Congrats to Michael Sam on his being selected by the Rams and best of luck to you on your NFL career.  Is anyone shocked by the negative tweets, responses?  You’d have to be an idiot to think they would be silent.  The NFL is a sport in which its participants are trained, conditioned mentally and physically to be animals.  While I for one have no issue with Michael Sam being gay and coming out, I do not believe that the vast majority of current NFL players will warm to it. They will likely remain silent or shrug it off as no big deal, but quietly will object.  I believe that many of the owners will not openly say so, but they heavily instructed there staff NOT to draft him., for several reasons.  I wish Michael Sam well, however; I think it will be an extremely difficult year for him should he make the team.  Personally, if he can play at this level and proves that he can, his personal choice is irrelevant.  I hope that many others view it the same way.
