Expert: ESPN Reporting On Sam’s Shower Habits Reinforces Stereotypes That Gay Men Are To Be Feared In Locker Room
ESPN has come under fire from Michael Sam’s teammates, coaches and fans after they reported on the St. Louis Rams rookie’s showering habits.
It seems we’ve jumped into the pool of relativism since we got wind of Josh Gordon’s season-long suspension for marijuana use. You have the indignant faction that can’t believe someone who smokes weed gets a year while Ray Rice skates with a two-game suspension
For Michael Sam, it’s time for another waiting game, another chapter of waiting for the phone to ring and seeing what someone on the other end says about his future.
The last time the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted a rookie who made an immediate impact and started opening day was Kendrell Bell in 2001, but first-round draft pick Ryan Shazier has all the skills of an NFL starter and the backing of defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau.
Michael Sam is about to get one last chance to show the St. Louis Rams why he belongs on their 53-man roster.
He may be known for his trash-talking, but that doesn’t mean Sherman isn’t one of the most talented cornerbacks currently in the NFL. As this year’s cover athlete for Madden 15, he’s out to prove there no such thing as the “Madden Curse”.

If before the 2013 season you would tell Bolt fans that Cal rookie Keenan Allen would become the “go-to” guy for much of last season, many may have scratched their head a time or two. When all was said and done last season, Allen emerged not only as the Chargers’ top threat, but one of the top wide receiver stories around the NFL.
St. Louis Rams defensive end Chris Long is firing back at ESPN over a story they reported on his shower habits.
In December of 2011 the NFL formally announced the suspensions of two Redskins players, tight-end Fred Davis, and left-tackle Trent Williams. Both players received a four game suspension without pay, for testing positive for marijuana three times throughout the course of the season.
