His problem is that he does not play special teams and since he only has one skill set which he is not elite at he probably will need to go to Canada

I don't understand why he thinks that he is above everyone else and that others should go out of their way to connect with a rookie.  This is not how the NFL works.  This is not college at the end of the day these are grown men who go home to their families not back to their dorms to play madden and study together.

Seventh round picks don't always get a fair chance. Lots of guys better than him arent on an nfl roster.

Sam thought he had it made because of his announcement before the combine. Sam is not that good, he has limited skills and he tries to bring attention to himself which does not play well in the NFL if he played basketball that would play a little bit better

Meh.

I think Sam coming out was important whether he made a roster or not.

It said a lot that prominent players on the St.Louis Rams spoke highly of Sam's play, work ethic and demeanor while in camp. Jake Long and Coach Fisher said Sam was anything but a distraction.

What else would you expect them to say?  That they would even have answer such questions is proof enough that it was in fact a distraction.  They were most likely giving their answers directly from a script entitled: "how to keep a lid on this distraction"

There have always been homosexuals in the NFL and there will certainly be more.  By which gender you wish to be sexually gratified has absolutely nothing to do with the game.  It shouldn't be made into an issue or a platform.  You have the right to be gay.  You just don't have the right to play NFL football.

Long said on Twitter (not in front of cameras or to a reporter) the press, namely ESPN, was making more out of it than anything. Other than that, teammates who spoke to the press said Sam pretty much behaved just like everyone else in the lockeroom and on the field.

Sam wasn't being a distraction in that case as much as the media was when there was really no issue at all.

I think he so to speak ( came out ) before the draft and was french kissing his lover on TV, I think that more thang anything sent him to the 7th round. If people would be honest  about the situation, everybody ain't with this gay mess. I know I am not and no one will force me to accept that. Everyone on this board know that there are some well known posters that post on this board that are gay, I think they are genuinely good people but everyone don't need to know what goes on in your bedroom. I think if Mr. or Miss. Sams had just shut the "F" up and played ball he would be in the NFL right now.

 Teams are not going to put friction in their dressing room if they don't have too. Any SEC defensive player of the year ( witch Sam was ) would have been a 1st or 2nd round pick. Sam's lifestyle is the very reason Michael or Michelle is sitting home watching the NFL than a player in the NFL.

How do you kow they were french kissing? But back to Sams he was never going to be a 1st 0r 2nd round pick regardless. He is undersized and projected 3rd-5th round pick. But folks also forget Sams had a bad combine and personal workouts. I do agree he could friction in a locker room from the perspective if another player that has pull in the locker room thinks Sams is looking at him in the shower or coming out of the shower

There is no doubt that the "distraction" was mostly media driven.  Even if Sam was blame free in this regard, to a money making NFL franchise, a distraction is a distraction.  Then again, Sam wasn't entirely blame free.  He had to be talked out of his planned reality show.  Remember?  Then when he said he wouldn't host cameras in his home on draft day, that quickly changed and then came the orchestrated kiss.  For whatever reason, gay pride or an attempt to manipulate his draft status, Sam embraced the platform and became a rallying cry for those promoting the lifestyle.  Once he got on a team, things quieted down... because then it was business.  However, now that he won't likely get another chance in the NFL, the Oprah blame tour begins.  I actually feel quite sorry for the man.  If his number one priority was to play in the NFL, any guidance he was receiving in this regard was absolutely terrible.

I actually believe the NFL encouraged teams to draft Sam, and the Rams (who had late round picks to spare) obliged.  My guess is that when compensatory draft picks are announced for free agency, the Rams are going to do better than expected.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.
