As you know already - Michael Sam, the All American College Football Star - has come out as an openly gay male aspiring to be in the NFL. This comes as a shock to many and it has made headlines all over the nation today and over the past weekend. But, I am hearing there is another side to this whole thing. I am hearing that dude has been gay and open for quite sometime for those that know him at Missouri. “It’s a big deal. No one has done this before. And it’s kind of a nervous process, but I know what I want to be. I want to be a football player in the NFL.”But, I have gotten some intel that seems to suggest that all is not what it seems. First of all, the word is Sam has been openly gay for AT LEAST his whole college career. I mean, he's been out and about with a boyfriend on the yard and all that. What I got via email is that Sam may have been threatened from the Pink Mafia that he needs to come out like this or he'll be outted like THAT. Now, Sam was already a prospect expected to go in the middle of the draft somewhere, but now he's probably going to see things play out a bit differently now that its a media event. The conversation can be controlled in this way and he can be seen as a pioneering hero of sports. But, from what I was told is that he didn't plan to bust out the scene as a gay man. It was more of an orchestration and concerted effort. How true this is, I don't know.
But, what is more crazy, is that the source, who is in the NFL, says that there are a number of professional athletes that are already gay. Some of them are big, big names. I just cannot say who. But, these guys are huge names and also its known that they are gay in many instances. The source says its actually no big deal and that they dudes in the locker room don't much care what some dude does in his private bedroom. So…hmmmm….
