    Let the circus begin:

    [h=1]Michael Sam gets a reality show on Oprah’s network[/h] Posted by Michael David Smith on May 14, 2014, 7:14 PM EDT
    [​IMG] APRams defensive end Michael Sam is getting a reality show.
    The Oprah Winfrey Network announced today that it is working with Sam on a reality TV project that will show his life as the first openly gay player in the NFL.
    “We are honored that Michael is trusting us with his private journey in this moment that has not only made history but will shape it forever,†Oprah Winfrey said in a statement. “I am proud of the focus on authentic storytelling in our new documentary series format.â€
    There’s been no word on how much access the Rams will give the reality TV cameras, but it wouldn’t be surprising if the team has some qualms about it. NFL teams generally prefer for their rookies to put all their energy into football, not outside projects. That’s why A.J. McCarron quickly distanced himself from it when his fiancee, Katherine Webb, was reportedly in talks for a reality show. And that may be why Sam, in a statement, made clear that his focus is on making the team.

    “Like every player out there working to make a team right now, my focus is on playing football to the very best of my ability,†said Sam. “I am determined. And if seeing my story helps somebody else accept who they are and to go for their dreams too, that’s great. I am thankful to Oprah for her support and excited to work together.â€
    Working with Oprah will be nice, but working for Jeff Fisher is what Sam really needs to do in the next three months, if he still wants to be a Ram in four months.

    Oh for fucks sake. This is exactly why all the other teams passed on this fucker; They didn't want the circus that accompanies him.

    Would Oprah give a reality show to a gay NFL player if that player was white?

    HELL FUCKING NO!

    Racist cunt

    "Remember me for sending you home with tears of joy or tears of sorrow". Who the hell says something like that?

    He's just interested in being the center of attention. That's why he's gonna have a target on his back.

    This was recorded before he was even drafted.

    i'm afraid i have to agree with you although it isn't quite as horrific as the new show tyra has planned for VH1 about transsexuals... the brainwashing and agendas are being ramped up although i think it could be counterproductive for them.
    the "plans" are becoming too obvious and desperate.

    This guy might be the biggest drama queen to ever be drafted. And yes I'm including Randy Moss.

    btw, the rams shouldn't give the c-nt ANY access ( it really isn't about the game of football, it's about a black man who is gay). let it not come to fruition or if it does let it shrivel up and die.

    This guy won't make it through training camp.

    While I would assume that most of his teammates could care less about him being a fruit I'm sure many of them were annoyed/grossed out/disgusted by the cake makeout sessions (although I would blame espn for that one).

    With this announcement it is pretty obvious that he is an attention starved camera whore and that is what really is going to piss them off.

    At first I believed him when he said he wanted to only be another football player. Now I'm pretty sure he is all about attention whoring and will at some point use the fact that he is gay as an excuse for any unfavorable decisions the front office makes about him.

    I actually don't blame him for this.

    He's aware that he is a marginal nfl talent whom almost wasn't drafted and whose career will only be a couple of years. Mine as well play the pc card (he never will have to play it himself, the left wing media will do it for him) in order to tip the scales in your favor on draft day and then cash in on celebrity while you can. He already has a visa commercial. He will receive tons of "courage" and "sportsman" types of awards. He'll be a guest at the state of the union and presenter at the mtv awards. He'll also make a killing on the speaking circuit.

    His successful media strategy is already paying dividends and even if he never gets on the nfl field he likely won't ever have to work a real job in his life

    These type of reality shows are short, and they don't pay much. This is a really bad career move. I blame his agent. The billionaire team owners are not stupid, I don't think the media tricked the rams into drafting him.
    I think he can be a situational player, like on 3rd and long zone defenses, or to assist in end zone celebrations involving cake.

    I agree with Jschmuck completely
    but what gay black guy can resist Oprah, thats bigger than the NFL

    I just can't believe the Rams took on the legal risk
    after what happened with the Dolphins

    i thought i was being cynical when he came out. it seemed like a smart way to be the darling of the touchy feely people even if he doesn't make it in the pros.

    if he didn't get picked, it would be because he was gay.
    if he gets cut, some will say he didn't get a chance because he's gay.

    i hope he does well and we can get past all this bullshit.
