Openly Gay Football Player Michael Sam Drops Bomb: 'I Am Not The Only Gay Person In The NFL'

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzFootballNFLMichael Sam

no title

Michael Sam was the first openly gay football player to be selected in the NFL draft.

That is a huge milestone for the concussion-causing, overly macho sport.

But Sam isn't the only one, according to him! He said:

"I am not the only gay person in the NFL. I'm just saying there is a lot of us. I respect the players that did reach out to me and had the courage to tell me that they were also gay, but they do not have the same courage as I do to come out before I even played a down in the NFL.

Was it a risky move? Yes. But at that moment, the reason why I came out is I thought it wasn't going to be a big deal. Maybe I was naive. Maybe I thought it was 2014, and people will understand that there's gay NFL players. There's gay athletes everywhere. But I was clearly wrong. It was a huge deal.

The players who have reached out to me and told me about their sexual orientation, it just means a lot. But I will never say anything about who they are, what teams they are [on]. I'm just saying there's some famous people, and I'm not the only one."

That's incredible!!

It'd make sense to assume that obviously there'd be a percentage of gay men playing in the NFL but "some famous" players??

Sam makes it seem like even he was shocked at how many players reached out to him.

We hope others can follow his example. It's time to swing wide the closet doors in professional sports and let the fab out!!

It's 2015 people. The time for equality for all is now. Thank goodness for people like Michael, who are willing to take that first, crucial step!

Wait… Miley Cyrus Knows The Girl Who Was Getting Too Close To Patrick Schwarzenegger In Cabo!?

We've been pretty infatuated with this whole Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger Spring Break story… but it just got taken to a whole 'nother level!

We were wondering why Miley was so nonchalant about those scandalous photos, but we guess that's because she actually knows the girl that Pat was drinking with!

Apparently, shortly after Miley and Patrick started dating, she went with a group of his friends to a USC game, and Natalie just so happened to be part of their group.

This is a pretty smart move.

While the games of rugby and America's NFL are fundamentally different, there are still some similarities when it comes to the skill set that's needed.
