Very cool. I hope my team drafts Sam.
 
2014-02-12 07:11:58 PM
He's completely correct, of course, but it's not really surprising that he would understand the issues.  He's from Texas, and he's obviously not a steer--do the math.
 
2014-02-12 07:27:05 PM
I hope the broncos get Sam. God knows the could use the extra defense.

I've never really liked Dale Hansen, but this was a good piece from him.
 
2014-02-12 07:37:03 PM
As far as I can tell all the hand-wringing is coming from "anonymous" old men in the front offices, not the young men in the locker room.

It's pretty much a rule that when somebody says "they would be uncomfortable" they really mean "I am uncomfortable". Well guess what? NFL teams are not run in order to make anonymous mid-level functionaries "comfortable".

Something happen to the link?  It goes to a "this domain is being squatted" page now.

I never heard of him, but this has to be his best piece.  Flawless victory.

So, who was the NFL's Jackie Robinson?

I'm pretty surprised that this guy is (will be) the first openly-gay player in the NFL.
 
2014-02-12 07:55:38 PM
And seriously, if you're the SEC defensive player of the year, you've kinda proved that you have what it takes to make it.  By announcing beforehand he's making all 32 teams cast a vote as opposed to the one that would have drafted him otherwise.

Well played, sir.  Well played.

Guys like Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin have said many, many times that there have been gay players in the NFL, and if you think you never had one on your team or played against one, you are mistaken.

They said that all the matters is 1. can they help you win games and 2. can they help you win games.

I'm a Bucs fan. If he can contribute, improve their defense and help them win another Super Bowl, he can put his willy in anything he likes. I could not care less.

It's Tampa, too, so he'll have just all kinds of options...

I concur. The Bucs need more talent in their defense, among other things. Go Bucs!

He'll be welcome on any NFL team as long as he doesn't suck.

So true.  I love the wasy this is playing out.  Gives the whole off-season for people to get the fark over it.

Not like they completely will come draft time, but at least it is not something sprung during game time.

If we put Jack in charge of NFL teams we'd be well passed this issue by now.

Why would any NFL team draft controversy in the locker room?

Link farked, but if it was Dale Hansen I can imagine what he said, and I would approve.

bojon: Why would any NFL team draft controversy in the locker room?


Seems like about 5 players reacted negatively. Guys who played with him at Missouri didn't care, including guys (Sheldon Richardson, anyhow) in the NFL, and it didn't affect their locker room. Players want to win. It'll be an annoying media story, but players care a whole lot less than the media (and fans) do.

timujin: I thought Jon Stewart put it a little better on TDS Monday night


Also, it should be pointed out that Jon Stewart's audience probably has a much higher % of people who agree with this viewpoint than Dale Hansen's does, so Hansen wasn't exactly playing to his audience here.

Hansen can be a bit of a blowhard and a prick, but kudos to him for this piece.

I get a kick out of the fact that it's a 'caster on the station that used to be owned by the Dealeys of the Dallas Morning News, the ones who hated JFK and were probably thrilled that it was in the plaza named after his old man that Kennedy got killed. Right-wing nutjobs like that hearing something like this on their old station - they are probably powering Dallas with their grave rolling. Good.

That was cool. Can't wait to see how the fans of opposing teams react to this player. I stopped going to games because of obnoxious fan behavior at Niner games (and I'm a Niner fan!). I hope he's not treated any worse than any other opposing team's player.

I can't wait for the legislators in the Tea Tard controlled states that have NFL teams to try to enact some type of legislation to bar gay people from participating in contact sports. It may sound silly, but judging by what has been going on in places like Kansas, I'm sure they will try it.

I was treated to this in real life over the holidays when my sisters father-in- law treated us all to lecture on how uncomfortable

Stupid phone! Anyhow, a man who has never set foot on a military base launched into a lecture about how uncomfortable our exalted servicemembers would be with the homogheys, at which point my father turned around and said : ' Maybe you should actually ask my son how he felt about while he was doing his 10 years.'

By the time the draft comes around, ESPN will have the nation believing he should have been a first round pick and there will be outrage no matter what.

There are gay guys in the NFL right now and their teammates know it.
 
2014-02-12 10:48:17 PM
I hope Mr. Hansen enjoyed his job. A Million Moms are going to be calling for his resignation. You know, because they aren't comfortable with him.
 
2014-02-12 10:49:42 PM
One gay guy in the locker room, meh.
Wait till there's two.
 
2014-02-12 10:51:13 PM
Remember Mr. Hansen from the "Pony Exce$$" 30/30...and he calls it right on the nose here.  Awesome.
