  •  Is it homophobic to report on homophobia? (0+ / 0-)

    That's basically what you're arguing here. It's a news story because if he makes it into the NFL,  he'll be the first gay player drafted into that league.  

    Seems like you're overreacting to speculation that his stock might drop.  Keep in mind that all the media does re the NFL during the off season is speculate.  Who will get traded. Who will get drafted? Who will improve? Who won't.

    •  You've confused me with someone else. (0+ / 0-)

      Because that's not at all what I'm arguing.  I'm taking issue with the idea that a team's not wanting to  "invite that type of headache into their locker room" is based on something other than homophobia.  

      Sports teams deal with all manner of "headaches" on a daily basis where their players are concerned.  I see no reason why this so-called "headache" (a term that implies Sam's sexual orientation is some kind of problem to the dealt with) should be any more difficult than any other.
