them were persecuted. And I suppose you are right about the Native Americans too. Boy, we have a lot of educating to do with the present generation.

      I am like Jenie.....I understand that they want to be treated like human beings, and rightly so, but you cannot begin to comparethe martyrdom of those lynched, Emmett Till, the 4 Black girls, the 3 civil rights workers, Malcom X, Dr. King, and Medgar Edvers to what they fight for. It pales on comparison.
