Michael Sam's OWN Documentary Postponed! Find Out Why HERE!

michael sams own documentary cancelled find out why here

We guess making the NFL team first is more important!

Oprah and Michael Sam will be putting a pause on their OWN documentary series that would follow the first openly gay player to be drafted by the St. Louis Rams and the NFL in general!

Here's what the president of OWN said:

"After careful consideration and discussion with the St. Louis Rams, The Untitled Michael Sam Project has been postponed, allowing Michael the best opportunity to achieve his dreams of making the team. OWN is about elevating and empowering people to achieve their best. It's clear that we, along with the world, recognize the opportunity that Michael has in this moment. We will continue to support him in his journey to earn a spot playing for the Rams."

Michael Sam's agent also had a say about the decision, commentating:

"After today's meeting with the Rams, we felt it is best to postpone the project. This will allow for Michael to have total focus on football, and will ensure no distractions to his teammates. Everybody involved remains committed to this project and understands its historical importance as well as its positive message."

Although we would have LOVED to see cameras following Michael Sam on this amazing journey of his — this decision makes the most sense!

The man who is breaking boundaries has enough pressure on him to make a professional football team — he doesn't need a whole bunch of cameras following his every move!

Especially since his spot on the team is not guaranteed!!!

Though we have a feeling he's primed to make the cut — knock on wood!!!

    What a dirt bag,
    they started shooting this documentary weeks ago, the kiss between Michael Sam and the boyfriend was all planned, rehearsed, lighted and staged
    And when it comes to Oprah, she is more than just a dirt bag, she's a hefty dirt bag
    I'M sure the Rams in no uncertain terms made it clear, they or their players were not to be used for some low rated TV show, owned by a racist

    This guy is a million times smarter than Lohan. Just because parasite Oprah wants to throw you some coin to follow you around at the most delicate point of your career, when you're trying to make a name for yourself, it doesn't mean you should let her.

    Head in the game is the smart move.

    Whatever.. The Rams told him either make your silly little show or try and make it in the NFL. It wasn't his idea, it's obvious by now all this crap was planned. The Rams aren't going to put up with that NONSENSE.
    When he's eventually cut, he can see if anyone's interested in his story then.

    They won't be.

    Pity. It would have been fun watching him get cut from the team.

    Oh for God sakes…what a non story!
    He is so low on the draft, it's embarrassing.
    Two guys kiss on camera! Pathetic attention for a major league sport.
