    And to think it will get even 'yellower'. Where the sport itself (NFL football, etc.) is often placed as a footnote in the article. Granted, it isn't anything new. Players' lives have always made headlines AND money -- even before Manziel's silly fingers rub.

    Let's see what happens with MSam. He makes the roster or not, there's more to come from some so called journalists.

    Journalist vultures.

    No, which is why I didn't post a thread about the ESPN report.

    Chris Long's response - which essentially said that nobody cares about this issue - was entirely football related. Chris was confirming that the Rams care about football, not Michael Sam's private life.

    Its a shame you don't get that.

    Re: Chris Long on ESPN report on Michael Sam's showering habits.

    Fact of the matter is, Av, that these ongoing stories (even if they do reek of yellow journalism as Flip said), these posts about MSam ... they in large measure have to do with his personal life, not just his 'football abilities'. You said it yourself, this is a football site and yet, here we have a thread that stems from a particular player's showering habits.

    Even if MSam's football talent is successful and he again makes headlines by being the 1st blah, blah, blah in pro football history to make the team roster, it will elicit further tabloid stories, sensationalist articles or just plain, "hey, the life of gay in the NFL is okay". It may come from TMZ, it may be reported in the local news sports section. But it is now implicit in his football career.

    T H A T is, has been, and will continue to be the punch line in MSam's football experience.
